How to play the Pick 4

Daily Racing Form National Digital Edition - - All-Turf Pick 4 - by Michael Ham­mer­sly


RUSH­ING FALL is thor­oughly top-class. She looked su­per whip­ping some of these in the Grade 2 Lake Placid at Saratoga last time out Aug. 18. She’s been fresh­ened and is just a neck shy of be­ing per­fect in six starts. NYALETI was a good sixth in the Grade 1 Bev­erly D at Ar­ling­ton Aug. 11 when fac­ing el­ders, beaten by just 2 3/4 lengths by the leader of the Amer­i­can older distaff turf divi­sion, Sis­ter­char­lie. She then faced some top el­der males in a Group 2 in Eng­land and again wasn’t beaten by much. (2)

WO 9

THUN­DER­ING BLUE knocked heads with some of Europe’s best and comes here off a smart Group 3. SPRING QUAL­ITY had a su­per year go­ing be­fore toss­ing in a dud in the Grade 1 Joe Hirsch Turf Clas­sic at Bel­mont as he ap­par­ently didn’t like the soft go­ing. He’s cer­tainly ca­pa­ble of bet­ter. KHAN looked like a new horse when he jumped up with a smash­ing 20-1 win in a Ger­man Group 1 Sept. 23. A re­peat of that makes him scary. (3)

KEE 10

NOW POWER was a game sec­ond as the even-money fa­vorite last time out at El­lis Park beaten just a nose, a run which looks even bet­ter when you note that gal she beat for sec­ond came right back to win. DY­NATAIL has been knock­ing on the door. She comes out of a tough op­tional claimer at Saratoga and has the speed to be in a good spot from the start. SMART EMMA was aw­fully game to win her last at El­lis Park Aug. 4 as she had the lead, lost it, but re-ral­lied to win. (3)

WO 10

STAR­SHIP JU­BILEE looked su­per blast­ing some tough foes in the Grade 2 Cana­dian here Sept. 15. She thinks she owns this course and may be in the best form of her life. POL­LARA is a scary French im­port who showed plenty of tal­ent over­seas and still has room to de­velop, hav­ing run just three times. SANTA MON­ICA won the Grade 2 Dance Smartly on this course at this trip June 30. (3)
