“Alpha” Is Top Dog At Gulfstream (12/31)

Dec 31st, 2011 | By | Category: Today's Picks

Fast and firm for the Saturday card — just wanted to wish all my family and friends a very happy, healthy and prosperous new year.  A good card today and I have had a few more winners on top over the last few days at this track — let’s see if we have something to celebrate before midnight!

In race 8, Sierra Alpha (#3) likes the turf marathon, can lead these on a slow pace and has run well on this course off a layoff — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 5 and 9.

In race 12, Sovereign Crisis (#5) loves the local sod and can stay close to a soft pace and beat these as the favorite — key in all multi-race wagers and play an exacta box with #’s 4 and 11. Here’s the entire card except race 1 which was cancelled!

Race 2: 5, 8 and 9

Race 3: 10 and 11

Race 4: 2 and 1

Race 5: 6, 2 and 8

Race 6: 3, 4 and 7

Just What The “Dr.” Ordered At Aqueduct (12/31)

Dec 31st, 2011 | By | Category: Today's Picks

Clear and fast for the Saturday card — still having trouble picking winners at the meet because of the inside speed bias, but I did have a nice exacta box in race 8 and 9, plus the late double on the Friday card and maybe I can keep the momentum going today!  A very happy, healthy and prosperous new year to all my friends and family — thanks to all of you for supporting me on my handicapping adventure!

In race 4, Dr. Copper (#5) had excuse in debut, gets blinkers for great connections with that move and Ramon stays — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #7.

In race 8, Stormy’s Majesty (#1) fires fresh for good layoff trainer and gets cozy post for wire job — key in all early multi-race wagers and play an exacta box with #7.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 3 and 4

Race 2: 9 and 10

Race 3: 8, 3 and 1

Race 4: 5 (Best Bet) and 7

Race 5: 6, 2 and 3

Enjoy The “Breeze” At Gulfstream (12/30)

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

Fast and firm for the Friday card — listed 6 winners (4 on top) on the Thursday card, but still need to have winners on top more consistently as the meet continues, so let’s see how I do this holiday weekend!

In race 3, Cajun Breeze (#8) goes second off a layoff and looks much better than these on paper — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #7.

In race 5, In the Rough (#7) is very consistent on turf and may have a pace advantage on these at a price — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 6 and 3.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 5 and 8

Race 2: 8, 6 and 11

Race 3: 8 (Best Bet) and 7

Race 4: 8, 2 and 3

Race 5: 7 (Best Bet) with 6 and 3

Race 6: 2 and 8

Race 7: 3 with 6 and 9

Race 8: 7 and 8

Race 9: 1 with 4 and 12

Race 10: 5 with 3 and 6

Race 11: 11, 1 and 7



“Trio” Number One At Aqueduct (12/30)

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

Clear and fast for the Friday card — didn’t do very well yesterday with only 3 winners listed (1 on top), but ran second in race 2 with a nice longshot and had the tri box in race 7.  Let’s see if I can improve today with a decent card on tap.

In race 7, Jupiter Trio (#7) goes second time off a layoff for a trainer that does well with that stat and is the closer in a race that should be fast early — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #2.

In race 3, Saint Damon (#5) gets pace advantage with all the speed scratching out of the race — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #1A.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 7, 4 and 6

Race 2: 2 and 7

Race 3: 5 (Best Bet) and 1A

Race 4: 9, 11 and 3

Race 5: 9, 6 and 4

Race 6: 4 and 2

Race 7: 7 (Best Bet) and 2

Race 8: 6 and 4

Race 9: 1, 5 and 9
