Fair Grounds Pick 6 Wednesday, March 8: $6,223 carryover

March 7th, 2023

With last weekend’s cash being carried over into Wednesday’s pool, the time is right to take a swing at Fair Grounds' $1 Pick 6 with a low 15% takeout.

It’s been an elusive pool, carrying over as often as it is hit. This is not necessarily because a ton of illogical horses are winning at big prices; more so,there’s a bomb in one leg that blows up all the tickets. I’ve got mine in Race 5 — #9 Trinity Hope (8-1), which I’ll be singling.

Race 3: Dirt, 1 mile 70 yards, Clm 7500(7.5-5)B, 4-year-old and up fillies

#8 Total Malice (3-1) is an easy single to start the sequence. She runs well at Fair Grounds and at the distance, the track has been speed favoring, and she looks to be live on the lead with the colony’s meet-leading jock.

Race 4: Dirt, 6 furlongs, Clm 12500B, 4-year-old and up statebreds

#1 Cigar Van (8-1) has speed, the rail, and the bug — will be an all-out send. #7 Northernreflection (3-1) drops to his lowest level for a trainer who could make a title run if he’s aggressive enough. This is aggressive. #8 War Trolley (9-2) has better gate speed than the last two running lines show, encountering one kind of trouble or another in those. Patricia West keeps climbing in class with this runner, which tells me her confidence is high.

Race 5: Dirt, 1 mile, Clm 20000(20-15)N3L, 3-year-old statebred fillies

#9 Trinity Hope (8-1) is a key reason why I want to play this sequence. The barn likes her, but they overshot by running in an allowance last time, where she was compromised at the start, so her form is dirty and the value will be there. Single.

Race 6: ​​Dirt, 1 1/16 miles, Md Sp Wt 50k, 3-year-old and up fillies

#1 Magic Palace (5-1) is making her second start as a four-year-old and has more upside than the shorter-priced runner to her outside who finished ahead of her in their last race. Ditto for #4 Transparency (9-2). #5 Kiki Krazy (4-1) showed nerves, suffered a bad trip, and raced like she needed blinkers in her debut. Blinkers added. #6 Quality (3-1) is a half to National Treasure and Treasury making her four-year-old debut.

Race 7: Turf, about 5 1/2 furlongs, Md Sp Wt 50k, 3-year-old fillies

#4 Islandinthestream (7-2) has been showing talent in her morning drills. #7 Audaciousness (9-2) is going from route to sprint and has the experience edge over the field. Corey Lanerie does well closing with runners who are cutting back in distance.

Race 8: Dirt, 5 1/2 furlongs, Clm 25000(25-20)B, 4-year-old and up statebred fillies

#1 Country Lady (9-2) has speed, Brianne Culp, and the rail. Dangerous. #6 Shesabeautydancer (4-1) makes her second start with blinkers on and should be live to the lead with Florent Geroux aboard. #7 Deal Me a Penny (6-1) just paired her previous top Thoro-Graph figure, and if she steps forward from that, she’ll be much the best. #8 Cced for Steph (8-1) showed talent early on, faced tough foes, and now her morning drills for her new trainer suggest she is back in form. #10 Cajun Ninja (6-1) got pinched out of the gate last out and now drops in class to face much softer competition than in her first three races.
