Tonight, Northfield Park has an Early and Late Pick 4 sequences with $10,000 guaranteed pools. The $1 Late Pick 4 begins in Race 9 and will be my focus.
The driver with the hottest hands at Nfld on Saturday was Aaron Merriman who had five wins. The leading conditioner was
Jessica Roegner with two trips to the winner's circle.
Comments and selections below are based on a fast track.
3-Ideal Dragon (5/2)-Gets post relief and has been competitive when staring from the inside.
4-Best Choice (9/2)-Has had issues but now comes back in one week and last was better. Makes 2nd start for new barn and maybe Lasix is finally helping.
7-Flying Shekel (2-1)-Makes 4th start for new barn and now Wrenn takes a seat, could be sitting on a big try.
1-Crazy K (7-1)-8-time winner in '18 is winless in 8 starts but gets needed post relief. Could be put in play from this post and pop at a square price.
4-Toneka (3-1)-Makes 5th start of the year and is looking for first win. But has been working hard and will respect chances.
7-Janet Hanover (9/2)-Has been bet down to 1/5 in last two starts, won and then broke. Fits here and looks like a major player in 3rd start for new barn.
1-Twin B Stingray (5/2)-Drops in 3rd start off the bench and this looks like a spot to get an overdue win.
9-McKinley (2-1)-Showed improvement when dropped to this level in last. Post is a challenge but twice beaten favorite has gate speed to be put in play.
3-The Big Bay Wolf (7/5)-Merriman's choice is very consistent at this class if minds manners. Will take a swing the journey is smooth.
