TOP PICKS & SUGGESTED WAGERS I handicap the races and list Four Horses per race (plus another in case scratches) in order of preference starting with the Top Pick so multi-race and inter-race wagers can be formed. Currently, I am focused on BELMONT PARK & CHURCHILL DOWNS  providing my Pick5, Pick4 and Pick3 wagering strategies. My selections for turf races are 2nd to none. I find value and Double Digit Top Pick Turf Winner as my specialty.. Spot Plays may also be included in the daily selections, weekends more probable. Tracks for potential Spot Plays include WOODBINE, SANTA ANITA PARK, LAUREL PARK, GULFSTREAM PARK, and DELAWARE PARK. I'll focus around turf races looking to cash nice tickets.
