Horse racing continues to take place daily during the coronavirus pandemic, and on Tuesday the Francisco Bravo-trained Always Inthe Munny will try to win for the second time in her young career when she leaves the starting gate at Will Rogers Downs in Claremore, Okla. A 3-year-old daughter of Munnings, Always Inthe Munny has always finished in the money in three career starts (one win, one second and one third). On Tuesday she has been installed as the 3-1 favorite in Race 9.
The race is the third leg of the late Pick 4, which requires a bettor to pick the winner in four consecutive races. The late Pick 4 begins with Race 7 at 5:15 p.m. ET and ends with Race 10. National handicapping champion Jonathon Kinchen has evaluated each of the four races in the late Pick 4, and, with the sequence featuring competitive fields, you'll want to see his horse racing predictions and best bets before building any late Pick 4 tickets at Will Rogers Downs for Tuesday, May 12.
Kinchen is one of the nation's most successful and recognizable horseplayers. An analyst for Fox Sports' "Saturday at the Races," Kinchen won the National Horseplayers Championship Tour in 2015, a demanding, yearlong series of handicapping events across the country. That same year, he became the only player in history to have both of his entries qualify for the final table of the National Horseplayers Championship.
In addition, Kinchen has scored huge on some of racing's biggest days. At the 2015 Kentucky Derby, he cashed for $150,000 after nailing a Pick 6 and a $300 cold Pick 3 that paid $50,000. He also hit a Pick 4 for $84,000 on Belmont Stakes day in 2010, one of several five-figure days he has had at the track.
He's currently riding a hot streak on his horse racing picks for SportsLine. In the Fountain of Youth Stakes in February, Kinchen nailed an $80 win bet on Ete Indien that paid a healthy $344. In the Beholder Mile in March, he gave out a $50 exacta that paid $550. On April 2 he hit the late Pick 4 at Oaklawn Park, which paid $221.55.
On April 11 he crushed the Oaklawn Stakes, giving out a $5 exacta that paid a whopping $1,338. Three days later he hit the Pick 4 once again, this time at Will Rogers Downs, for $649.60. In the Apple Blossom Handicap on April 18 he nailed a $25 win bet on Ce Ce, which paid $245. On April 22 he hit the late Pick 4 at Will Rogers again, this time for $129, and on April 24 he won $687 after hitting the late Pick 4 at Oaklawn.

Top Will Rogers Downs Pick 4 predictions for May 12
Kinchen is high on A Guy Like Me, a 10-1 long shot in Race 10. A 3-year-old gelded son of Special Rate, A Guy Like Me has one win and two thirds in seven career starts. He is coming off a third-place finish at Will Rogers Downs on May 5.
But that race came against allowance company, and Tuesday's race is a claiming one. This horse "has speed and an inside draw and drops in for a tag," Kinchen tells SportsLine.
Kinchen also is high on Okie Logic, the 5-2 favorite in Race 7. A 3-year-old daughter of Oxbow, Okie Logic has one second in two career starts. She finished eighth in her debut, at Remington Park in October, before finishing second on April 8.
That effort earned a Beyer Speed Figure of 54, the best in the field. "The speed figure that Okie Logic earned in her last race towers over this field," Kinchen added. "She ran fast early and likely won't need to use as much energy early this time around."
