“Grass” Is Greener At Belmont (9/10)

Sep 10th, 2011 | By | Category: Belmont, Today's Picks

Fast and good on opening day of the Belmont fall meet with races 5 and 6 taken off the turf.  Had a hot streak in the last several days at Saratoga — let’s see if it carries over to Belmont.

In race 9, The Grade 2 Bowling Green, Grassy (#7) gets a non-firm course and has the numbers to win this as the favorite — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #1.

In race 5, Mr. Magenta (#15) can sit a perfect trip right off the speed in this off the turf sprint and has run well on the local main track — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 8 and 13.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 3 and 7

Race 2: 4 and 7

Race 3: 5 and 7

Race 4: 6 and 1

Race 5: 15 (Best Bet) with 8 and 13

Race 7: 1, 7 and 5

Race 8: 8, 2 and 7

Race 9: 7 (Best Bet) and 1

Race 10: 2 with 9 and 7



A True “Patriot” At Saratoga (9/5)

Sep 5th, 2011 | By | Category: Saratoga, Today's Picks

Sloppy and soft for the final card at Saratoga with races 1,5,6 and 11 off the turf.  There is more rain in the forecast so watch for the other two races to be moved, but I’m handicapping as if they will remain on the turf.

In race 8, Fiddlers Patriot (#7) likes soft turf and can take these all the way given the early scratches — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #5.

In race 7, Haya’s Boy (#8) gets a wet track and a field he can beat — breaks maiden today.  Key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 1 and 6.

In race 1, Cindy’s Joy (#8) has run well on a wet track and can handle the distance — should be able to beat these in this off-the-turf contest.  Key in early double and pick 3 and play an exacta box with #16.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 8 (Best Bet) and 16

Race 2: 7, 2 and 3

Race 3: 7 and 8

Race 4: 7 with 1A and 3

Race 5: 14 and 10

Race 6: 11, 13 and 4

Race 7: 8 (Best Bet) with 1 and 6

Race 8: 7 (Best Bet) and 5

Race 9: 1 and 9

Race 10: 11 with 8 and 3

Race 11: 6 and 10



Hail To The “King” At Saratoga (9/4)

Sep 4th, 2011 | By | Category: Saratoga, Today's Picks

Fast and firm for the next to last day at The Spa.  Sorry to see the meet end since I have been hot lately — had a good day on Saturday when I listed 7 winners, 3 on top, including a 5-1 best bet in race 1.  The three- horse exacta box play was also very profitable as it has been all meet so please take notice when making wagers today and tomorrow.  Please note that today’s selections are posted without scratches taken into account so play accordingly.

In race 9, The Grade 3 Saranac,  King Congie (#8) ran against grade 2 foes from a wide post in last and has posted numbers on the turf that could win this at a price — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 5 and 6.

In race 8, Paci Di Notte (#2) ran well in last local turf sprint from a wide post, gets inside today and has positional speed to get a good trip — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 7 and 9.

In race 11, Schillerette (#4) cuts back to turf sprint with lots of speed signed on to set up late run — key in late double and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with 1 and 13.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 5. 10 and 3

Race 2: 4 and 5

Race 3: 4

Race 4: 7 with 4 and 12

Race 5: 7 and 2

Race 6: 6, 7 and 11

Race 12: 4 (Best Bet) with 10 and 3



“Luck” Be A “Lady” At Saratoga (9/3)

Sep 3rd, 2011 | By | Category: Saratoga, Today's Picks

Fast and firm for the Saturday card — a very difficult 12 race affair with 3 grade 1′s so let’s what happens.  Ended up with a flat bet profit on Friday with two winners on top (5 listed) and a nice $158 double to end the card.

In race 3, Lady’s Lunar Luck (#7) had a wide trip in last chasing a fast pace, can stalk today and win at a decent price for good connections — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 12 and 1.

In race 1, Sugar Again (#8) has run well on turf in 4 starts and goes second off a layoff for trainer doing well at the meet — key in early double and pick 3 and play an exacta box with #’s 1 and 9.

In race 9, The Grade 1 Forego, Regal Ransom (#8) will be a big price off recent races, but cuts back to best distance and loves this track — play across the board, key in doubles and pick 3′s and use in exacta box with #’s 4 and 1.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!
