How to play the Pick 4

Daily Racing Form National Digital Edition - - News - by Kenny Peck


Last time out, O DIONYSUS was a beaten 2/5 fa­vorite be­hind High Roller in the Frank White­ley -- a race which fea­tured four of th­ese same run­ners -- but he could not have had a much more dif­fi­cult trip, rank and steady­ing be­hind horses for much of the run­ning and even lack­ing room be­hind the even­tual win­ner for a time in the lane. Ex­pect­ing big im­prove­ment here with a clean trip (1).


DOU­BLE WHAMMY loves this strip. SOUPER LUCKY has been away nearly a year but he's an­other who does his best work at Lau­rel. TURCO BRAVO had been post­ing steady Bey­ers prior to the lay­off. PAGE MCKEN­NEY is also en­tered in the Gen­eral Ge­orge and will be a threat in which­ever race in which he runs (4).


HIGH RIDGE ROAD posted the best Beyer of her ca­reer in her first stakes win when last seen; dan­ger­ous if she's able to run back to that ef­fort. BY THE MOON was a close 2nd to HIGH RIDGE ROAD in her lat­est; an­other short lay­off fol­lowed but she's no stranger to those. TAKREES comes off a nar­row win in the In­ter­bor­ough, and trainer Kiaran McLaugh­lin ex­cels with last-out win­ners. CLOTHES FELL OFF, from the same barn, didn't break alertly in the same race but she clearly has room to im­prove here with a clean get­away (4).

RACE 10:

PAGE MCKEN­NEY can't win two races on the card but he can win ei­ther of the two in which he's en­tered, in­clud­ing this Gen­eral Ge­orge Stakes. He didn't run his best fig­ure last time off the lay­off but the slow splits made it tough for him to put up an ex­cep­tion­ally fast fi­nal time. IM­PE­RIAL HINT was a game win­ner against lesser when last seen, and though he meets tougher to­day he's clearly in top form. STALL­WALKIN' DUDE has an ex­pe­ri­ence edge on IM­PE­RIAL HINT and oth­ers and he also has some of the best Bey­ers in the field; easy to like (3).
