1 of 12

The first month of the year is coming to a close this weekend and there a few events worth noting and playing on Saturday. Magna Five resumes Saturday, in 2010 the Magna 5 returns as a $1 minimum Pick Five wager on five races at selected tracks from coast-to-coast. Correctly pick all five winners to win the lion's share of the total pool. If nobody picks all five winners, a portion of the pool will carry over to the following Saturday's pool.

Magna 5 races begin at Laurel Park in Maryland and continue at major tracks around the country; tracks like Gulfstream Park in Florida, Santa Anita Park in Southern California and Golden Gate Fields in Northern California. The goal in a Pick Five is to select five consecutive winners from five specific races. It’s challenging, but the healthy payoffs are worth it.

Twinspires has a 1,000,000 point bonus on Saturday night’s Sam Houston Park Pick 3.

And of course, the Beat the Host challenge from Xpressbet continues. Again the week, my early strategy will be to beat Jon White to the first score, and then cover his plays. Sounds easy enough, we’ll see. Here are his early picks:
