Fast and good for the Saturday card — finally, a great card featuring the Grade 1 Cigar Mile and other great supporting races, so let’s see if we can light it up today!

In race 8, The Grade 1 Cigar Mile, Flat Out (#9) cuts back to one turn after no chance bias in BC Classic and gets a great stalking post to ensure a great trip — taken to post a mild upset here.  Key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box wqith #’s 2 and 6.

In race 4, Mr. Algebra (#10) finally broke through in last and does best running on non-firm turf — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 8 and 6.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Finding The “Culprit” At Churchill (11/30/13)

Nov 30th, 2013 | By | Category: Churchill, Today's Picks

Fast and good for the Saturday card — have been scalding hot a Churchill during the fall meet and yesterday was no exception with 5 winners on top.  Tough to get a handle on the card today with all 2-year-old races, but prices will be good, so let’s see how I do.

In race 11, The Grade 2 Kentucky Jockey Club, Culprit (#2) has shown a good stalking gear in 3 starts and should love the added ground — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 4 and 5.

In race 9, The Grade 2 Golden Rod, Naive Enough (#2) is a Laurel invader who gets a cozy inside post and has looked good in last two — will be a good price and can win this if repeats last.  Key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 10 and 9.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 5 with 2 and 4

Race 2: 7, 11 and 9

Race 3: 3, 7 and 1

Race 4: 10, 6 and 7

Race 5: 8, 1 and 6

In race 10, Marchwood (#9) is the in-form closer in a race packed with speed — good stalking post to set up late run.  Key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 6 and 10.

In race 11, The Grade 1 Clark Handicap, Will Take Charge (#7) may end up being the best three-year old in 2013 and showed it by closing against the bias in the Classic to just miss — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 4 and 3.

In race 12, Derheart (#4) needed last at Keeneland and gets back on preferred surface for great Churchill connections — key in all late multi-race wagers and play an exacta box with #’s 8 and 3.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!
