“Storm Is Tempting” At Belmont (9/25)

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

Fast for the Sunday card but we lost all the turf races due to bad weather the last couple of days so stick to football today.  Listed 5 winners (2 on top) on Saturday, but I need to do better today with this uninspiring card.

In race 1, Tempest Storm (#1A) towers over these on paper and should win this on or just off the pace — key in all the early multi-race wager and play an exacta box with #7.

In race 7, Akilina (#7) has run well on dirt in past and may be overlooked in this off the turf affair — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #9.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 1A (Best Bet) and 7

Race 2: 5 and 3

Race 3: 3 and 6

Race 4: 3 and 13

Race 5: 6 and 5

Race 6: 10 and 15

Race 7: 7 (Best Bet) and 9

Race 8: 15 and 6

Race 9: 2 and 5

Race 10: 15 and 9



Don’t Pass “Hall” At Belmont (9/24)

Sep 24th, 2011 | By | Category: Belmont, Today's Picks

Muddy and no turf racing on a wet Saturday in NY, but the races remain competitive and there may be some decent prices for those who can handle the track.  In race 9, The Grade 2 Gallant Bloom Handicap, Tamarind Hall (#4) was beaten by Tar Heel Mom in The Ballarina but is 3 for 3 on wet tracks and can sit a perfect stalking trip off the inside two and win this at a decent price — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #6.

In race 6, Mine Over Matter (#4) has done well in one turn races at a mile or more, likes Belmont and gets an off track — may be a decent price in this well matched field.  Key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 3 and 2.  I also like races 1 and 5.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 10 and 5

Race 2: 3, 6 and 2

Race 3: 9 and 6

Race 4: 6 and 5

Race 5: 14, 16 and 9

Race 6: 4 (Best Bet) with 3 and 2

Race 7: 1 and 9

Race 8: 16 and 13

Race 9: 4 (Best Bet) and 6

Race 10: 14, 8 and 15



Counting On The “De” At Belmont (9/18)

Sep 18th, 2011 | By | Category: Belmont, Today's Picks

Fast and firm for an uninspiring Sunday card — lots of chalk yesterday and it doesn’t look like much fun today either.  I think I’ll concentrate on football.

In race 6, Decennial (#3) likes the Belmont turf and cuts back to a sprint with a fast pace scenario — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 4 and 7.

In race 1, Take a Walk (#6) fires every time and claimed by good outfit — key in early double and pick 3 and play an exacta box with #’s 3 and 2.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 6 (Best Bet) with 4 and 7

Race 2: 6, 7 and 2

Race 3: 7, 4 and 3

Race 4: 4 and 6

Race 5: 4 and 11

Race 6: 3 (Best Bet) with 4 and 7

Race 7: 3 and 8

Race 8: 1 and 2

Race 9: 2 and 5

Race 10: 4, 6 and 1



On A “Mission” At Belmont (9/17)

Sep 17th, 2011 | By | Category: Belmont, Today's Picks

Fast and firm at Belmont for the Saturday card — had a great day last Saturday where I had 5 winners on top, so let’s see how I do today considering I’m a little jet-lagged from my London trip (got home last night).

In race 8, Seattle Mission (#6) has been a beaten favorite so many times, you would be crazy to bet him again.  However, he likes Belmont and takes the blinkers off so he may revert to stalking today and this is a field he should beat — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #12.

In race 4, Knockout (#6) can stalk Cousin Rich (#8) and should get first run on the closers — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #8.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 5, 8 and 10

Race 2: 3 and 6

Race 3: 1, 10 and 7

Race 4: 6 (Best Bet) with 8 and 2

Race 5: 3, 1 and 6

Race 6: 10 with 7 and 11

Race 7: 5 and 2

Race 8: 6 (Best Bet) and 12

Race 9: 1, 6 and 4

Race 10: 9, 11 and 3
