Making “Hey” At Gulfstream (3/15/14)

Mar 15th, 2014 | By | Category: Today's Picks

Fast and firm for the Saturday card — another competitive and interesting card to handicap, so let’s see how I do!

In race 6, Hey Leroy (#10) goes from tricky post, but has the speed to overcome it and can win from on the lead or just off a moderate pace — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 5 and 6.

In race 4, Zinzay (#9) has looked promising in 2 starts and can win this with another move forward — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 7 and 5.

At Oaklawn, a big day of graded stakes.  Here are my selections with best bets in bold — Race 1: 9 with 7 and 3; Race 2: 4 with 5 and 8; Race 3: 7, 6 and 4; Race 4: 6 with 12 and 8; Race 5: 5 with 7 and 1; Race 6: 2 with 4 and 3; Race 7: 10, 2 and 9; Race 8: 7 and 1; Race 9: 6 with 1 and 5; Race 10: 8 with 2 and 5; Race 11: 3 with 6 and 9.

Here’s the entire card at Gulfstream and good luck!

Leaning “Sideways” At Aqueduct (3/15/14)

Mar 15th, 2014 | By | Category: Aqueduct, Today's Picks

Clear and fast for the horrible Saturday card — short fields and a possible speed bias is making me concentrate more out of town, but I will handicap anyway!

In race 4, Sideways Vision (#2) gets cozy inside post and should have a perfect trip from just off the pace — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 3 and 5.

In race 3, Hackleton (#2) is the main speed stretching out and can wire these at a decent price — 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: 3 and 2

Race 2: 5 with 6 and 2

Race 3: 2 (Best Bet) and 5

Race 4: 2 (Best Bet) with 3 and 5
