It's a crazy idea, really. Boy Genius and I thought maybe we could put together a ticket for today's $1 million guarantee Pick 6 at Hollywood Park. That means picking the winners for the last 6 races on today's card. Of course, on yesterday's Arlington Park card, we had trouble picking 2 winners, but I digress.
Apparently, we've been able to fool 11 other people into jumping on board with a $30 investment. And so the Lucky 13 are all rooting for a nice six figure payday. Here are the picks:
3-Fighting City Hall
BG and I feel pretty good about this race. There was one other horse we considered, but we've got the class of this field locked in.
We really expet the 2 or 11 to win this, although BG is big on the 3 as well. The very last horse we put on our ticket was County.
In order to have a managable price, you have to find a race where you have a good feeling about just one horse. For BG and I, it was Attima in the featured race of the day.
BG and I feel real good that these are the only four horses with a chance to win this race. We'll be very happy if we're alive going into the 9th race.
1-Charming N Lovable
2-Silly Little Mama
The 3 was another late add to the ticket after one of our choices was scratched. We have a good feeling that Silly Little Mama is the horse here. We'll be on cloud nine if we're still alive going into the 10th race.
The final race of the Pick 6 is a 12-horse Maiden Special Weight. That means 12 horse who have never won. It's the kind of race designed to bust Pick 6 tickets. And despite that, we're going just two deep here. If we had $1000 to spend, we might go 6 or 8 deep on this race. Instead, we're hoping the chalk, Marquis Form, runs away with it. And, really, if we're still alive at this point, BG and I will be like giddy little schoolgirls.
