Friday and Saturday Prairie Meadows Pick 4 Analysis

Friday Pick 4

Race 7: 2,3,4,8

Race 8: 4,5,6

Race 9: 3

Race 10: 1,5,6,8,9,10,11,12

Total Cost: $48

Analysis: The Saylorville is going to be a good one to watch, as the field is pretty competitive across the board.  I’ve went four deep here, but this is the race I’m most nervous about.  In the Iowa Distaff, I’d be shocked if one of my three picks didn’t win.  Rothko stands out in the Iowa Sprint, so I’ve got him singled.  He’s not a total slam dunk, but a worthy single none to less.  In the last leg I went eight deep, and I think this is the race we could get a big price on.

Saturday Pick 4

Race 7: 1,2,3,5

Race 8: 1

Race 9: 3,5,6

Race 10: 1,2,5,6,7,8,9

Total Cost: $42

Analysis: This one is as straight forward as they come.  The Iowa Oaks is a balanced field, but lacks a superstar.  I went four deep in this race as it’s easily the toughest of the three stakes races.  The Iowa Derby should be a slam dunk for Hansen so I’ve singled him.  The Cornhusker drew a solid field of six, but I think you can narrow it down to Successful Dan, Awesome Gem, and Headache.  Leaving off Shadowbdancing might be risky, but he certainly looks out-classed against this bunch.  The tenth is a total guess.  I used seven horses, but I wouldn’t blame you if you hit the all button on that one.
