Finally today we have the reopening of two more racetracks to add to our calendar. We have Golden Gate out west and our own Penn National track in Charles Town, West Virginia. Tomorrow Santa Anita opens back up and Saturday we get Churchill Downs. This is going to kick off a great four days of racing, so we're going to go big today. We've got a Pick Six at Charles Town and Pick Fours at Charles Town and Golden Gate. I can't wait for the cards to start. Additionally, Lo Duca and I will be live tonight for Photo Finish for the return of racing to Charles Town. Join us and guests live at 7pm ET on the blog and on twitter @BlackJackBurner and @PauLoDuca16. Let's get it.
Lo Duca's Golden Gate Late Pick Four:
Race Six: 2,4,6
Race Seven: 2
Race Eight: 2,3,5,6,8
Race Nine: 1,2,3,4,5,8...$45 for 50 cents
BlackJack's Charles Town Early Pick Four:
Race Two: Top choice is the (2) Bullgrats. This horse last ran second at a level higher than this in March at Charles Town and the drop here should be enough to get the job done. The (8) Rock On does worry me slightly as his best could win, so I'll add him as well.
Race Three: This race is very deserving of the ALL button because it is nearly impossible to draw a line through any horse in the field. In fact, the ML favorite is nearly indistinguishable from a 10-1 shot. ALL.
Race Four: Favorite here is (2) Caladan, who was a winner last time out and also takes a drop here. This is a horse who previously ran at Laurel which is a bit classy for this field considering how he ran there. Should be able to handle the 8.5 furlongs without much issue as well. Also including (6) and (8).
Race Five: To me, this shapes up as a two horse race at the top with the (1) and the (2). I'm using both, but favor the (2) TheSweetestTaboo. She's a winner of three in a row and I like her chances to make it four here tonight.
BlackJack's Charles Town Pick Six:
