Oct 27th, 2012 | By | Category: Belmont, Today's Picks

Fast and firm for the final Saturday of the Spring meet at Belmont — had a pretty good run with many winners on top and a flat bet profit for the meet.  Let’s see if I can close out strong.

In race 9, The grade 3 Bold Ruler, Buffum (#1) loves the local surface and can sit a nice stalking trip cutting back to 7 furlongs off the grade 2 stake — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 4 and 9.

In race 4, Ragal0 Mia (#4) has the best figures and always fires — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 6 and 2.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 5, 11 and 7

Race 2: 3 and 6

Race 3: 13, 15 and 3

Race 4: 4 (Best Bet) with 6 and 2

Race 5: 4 with 8 and 3

Fast and firm for the final day of the Fall Meet at Keeneland — it’s been a very competitive and difficult handicapping challenge every weekend, but I’m sad to see it end.  Let’s see if I can go out with a bang!

In race 9, The Grade 2 Fayette, Newsdad (#4) gets back on synthetic surface after chasing Grade 1 foes on the dirt and has won locally — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 5 and 1.

In race 3, Strike the Tiger (#3) returns to synthetic off a six month rest and two turf sprints — has hot connections in his corner and will be a nice price.  Key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 9 and 8.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 8, 6 and 2

Race 2: 4, 3 and 5

Fast and firm for the Saturday card at Keeneland — not the best card during this great meet, but the last few races are certainly worth betting.

In race 9, The Grade 2 Raven Run, Gypsy Robin (#11) is working bullets for this and is the absolute speed in a race with many route speed types cutting back — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 10 and 14.

In race 8, Cat Lore (#3) loves these turf sprints and always sits a good trip with tactical speed — 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: 6 with 1 and 2

Race 2: 1, 6 and 7

Race 3: 7 with 4 and 1

Race 4: 6, 7 and 5

Race 5: 6, 7 and 1
