Here are a few selections worth playing today:
4th — General Dan goes from optional claimers into a claiming event and has won one of five at the distance.
5th — The Big One has finished first or second in three of five races at the distance and retains the services of the hustling Martin Pedroza. Lockford deserves a look in the spot as well.
7th — Dadsalittleunusual lost a photo in his last and is being stepped up in class, a formula that often results in victory. South Coast figures in this spot as well. Martin Jones and Joe Talamo click at 21 percent when they team up, and the 5-year-old gelding has been first or second in seven of 12 starts.
8th — Stitchit and Paddlin Mud could both win here. They both deserve to be included in any late exotics, including pick threes and pick fours.
