Horse Racing Betting Tips by Richard Saber |

Yesterday’s results

At Hollywood, we never came close with our pick six and we have a huge carryover today and the track officials are jumping with joy. The card is so difficult, however, I can’t even come up with a ticket but I will give it the All American try even though the Fourth was yesterday. The carryover today is a whooping $1,197,009, and that is not a typo. At Pleasanton, we had little success, but we did come close in our late pick four hitting three out of the four races which paid us a whopping zippo.

HOLLYWOOD PARK

Race 6

With 11 races today this will be the first leg of the pick six, which will climb over $5 million, so we must take a little stab. We will use three horses that have run and hope that none of the first time starters is for real. We have No. 4, Crash Landing, who is on our Horses to Watch (HTW) list; if he breaks well today he could get home on top. No. 8, One Chin Again, has been knocking on the door and gets turned back in distance today, so look for him to be flying late. No. 10, Ribald, exits the same race as Crash Landing and gets the best of the draw. 4-8-10

Key Play

$5 exacta box 4-8-10 for $30

$2 tri box 4-8-10 for $12

Race 7

This one looks like a cold two-horse race with No. 1, Lady of Venice, who ships in from Belmont for trainer McLaughlin and No. 2, Ventura, who just defeated Venice last time out in a GR1 race, we will use the two V’s and hope it means victory. 1-2

Race 8

There are five here that look like they can take the race but we will use three in the pick six, but play a five horse 10¢ super just in case. The five on our list is 1-3-5-10-11, and we will use 1-3-5 in the pick six. 1-3-5-10-11

Key Play

10¢ super box 1-3-5-10-11 for $12

Race 9

No. 1, Pure Clan, has five wins, one second and two thirds from eight lifetime starts vs. top stakes horses; he comes here via Churchill Downs with jockey Leparoux. No. 9, Caribbean Sunset, looks like nothing but class, he ships in from Europe and comes with his jockey, P. Smullen. 1-9

Race 10

We will single No. 5, Street Boss, who has a big closing kick that will set up well as the four inside horses will be out winging. NO.5

Race 11

No. 7, Wicked Delight, just missed last time out and appears set to graduate. No. 9 could pose the main danger as she tries the grass for the first time after two nice efforts on the cushion track; if she can adjust she will be right there. 7-9

Key Play

$2 pick six for $144

PLEASANTON

Race 3

No. 1, Shadow Justice, will get a great stalking trip, he is the one to beat. No. 1

Race 4

This one looks like a two horse race between No. 2, Galica, and past HTW No. 6, Little Bug.

Key Play

$20 Q 2-6 for $20

Race 5

No. 3, Sararah Jr., takes a huge dip in class, if all right she wins. No. 4, Perfect Rhyme, ships in from Hollywood from dad Sherman to son Steve and that has been a great bet. 3-4

Key Play

$4 double for $16

4th 2-6

5th 3-4

Race 6

I would continue to roll the doubles and play some pick threes. 5-8

Race 7: 2-4-5

Race 8

No. 4, Crafty Power, is off our HTW list and appears to have a big say in this very difficult race; we will play him to win and place and keep rolling the doubles and picks. No. 4

Key Play

$20 win and place No. 4 for $40

Race 9

Just love the No. 6, Big Bien, in here as he has already won here on opening day breaking his maiden while under raps and looks like a great bet to repeat. No. 6

Key Play

$40 win No. 6 for $40

Race 10: 1-2

Race 11

No. 1

Race 12

No. 8
