Al Cimaglia: Hoosier Park Late Pick 4 Analysis | Friday, November 19

November 19, 2021

Hoosier Park has a 13-race card on tap to start the weekend. The 0.50 Late Pick 4 begins in Race 10, and the sequence will be my focus.

Comments and selections below are based on a fast track.

Race 10

1-Ima Diamond Babe (9/5)-Has faced some tough Indiana bred 3-year-olds and should relish the company. Beat this kind on 10-27 as an odds-on choice. Can be forwardly placed from the start and won't offer any value but should be tough to beat.
7-Sister Jean (6-1)-Sister came off a sick scratch and started from the 2nd tier versus this kind and cashed a 2nd place check. Was defeated by #4 who was repeat winner. If the morning line choice doesn't bring her fastball this gal should be in the hunt at a solid price. Came the back half in 57.1 and this race could set-up for a closer.

Race 11

2-Stright Cool Up (15-1)-Looks like a live longshot with the right steer. Putnam should provide an efficient trip with this post draw. Could get sucked around and use a nice brush down the lane to surprise.
5-Ana Afreet N (3-1)-Raced gamely to the wire but was nipped by an odds-on chalk, and the trip could have been better. Was caught 1st over on the backside into a .28 third quarter and will rely on Widger working a smoother journey tonight.
6-Little Rocket Man (3/5)-Raced big again to capture its 3rd straight on 11-5. Did fade near the wire and De Long was after him down the stretch. Offers a very short price and deserves respect but will look to others to be better down the lane this time.

Race 12

3-Bold And Brassy (4-1)-Went off at 17-1, took advantage of a sizzling 1st half and went by foes in the late going. The trip could be different here but Leonard should have this 7-year-old in striking range. The program chalk drops into a soft spot but has been camera shy, so best to not overlook.
5-Kneedeep N Custard (2-1)-Should be a main player here but has trouble producing a complete effort. Hasn't sealed the deal since 7-30 versus Open II company. Should wake up tonight but can't completely trust.

Race 13

1-Gazing Start (2-1)-The field has tallied a total of 16 wins this year and this 5-year-old has taken 2 of the pictures. Has been facing better and Tetrick takes the lines, This smells like a drop and pop situation.
6-America's Fleet (5/2)-Only 1-31 in 2021 and this will be the 1st time for Widger to take a seat. This is another short price and the change in pilots could be the difference.
