Peak A Boo Is Worthy of a Look
After struggling at the end of 2001 and failing to win a race in four starts last year and his first three in 2003, Bobs Peak A Boo is on a mini-roll these days.
The 9-year-old gelding, who is owned by Karl Price and trained by Paul Price, has won two in a row and he has rewarded his supporters handsomely for those victories.
He was almost 20-1 when he won on March 13 and was 7-1 when he scored on April 6.
Seeking his 15th lifetime victory, the Idaho-bred will have seven opponents in the 870-yard race for $2,000 claimers.
The race is the first leg of the night’s second pick four and, beginning Friday, Los Alamitos is going to guarantee a $25,000 pick four pool every Friday night, covering races 1-4.
The picks: 1. Royal Juno Bug. 2. Shescape. 3. Leamer. 4. Give A Little. 5. Power Failure. 6. Cal Bred Prince. 7. Virama. 8. Spittin And Splittin. 9. Flynby.
Four! Use Highly Rated and Royal Juno Bug in the first, Shescape, Quick N Sweet and Crystal N’ Reign in the second, single the Leamer-Classic Impact entry in the third and Give A Little, Al Sorts Of Fast, Suribachi and Tie Up Traffic in the fourth.
Shots in the dark: Bobs Peak A Boo cuts back a bit in distance in the sixth after back-to-back victories. Wallstreet Shakem had trouble in his debut and keeps jockey Alex Bautista in the ninth.
