Getting “Cozy” At Gulfstream (1/31)

Jan 31st, 2010 | By | Category: Today's Picks

Fast and firm at Gulfstream yesterday and I hope to do even better than yesterday — listed 6 winners, 3 on top and had a nice run in the last 5 races, culminating with listing a $240 pick 4 and had the last race exacta cold ($42.40).

In race 7, Cozy Lion (#3) returns after an 8 month layoff for Barclay Tagg, who has great numbers with returnees on the turf — I’m keying in all doubles and pick 3′s and playing an exacta box with Nineinthenine (#9) and Austons Sure Cure (#10).

In race 5, Fancy Footsteps (#3) shortens up to 5 furlongs on the turf and gets a great pace to run at — taken to upset at a nice price.  I’m playing in all doubles and pick 3′s an playing an exacta box with Fly Express (#2) and C Karma (#4).  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 5, 8 and 3

Race 2: 3 and 4

Race 3: 9 with 2 and 13

Race 4: 4 and 8

Race 5: 5 (Best Bet) with 2 and 4

Take One “Giant” Step At Aqueduct (1/31)

Jan 31st, 2010 | By | Category: Today's Picks

Fast and cold again at Aqueduct — a day after they canceled after the 3rd race because of extreme conditions.  Let’s see if they can get in an entire card, even though there won’t be much value.

In race 8, The Coyote Lakes, Giant Chieftan (#3) wasn’t beaten badly in the Gallant Fox against the two choices despite a difficult post and a wide trip — could upset at a nice price.  I’m keying in the late double and pick 3 and playing an exact box with Nite Light (#1), who could wire these from post 1.

In race 7, Neverbeendancin’ (#8) can sit right off a solid pace and run these down late. I’m keying in all doubles and pick 3′s and playing an exacta box with Henry Street (#4).  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 8 and 3

Race 2: 4 and 3

Race 3: 1 and 2

Race 4: 6 and 1

Race 5: 4 and 6

Race 6: 6 and 1

Race 7: 8 (Best Bet) and 4

Race 8: 3 (Best Bet) and 1

Race 9: 3 and 10



Have Your “Phil” At Gulfstream (1/30)

Jan 30th, 2010 | By | Category: Today's Picks

Fast and firm at Gulfstream on Sunshine Millions day.  In race 8, The Sprint, This Ones For Phil (#6) loves the track, is working fast and should romp off a short layoff.  I’m keying in all doubles and pick 3′s and playing an exacta box with Pashito The Che (#4).

In race 5, Triple E (#3) may like this turf sprint and had an excuse in his one start on the turf — the call to upset at a price.  I’m keying in all doubles and pick 3′s and playing an exacta box with Matt’s A Giant (#9) and Golden Weekend (#2).  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 8 and 5

Rice Can “Cook” At Aqueduct (1/30)

Jan 30th, 2010 | By | Category: Today's Picks

Fast and brutally cold at Aqueduct today.  Check out the early races to see if an inside speed bias is prevalent.  Trainer Linda Rice looks to have a couple of live horses on the card.

In race 2, Jess Not Jesse (#3) goes second time off a long layoff, has good speed and can handle the distance on the stretchout.  I’m keying in all doubles and pick 3′s and playing an exacta box with African Diamond (#8).

In race 6, Lord Greystoke (#3) comes off a long layoff but Linda has great stats and this one looks tons the best on paper and should wire these.  I’m keying in all doubles and pick 3′s and playing an exacta box with One Turn Eddie (#8).  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 8 and 4

Race 2: 3 (Best Bet) and 8

Race 3: 2 and 1

Race 4: 6 and 7

Race 5: 4 and 1

Race 6: 3 (Best Bet) and 8
