A Real “Bargain” At Belmont (6/29/14)

Jun 29th, 2014 | By | Category: Belmont, Today's Picks

Fast and firm for the Sunday card — had a decent day yesterday highlighted by my best bet running second in race 8 which was won by my second choice and resulted in a $100 plus exacta.  Not a great betting card today, but only a few weeks left until Saratoga!

In race 5, Bargaining Table (#4) should get a great stalking trip in this turf affair and always fires — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 6 and 8.

In race 7, Hear the Footsteps (#1) cuts back to turf sprint but should have enough speed to stay close enough to run down the leaders late — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 2 and 6.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 2 and 4

Race 2: 6, 5 and 4

Race 3: 5, 3 and 1

Race 4: 6, 10 and 5

Race 5: 4 (Best Bet) with 6 and 8

Race 6: 6 with 2 and 4

Race 7: 1 (Best Bet) with 2 and 6

Race 8: 3, 6 and 4

Race 9: 7, 8 and 10



The “Value Play” At Belmont (6/28/14)

Jun 28th, 2014 | By | Category: Belmont, Today's Picks

Fast and firm for the competitive Saturday card — been handicapping pretty well here over the past several weeks, so I will try and keep the momentum going today.

In race 8, Long On Value (#3) might have wanted turf all along and should be in a good stalking spot from inside post — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 7 and 8.

In race 10, Sneaky Kitten (#4) had good comeback effort and should be primed with the addition of blinkers to run these down late — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 10 and 6.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 5, 2 and 3

Race 2: 7 and 9

Race 3: 5 with 1 and 4

Race 4: 2

Race 5: 8, 1 and 5

Race 6: 10 with 5 and 1

Race 7: 4 with 7 and 2

Race 8: 3 (Best Bet) with 7 and 8

Race 9: 3, 2 and 1

Race 10: 4 (Best Bet) with 10 and 6



A Runner To “Count On” At Belmont (6/22/14)

Jun 22nd, 2014 | By | Category: Belmont, Today's Picks

Fast and firm for the Sunday card — had two nice winners on top for a flat bet profit, but had a tough beat in race 9 when my best bet got nipped at 5-1.  Oh well, today is another day, so let’s see how I do!

In race 9, Countknickerbocker (#2) goes second off the layoff and Rosario stays — may be the main speed from the hedge and will be a nice price.  Key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 6 and 8.

In race 8, Missy Bay (#1) stretches out second start back and should have a better closing kick with all the speed signed up — 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!

Race 1: 4 and 1

Race 2: 2, 4 and 1A

Race 3: 6 and 2

Race 4: 1A, 8 and 2

Race 5: 2 and 4

Race 6: 3, 4 and 8

Race 7: 2, 3 and 4

Race 8: 1 (Best Bet) with 11 and 4

Race 9: 2 (Best Bet) with 6 and 8



“Meadow” Is Green At Belmont (6/21/14)

Jun 21st, 2014 | By | Category: Belmont, Today's Picks

Fast and firm for the Saturday card — have been doing a good job over the last several weeks and last Sunday I listed a $13,000 pick 5, so let’ see how I do today.  Keep in mind that with the dry conditions over the last several days comes a potential speed bias on both the main track and the turf courses as they firm up, so be aware and play accordingly!

In race 9, The Grade 3 Bed O’ Roses Handicap, Merry Meadow (#8) loves the Belmont main track and showed a nice stalking run in return last time — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 10 and 11.

In race 7, Sweet Acclaim (#5) has the best figures and is probably the main speed in this turf event — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 3 and 2.

Race 1: 3 with 8 and 1

Race 2: 7 with 1 and 3

Race 3: 2 with 7 and 1

Race 4: 5, 9 and 3

Race 5: 9, 8 and 7

Race 6: 1 with 6 and 7

Race 7: 5 (Best Bet) with 3 and 2

Race 8: 7, 9 and 11

Race 9: 8 (Best Bet) with 10 and 11

Race 10: 4, 7 and 2
