“Catch” A Winner At Belmont (10/23)

Oct 23rd, 2011 | By | Category: Belmont, Today's Picks

Fast and good for the Sunday card — got shut out yesterday because I did not account for the speed bias on the main track so I will try and do better today.

In race 8, Catch a Thief (#1) is the main speed from the rail and has run well on the local track — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #6.

In race 9, St. Lucy (#2) cuts back to 7 furlongs on the turf and can sit a good stalking trip and run down the leaders late — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 3 and 5.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 10, 5 and 2

Race 2: 7, 1 and 8

Race 3: 2 and 4

Race 4: 2 and 6

Race 5: 2, 6 and 9

Race 6: 1 with 5 and 10

Race 7: 10, 3 and 1

Race 8: 1 (Best Bet) and 6

Race 9: 2 (Best Bet) with 3 and 5

Race 10: 4, 3 and 1



Some Like It “Hot” At Keeneland (10/23)

Oct 23rd, 2011 | By | Category: Keeneland, Today's Picks

Fast and firm for the Sunday card — tough luck yesterday when both my best bets ran second at 5-1, but I did have a $24 horse on top, a $337 exacta box and $1660 trifecta box in race 5.  Let’s see how I do today.

In race 7, Hot Hot Moma (#7) is as consistent as they come, gets a nice stalking post and has run well on the local surface — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 9 and 2.

In race 8, Hasay (#5) showed that the distance will be no problem in last and has positional speed to get a good trip — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 1 and 9.  Here’s the entire card without scratches since I’m posting early today and good luck!

Race 1: 7, 12 and 5

Race 2: 3 with 7 and 8

Race 3: 10, 7 and 2

Race 4: 10 with 7 and 4

Race 5: 13 with 11, 3 and (8) — use 8 only if one of top three scratches

Race 6: 10, 8 and 4

Race 7: 7 (Best Bet) with 9 and 2

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

Race 9: 4 and 9
