A Relaxing “Day” At Gulfstream (1/22/12)

Jan 22nd, 2012 | By | Category: Today's Picks

Fast and firm for the Sunday card — listed 5 winners (only 2 on top) during a mediocre day on Saturday, but had the late double for $82 so let’s see if I can build on that today.

In race 10, Dayatthespa (#9) is lightly raced, ran great in all 3 starts and still has some upside — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 5 and 1.

In race 5, Depeche Cat (#3) has been ultra consistent in 7 starts and may be suited to the mile — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 8 and 7.

In race 11, Ha Long Bay (#7) gets fast pace on turf and likes the local sod — key in all late multi-race wagers and play an exacta box with #’s 11 and 10.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 4 and 2

Race 2: 4, 6 and 8

Race 3: 8 and 6

Race 4: 9, 11 and 1

Race 5: 3 (Best Bet) with 8 and 7

A “Royal Sighting” At Aqueduct (1/22/12)

Jan 22nd, 2012 | By | Category: Today's Picks

Clear and fast for the Sunday card — enjoyed handicapping The Fairgrounds when Aqueduct cancelled yesterday (listed 7 winners), but now I’m back to dreary New York with another uninspiring card.

In race 3, Royal Sighting (#3) gets fast pace to set up late run and will beat these if he can run back to best numbers on the inner track — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #7.

In race 7, Leave of Absence (#6) projects to have a great stalking trip and get up against these — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #5.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 4 and 5

Race 2: 1, 7 and 4

Race 3: 3 (Best Bet) and 7

Race 4: 1 and 2

Race 5: 4, 5 and 6

Race 6: 1 and 6

Race 7: 6 (Best Bet) and 5

Race 8: 1 and 2

Race 9: 5, 4 and 9



“Mash” Is A Monster At Fairgrounds (1/21/12)

Jan 21st, 2012 | By | Category: Today's Picks

Fast and good for the Saturday card — a very competitive card to handicap and a welcome challenge given Aqueduct’s cancellation today.

In race 10, Flash Mash (#10) steps up off two local turf sprint wins and can beat these with another stalking trip at decent odds — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 5 and 1

In race 11, The Grade 3 LeComte, Mr. Bowling (#4) prefers two turns and can sit a good trip from cozy post — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 11 and 2.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 3 and 5

Race 2: 1, 2 and 6

Race 3: 7, 10 and 4

Race 4: 3 and 5

Race 5: 2, 3 and 10

Race 6: 2 and 6

Race 7: 1 and 7

Race 8: 5 with 2 and 1

Race 9: 9 with 4 and 1

Race 10: 10 (Best Bet) with 5 and 1

Race 11: 4 (Best Bet) with 11 and 2

Race 12: 7 with 4 and 3

Race 13: 8, 12 and 2



Confetti For “Cozzetti” At Gulfstream (1/21/12)

Jan 21st, 2012 | By | Category: Today's Picks

Fast and firm for the Saturday card — have been picking more winners on top the last few weeks and had a couple of flat bet profits, so maybe the trend can continue this weekend.

In race 10, The Kitten’s Joy, Cozzetti (#6) gets back on turf and may show more speed in fairly paceless race, decent post does the trick with Leparoux at 5-1.  Key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 4 and 5.

In race 6, Z Camelot (#2) ran great in first turf start despite difficult trip and a slight move forward today wins this — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 10 and 3.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 1A and 6

Race 2: 7 and 1A

Race 3: 5 with 8 and 3

Race 4: 3 with 7 and 2

Race 5: 12 with 2 and 3

Race 6: 2 (Best Bet) with 10 and 3
