Everyone who reads these knows my affinity for Canadian racing. I like the country, the people and the twenty cent increment. I think tonight we have a nice little late Pick Four at Assiniboia that could pay decent money with some live prices in the ticket. So, let's go north of the border (virtually, since we can't actually do it) and bet some horses, eh?
Assiniboia Late Pick Four:
Race Four: This race features the two best riders at Assiniboia and two of the best trainers on the two best horses in this race. There is very little to distinguish the (3)Witts Question and the (5) Tres Magnifique in terms of quality. I'm going to use both of them and hope for the higher price.
Race Five: My top choice here would be the (4) My Kinda Gal at 5-1 ML, but this race is one where you have to spread. Most of these horses do not love to win. I think the (6) Hurricane Emily is definitely live at a price as she should be the speed here and she's a juicy 15-1. I'm also using the (5), (7) and (8).
Race Six: I'm not going to criticize you for using the (2) Catalina Dreamin, the ML favorite at 9-5, but I'm going to leave her out. I just don't see it. I think that both (7) Vallentay and (9) Grayross Gracie are better than she is and both are better prices. I'm using the (7) and (9) and trying to beat the favorite here.
Race Seven: Again my top choice here is a bit of a price, it's the (3) Mac's Image, who is dropping from Maiden Special Weights down to Maiden Claimers tonight. I know he ran awful in his debut, but he has good connections and this field isn't blowing anyone out of the water. I'm using him, as well as the (5), (9), and (10).
BlackJack's Assiniboia Late Pick Four: 3,5/4,5,6,7,8/7,9/3,5,9,10 for $1, a total bet of: $80. *Can be bet in .20 cent increments*
