I’ve Got My Eye On “H” At Aqueduct (4/14/12)

Apr 14th, 2012 | By | Category: Today's Picks

Fast and firm for the competitive Saturday card — had a nice 4-1 best bet win yesterday, but I need to pick more winners on top today!

In race 9, Nicole H (#3) benefits for some key speed scratches and can get the jump on It’s Tricky (#7) — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #7.

In race 6, Dendrite (#8) likes local sod, had a good tightener here off a layoff and blinkers may improve positional speed — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 7 and 1.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 4 and 5

Race 2: 1 and 4

Race 3: 7, 6 and 5

Race 4: 4, 9 and 1

Race 5: 2, 7 and 9

Race 6: 8 (Best Bet) with 7 and 1

Race 7: 12, 8 and 3

Race 8: 2, 12 and 10

Race 9: 3 (Best Bet) 7

Race 10: 7, 4 and 12



Hoping It’s A “Dull” Day At Keeneland (4/14/12)

Apr 14th, 2012 | By | Category: Keeneland, Today's Picks

Fast and firm for Blue Grass day at Keeneland — had a great day yesterday with 5 listed winners, 4 on top, and a very hot stretch of exactas and triple boxes in races 5-8.  I hope to keep the momentum going today with a very difficult 12-race card.

In race 11, The Grade 1 Blue Grass, Dullahan (#6) had a useful turf tightener in comeback at Gulfstream, has won over local synthetic strip, is working well and gets a great pace scenario to set up late run — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 3 and 4.

In race 7, Putthebabiesdown (#1) is the class of this, has run well fresh and can sit close to a controlled pace and take over mid stretch — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 5 and 8.

In race 5, Check Your Soul (#11) goes for an excellent layoff trainer and will appreciate the extra distance on his preferred surface — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 1 and 4.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 11, 7 and 1

Race 2: 3 with 7 and 1

Race 3: 3, 9 and 1

Race 4: 6, 2 and 11

Race 5: 11 (Best Bet) with 1 and 4

Race 6: 3 with 10 and 8

Race 7: 1 (Best Bet) with 5 and 8

Race 8: 6 and 3

Race 9: 5 and 7

Race 10: 3, 4 and 1

Race 11: 6 (Best Bet) with 3 and 4
