Running Aces has a 9-race card ready to begin the week. The 0.50 Late Pick 4 starts in Race 6. The sequence has a $5,000 guaranteed pool, and it will be my focus.

Comments and selections below are based on a fast track.

Race 6

1-Vickie's Vacation (6-1)-Plano should race near the top of the stack and be in striking range at the head of the stretch. Should be a player versus this crew and has hit the board in 10 of 13 here with 4 pictures.
4-Scroll On By (3-1)-Winner of 2 in a row has made it look easy. Could keep the winning streak going if Kerwood gets the top without any issues and controls the fractions.
7-Princeofthefield (8-1)-Will look for a price and this 3-year-old hasn't missed the board in 3 races at Aces. Competitive sort could surprise with a sharp steer.

Race 7

1-Momma Knows Best (3-1)-Northfield invader drops in her 2nd local start and should fit nicely with this crew. This mare made over $34k in 2021 in her 3-year-old season.
3-Al-Mar Spicey Talk (5-1)-Drops back to the level of the last win on 5-29. Dean Magee should be able to find some cover and be in the hunt at the wire.

Race 8

3-Just A Rocket Man (5-1)-Got the lead from post 9 in last and outraced his odds to finish 3rd at 85-1. This will be the 3rd start at Aces and should offer a fair price for team Lancaster.
5-Impressive Art (10-1)-This price shot had no chance last week from the 8-hole when dropped to this level. Needs the right trip but there isn't a standout in this field.
7-Frewil Dakota Sven (3-1)-Program chalk drops to a soft spot and should be considered. But this 7-year-old usually finds a way to lose and does burn money.

Race 9

4-Just B Talking (5-1)-Dropped in for $6k in last, drew post 8 and was hung the mile. This starting spot could be the winning difference and should offer a square price.
5-Almost Cut My Hair (10-1)-Will go with Svendsen and Johnson in this spot and leave out the 2 program chalks (3-7). Should be forwardly placed and may squeeze by down the lane at a juicy price.

0.50 Late Pick 4

Total Bet=$18
