Pick Six Within “Range” At Saratoga (7/22/12)

Jul 22nd, 2012 | By | Category: Saratoga, Today's Picks

Fast and firm for the Sunday card with a $280,000 pick six carryover waiting for you today.  The first few days have been brutal to handicap, but I’ve held my own with only a small flat bet loss from 5 for 21.  My exacta boxes are still very profitable so keep that in mind as you play today.  Also, see my pick six ticket!

In race 5, Rangey (#5) gets the benefit of the scratch of #7 and can stalk a control pace and get first run on the favorite (#11).  Key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #11.

In race 9, The Grade 2 Sanford, Rose Junction (#5) looked like a good one in debut and should sit right off a swift pace and take this.  Key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 6 and 1.

In the pick 6 (races 5-10), here’s the ticket:  Race 5: 5, Race 6: 9, 3 and 4, Race 7: 6 and 8, Race 8: 2 and 8, Race 9: 5, Race 10: 9, 11 and 12.  Total Bet: $72.  If you want to expand, add #11 in Race 5, total bet is $144.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 9, 8 and 3

Race 2: 7 and 6

Race 3: 8, 7 and 5

Race 4: 8, 6 and 1A

Feeling “Royal” At Saratoga (7/21/12)

Jul 21st, 2012 | By | Category: Saratoga, Today's Picks

Fast and firm — they are off and running at Saratoga!  Had a great opening day when I listed 6 winners, 3 on top (including a 3-1 shot in race 7), and had a great flat bet profit on exacta and triple boxes in races where I listed 3 horses.  Since it’s hard to pick winners on top at Saratoga, check out the exacta box bet which has been profitable in years past as well as opening day! Let’s see how I do on this difficult Saturday card!

In race 6, Kris Royal (#4) ran great in synthetic debut and is beautifully bred for the turf — his connections do well together at decent prices.  Key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 6 and 7.

In race 8, Colonel Bill (#11) has run well in 4 turf starts, has faced better and was claimed by a sneaky good trainer who reaches out for Leparoux who has had success riding for this barn — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 13 and 2.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 4, 5 and 7

Race 2: 3, 1 and 6

Race 3: 3, 5 and 6

Race 4: 12, 8 and 11

Race 5: 12, 11 and 2

Race 6: 4 (Best Bet) with 6 and 7

Race 7: 9, 5 and 6

Race 8: 11 (Best Bet) with 13 and 2

Race 9: 3, 7 and 1

Race 10: 6 and 5

Race 11: 3, 14 and 9

Jul 20th, 2012 | By | Category: Saratoga, Today's Picks

Fast and firm for the Friday card — so excited to be back handicapping at The Spa, the most challenging meet in the country.  Trying to pick a winner is not for the faint of heart, but I’ve done pretty well the last 3 years on my site so let’s see if I can get a fast start this year!

In race 7, Cosmic Energy (#2) was victimized by a slow pace in last at Belmont and will get a more contested pace to run at from a ground saving post — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 7 and 11.

In race 10, Way of the West (#4) has a win early turf sire and great connections for turf sprints — works say ready at a decent price.  Key in all late multi-race wagers and play an exacta box with #’s 7 and 10.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 2 with 4 and 8

Race 2: 1, 2 and 12

Race 3: 3, 2 and 8

Race 4: 6 and 8

Race 5: 6, 2 and 1
