“Meteor Showers” Forecast At Gulfstream (2/27)

Feb 27th, 2011 | By | Category: Today's Picks

Fast and firm at Gulfstream — listed 6 winners on Saturday’s card, but only 2 on top (including a 9-1 shot in race 4) so I had a flat bet profit on the day but couldn’t string them together.  Another good card today and hope to do better!

In race 10, The Grade 3 Canadian Turf, Twilight Meteor (#4) ran well against tougher last time and cuts back to a flat mile — can win this at a decent price with a good stalking trip.  I’m keying in all doubles and pick 3′s and playing an exacta box with #’s 2 and 3.

I also like Spark Plug (#7) in race 2, Hoop Skirt (#1 in race 5, Alisal (#1) in race 7 and Romin Robin (#1) in race 8. Play all of these up and down in exactas and use in doubles and pick 3′s.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 3 and 6

Race 2: 7 (Best Bet) and 4

Race 3: 1 and 8

Race 4: 2 and 1

Race 5: 1 (Best Bet) and 4

Race 6: 6 and 4

Race 7: 1 (Best Bet) and 4

Race 8: 1 (Best Bet) and 9

“Five Grand” Earns It At Aqueduct (2/27)

Feb 27th, 2011 | By | Category: Today's Picks

Clear and fast at Aqueduct — finally a Sunday card that has nuances that makes it a good handicapping card despite small fields.  Listed 6 winners, 3 on top for the Saturday card — but that wasn’t good enough to make the day profitable so let’s see what happens today.

In race 8, Five Grand Girl (#4) is in career best form and could be in a great spot if the #5 runs with the big favorite (#2) — I’m keying in all doubles and pick 3′s and playing an exacta box with #2.

In race 3, Doast (#4) adds blinkers and can win this if reproducing career best figure — I’m keying in all doubles and pick 3′s and playing an exacta box with #6.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 6 and 4

Race 2: 1 and 7

Race 3: 4 (Best Bet) and 6

Race 4: 5 and 1

Race 5: 2 and 7

Race 6: 7 and 2

Race 7: 4 and 6

Race 8: 4 (Best Bet) and 2

Race 9: 4 and 5



Follow The “Leparoux” At Gulfstream (2/26)

Feb 26th, 2011 | By | Category: Today's Picks

Fast and firm at Gulfstream with another quality card on tap including The Fountain of Youth!  I have a good feeling about the card today so I’m confident we can have some winners on top during this competitive card.

The secret to making some money today is to watch when Julienne Leparoux gets off a logical horse to ride another horse in the same race. In races 7 and 8, Leparoux goes to Guys Reward (#9) and Dancinginherdreams (#9) respectively and both runners look primed and well spotted so I’m keying in all doubles and pick 3′s. Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 6 and 9

Race 2: 4, 5 and 9

Race 3: 5 and 6

Race 4: 4 and 9

Race 5: 4 and 5

Race 6: 10 and 4

Race 7: 9 (Best Bet) with 3 and 5

Race 8: 9 (Best Bet) and 5

Race 9: 7 and 4

Race 10: 2 and 7

Race 11: 8 with 4 and 5



Put One “Over” At Aqueduct (2/26)

Feb 26th, 2011 | By | Category: Today's Picks

Clear and fast for a decent Saturday card — let’s see if I can turn the momentum around and have a good day at Aqueduct for a change.

In race 4, Overcommunication (#5) cuts back to a sprint but can stay close enough to run these down late for good connections — I’m keying in all doubles and pick 3′s and playing an exacta box with #4.

In race 6, Auditorium (#2) gets a solid pace to set up late run — I’m keying in all doubles and pick 3′s and playing an exacta box with #6.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 3 and 5

Race 2: 5 and 3

Race 3: 2 and 3

Race 4: 5 (Best Bet) and 4

Race 5: 3 and 1
