“Preachin” A Winner At Belmont (9/30/12)

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

Fast and yielding for the Sunday card at Belmont with races 4 and 10 off the turf — a great day of racing on Super Saturday which is always good for the sport.  I even listed the all Grade 1 pick 4 and my best bet of the day (Nahrain) won at 5-1. However, that was my only winner on top, so I will try and do better today.

In race 4, Preachintothedevil (#16) got the cobwebs out at Saratoga and got claimed by crafty outfit and Dominguez rides — off the turf and into the winner’s circle.  Key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 13 and 9.

In race 8, Scenario Analysis (#3) cuts back to 7 furlongs and likes soft turf — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 2 and 11. Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 10 with 1 and 2

Race 2: 3 with 5 and 1

Race 3: 3 and 8

Race 4: 16 (Best Bet) with 13 and 9

Race 5: 4 with 3 and 7

Race 6: 6, 4 and 7

Race 7: 6 and 5

Race 8: 3 (Best Bet) with 2 and 11

Race 9: 4, 1 and 2

Race 10: 15, 1 and 8

In race 8, The Grade 1 Flower Bowl, Nahrain (#8) is rounding into form and will appreciate a stalking trip and non-firm turf today — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 1 and 4.

In race 10, The Grade 1 Jockey Club Gold Cup, Hymn Book (#4) will appreciate any moisture in the track and the extra distance at a track he’s run well at in the past and a bullet work in the holster — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 9 and 5.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 16, 12 and 1

Race 2: 5, 7 and 9

Race 3: 4, 8 and 9

Race 4: 13, 15 and 12
