Pimlico Selections for Saturday and Derby Lowdown

May 05, 2012 | Gary Quill

Pimlico Logo My detailed analysis of the Kentucky Derby can be found by clicking here. In short, I’m putting just under $100 into the race to play….

$10 WIN, PLACE, SHOW on # 13 (Went The Day Well) cost: $30

$2 EXACTA BOX on #4 (Union Rags), # 13 (Went The Day Well), # 15 (Gemologist), #19 (I’ll Have Another) cost: $48

$1 TRIFECTA PART-WHEEL #4, #7, #13, #15, #17 with #19 (I’ll Have Another).in 2nd spot with #4, #7, #13, #15, #17 cost: $20

Recapping selections from Day 20 (Friday, May 4th) had 7 winners (5 Top Selections) with the $2 Early Double ($6.60); $2 Exacta in the 2nd ($18.40), 9th ($8.60) and 10th ($44.60) races; $1 Trifecta in 2nd ($15.70) and 10th ($85.80); $2 Late Double ($34.80).

The BEST BET (20 8-6-2) simply overmatched his rivals and broke his maiden for fun, but nearly everyone was on him as he went off at 2-5 odds, paying $2.80 to WIN, $2.10 to PLACE and $2.10 to SHOW. The LONGSHOT PICK (20 2-2-7) took an easy lead going long, gave it up in mid-stretch, but held on gamely for third at 9-1, returning $4.20 to SHOW.
