“Jest” Is Best At Belmont (5/31/14)

May 31st, 2014 | By | Category: Belmont, Today's Picks

Fast and firm for the Saturday card — a great day for NY breds and some good races on tap.  Had a very good weekend last week, so let’s see if I can keep it up today!

In race 10, Royal Jest (#12) cuts back to turf sprint and should get a great stalking trip from the outside post and have some bottom late — key in all late multi-race wagers and play an exacta box with 1 and 6.

In race 9, Readtheprospectus (#7) is working well for good layoff trainer and the flat mile over this track is his speciality — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 3 and 5.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 2, 10 and 8

Race 2: 4 with 8 and 1

Race 3: 2 with 6 and 5

Race 4: 7 and 5

Race 5: 9, 10 and 7

Race 6: 2, 9 and 6

Race 7: 5, 3 and 4

Race 8: 12 with 6 and 3

Race 9: 7 (Bet Bet) with 3 and 5

Race 10: 12 (Best Best) with 1 and 6



Here’s To “Lady” Luck At Belmont (5/26/14)

May 26th, 2014 | By | Category: Belmont, Today's Picks

Fast and firm for the Memorial Day card — had an incredible day yesterday when both best bets won, the 8th race winner paid $39 and highlighted a $2100 pick 4, so I will try and keep the momentum today.  Historically, I always do very well on Memorial Day, but the card is not great and they don’t run the Metropolitan, so the vibe is very different this year.  However, I am optimistic so let’s see how I do today.

In race 9, Lady Lanery (#2) has good positional speed in this turf event and gets lasix today — a winning angle for these connections.  Key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 8 and 5.

In race 7, Lawless Miss (#7) comes back off a layoff, but has run well fresh and gets a very contested pace to set up late run in this turf sprint.  Key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 1 and 8.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 4 and 5

Race 2: 3 and 6

Race 3: 5 and 7

Race 4: 3, 4 and 1

Race 5: 9, 10 and 1

Race 6: 6, 5 and 2

Race 7: 7 (Best Bet) with 1 and 8

Race 8: 1A and 5

Race 9: 2 (Best Bet) with 8 and 5

Race 10: 3, 4 and 12

 



Going To “Camp” At Belmont (5/25/14)

May 25th, 2014 | By | Category: Belmont, Today's Picks

Fast and good for the Sunday card — a sea of scratches yesterday when races came off the turf made the card unplayable — let’s see how the day goes today.  I have a history of having big days on Memorial Day, so make sure you check out my picks on Monday!

In race 4, Campogiovanni (#2) needed last and gets a much better post to sit a good trip (nonfirm turf is a plus as well) — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 7 and 8.

In race 8, Sea Queen (#3) steps up a bit, but can win from on or just off the pace and will be a decent price — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 5 and 1.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 3 and 4

Race 2: 5 and 4

Race 3: 6 and 4

Race 4: 2 (Best Bet) with 7 and 8

Race 5: 5 and 1

Race 6: 4 with 2 and 9

Race 7: 10, 9 and 2

Race 8: 3 (Best Bet) with 5 and 1

Race 9: 6, 10 and 8



“Here Comes” A Winner At Belmont (5/24/14)

May 24th, 2014 | By | Category: Belmont, Today's Picks

Good and yielding for the Saturday card with races 3, 5 and 7 off the turf.  Not the best card with all the scratches, but the rest of the weekend at Belmont looks good so let’s try and win some money!

In race 10, Here Comes Tommy (#9) may be 1 for 19, but always shows up and gets an ideal pace scenario to run these down late at a decent price — key in all late multi-race wagers and play an exacta box with #’s 3 and 7.

In race 8, Sinistra (#9) gets back on main track and the jockey change means this is the money run — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 3 and 8.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 2 and 1A

Race 2: 2 and 5

Race 3: 7 and 8

Race 4: 7 and 1

Race 5: 5 and 3

Race 6: 6, 3 and 1
