Ready To “Strike” At Churchill (10/30)

Oct 30th, 2011 | By | Category: Churchill, Today's Picks

Fast and firm for the opening day card at Churchill — thought I would get a head start on handicapping this track in preparation for the Breeders Cup and Belmont is canceled so let’s see how I do with 2 year olds today.

In race 8, The Grade 3 Iroquois, Mr. Bowling (#7) cuts back to one turn off runaway win going longer — gets a good stalking outside post and can run down the leaders late.  Key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #4.

In race 5, Amie’s Dini (#3) romped in debut against lesser, but gets a great pace set-up and can repeat at a price — key in all multi-race wagers and play an exacta box with #’s 9 and 8.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 3, 6 and 8

Race 2: 7, 6 and 2

Race 3: 2, 1 and 7

Race 4: 4, 8 and 5

Race 5: 3 (Best Bet) with 9 and 8

Race 6: 5, 9 and 10

Race 7: 7 with 4 and 5

Race 8: 7 (Best Bet) and 4

Race 9: 8, 3 and 11

Race 10: 11, 4 and 9

Race 11: 11, 6 and 12
