Bob Pandolfo offers his picks for the $35,000 Late Pick-4 at Meadowlands Racetrack on Dec. 6, part of the U.S. Trotting Association Strategic Wagering Program.
Meadowlands Pick-4, Races 6-9, Thursday, Dec. 6, 2018
I wasn’t close in the Pick-4 Saturday night, minus $24. Meet record, 2-12, minus $187.05.
Tonight’s tickets: 50-cent play: 236/26/14/14 = $12
Race 6: (3) Fireball may be the favorite switching to the Burke barn, but his recent races in Canada make him a bit shaky. (2) Deepfave Hanover had a tough trip in last. (6) Preppy Art is my top pick at a price as he drops down and gets a better post after racing at Yonkers.
Race 7: (2) Pumped Up Kicks might be a legit favorite here, but I’m also using (6) Trys Little Prince, who ships in for a good claiming barn off a win.
Race 8: (1) Freespin N and (4) Medoland Jate are the two obvious ones here.
Race 9: (1) Ideal Romance will be a short price as he shoots for his fourth straight. I put (4) The Bruiser on top, he had a tough trip in last at Freehold.
