The first piece of advice related to how to bet the Pick 4s on Million Preview day--Saturday, July 9, at Arlington International Racecourse--is to do it on where all winning tickets will receive a 10% bonus (up to $500, click the image for details).

The second piece of advice is to narrow where you're confident and spread where you're not. For me, that's in races 1, 4, 6, and 9 (coincidentally the first and last legs of each of the Pick 4s).

For the early Pick 4, that's a 2x3 double relying on the debut runners in race 1 and the proven stakes fillies in the Beverly D. prep.

For the late Pick 4, that's a 1x2 double relyong on The Pizza Man to deliver win, and the last-race allowance to run to form. Singling The Pizza Man also allows us to play the Pick 5 on races 5-9.

To recap the Million preview races, we're confident in our Modesty and Stars & Stripes opinions but hoping for some prices in the Million and Secretariat preps. He's not a single, but even at half his morning line odds, Oscar Nominated intrigues today, and he is the top pick in there at a decent price. I also picked Ramsey on top in the Modesty. Could be a big day for the owner who dreams of Royal Ascot glory.
