Using Fine “China ” At Keeneland (10/15)

Oct 15th, 2011 | By | Category: Keeneland, Today's Picks

Fast and firm for the Saturday card — haven’t been able to get into a rhythm during the fall meet with some big fields and difficult races to handicap so let’s see how I do today.

In race 3, China (#5) gets back on favorite surface and can track the leaders and get up in time.  Key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #1.

In race 9, The Grade 1 Queen Elizabeth, Nereid (#5) was getting to Summer Soiree late in last and can turn the tables at a better price.  Key in all doubles an pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 1 and 8.

Race 1: 3 with 11 and 7

Race 2: 4 with 12 and 1

Race 3: 5 (Best Bet) and 1

Race 4: 2, 12 and 5

Race 5: 7, 1 and 8

Race 6: 1, 3 and 8

Race 7: 2, 3 and 9

Race 8: 6 with 4 and 8

Race 9: 5 (Best bet) with 1 and 8

Race 10: 4, 8 and 10



A Valuable “Denomination” At Belmont (10/15)

Oct 15th, 2011 | By | Category: Belmont, Today's Picks

Fast and yielding for the Saturday card with races 7 and 10 off the turf.  Not a great showing for the holiday card last Monday and the card today is uninspiring, but let’s see if we can get back on track.

In race 9, The Grade 3 Athenia, Denomination (#6) can benefit from soft turf and stay close enough to #7 and make first run on the closers.  Key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #3.

In race 10, Cold Precision (#1A) gets in for this off the turf affair and can stalk and pounce at this distance — key in all late multi-race wagers and play an exacta box with #2.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 1A, 11 and 4

Race 2: 2 and 4

Race 3: 6 and 2

Race 4: 3 and 6

Race 5: 4 and 3

Race 6: 1 and 2

Race 7: 12 and 5

Race 8: 3 and 9

Race 9: 6 (Best Bet) and 3

Race 10: 1A and 2
