Being A “Diva” At Belmont (6/26)

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

Fast and firm at Belmont for the Sunday card — had a great day on Saturday when I listed 8 winners, 2 on top (including a $22 horse), plus two great exacta boxes in races #5 and #8 and a $465 pick 3.  Hope to do even better today!

In race 8, Divalarious (#2) takes on winners for the first time but had tremendous turf upside and can take this — I’m keying in all doubles and pick 3′s and playing an exacta box with #’s 6 and 5.

In race 6, Miss Valentine (#5) had an excuse in last and should make amends as the second choice in this statebred stakes — I’m keying in all doubles and pick 3′s and playing an exacta box with#1.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 6 and 1

Race 2: 4 and 5

Race 3: 4 and 7

Race 4: 4, 5 and 6

Race 5: 6, 4 and 7

Race 6: 5 (Best Bet) and 1

Race 7: 7 with 10 and 8

Race 8: 2 (Best Bet) with 6 and 5

Race 9: 5 and 4

Race 10: 3 with 8 and 6



Hoping “Laredo” Wins The Shootout At Churchill (6/26)

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

Sloppy and off the turf for the Sunday card — had a great Saturday when I listed 6 winners, 3 on top, with a great flat bet profit and 4 pick 3′s (including one for over $550)! Not so crazy about the rain today, but I have to give it a try.

In race 6, Laredo (#9) goes from a tricky outside post, but is the in-form closer in a race packed with speed, likes it wet and has done well locally — I’m keying in all doubles and pick 3′s and playing an exacta box with #’s 5 and 8.

In race 9, Pampering (#1) can handle the dirt in this off the turf sprint and will be a price — I’m keying in all doubles and pick 3′s and playing an exacta box with #5.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 1 and 2

Race 2: 4 and 6

Race 3: 3 and 5

Race 4: 6 and 3

Race 5: 5 and 6

Race 6: 9 (Best Bet) with 5 and 8

Race 7: 6, 12 and 5

Race 8: 4, 5 and 8

Race 9: 1 (Best Bet) and 5

Race 10: 5 and 7



“Fishing” For A Win At Belmont (6/25)

Jun 25th, 2011 | By | Category: Belmont, Today's Picks

Fast and firm at Belmont for the Saturday card — no pick 6 carryover to get excited about, but a decent card so let’s see how it goes!

In race 1, Fisherman’s Wharf (#2) is as consistent as they come and knows how to find the winner’s circle — sits a good trip just off the speed and should take this.  I’m keying in the early double and pick 3 and playing an exacta box with #’s 1 and 3.

In race 6, The Grade 2 New York, Zagora (#1) will appreciate the stretch out to 1 1/4 on turf and can stay close from cozy post in fairly paceless race — 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: 2 (Best Bet) with 1 and 3

Race 2: 3, 5 and 6

Race 3: 1 and 3

Race 4: 6 and 2

Race 5: 9, 5 and 3

Race 6: 1 (Best Bet) and 7

Race 7: 7 and 1

Race 8: 2 with 6 and 1

Race 9: 2 and 5

Race 10: 2 with 8 and 9

Fast and firm at Churchill for the Saturday card — let’s all be thankful that the track wasn’t severely damaged by the tornado activity in the area a few days ago!

In race 9, Lady Aspen (#10) cuts back to a one-turn mile and gets a good pace and nice stalking post — I’m keying in all doubles and pick 3′s and playing an exacta box with #’s 7 and 1.

In race 7, Simmstown (#3) goes turf to dirt and has a good race on that surface at Churchill — 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!
