Assiniboia Downs Pick 4 for Tuesday, June 28
Below we provide a Pick 4 ticket to play at the Winnipeg track and offer additional analysis on Races 4 through 7.
Race 4: 5 1/2 furlongs, for maiden three-year-olds and up
#3 Guaranteeddelivery (9-5) is a worthy single in the opening leg of Tuesday's Pick 4. The four-year-old gelding flashed a 57 Brisnet Speed rating, tied for the highest last-race speed figure of the field, when running against tougher company in a maiden special weight at this track on June 14. Trained by Carl Anderson, a 25% winner (3-for-12) this meet, Guaranteeddelivery will drop in class on Tuesday and ride under hot jockey Jorge Carreno (29% winner at Assiniboia), who finished second aboard the bay two back when stretching out to 1 1/8 miles.
We'll play Guaranteeddelivery but also take a chance on #5 Call Me Captain (3-1), who placed second last out in a five-furlong sprint at this track while beating Lenny's Zeal by a head. He also bested rival #4 Bennybob by a length and #1 We Need V L Ts Plz and #2 Amma's Star by more.
Race 5: 6 furlongs, for maiden fillies and mares
Miami Souvenirs opened as the even-money favorite after finishing second by five lengths to Finger Tip in a maiden special weight on June 15 at Assiniboia Downs, but scratched earlier in the day.
That leaves #6 Sins N Wins (3-1) as the logical favorite for conditioner Wendy Anderson, a 25% winner with horses running their third race off a layoff. Sins N Wins came home second by 2 1/2 lengths at last asking and beat rival #2 Victoriaville by 5 1/2 lengths, as well as #1 Zibo, #3 Witt's Memories, and #5 Suade by significantly more.
Race 6: 6 furlongs, for three-year-olds and up
#6 Rightofvengence (8-5) finished third by more than 10 lengths to Crowned Royal in a claiming race at this track on June 13. The four-year-old gelding has failed as the favorite in his last two starts for trainer Devon Gittens (17 3-3-3 this meet) but will make a rider switch to hot jockey Renaldo Cumberbatch, who has gone 8-for-38 this meet and 2-for-8 when paired up with Gittens the last two months.
The Vengeful Wildcat gelding could improve in his second start off a layoff, but #2 Creative Feature (9-5) could spoil his day. The Creative Cause three-year-old drops in class for conditioner Jared Brown (19% winner this meet) and will stay with hot jockey Carreno, a 26% winner when paired with Brown the last two months. Two back, the gray gelding flashed a 75 Brisnet figure in a five-furlong allowance on May 31 when facing tougher opponents.
Race 7: 6 furlongs, for fillies and mares three years old and up
The final leg of the Pick 4 should be the most competitive. #6 Camano Comet (5-2) is a slight favorite after placing fourth in a $7,500 claimer on June 7 and will drop in class today for Brown, a 19% winner with horses making their second start off a layoff. His 73 Speed rating is the second highest last race speed figure behind #2 Know What I Mina (3-1), who clocked a 75 Brisnet rating when winning a $3,500 claimer by three-quarters of a length.
The six-year-old mare will look to win her third straight under Prayven Badrie, a 40% winner when paired up with Michael Nault the last two months. Nault is also a 45% winner with horses who won their last start.
#8 Bye Y’all (4-1) is also coming off a win for Shelley Brown in a 5 1/2-furlong claiming race on June 15. The five-year-old mare posted a 73 Speed figure and won by 1 1/4 lengths under Cumberbatch, a 40% winner teaming up with Brown in five races over the last two months.
We'll throw in #1 Happy Issue (8-1) as a longer shot who showed good speed recently in a five-furlong sprint at this track on May 31. The eight-year-old makes a drop in class for Jerry Gourneau, a 17% winner at the claiming level and a 16% winner in sprint distances.
$2 Pick 4: 3,5 with 6 with 2,6 with 1,2,6,8 ($32)
