Meadowlands Pick-4, Races 7-10, Friday, April 11, 2014
Saturday night I used three singles and two of them won and I had three of four but lost my $8 ticket and my $20 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: 38 plays, 0 hits, -$1,124. Whale ticket: 16 plays, one hit, -$2,922.50.
Standard ticket: $1 play: 1238/12578/4/35 = $40
Whale ticket: none
Race 7: Very tough race to start the sequence. I'll use all four of my listed contenders.
Race 8: Another very tough race. I'll use five horses, my top four listed contenders and the two horse.
Race 9: (4) Major Look had a tough, long, uncovered trip and held gamely in last; classy mare gets a better spot for third start off the layoff.
Race 10: (3) Zuppa Inglese had weak cover and finished strongly. That's my top pick but I'm also using (5) Riverfest, a beaten favorite that broke in last.
