Friday, March 15: Cal Expo Pick 4 Analysis

by Al Cimaglia

March 15, 2019

Cal Expo has a 12-race card on tap with the feature coming in Race 4, an Open Pace with a $6,500 purse. The 0.20 Pick 4 sequence rolls in Race 8, it has $30,000 guaranteed pool and will be my focus. 

Comments and selections below are based on a fast track. 

Race 8 

1-Timetoplaythegame-Drops to a better spot and could be sitting on a big try. 
3-Major Jesse-Kennedy's choice over #5 made a rare break at start in last, will toss and fits with this crew. 
8-Urgointohearmeroar-Was on a terror but drifted wide in last and came 3rd, off 3 weeks but best to respect chalk. 

Race 9 

2-Along Came Jane-Slow pace hurt in last, has been racing well and Kennedy's choice could win at a square price. 
4-Burn My Villa-Went the last 1/2 in 56.3 in 1st start off the bench, looks like a player. 
5-Surprisingly Sweet-11-year-old was off 3 weeks and the beaten chalk was flat, looking for better tonight. 
7-Legio X Equestris-Was bet last week in 1st start since 1-5, looks primed for a big effort but has been camera shy. 

Race 10 

1-Jenn On The Rocks-Plano's choice over 2 others can make the most of the rail, as I look to beat the ML chalk #4. 
3-Miki's Magic Ride-Has been consistently in the hunt and looking for more of the same here. 
7-Custards Dungeon-Will take a swing for a square price with high % trainer in 1st start at CalX after a nice qualifier. 

Race 11 

2-Camita B And E-Can stick around from the inside and upset with a top effort, this isn't a deep field. 
3-Stylemaster-3rd start off the bench and now Plano steers. He has had success with Cole Muffler gelding in past. 
5-I'm Blue Too-8/5 ML chalk was bet and beat in last, can top this bunch but will need a complete effort.
