A Successful “Mission” At Churchill (11/25)

Nov 25th, 2011 | By | Category: Churchill, Today's Picks

Fast and firm for the day after Thanksgiving card at Churchill — listed 7 winners on yesterday’s card, none on top, so until I get hot on the win end, you should play my picks in multiple race wagers to get the most value.  I am do for a hot day though so see what happens early in the card and play accordingly.

In race 11, The Grade 1 Clark Handicap, Mission Impazible (#5) is working well for this and gets a field without much early speed and can last a really long time against a tough group — key in all doubles and pick 3′s, play an exacta box with #’s 11 and 6, plus play a nice bet across the board.

In race 8, Depeche Chat (#4) is working well and handles the local course when there is a good pace — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #5.  I also like #5 in race 5 and #4 in race 9. Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 7 and 8

Race 2: 9, 5 and 7

Race 3: 2, 6 and 1

Race 4: 7, 10 and 9

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

Race 6: 2, 6 and 10

Race 7: 7, 8 and 6

Race 8: 4 (Best Bet) and 5

Race 9: 4 (Best Bet) and 7

Race 10: 9, 3 and 2

Race 11: 5 (Best Bet) with 11 and 6

Race 12: 3, 2 and 1

Muddy and off the turf for the Thanksgiving card — haven’t had much success since the meet started, but I’m do to heat up on Turkey Day!

In race 4, Mineswept (#4) gets a great pace to close into and will run these down late as the favorite — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 3 and 7.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 9 and 4

Race 2: 6 and 1A

Race 3: 3 and 6

Race 4: 4 (Best Bet) with 3 and 7

Race 5: 1 and 11

Race 6: 4 and 1

Race 7: 6 and 16

Race 8: 2 and 4 (Note: 1X becomes top pick if he runs!)

Race 9: 9 and 3

“Crane” Runs Them Over At Aqueduct (11/20)

Nov 20th, 2011 | By | Category: Today's Picks

Fast and firm for the Sunday card — still haven’t found the touch at Aqueduct so I will try to do better today! I actually like the card!

In race 3, Icabad Crane (#5) is the closer in a race packed with speed and the cutback to one turn can be a benefit if the track is playing fair — key in all doubles an pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #7.

In race 5, Westside Corral (#4) has been consistent on turf, won on local sod and gets a good pace to run at — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 8 and 2.

In race 8, Shrewd One (#4) gets back on main track and has back form that can win this at a price — key in all multi-race wagers and play an exacta box with #’s 2 and 9.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 7 and 5

Race 2: 5 with 6 and 8

Race 3: 5 (Best Bet) and 7

Race 4: 1, 3 and 4

Race 5: 4 (Best Bet) with 8 and 2
