“Lassie” Gets Home At Belmont (5/19/12)

May 19th, 2012 | By | Category: Belmont, Today's Picks

Fast and firm for the Saturday card — had a great day yesterday when I listed 7 winners, 3 on top, including a $42 horse in race 7 and the late pick 4 which paid $5500 for a $162 wager.  Let’s see if I can keep up the momentum today.

In race 8, Scat’s Lassie (#1) goes for a good layoff trainer and gets back with state breds and has more potential than these — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 8 and 6.

In race 2, Wild Target (#5) had great numbers on the inner track and gets a good pace set-up today — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 3 and 4.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 5 with 3 and 11

Race 2: 5 (Best Bet) with 3 and 4

Race 3: 8, 9 and 7

Race 4: 5 and 6

Race 5: 10, 3 and 7

Race 6: 5 and 1

Race 7: 9 with 1 and 5

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

Race 9: 3 and 2

Race 10: 3, 8 and 2



“Rocket” Is The Man On Preakness Day At Pimlico (5/19)

May 19th, 2012 | By | Category: Today's Picks, Triple Crown

Fast and firm for the Preakness Day card at Pimlico — listed 8 winners yesterday, including 4 on top, but couldn’t get a big one to pop so I will try again today.

In race 6, Laurie’s Rocket (#4) is a different horse sprinting and can get a dream trip behind the speed and run them down late as the third choice — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #8.

In race 3, The Grade 3 Gallorette Handicap, Laughing (#7) had a great return race and can stalk a slow pace and get first run on the closers — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #2.

In race 9, Easy Crossing (#1) had done little wrong in 3 turf starts, gets a cozy post and has good positional speed to sit a winning trip — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 5 and 10 ( use 2 if scratches).

Looks like Bodemeister (#7) could wire these easily at a short price in the Preakness, so look for value in other races today.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 2, 3 and 6

Race 2: 7 and 4

Race 3: 7 (Best Bet) and 2

Race 4: 3 and 4

Race 5: 13, 11 and 6

Race 6: 4 (Best Bet) and 8

Race 7: 6, 7 and 2

Race 8: 8 with 1 and 4

Race 9: 1 (Best Bet) with 5 and 10 (use 2 if scratches)

Race 10: 9, 5 and 2

Race 11: 7 with 3 and 9

Race 12: 7 with 9, 6 and 5

Race 13: 1, 2 and 3
