Friday, CD, RACE 4: Providing that the fourth race on Oaks Friday is run on the turf, how could I Can Do Anything (7-2) not be the single that starts the second Pick 4 of the afternoon? I acknowledge that Life Mission (3-1) had the much tougher trip when they met at Keeneland Apr. 13, but post positions, 3 and 12, respectively, favor the former, not the latter. Guess that's why they call it gambling.

NOTE: Listed choices delineate contenders in groupings of A's, B's and C's. The latter two rankings, B's and C's, are horses which ideally should be used in multiple vertical combinations--exactas, super-exotics, and the like. As such, 'B' and 'C' horses can be moved up or down the scale--only one level each way-- reflecting the reader's opinions. 'A' horses are prime choices which can be used in equal measure in horizontal pools. For bookkeeping, when more than one 'A' horse appears, the horse listed first will count toward the running totals.
