After a few days off lets get back to making some money. Hawthorne has a nice under the radar early pick 4 carryover today of over $8,000. The sequence looks very capable and I expect a mid range payout with not a lot needed to invest at taking a shot.
Hawthorne Race#2 Post time 2:39 central
Race#2 A talented group of maiden 2 year olds open the sequence. The 3 will be the favourite and deserves to be but is not a lock. Good looking replay shows is best of horses he ran against, did lug/green in stretch or may have won at first asking. Unknowns in the race are 1,2,5. I will start with keying the 3 but use a saver ticket with 1,2,4,5
Race#3 On paper two horses stand above the rest 1,6. If the 1 can run back to her races at AP she wins going away. 6 can steal it on the front end. A very small saver on the 4 based on an improving horse that can close if pace backs up
Race#4 Take note of a rare 5 furlong claiming race at hawthorne 4,8,9 are my main contenders.
An invader from Tdn has an outside shot too.
Race#5 The distance is 6 furlong which makes the 6 not a lock to win, I always like dropping speed and will be a key on a couple of tickets. 9 is my closer with a shot.
Since I do like each leg I will key a couple and hit the all button in a few legs with keys in the other legs.
A small playable ticket could be 3/1,6/2,4,8,9/6,9 = $8 for a .50 cent or
all/1,6/all/6 = $56 ticket
Good luck everyone, back tomorrow with a few more carryover plays
