In race 8, The Grade 2 Sheepshead Bay, Aruna (#5) had no chance in comeback at Keeneland and gets a better pace setup and soft turf — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 7 and 6.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Being “Accountable” At Belmont (5/20/12)

May 20th, 2012 | By | Category: Belmont, Today's Picks

Fast and firm for the Sunday card — had a great day yesterday when I listed 7 winners, 5 on top, and had a nice flat bet profit.  Wish I could say the same thing for the Preakness card, with only one winner on top and several bad trips leading to a day to forget, so let’s see how I do today.

In race 8, Unaccountable (#1A) is part of a strong entry and is as consistent as they come on turf — likes local course and will appreciate the cut back for strong first out trainer.  Key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 8 and 2.

In race 9, Concert Stage (#3) goes second time off the layoff and has speed in a turf race lacking lots of that commodity — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 6 and 2.  Here’s the entire card without scratches and good luck!

Race 1: 7 and 2

Race 2: 4, 3 and 2

Race 3: 4, 3 and 9

Race 4: 1 and 3

Race 5: 3, 7 and 5

Race 6: 4, 8 and 5

Race 7: 6, 4 and 9

Race 8: 1A (Best Bet) with 8 and 2

Race 9: 3 (Best Bet) with 6 and 2

Race 10: 10, 7 and 1



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

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!
