Game On For “Dude” On Breeders Cup Friday (11/1/13)

Oct 31st, 2013 | By | Category: Breeders Cup, Today's Picks

Fast and firm for Day 1 of Breeders Cup 2013 at Santa Anita — an unbelievable day of racing with 11 fantastic races, including 5 Cup races (6-10) which culminate with the Distaff.  Over the next two days, handicappers will be stretched to the limit to navigate some very difficult races, but it is so worth it! So good luck to everyone, but don’t forget about the other races on the card that might be offering some good value!

In race 2, Wild Dude (#13) gets great stalking post and lots of speed to set up late run — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 9 and 11.

In race 8, The Grade 1 BC Dirt Mile, Golden Ticket (#2) is the right value play in a race packed with speed and a ground saving post with Rosario staying close enough to get up late — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 11 and 3.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 11 with 6  and 8

Race 2: 13 (Best Bet) with 9 and 11

Race 3: 8, 7 and 1

Race 4: 7, 2 and 6

Race 5: 7, 12 and 2

“Jules” Has Value At Santa Anita (10/27/13)

Oct 27th, 2013 | By | Category: Today's Picks

Fast and firm for the Sunday card — listed some nice winners yesterday, but none on top, so hope to be better leading up to the Breeders Cup today.  In race 4, Jules Journey (#4) loves a mile on turf and should get a perfect stalk and pounce journey here — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 7 and 8.

In race 5, Blue Tone (#6) might sit the garden trip behind the speed and run these down late — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #5.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 2, 1 and 7

Race 2: 1 and 2

Race 3: 3 with 4 and 7

Race 4: 4 (Best Bet) with 7 and 8

Race 5: 6 (Best Bet) and 5

Race 6: 11 with 9 and 3

Race 7: 5, 8 and 7

Race 8: 5, 9 and 7

Race 9: 9, 1 and 6



The Right “One” At Belmont (10/27/13)

Oct 27th, 2013 | By | Category: Belmont, Today's Picks

Fast and firm for the final card of the fall meet at Belmont — had a great day yesterday with 5 winners on top and listed a $630 double as well.  My 10-1 shot on top was also the only horse covered in the pick 6 which someone hit for over $500,000.  Looking forward to the Breeders Cup next week!

In race 6, Duff One (#3) has been facing some good ones and the cut back to a flat mile on the turf might be the ticket today — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 9 and 12.

In race 1, Great Minds (#10) ran his eyeballs out in debut and should move forward today — key in all early multi-race wagers and play an exacta box with #’s 1 and 8.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 10 (Best Bet) with 1 and 8

Race 2: 6, 8 and 5

Race 3: 2 with 6 and 7

Race 4: 1, 3 and 4

Race 5: 1 with 5 and 2

Race 6: 3 (Best Bet) with 9 and 12

Race 7: 2, 1 and 7

Race 8: 7, 8 and 1

Race 9: 3, 6 and 11



A Ringing “Endorsement” At Santa Anita (10/26/13)

Oct 26th, 2013 | By | Category: Today's Picks

Fast and firm for the Saturday card — trying to get a head start on handicapping for the Breeders Cup, so I thought I would handicap this weekend, so let’s see how I do.

In race 3, Endorsement (#4) cuts back to turf sprint and gets major class relief against these — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #5.

In race 8, Oscar Party (#5) gets back to favorite surface and a mile seems perfect — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 9 and 11.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 4, 5 and 8

Race 2: 6, 9 and 4

Race 3: 4 (Best Bet) and 5

Race 4: 6, 8 and 5

Race 5: 6, 4 and 2

Race 6: 3, 4 and 6

Race 7: 7, 6 and 9

Race 8: 5 (Best Bet) with 9 and 11

Race 9: 3, 10 and 7
