******KY DERBY PLAYS*******
Sometimes typing these plays out can be confusing. I hope this doesn't come off as gibberish.
My plays will look similar to this and I will play several 50 cent trifectas and a few $1 supers. I'll invest in the pick three, four and double all ending with the Derby. I will plays some exactas as well.
A sampling of what some of the Trifectas will look like:
15/8,16,18 (I will box this key, so put the 15 1st, 2nd & 3rd)....each bet is $3 for 50 cents
15/8,16,18/3,4,6,8,10,11,14,16,18,19 (again box if you like, each will cost $13.50)
15/8/all & 15/16/all & 15/18/all & 15/11/all ($9 each)
15/all/8 & 15/all/16 & 15/all/11 & 15/all/18 ($9 each)
8,16/15/all ($18 for 50 cents)
I'm investing minimally in supers with 15 keyed over and under for second with 8,16,11,18,4,6,10 in that order. Only using 6 & 10 for fourth.
Race 10 I like #10 Brilliant Speed as my "A."
I will also use 6 Doubles Partner & 7 Data Link
I will play a 10/15 double and a 10/8,11,16,18 double
Then I will play smaller 6,7/15 & 6,7/11,16,8,18 doubles.
Pick 3 starting in Race 9.
I found the ninth very tough so I'm spreading in the 50 cent pick 3.
I will have an "A" ticket with 6,7,9 and all my picks in the doubles and then a smaller "B" TICKET with all in this race keying Gemologist as a single with the three picks in the 10th.
Pick 4 starting in race 8:
I settled on four horses. The 3&7 were "A" horses and the 9&10 were "Bs".
So a pick four which costs 50 cents with all those selections would look like this 3,7,9,10/3,4,6-9/6,7,10/15 and cost $36 for 50 cents.
I will spread my A & B selections on several tickets as to cover more horses in different legs.
My last Derby winner was Monarchos more than 10 yrs ago, so it's been a long dry spell. Please tread lightly and enjoy the Super Bowl of thoroughbred racing!
