Meadowlands Pick-4, Races 7-10, Friday, Aug. 1, 2014
Saturday night I played two tickets of $6 each and really wasn't close. I've hit the Pick-4 three times this meet. Championship meet totals: Standard ticket, 19 plays, -$54.40. Whale ticket: 12 plays, +$162.75.
Standard ticket: 50 cent play: 59/13/16/68 = $8
Whale ticket: 50 cent play: none
Race 7: (9) Erle Dale N is a classy sort who can be tough here if ready off a month's layoff. I'll also use (5) Hang Ten, as he ships back in for Burke while in good form.
Race 8: (1) By And By Hanover and (3) Fly Angel Fly are the two obvious fillies in this 2-year-old trot. These races can be difficult because of potential breakers.
Race 9: (1) French Laundry looks pretty tough to catch in this 2-year-old filly trot but I'll also use (6) Curfew, a good looking prospect for a top barn.
Race 10: (6) Lovely Jan debuts for a top trotting barn off a solid prep. (8) Iluvmyjimmychoos broke leaving in last at Harrah's but won debut two back.
