Try The Late Pick Three At Belmont (5/31)

May 31st, 2009 | By | Category: Belmont

Fast and good at Belmont today.  Let’s try to hit the late pick three (races 8-10).  In race 8, Hannah Can Fly (#8) may be a live longshot in The Cupecoy’s Joy.  I’m using her in pick threes and and up and down in exactas with Mother Russia (#11) and Won Token (#10).  In race 9, a tough Optional Claimer on the turf, use Nergal (#2) in exactas with Ballast (#4) and Prince Rahy (#3) and in pick threes.  In race 10, another tough race, use Catty Madeline (#9) in exactas with Crazy Catlady (#7) and Exonerated (#1) in exactas and in pick threes.  Here’s the entire card — good luck!

Race 1: 1A with 5 and 2B

Race 2: 2 and 4

Race 3: 6 and 3

Race 4: 1 and 7

Race 5: 6 and 10

Race 6: 10 (Best Bet) and 1

Race 7: 4 and 10

Race 8: 8 (Best Bet) with 11 and 10

Race 9: 2 (Best Bet) with 4 and 3

We are fast and good at Monmouth today.  The card features a very competitive 8th race a 5 1/2 turf sprint and a standout horse in the 9th (Hanna Banana – #3).  I will key her in doubles with Mr Silver (#6), Cesare Beware (#10) and Rockhurst (#2).  I will also bet an exacta box with Study Abroad (#2), the likely favorite.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

A “Best Bet” Extravaganza At Belmont (5/30)

May 31st, 2009 | By | Category: Today's Picks

When you handicap, it’s great not only when you win, but when your top picks deliver!  My two best bets (races 8 and 9)  both won (Scolara — $6.60 and Gozzip Girl — $5).  In fact, I had 6 winners listed out of nine races and 4 on top, with a ROI of $4.10!  Some other highlights:

Race 1: Cold exacta (2 and 7) paid $37.20

Race 2: Exacta box (6 and 8) paid $14.40; double was $12.20

Race 8: In addition to the winner, also had exacta box (6 and 10) for $35.20 and triple box (6, 8 and 10) for $98!

Be back with today’s picks at 12:30pm!



Let’s “Gozzip” About Today’s Card At Belmont (5/30)

May 30th, 2009 | By | Category: Belmont, Today's Picks

Back on the turf (except race 5) and a fast track for today’s card at Belmont.  In the featured 9th race, The Sands Point, Gozzip Girl must stay close in a paceless race to fire her best shot, but she looks best.  I’m keying her in doubles and pick threes.  In the 8th race, The McKaymakenna, Scolara (#6) looks good from off the pace.  I’m using her up and down with Pastel Gal (#8) and Kristi With a K (#10).  Here’s the whole card except race 5 — good luck!

Race 1: 2 and 7

Race 2: 8 and 6

Race 3: 5 and 3

Race 4: 3 and 5

Race 6: 1 and 5

Race 7: 9 and 1

Race 8: 6(Best Bet) with 8 and 10

Race 9: 4 (Best Bet)

Race 10: 7
