We have another Pick-6 carryover to aim for today – there’s $141,431 in the pool – and it won’t be easy because there doesn’t appear to be a slam dunk single in the six race scheme. Another carryover isn’t out of the question, but if you’re thinking about diving in, we hope the following analysis is of some use to you.

Trainer Mark Casse’s Woodbine shippers have acquitted themselves nicely early in the meeting and the stable appears to have a live one in #3 Pool Play in today’s 1st race. The Silver Deputy colt ran well in his only turf start and he appears well suited for the 10 furlong trip. His most logical challenger is #1 Oceanography, who returns to the lawn following a decent runner up try at this level in an off-the-turfer here opening day. Both should be used in your rolling exotics.
