Love is in the air. It is all about the ladies, and today is their day. I love a few plays, and W/P has helped me maximize the value end.

Race #3 – BC Marathon…. This is the only race that I am going to play, where a gal will not rule the day. A top tier runner is going to smash this field. #6 Mastery (9-5) should enjoy the long distance. I don’t think you will get 9-5, and this is why I needed help finding prices to finish out my exactas and trifectas. But, I do love Mastery

Race #4 – Pure Clan….. I cannot believe this top tier runner is 5-1….Garrett Gomez is in the saddle, and I love him on big days. She is 14/15 ITM, and has the “monster workout” banner, and  “has improved” icon. This is a great sign, and I have to love the price. Bob Holthus is the trainer, and the rail can be a good place going 1 1/4 on the weeds. I had to seek the lower tiers to find that price level that makes my wager an IRS signer. I like my chances, and with a little racing luck good things may happen.

The card overall is strong. These are just a couple of runners I like. There are a bevy of races where there are some double tough gals. I think we may see some new stars for the future on this day. So, be sure and look beyond the top tier. There can be great value there, but sometimes you have to dig a little deeper to find the gold. There is plenty of easy chalk, and you can even turn the lower price plays into triple digit payoffs very easily.

Best of luck today!
