Meadowlands Pick-4, Races 7-10, Friday, Feb. 7, 2014
Last night I played a $16 ticket which lost. I had three winners. On my big ticket experiment my $60 ticket also lost. I have one hit so far this year for $,1144.50 on the whale ticket. Meet totals: 14 plays, 0 hits, -$500. Whale ticket: four plays, one hit, -$711.50.
Standard ticket: $1 play: 37/49/1278/169 = $48
Whale ticket: $1 play: 23457/1479/12457810/1269 = $560
Race 7: This is a tough race, but to keep the cost down, I'm using two, (3) Coragioso and (7) Brookroad Knight.
Race 8: On my standard ticket, I'm going to use (4) Spirit Of Desire and (9) Sarandon Blue Chip. Sarandon Blue Chip was on my horses to watch list off a fast closing effort in last. But this is a wide open race.
Race 9: This is a tough trot. I used all four of my contenders again.
Race 10: This is another tough race. I used three horses here and I'm not at all confident.
