Ticket: 3,4,7/3,4,7,9/ALL– Cost: $36.00 ($.50 cent base)
Yesterday’s Recap – Well we had a zero kind of day yesterday missing every leg of the Pick 5 which carried over until today. We will take another swing with the trifecta wager at Hoosier. The pick 5 of 6/2/8/7/3 returned $43.20.
Race 10: #3 ANNIE’S SIDEKCIK gets the services of Oosting again this week after a couple of game efforts with him aboard. She draws well this week and while she is not the speediest horse in the world, she is a big closer who has a big chance to show up here.
#7 LICKCREEK SPEEDWAY closed very strongly last out while dropping in class and looked ultra-sharp. Tonight she gets a tough draw and if she could get into the race early on I look for her to be on the ticket with a chance to win.
#4 SHOE SHOPPER could be the value play on the trifecta ticket this week with the driver change to Trace Tetrick. She has had some trouble with the post draw as of late, but with the improved post and speed that she has, I look for a big effort tonight.
#9 BIG BAD MAXINE is another speedy mare who could present value on the trifecta ticket tonight. She has put in two very good efforts as of late at Hawthorne and will try Hoosier Park for the first time. Look for her late.
