Note: well, the long layoff didn't make much of a difference in my picks or the racing at the Meadowlands, as the track raced for the first time in over three months and all of the horses were coming off layoffs, but the races were true to form and class. 

I had 6 winners on top that paid $29.40, $10.80, $8.00, $5.60, $3.20, and $2.40. In three races my top two picks completed exactas of $66.20, $46.00, and $27.60. My Best Bet finished 2nd, but was beaten by my 2nd ranked pick and the exacta paid a healthy $46.00. Unfortunately, I found out yesterday something I wasn't aware of, because of the nationwide lockdown, the USTA furloughed many workers and freelancers, so even though the tracks are opening, the furlough doesn't end until July 4. I will not be doing any more selections for the Meadowlands until then. 

 

Friday, June 5 - Meadowlands picks 

 


Pandy’s Meadowlands Selections for Friday, June 5, 2020

Note: My odds-line for my top four contenders is based on what I think each horse’s chances are to win the race. For instance, if I make a horse 4-1, I think the horse’s chances of winning are about 20%, so if the same exact race was run ten times, he’d win it twice. If I make all of the horses about the same odds, that’s an indication that I think the race is wide open, or, I’m not sure which horse or horses really has a significant edge.

Meadowlands Race Picks


by Bob Pandolfo

RACE 1
1 MANCHEGO 3-5
6 SOUTHWIND CHROME 5-1
4 LINDY THE GREAT 6-1
3 CRYSTAL FASHION 7-1

We’re back in action at the Big M! MANCHEGO had a strong season as a 4yo and finished up the year with a game placing behind the classy and fast Six Pack and that was actually one of the best efforts of her outstanding career. Even though this is a solid field, she should be heavily bet.

RACE 2
3 SOLAR 2-1
4 FASHION CHARMER 5-2
1 GENEROUS POUR 4-1
8 MISS MCKEE 10-1

SOLAR qualified three times for a trainer who does well off the bench…FASHION CHARMER showed some ability last year and returns for a sharp barn.

RACE 3
8 JK AMERICAN BEAUTY 4-5
7 TANGO DANCER N 4-1
2 I’M VERY SPECIAL 5-1
10 IDEATION HANOVER 12-1

JK AMERICAN BEAUTY finished up the year sharp, qualified very well.

RACE 4
3 CAVIART EVA 8-5
5 ABS HANOVER 8-5
4 MOLTO BENE 6-1
1 CUPID HANOVER 6-1

CAVIART EVA returns for a sharp trotting barn and showed some ability last year…ABS HANOVER is undefeated after five career starts, didn’t face much but won his races by wide margins; tries two turns for the first time, adds lasix.

RACE 6
8 ROYALTYWESTHO 4-1
9 ANGEL’S PRIDE 5-2
7 ELENIARK A 4-1
5 APPLE HANOVER 5-1

ROYALTYWESTHO only won one race last year but she was only in the Burke barn for six of those and she did show improvement; qualified nicely…ANGEL’S PRIDE won a race here at a 3yo and she has some class…ELENIARK A comes off a sharp qualifier…APPLE HANOVER also qualified sharply.

RACE 8
4 MAX 5-1**
8 EUROBOND 2-1
6 WINNING SHADOW 4-1
5 OBRIGADO 4-1

MAX returns for Burke and lured Gingras off the six. I’ll take a shot at a minor upset in this wide open trot…EUROBOND moves into the Takter barn, qualified well and may take the all the way…WINNING SHADOW is the other Burke here and seems well prepped…OBRIGADO made a comeback last year and the 10 year old does have a lot of class if ready.

6 APPLE BOTTOM JEANS 6-1
1 IMPRINCESSGEMMA A 8-1

OCEANIA likes this track and returns for a high-percentage barn…YOU SHOULD BE HERE qualified sharply for return…SUDDEN PASSING N returns for the Burke barn and he often has his horses ready off layoffs…SUDDEN CHANGE N tired in her qualifier but she was very sharp at Yonkers earlier in the year and would be a strong contender here if ready.

RACE 11
3 CAPRICORNUS 5-2
1 VIOLET STRIDE 3-1
2 TRICKY SISTER 7-2
10 CRUCIAL 9-2

CAPRICORNUS returns for a top barn and was consistent as a two year old…VIOLET STRIDE qualified well fore turn and has a shot…TRICK SISTER adds lasix for her 3yo debut and won a stakes race over this track last fall…CRUCIAL returns for Burke and fits well here.
