“Orb” & “Revolutionary” Complete My Derby Daily Double (3/31/13)

Mar 31st, 2013 | By | Category: Today's Picks

Just wanted to toot my own horn for a moment.  Picked both winners in the Florida and Louisiana Derby and went 11 for 36 combined at the 3 tracks I handicapped yesterday (including Aqueduct).  I even ended the card at Gulfstream by picking the late pick 3 cold and listed the late $380 double at The Fairgrounds.

Take a look at my record for the big races during the year and I continue to hold my own against the best handicappers in the country.  The Breeders Cup Classic is a perfect example — including 9-1 Fort Larned last year.  Hopefully that trend continues next week at Aqueduct for the Wood Memorial and down the road at Churchill the first Saturday in May.

Taking the day off today — happy holidays to all my readers!



“Take Charge” At Gulfstream (3/30/13)

Fast and firm for the Florida Derby card — great racing today and I highly recommend the betting at this track!

In race 10, The Grade 3 Skip Away, Take Charge Indy (#8) goes second off the layoff and should be the main speed in this relatively paceless affair — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 3 and 10.

In race 8, The Grade 2 Gulfstream Oaks, Emollient (#6) gets a dream pace set-up today — has run well locally and is proven at the distance.  Key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 4 and 3.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

In race 8, The Grade 2 New Orleans Handicap, Bourbon Courage (#2) is 2 for 2 on the local course and can sit a good stalking trip right off the speed and win this a better than 3-1 — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 8 and 1.

In race 9, The Grade 2 Louisiana Derby, Revolutionary (#3) ran his eyeballs out in Withers and can be any kind if gets a clean trip — 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!

In race 7, Christopher’s Joy (#1) may be the main speed from the rail and can wire these with an alert start — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 11 and 4.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!
