Overall View

One of my favorite races to bet, Allowance race on the turf with a ML favorite of 4-1. These types of races good priced horses always come out and very rarely is the wining the favorite at 3-1. In these types of races I look for speed, stamina and an outside post and #10 has all of those at a 6-1 ML price. I am also a big Billy Mott fan on the turf on a little bit of a drop. A horse that I left out of my tickets that has a chance to run a big race at a great ML price is #1. The horse should get out of the gate and run her ideal race sitting right off the pace. But the last time she started on the rail she got out great sat right off the pace and finished ninth, but that was a turf sprint not a mile long race. If you are willing to spend more money in trifectas or superfectas I would throw the 1 in the ticket. If you are a big pick 4 or pick 5 player, you could go deep in the race.

Picks: 10,2,3,6
