May, 28, 2011, is my son's 10th birthday, so this should be a lucky day. In the 50¢ Place Pick 6: 1, 6 with 1, 6 with 4, 7 with 6 with 2, 3, 9 with 8 for a total of $12.
For today's 50 ¢ Pick 5, there will be an all top choice ticket for $48 and a second ticket with one back-up that will cost an additional $16.
Today's 11th race is the John J. Reilly Handicap for New Jersey-breds. In the field are two of the top 10 earning Jersey-breds in history. Click on the HorseRacingNation.com icon in the right margin to go to my "Racing at the Jersey Shore" blog to find out more about the best NJ runners.
UPDATE - 7:01pm - Joey P. finished 11th and Who's the Cowboy 9th in the John J. Reilly H. The Pick 5 for 50¢, hard to believe, pays $622.35. The winners paid $4.80, $6.40, $5.80, $10.80, $3.00 and produce an IRS winner! WOW! We had 3 winners and 2 seconds. One second was a first timer in race 7 that got bet to 2.20-1, but it was the second leg. I didn't see if it got bet in the race 6 DD's. The value is definitely there!
