Friday's free horse racing picks come to us from Remington Park as racing handicapper Andrew Champagne breaks down his late Pick Four here.

Friday Free Horse Racing Picks: Late Pick Four at Remington Park

Friday night’s card at Remington Park features a pair of stakes races, and they bookend the program’s late Pick Four sequence. It starts in the sixth, ends in the ninth, and will be attacked by this writer with a $40 ticket. Here’s how I’ve put it together.

RACE #6: The first stakes race is the Red Earth for Oklahoma-breds going 7 1/2 furlongs on the turf. This event drew a field of seven, but I think there’s a standout, and I’ll single that runner.

#6 COWBOY MISCHIEF comes in off of a win over several runners he’ll face in this spot, and that effort came at this route of ground just a few weeks ago. If you solely consider the races he’s run against fellow Oklahoma-breds on turf, his record looks stellar, and I think he’ll sit an ideal trip rating just off of what seems to be a solid early pace. A repeat of his last-out effort will make him tough to beat, and I’ll lean on him to kick things off.

RACE #7: Good luck with this one, folks! We’ve got a field of seven 2-year-old maidens set to go postward here, and every horse will be debuting.

I’m going two-deep, and my top pick is a bit of a price. #7 REVOLT AND RIOT has been working consistently for trainer C.R. Trout, who’s gotten off to a tremendous start at this stand. He’s a son of Constitution, so he has every right to be precocious, and I love the outside draw, which should give him a better chance to break well against other inexperienced horses.

I’ll also use #5 BRICK TOWN, one of two runners trained by Ray Ashford. He seems to have been outworking stablemate #1 BAYRON in the mornings, and top local jockey Leandro Goncalves sees fit to ride when he probably had a choice.

RACE #8: Going a bit slim to start paves the way for me to shrug my shoulders at this non-winners-of-two claiming race. Many of these runners have been at this level for a while, and I simply cannot find a reason to bet many of them at their likely prices. #10 MAJOR KING, for instance, is the 3-1 morning-line favorite, but he’s 1-for-25, and his lone career victory came over a synthetic surface.

Suppose you have confidence in this race, more power to you. I have none of it, and I’m hitting the “ALL” button. I think there’s a chance a big price backs into a victory in this event, and if one does, this strategy could produce a considerable windfall.

RACE #9: We’ll finish things off with the Bob Barry Memorial, the Red Earth’s “sister race.” Fillies and mares will go two turns on the turf in the Friday nightcap, and I’ll look to bring this ticket home by going four-deep.

#7 HAWAIIAN TYPHOON ran terribly last time out, but she had every right to need that race. It was her first outing since November of last year, and she dueled through pretty fast fractions. She won this race last year in wire-to-wire fashion, and I think she’ll be far more fit here. The 8-1 morning line price hits me as a considerable overlay, in fact, and such a price would entice a win bet.

I’ll also use #3 SHE’S ALL WOLFE, #5 COUNTRY DAISY, and #6 TIZTHEBOSS. Country Daisy is the 5/2 morning line choice, but I think she’ll drift up, as her last-out win was her first victory since July of 2020. Your guess is as good as mine with regard to which of these will go favored, and I think this is a fun betting race to end on.


R6: 6

R7: 5,7


R9: 3,5,6,7
