Some days you just wake up and feel like taking a little bit of a risk. Today, my friends, is one of those days. I want to gamble today. I gathered some of our other office horse players, including Wolfpack member Big T, and my great friend Matt Brown and together we're playing a Pick Six at Gulfstream. Obviously it's a long shot, but scared money doesn't win. If you guys don't want to spend this kind of money, feel free to break this ticket up into Pick Three's or a Pick Four or even a Pick Five as they are all available to you. Let's. Win.
BlackJack's Gulfstream Pick Six:
Race Five: The (4) Pocket of Candy is hard to ignore with Paco Lopez aboard this afternoon. We want to start strong though, so also use (1), (2) and (5).
Race Six: The (6) Sturgeon trained by Jorge Delgado and ridden by the excellent Irad Ortiz, Jr. will be tough to beat here. If anyone can do it I'm looking at the (3) or the (5).
Race Seven: The (5) Luxury Suite is trained by Jason Servis and, again, ridden by Irad Ortiz, Jr and figures to be the favorite in this race. He has great connections and has shown strong works. Combine with the (1) and (4).
Race Eight: I nearly singled the (2) Catharsis in this race, but when you have a group together you can take some chances and add some more horses, so we did just that by adding the (8) and (9).
Race Nine: The (7) The Gipper will be the favorite, trained by Jorge Navarro and ridden by Jose Ortiz. He has worked excellently and is dropping in class today. The Gipper should win for fun. Also use the (1) and (2).
Race Ten: To finish this thing out let's take the (4) Gunslinger on top. Gunslinger has looked good against better competition and should be able to stalk this pace. Also rounding this one out with the (2) and (11).
