Day 9 is a tough card for our Pick 5 and Pick 6 plays because of race 6. In race 6, the three best horses (11, 12, 13) are AE's and they are entered at Monmouth on Sunday in race 8. So, it is unlikely that they will go on Saturday, but if any of them do, they tower over the rest of the field.
Thus, AndyScoggin says only a 50¢ Place Pick 6 play today and it will be a bit complicated because of race 6. Let's go with: 3,5,7 with 1,4,7 with (in order of preference, playing only the first two that get in race 6) 11,12,13,4,2 with 5 with 1 with 4,7,10. Again, let's hope to catch an exacta in races 4, 5, 6, or 9 to give us multiple winning tickets. Cost will be $27.
7:28pm-update-It was a tough card today and we did get knocked out in race 6. Better luck tomorrow!
