Catch “Ketch” At Gulfstream (1/30)

Jan 30th, 2011 | By | Category: Today's Picks

Fast and firm for the Sunday card — hope to do better than yesterday where I only listed two short priced winners and really didn’t have a clue!

In race 9, She’s a Ketch (#12) is very lightly raced but ran great sprinting on the turf in two starts last year and has great connections in his corner — I’m keying in all doubles and pick 3′s and playing an exacta box with #’s 3 and 10.

In race 7, Dubai Dancer (#3) benefits greatly by the scratch of #2 and should have a pace advantage in here — I’m keying in all doubles and pick 3′s and playing an exacta box with #7.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 3 and 7

Race 2: 1 and 6

Race 3: 2 and 5

Race 4: 6 with 3 and 8

Race 5: 4 and 1

Race 6: 2, 4 and 10

Race 7: 3 (Best Bet) and 7

Race 8: 4 and 2

Race 9: 12 (Best Bet) with 3 and 10

Race 10: 4 and 7

Race 11: 1 and 5



Could Be A “Handful” At Aqueduct (1/30)

Jan 30th, 2011 | By | Category: Today's Picks

Clear and good for the Sunday card — finally a decent card to handicap.  Had 3 winners on top yesterday, but ran second with a 9-1 shot and an 11-1 shot in a card that featured some big prices and surprising results — let’s see how I do today.

In race 8, Speight of Hand (#6) fires every time and may get a great stalking trip behind a rapid pace and will be a decent price — I’m keying in all doubles and pick 3′s and playing an exacta box with #5.

In race 6, Katskill Bay (#4) goes first off the claim for Dutrow and has a versatile running style which will help in a race with lots of speed types — I’m keying in all doubles and pick 3′s and playing an exacta box with #’s 8 and 7.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 3 and 1

Race 2: 7 and 1

Race 3: 1 and 3

Race 4: 4 and 1A

Race 5: 6 and 2

Race 6: 4 (Best Bet) with 8 and 7

Race 7: 9 with 7 and 5

Race 8: 6 (Best Bet) and 5

Race 9: 4, 9 and 5



“Hallelujah” Worth A Million At Gulfstream (1/29)

Jan 29th, 2011 | By | Category: Today's Picks

Fast and firm for Sunshine Millions Day at Gulfstream with another great card to handicap.  Had a great last Sunday, including a $15.70 best bet so I will try and keep the momentum going today!

In race 8, The Sunshine Milliions Filly & Mare Sprint, Amen Hallelujah (#7) cuts back to 6 furlongs off a long layoff, loves Gulfstream and is 2 for 2 at the distance — doesn’t need to be cranked up today to beat these.  I’m keying in all doubles and pick 3′s and playing an exacta box with #3.

In race 2, Middle of the Nite (#6) cuts back to a sprint after tiring in a route against better — I’m keying in all doubles and pick 3′s and playing an exacta box with #3.

At Santa Anita, I like the following horses in the Sunshine Millions race there: Race 5: 7 & 3; Race 6: 8 & 3; Race 7: 7 & 8. Here’s the entire card at Gulfstream and good luck!

Race 1: 4, 12 and 7

Race 2: 6 (Best Bet) and 3

Race 3: 11, 10 and 1

Race 4: 3 and 6

Race 5: 4 and 1

Race 6: 9 and 8

Race 7: 9 and 3

Race 8: 7 (Best Bet) and 3

Race 9: 9 with 4 and 5

Race 10: 8 with 1 and 2

Race 11: 7 and 6



“Bellariffic” Terrific At Aqueduct (1/29)

Jan 29th, 2011 | By | Category: Today's Picks

Cloudy and good for the Saturday card at Aqueduct with a possibility of snow flurries later in the day.  This is another terrible card — last Sunday I listed all 9 winners, 4 on top, and still didn’t have a flat bet profit.  That tells you how bad the racing has been in NY — once again, I’m focusing on Gulfstream!

In race 9, Ballariffic (#2) just has to repeat last for good connections to beat these — I’m keying in the late double, pick 3 and pick 4, plus playing an exacta box with #12.

In race 4, Brothers Outlaw (#3) can stay close to a modest pace and run these down — I’m keying in all doubles and pick 3′s and playing an exacta box with #4.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 8 and 5

Race 2: 3 and 6

Race 3: 2 and 5

Race 4: 3 (Best Bet) and 4

Race 5: 8 and 2

Race 6: 3 and 2

Race 7: 11 and 2

Race 8: 6 and 8

Race 9: 2 (Best Bet) and 12
