There are four of us who have been putting ten bucks a week in a pot for some bets in the BC.  We decided to do pick 3s, in races 3,4,5...4.5.6....5,6,7...6,7,8... Then a pick 4 in races 7,8,9,10.  The remainder of the money will be a seven horse tri box in the Classic.  What do you think?  Samrt diversifying or ...not smart.  (we have $900)  I wanted to do a pick 6 but the guys (three men, one woman, me) out voted me on that.   Thanks for any comments in advance!

With the $2 combinations, it's tough to get far in the p6 unless you have at least 2 (maybe 3) singles...so IMO it's good call to stay out, unless you play in through Pinnacle (where you can play $1 combinations).

I would say that you may be spreading too thin?  Personally, I would play the two pick fours and "maybe" one pick three.  With $400 devoted to a pick four, you can go pretty deep.  The only pick three I would go after (and this is what I'm doing) is 5-6-7, in hopes I can get deep, and beat two of the favs: First Samurai, LITF, and Leroy...I'm sure there'll be overlays with them out...

Any way you play, good luck!

Best,
EW

Shirocco will love the soft turf nice pick.
 
I like Megahertz and Karens Caper F&M Turf

Artie Schiller in the Mile

In the BC Turf tough race im leaning towards Fourty Niners Son
The Euro's  Azamour, Ace and Bago are going to be very tough
in this race.

Going to try to beat Lost in the Fog playing Gygistar
horse for the course.

Good Luck it should be a fun day

Played a $420 ticket in the pick four, going 3x4x7x5.  The 1st, 2nd, 5th, and 3rd choices win (all logical given the number I played in each race)...payout = $6,581.10  Grin  That would be why I suggested playing deep in the pick fours!

Let's hope to get lucky again -- my late pick four: 2-3-9-11/1-2-3-7-10-12/2-3-4-5-6-7-9-10/3-4-9-11-13.

After catching a nice one I decided to see if I could go for broke...$960 ticket though.

Note on the pick three wager -- got lucky, and both LITF and Leroi went down...now, even with a 3rd and 2nd choice anchoring the pick three, the lowest will pay $758, with some reaching up to $20k...I'm alive to the 1-2-3-7-10-12 -- the same horses I played in the pick four.  Hoping the 1, 10, or 12 gets home!

Got swept by a 30/1 shot, which will finish out my day.

$1,500 out, $6,581 in.  I'll take it!  Grin

Because I can't leave well enough alone, going to play 2-3-4-5-6-7-9-10/3-4-9-11-13-14 in the double ($48/unit) for $5.  Let's hope to catch some prices.

Edward it sounds like a good day. Good job.

As for Lost in the Fog, take solace that he finished far better than any horse posted by the peanut gallery. Smiley
