In race #7 on Tuesday you have a shot at making a Pick-4 a little smaller into a Pick-3. We’ll examine the first leg, and WinningPonies.com can do the rest of the work from there.

They are traveling a 1 1/16th on the turf, and the race offers the full measure of exotics. One to zero in on is: Geshudeit.

This is a top tier runner at a square price of 3-1. If you see $8 to win on this runner, bet early and often.

This 4-year-old son of Gone West has the 45 days off icon and is dropping down in class. A 12.5 turf rating is the selling point for me. This is very solid, and the time off gives a little needed rest. Daniel Centeno is in the irons winning at 29% for trainer Dennis Manning, who is winning at 25%. Add all of this up, and you may have a kick off for the Pick-4.

He makes the transition from the poly to the weeds, and if you look at the races run on the green you will not be disappointed.

I feel you can throw out the muddy first time, and the synthetic debut. Erase those races, and this old boy starts looking better and better. I would use some of the other tier one horses with your middle leg of of the trifecta, and possibly stretch out in legs 2-3-4 of the gimmick. I sure like the direction of this runner, and don’t be afraid to let WinningPonies.com point you toward a big payoff.
