There's no sugar coating the disaster that was my selections on Friday. Thankfully, there are 23 races today between the Jenny Wiley card at Keeneland and the Arkansas Derby card at Oaklawn to get us right going into the final push toward the Kentucky Derby.

These are the final two Grade 1 races until the Kentucky Oaks on Friday, May 6, at Churchill Downs, and the final 12 races in Arkansas until Oaklawn reopens in January. That hopefully means opportunity. There are three Pick 4s at each track. Races 2-5, 7-10, and 8-11 at Keeneland and races 2-5, 7-10, and 9-12 at Oaklawn. That means races 8, 9, 10 are essential at Keeneland and races 9-10 the key at Oaklawn. If I miss those my wagering day is more toast than melba.
