EDIT: After this was published, Parx cancelled their races due to cold weather. I have come up with a Turf Paradise ticket instead. The ticket above is what I'm playing today along with my bonus plays listed below. Let's get it!
What a weekend, eh? We had two solid Conference Championship games yesterday, with our Super Bowl matchup being set. It's San Francisco vs. Kansas City and I can't wait for that one to happen. Should be an unbelievable game. But, in the meantime, we have Martin Luther King, Jr. Day today and that means an unusually large slate of horse racing across the country. Even though we have more tracks to bet on, for some reason I am drawn to my Monday regular, Parx. I'm going back there for a little holiday Pick Four action to start this week off right.
BlackJack's Parx Pick Four:
Race One: The (10) Heroic Officer is tough to not like off a solid start at Keeneland, this field should be less trouble. Also using (7-9).
Race Two: This one looks like a single to me. We're going to roll with (2) Mimi and Charley to get to the front and stay there.
Race Three: The (6) Snidely is a closer with late speed and should have some pace to run into in this one. Also include (5) and (8).
Race Four: Let's get some solid coverage here. My top choice is (7) Bourbon Honey with a very effective trainer/jockey combo today. Also use (1), (2), (6), and (11).
BlackJack's Early Parx Pick Four: 7,8,9,10/2/5,6,8/1,2,6,7,11
Ticket Cost: $30.00
BlackJack's Bonus Picks of the Day:
Miami Heat -6
Denver Nuggets +2.5
Golden State Warriors +6.5
Let's cash some tickets, baby!
