Riding “Shotgun” At Keeneland (10/8)

Oct 8th, 2011 | By | Category: Keeneland, Today's Picks

Fast and firm for a great Saturday card at Keeneland’s fall meet — had a good run at this track earlier this year so let’s see how I do today.

In race 6, a very competitive Grade 2, Shotgun Gulch (#2) has won a grade 1 at this track under this rider and should be flying late in a race filled with speed — key in all multi-race wagers and play an exacta box with #’s 10 and 1.

In race 7, Bay to Bay (#1) cuts back to best distance, gets a good post and has run well over the course — price play in a tough race.  Key in all multi-race wagers and play an exacta box with #’s 3 and 7.  Here’s the entire card (Gio Ponti also looks good) and good luck!

Race 1: 5 and 2

Race 2: 2, 11 and 5

Race 3: 4 and 1

Race 4: 3 and 4

Race 5: 9 with 2 and 5

Race 6: 2 (Best Bet) with 10 and 1

Race 7: 1 (Best Bet) with 3 and 7

Race 8: 7, 11 and 2

Race 9: 5 and 4

Race 10: 7, 9 and 2



“Duck” Brings Luck At Belmont (10/8)

Oct 8th, 2011 | By | Category: Belmont, Today's Picks

Fast and firm for the Saturday card — it’s Yom Kippur so let me start repenting for last Saturday which was a total disaster.  Back from London and I’m ready to go today!

In race 10, Rubber Duck (#5) drops into a much easier field after two mediocre starts in U.S. — key in all late multi-race wagers and play an exacta box with #’s 12 and 2.

In race 9, the Grade 1 Champagne, Alpha (#5) settled and ran away from the field in his debut at 7 furlongs and could be any kind for McLaughlin — key in late double and pick 3 and play an exacta box with #6.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 1, 4 and 3

Race 2: 4, 2 and 14

Race 3: 8 and 4

Race 4: 3, 2 and 12

Race 5: 9 with 10 and 4

Race 6: 8 and 10

Race 7: 8 with 6 and 1

Race 8: 5 and 1

Race 9: 5 (Best Bet) and 6

Race 10: 5 with 12 and 2
