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 SARATOGA RACE COURSE  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 DEL MAR, COLONIAL DOWNS, LAUREL PARK, INDIANA GRAND, and CANTERBURY DOWNS. I'll focus around turf races looking to cash nice tickets.

OK, For Friday I’ve completely handicapped all 10 races from Saratoga with Pick5, Pikc4 and Pick3 wagers suggested – all picks for Dirt as we are off the turf today. Nice races regardless as I always enjoy wagering in the mud if we start that way and are prepared to do so. Some nice pedigree plays today as well for the wet dirt so I’ll be playing all day long. Some interesting horses I’ll be leaning on plus a dynamic Curlin Stakes to look forward too. If the sun stays out it could be another really nice afternoon. Visit Pick4win.com…

OK, Another nice week of action awaits as I’ve completely handicapped races 2-10 with Pick5, Pick4 and Pick3 wagers suggested. Some nice winners last week, more 2nd again it seemed but my selections are firing and we’ll tip the results in our favor soon and cash that big ticket. Looks like a nice afternoon weather-wise so anticipating all the turf races to go. After The Mean Queen gallops in the jumpers we get started on the flats. Some new angles start coming into play this week, new horses rotating into the Saratoga stalls after running through the early condition book.…

OK, Fantastic day to play is evolving at Saratoga Race Course this afternoon as I’ve completely handicapped all 11 races with Pick5, Pick4 and Pick3 wagers suggested. 4 Top Pick Winners Friday lead by Judge N Jury who absolutely throttled his field with a move around the far turn and he hit another gear after switching leads and blew these out by 8 lengths or so in a very impressive return to the races for Danny Gargan. The card today really sets up for my style. We should have lots of sequences today where I like a longer shot horse…
