The weekend is over, and there’s nothing like kicking off the Monday blues with cashing in on a few hot ones. has been holding very well, and we hope that you are along for the ride. So, before you head off to work, how about downloading the Hawthorne card and having your first score of the week.

In Race #4, there is a sweet filly #2 / That’s a Fact. She is 3-1, and I think this could translate to value on the win end, and a triple digit payoff on the exotic side.

This gal is conditioned by Roger Brueggamann who is white hot winning at 28%. Add in the capable hands of Inez Carlsson batting 22% a winner, and you have a combo who can finish the job.

She has 6 starts with 2 wins, and three place finishes. The condition she is racing in currently is a logical place to be. This is a speedy daughter of Winning Bid. She is labeled with the important  “Should Improve” icon, and was a beaten favorite two back in this condition. I like playing beaten favorites. You usually get better value, and the public has dismissed you as one who cannot get the job done.

WinningPonies has a 54+ rating for this horse, and good things should be seen today. The last three race rating is a 55, and she is stretching out from 5 1/2 – 6 panels.

The Pick-4 begins in race #2, and with W/P on your side, you could make this wager a Pick-3 paying a Pick-4 price.

So go ahead, get in the game. You can’t win unless you get in…. This gal looks the part, and her being our top selection, is good enough for me. I plan on spreading out as follows: Race #2 – (3) top tier runners / Race #3 – (3) top tier runners  / Race #4 – a single (That’s a Fact) / Race #5 – (2) top tier runners plus the first second tier runner. The total cost of a $1 ticket is $27. The ticket will look like 3x3x1x3 = $27. It is a good investment, and could yield a payoff 8-10 times your investment.

Have a good week!
