Al Cimaglia: Sept. 8-Scioto Downs Pick 4 Analysis

by Al Cimaglia

September 8, 2018

The Ohio Super Night is on tap at Scioto Downs with over $2.5 million in purses.  Races 2-8 will feature purses of $275,000 and will be part of a 0.20 Pick 8 which has a $10,000 guaranteed pool. The 0.50 Pick 4 sequence begins in Race 6, it will have a $7,500 guaranteed pool and will be my focus. 


Comments and selections below are based on a fast track. 


Race 6

2-Smiley Dragon-Likes the track and might be overlooked at the windows in a competitive race. 

3-Kay Again-Broke in last but will give benefit of the doubt, likes to win and in a spot to score again.

4-McPansy-Has had only 1 race since 7/14, but best to respect, if right can handle this crew.  

7-Prsntpretynperfect-Post makes it tougher for winner of last 2 but Wrenn knows how to put her in play.


Race 7

2-Spunky Bottom Girl-In fine form and finally gets an inside post at this track, should be a square price. 

3-Looking For Zelda-Winner of 4 of 8, can take a picture with best effort in a tough race.

6-Sesame-D. Miller takes a seat, fits with these and could be sitting on a big try. 

7-Non Smoker-2nd time Lasix and may find the right trip to surprise at a nice price.


Race 8

5-Two O B Wonkenobi-Looks to be a cut above this field. Winner of last 3 will be tough it brings best game.

6-Pass The Vape-Very nice 3-yr-old has earned about $20k> #5, using at 6-1 but will need another gear. 


Race 9

3-Seeing Eye Single-Deserves respect and from this post should be in the hunt.

4-Bounding Dragon-Rested for about 6 weeks, before then razor sharp and should be a major player. 

5-Lather Up-Odds on favorite is probably the fastest colt, won here in 1:49.4, but must mind manners. 


0.50 Pick 4


Total Bet=$48
