Meadowlands Pick-4, Races 7-10, Thursday, March 20, 2014
Saturday night I had an $8 ticket which lost and no whale ticket. I have one hit so far this year for $1,144.50 on the whale ticket and no winners on the standard tickets. Meet totals: 30 plays, 0 hits, -$1,000. Whale ticket: 12 plays, one hit, -$2,599.50.
Standard ticket: $1 play: 3/16/458/357 = $18
Whale ticket: $1 play: 23/1367/458/357 = $72
Race 7: (3) Stormin Rustler was used hard from post 10 in last. There are at least five ways you could go here but I'm going to try using this as a single on one ticket.
Race 8: (1) KZ Beach Girl was sharp with two moves in last. (6) Don't Blame Her gets a better post and has back class.
Race 9: Pretty tough trot here. All three of my horses are dropping, (4) Gaelic And Garlic, (8) Play Fair, and (5) Big Payout.
Race 10: (5) Ace Of Pace is third back off a layoff and likes this track. (3) Trevor's Bebe takes a key drop. (7) Synergy Seelster qualified well.
