“Neil” Has Appeal At Saratoga (7/29)

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

Fast and good at the spa for the Friday card — there are thunderstorms in the forecast so watch for changing track conditions.  Did ok yesterday with 3 winners on top and one best bet, but need to do better as I get ready for my trip upstate next week.

In race 8, My Nan Neil (#5) cuts back to turf sprint in a race packed with speed — will be a good price and I love these cutbacks so I’m keying in all doubles and pick 3′s and playing an exacta box with #’s 4 and 7.

In race 5, Saratoga Steve (#5) should be in a good stalking position in this turf sprint and Leparoux knows how to get them home on the turf — I’m keying in all doubles and pick 3′s and playing an exacta box with #’s 8 and 1. Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 6 with 3 and 2

Race 2: 9 with 10 and 11

Race 3: 6 and 2

Race 4: 4 and 5

Race 5: 5 (Best Bet) with 8 and 1/1A

Race 6: 3 with 12, 1 and 4 (add if one of top 3 is scratched)

Race 7: 2 and 1

Race 8: 5 (Best Bet) with 4 and 7

Race 9: 8 with 10 and 7



Bet The “Farm” At Monmouth (7/29)

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

Fast and good at Monmouth for the Friday card — exciting racing in NJ over the weekend so I thought I would handicap today.

In race 8, Sold the Farm (#8) is lightly raced, claimed by sharp outfit and has the numbers to beat these on turf — I’m keying in all doubles and pick 3′s and playing an exacta box with #’s 5 and 7.

In race 5, Mo Slow Mo (#9) goes second off a long layoff and can stalk and pounce from this post — I’m keying in all doubles and pick 3′s and playing an exacta box with #’s 2 and 12.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 4 and 3

Race 2: 3 and 5

Race 3: 1 and 3

Race 4: 5, 8 and 1

Race 5: 9 (Best Bet) with 2 and 12

Race 6: 3, 4 and 2

Race 7: 4 with 6 and 8

Race 8: 8 (Best Bet) with 5 and 7

Race 9: 4 and 8

Race 10: 3 and 7

Race 11: 8 with 2 and 9

Race 12: 5 with 9 and 8
