Opening weekend at Keeneland Race Course in Lexington, Ky., is this weekend, and on Saturday the late Pick 4 begins with Race 8 at 4:57 p.m. ET and ends with the Blue Grass Stakes. Before you make any picks, you NEED to know how racing insider and accomplished horseplayer Bob Weir has handicapped the four-race sequence.
Based in Saratoga Springs, N.Y., Weir has been handicapping and following horse racing since reading Andy Beyer's landmark handicapping book "Picking Winners" in the late 1980s. Weir is highly invested in the Beyer Speed Figure, a number assigned to every race run by a horse that measures how fast the horse ran. He uses the figure as the backbone of his handicapping. In fact, thanks to his proficiency with speed figures and top-tier handicapping, he landed one of just eight spots on Beyer's figure-making team in 2017, a position he holds to this day.
Weir's methodology has produced multiple five-figure days. In 2014, he hit a $60,000 Pick 6 at Del Mar. The following year, he nailed a $31,000 Pick 6 at Gulfstream Park. In 2016 and 2017, Weir qualified for the prestigious National Horseplayers Championship in Las Vegas.
Last year, his first for SportsLine, Weir was on fire. In June, Weir hit a $2 superfecta in the Ogden Phipps Stakes that paid a whopping $1,039. He crushed the exacta and trifecta in the Forego Stakes in August for $1,134.50. He hit the late Pick 4 at Belmont Park on June 18, June 19, June 25, July 2 and July 5, with the June 25 score returning a whopping $2,159.50.
And just last month, he crushed the exacta in the Tampa Bay Derby for $1,414! Anyone who has followed Weir is way up.
Now, he has handicapped the late Pick 4 at Keeneland for Saturday, made his picks and constructed his tickets.
We can tell you that Weir is high on Imprimis, the 7-2 second choice in the Shakertown Stakes, the opening leg of the Pick 4. "He's the most likely to benefit from the race setup but will need to avoid trouble," Weir tells SportsLine. Imprimis is Weir's top pick in the Shakertown and a single A horse on his Pick 4 tickets.
In addition, Weir is high on an enormous double-digit long shot who will be one of the biggest prices on the card on Saturday! Weir says this horse is a "surprise package at big odds" and could spice up the Pick 4. Weir is using this double-digit long shot on his tickets, and so should you. You NEED to see Weir's analysis before making any Pick 4 selections.
So which double-digit long shot can win? And how has Weir constructed his Pick 4 tickets? ... Join SportsLine now to get late Pick 4 selections at Keeneland for Saturday, all from the racing insider who crushed the exacta in the Tampa Bay Derby for $1,414 last month!
