Taking The “Shackles” Off At Belmont (5/28/12)

May 28th, 2012 | By | Category: Belmont, Today's Picks

Fast and firm for the Memorial Day card — one of my favorite handicapping days of the year because I have been historically hot for some reason in the past on this day, so let’s see if I can continue that trend today.

In race 10, The Grade 1 Metropolitan Handicap, Shackleford (#2) might be the right value play if the track is favoring speed and Saginaw (#4) doesn’t go crazy early — key up and down with #’s 6 and 1 and single in pick 3 and pick 4.

In race 5, Ornelia (#11) cuts back to turf sprint and gets the best rider in the country — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 3 and 5.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 9 and 6

Race 2: 4 and 1

Race 3: 4, 7 and 2

Race 4: 4, 8 and 11

Race 5: 11 (Best Bet) with 3 and 5

Race 6: 6 with 9 and 1

Race 7: 5 and 3

Race 8: 4 and 2

Race 9: 3 and 1

Race 10: 2 (Best Bet) with 6 and 1

Race 11: 1, 12 and 5
