“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



“Mill” Has The Will At Saratoga (7/28)

Jul 28th, 2011 | By | Category: Saratoga, Today's Picks

Fast and firm for the Sunday card — I will be handicapping for 10 straight cards through next Sunday so let’s see how I do. Hope to see some of my friends up at Saratoga next week!

In race 7, The Quick Call, Great Mills (#8) is a perfect 2 for 2 at this sprint distance on turf, cuts back for this and is the closer in a race crying out for one — I’m keying in all doubles and pick 3′s and playing an exacta box with #’s 7 and 4.

In race 9, R Gypsy Gold (#6) ran well in Grade 1 Mother Goose last time and won only start convincingly at 2 turns — can take this even losing Velazquez to the favorite.  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: 2B and 8

Race 2: 5 and 3

Race 3: 2 and 9

Race 4: 6 with 2 and 1

Race 5: 4 with 8 and 7

Race 6: 10, 9 and 1

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

Race 8: 7, 5 and 3

Race 9: 6 (Best Bet) and 5

Race 10: 7 with 5 and 9



A “Frivolous” Pick At Saratoga (7/24)

Jul 24th, 2011 | By | Category: Saratoga, Today's Picks

Fast and firm at The Spa for the Sunday card — had 3 winners on top and a flat bet profit on Saturday and listed the late pick 3 so I will try and keep the momentum going today!

In race 7, Frivolous Buck (#7) has been beaten by many of these, but gets a real fast pace today and will be a big price — I’m keying in all doubles and pick 3′s and playing an exacta box with #’s 6 and 3.

In race 6, Coaltown Legend (#6) fires every time and can stay close enough to run these down late — I’m keying in all doubles and pick 3′s and playing an exacta box with #8.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 6 with 5 and 1

Race 2: 4 and 2

Race 3: 7, 9 and 11

Race 4: 6 and 1A

Race 5: 11, 13 and 5

Race 6: 6 and 8

Race 7: 7 (Best Bet) with 6 and 3

Race 8: 3, 6 and 1

Race 9: 6 and 7

Race 10: 9, 1 and 4
