Meadowlands Pick-4, Races 7-10, Saturday, May 10, 2014
I wasn't close in the late Pick-4 last night. Championship Meet totals: three plays, -$116. Whale ticket: two plays, -$112. For the winter meet, I had one hit for $1,144.50 on the whale ticket and no winners on the standard tickets. Winter Meet totals: 44 plays, 0 hits, -$1,236. Whale ticket: 17 plays, one hit, -$2,938.50.
Standard ticket: 50 cent play: 136/167/69/2568 = $36
Whale ticket: 50 cent play: 1356/167/69/2568 = $48
Race 7: The TVG Championship is a good race and a lot of horses have a chance. I'll use (1A) Sweet Lou entry, my top pick, (3) Thinking Out Loud and (6) Warrawee Needy.
Race 8: (1) Tobago Cays will be a short price off the drop. (6) See And Ski is a threat on best. (7) Brees Creek needed last and may be some value.
Race 9: Pretty good race. I like (9) Ok Commander but I think (6) Ontario Success has a shot at a mild upset.
Race 10: (5) Urgent Action will be a short price but I don't really trust him, so I'll use all four of my contenders here.
