I Got You “Babe” At Belmont (5/15)

May 15th, 2011 | By | Category: Belmont, Today's Picks

Good and firm for the Sunday card at Belmont — yesterday, only listed two winners on top but I really enjoyed speaking to a group of “singles” who loved being at the races and had a great time.  I also got to meet the very passionate David Prine who trains for Lois Engel at Pucker Ridge Racing — the kind of small outfit that really symbolizes the best of racing.  Can’t wait to visit the farm during the meet at Saratoga!

As for today, in race 6, Hey Babe (#8) cuts back to a turf sprint which might be her best distance and will run these down late at 2-1.  I’m keying in all doubles and pick 3′s and playing an exacta box with #9.

In race 7, Hoopskirt (#3) also cuts back to 7 furlongs on the turf and should get a good trip — I’m keying in all doubles and pick 3′s and playing an exacta box with #10.

In race 3, Shocking Behavior (#3) ran well in turf debut and then in Keeneland sprint — primed and ready to take this at 3-1.  I’m keying in all doubles and pick 3′s and playing an exacta box with #’s 8 and 6.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!
