Al Cimaglia: Running Aces Late Pick 4 Analysis | Sunday, June 26, 2022

Tonight, Running Aces has 9 races scheduled. The feature comes in Race 7, the Steve Wiseman Memorial Trot with a $35,000 purse. 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

2-CR Promise To You (3-1)-Has been in sharp form and should be in striking range turning for the wire. Detgen also has the option of leaving and landing on the point. Looks like a main player either way.
6-Vickie's Vacation (6-1)-Will swing for a solid price and look for a different trip this time. Plano has the gate speed to work with to put this filly in play and probably won't get caught siting on the rail into a 30.3 quarter .

Race 7

2-All American N (7/2)-Wired the field in last and could try the same plan. The program chalk #1 may have a say in landing on the point but will stick with Plano working the right trip.
6-Rush To The Bank (10-1)-Willing to toss last as now Roland will be steering and chances for a flat mile improve. Takes on older but at this price is worth using on top and underneath in gimmicks.

Race 8

3-Marced In Faith (3-1)-Took charge in last and drew off to win 156.2, now comes back at the same class. Should be leaving and with this post draw may not look back again.
4-Beachy Boy Hill (4-1)-This is only the 6th lifetime start for this 3-year-old and took the pocket ride behind the one above to finish 2nd last week. Might be overlooked this time and could step-up and show improvement off the last effort.
7-By By Ileen (5-1)-Starts slowly, usually takes the long way around but the pace could be lively here and should offer a nice price. Dean Magee needs to stay in striking range and pick off foes down the lane.

Race 9

4-Tink And Tiger (8-1)-Will use this veteran and leave the morning line chalk #8 off the ticket. Could get sucked around from this post. Magee has one move to use, and he needs to push the button at the right time.
5-Teror Of The Nite (9/2)-This 11-year-old should like the company and gets a positive driver change in Plano. Needs a trip and has a pilot who can work a smooth journey.
6-A And C Artist (3-1)-Claimed for $4k by the Detgen barn and comes right back to face similar from the same post. Chances for success go up if lands near the top of the stack early on.

0.50 Late Pick 4
