Could Be A “Princess” Of A Day At Churchill (5/29)

May 29th, 2009 | By | Category: Churchill, Today's Picks

Fast and firm at Churchill.  In the 6th race today, I love Princess Westly (#6). In a race loaded with speed, this Dale Romans mare will be closing stoutly and should get the job done at a decent price.  I’m keying her in all my doubles and pick threes and using Fancy Footsteps (#7) in an exacta box.  Here’s the whole card — good luck!

Race 1: 3 and 2

Race 2: 5 and 6

Race 3: 7 and 6

Race 4: 3 and 2

Race 5: 6 and 2

Race 6: 6 (Best Bet) and 7

Race 7: 6 and 7

Race 8: 6 (Best Bet) and 4

Race 9: 2 and 6

Race 10: 4 and 9



Is There Enough Speed To Set Up Bribon In The Met?

May 25th, 2009 | By | Category: Belmont, Today's Picks

Fast and firm at Belmont on Memorial Day.  Today is my favorite race of the year, The Metropolitan Handicap (Race 10).  But the scratch of Mr. Fantasy, may change the complexion of the race.  Bribon (#10) is my pick.  He loves Belmont and can stay close enough to a moderate pace and gain ground to be a major factor.  He will have to be close because the pace picture got slower with the scratch of Mr. Fantasy.  I’ll play Bribon to win and use him up and down with Driven By Success (#12), who will be the main speed, and Smooth Air (#2), who might find a mile to his liking!  Here’s the entire card — good luck!

Race 1: 6 and 7

Race 2: 3 and 10

Race 3: 7 and 1

Race 4: 2 with 6 and 4

Race 5: 6 (Best Bet) and 1
