A Winner Around The “Bend” At Belmont (6/30/12

Jun 30th, 2012 | By | Category: Belmont, Today's Picks

Fast and firm on an incredibly hot day at Belmont for the Saturday card.  Keep an eye out for a speed favoring bias, especially on the rock hard inner turf course.

In race 11, Beckham Bend (#9) stretches back out after good return and should get a perfect trip just off the suspect speeds and score today — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 5 and 4.

In race 4, Cure (#5) could get a dream trip just off a speed duel and get first run on the closers — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 3 and 1.  Here’s the entire card without scratches so check back closer to post time for possible changes.

Race 1: 1 with 9 and 11

Race 2: 4 and 3

Race 3: 3 with 1 and 8

Race 4: 5 (Best Bet) with 3 and 1

Race 5: 6, 2 and 4

Feeling The “Pinch” At Monmouth (6/30/12)

Jun 30th, 2012 | By | Category: Monmouth, Today's Picks

Fast and firm for the Saturday card.  I was handicapping great at Monmouth until a few weeks ago, so I will try and survive the heat today!

In race 11, The Grade 3 Eatontown Handicap, Pinch Pie (#10) goes second off the layoff and rallied into a slow pace last time — goes for great connections and gets the fast pace today.  Key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 2 and 8.

In race 10, R Gypsy Gold (#3) is working well for return and ran lights out on local surface in only start — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 10 and 1.

In race 5, Precious Paula (#3) is the absolute speed and should wire these in this spot — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #4.  Here’s the entire card without scratches so check back near post time for any changes.

Race 1: 3 and 2

Race 2: 6 with 7 and 2

Race 3: 2 and 5

Race 4: 2 with 7 and 6

Race 5: 3 (Best Bet) and 4

Didn’t have such a great day at Monmouth yesterday so I decided to handicap the Woodbine card with several stakes races, including the Queen’s Plate.

In race 10, The Queen’s Plate, Golden Ridge (#7) has fired every time and still has more to show us — 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!

Get Offensive With “De” At Belmont (6/24/12)

Jun 24th, 2012 | By | Category: Belmont, Today's Picks

Fazt and good for the Sunday card with race 10 off the turf.  Didn’t have a great day yesterday so let’s move quickly to today’s races.

In race 4, Decennial (#8) gets the best turf rider in the country and loves the local surface — gets enough pace to set up late run in second start off the layoff and will be a good price.  Key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 6 and 3.

In race 6, Medolina (#6) has been perfect in two starts and anything resembling his two starts on turf will get this done at a short price — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 4 and 1X.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 6 and 5

Race 2: 1 and 6

Race 3: 9 (Best Bet) with 1 and 4

Race 4: 8 (Best Bet) with 6 and 3

Race 5: 9, 12 and 5
