“Godzilla” Is Scary At Aqueduct (4/6/12)

Apr 6th, 2012 | By | Category: Today's Picks

Fast and firm for the Friday card — thought I would handicap since it’s the day before the fabulous Wood card so let’s see if I can build some momentum for the weekend.

In race 3, Lunchwithgodzilla (#6) gets good attack post and can run down the speed late — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #5.

In race 7, Downtown Hottie (#4) gets back on best surface and picks up the services of the best turf rider in the country — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 3 and 6.  Here’s the entire card without scratches and good luck!

Race 1: 1 and 3

Race 2: 4 and 3

Race 3: 6 (Best Bet) and 5

Race 4: 6 and 2

Race 5: 6, 1 and 4

Race 6: 1, 7 and 6

Race 7: 4 (Best Bet) with 3 and 6

Race 8: 4 and 1

Race 9: 9, 11 and 5 (use 1 if scratches)



“Promising” Opening Day At Keeneland (4/6/12)

Apr 6th, 2012 | By | Category: Keeneland, Today's Picks

Fast and firm for opening day for the Spring meet in Lexington — I’ve always enjoyed handicapping at Keeneland given the quality of the racing, so let’s see how I do today.

In race 8, Noble’s Promise (#6) goes second off the layoff and gets back on preferred surface for this — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 2 and 9.

In race 4, Don’t Tell Sophia (#6) loves the local surface and has run well fresh before — price play at around 5-1.  Key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 7 and 3.  Here’s the entire card without scratches and good luck!

Race 1: 3, 1A and 8

Race 2: 9, 6 and 4

Race 3: 7 with 4 and 5

Race 4: 6 (Best Bet) with 7 and 3
