Being “Ruthless” At Churchill (4/28/12)

Apr 28th, 2012 | By | Category: Churchill, Today's Picks

Fast and firm the opening day at Churcill — only one week to the Derby and the excitement is building, so let’s see how I do today.

In race 10, Ruthless Empire (#2) had no shot in second turf start trying to close into a dawdling pace and his figures give him a big shot with a more contested pace in the cards — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 10 and 8.

In race 8, The Grade 3 Derby Trial, Hierro (#5) had big figure win at 7 furlongs on this track and has been working well on local surface and gets the right pace flow — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 10 and 11.  Here’s the entire card now with scratches! — post time is at 6pm so I may make some changes later when scratches are announced so play accordingly!

Race 1: 5 (Best Bet) and 4

Race 2: 5 and 1

Race 3: 4, 3 and 5

Race 4: 6 with 3 and 5

Race 5: 2, 1 and 5

Race 7: 2, 3 and 6

Race 8: 5 (Best Bet) with 10 and 11

Race 9: 4 and 6

Race 10: 2 (Best Bet) with 10 and 8

Race 11:  7 with 9 and 2
