“Lawyer” Can Win At Belmont (9/21/14)

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

Muddy and yielding for the Sunday card with race 5 off the turf.  The weather should be ok today so look for the main track to be fast at some point.  Glad to be only handicapping Belmont today — I was very disappointed with the Parx card yesterday because a pronounced speed bias made my picks ineffective since I was looking for closers in races packed with speed.  I hope that great days of racing in the future aren’t spoiled because they decide to soup up the tracks on big days (are you listening in Breeders Cup land at Santa Anita!).  Anyway, let’s see how I do today.

In race 8, Lawyer Jim (#5) will appreciate coming back to Belmont and has the numbers to beat this kind — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 6 and 1.

In race 9, Missy Bay (#7) has run well on local turf and may get a decent pace to set up late run — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 8 and 1.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 2, 1 and 8

Race 2: 1, 4 and 5

Race 3: 5, 1 and 4

Race 4: 1 and 6

Race 5: 1, 13 and 5

Race 6: 1, 5 and 9

Race 7: 3, 8 and 4

Race 8: 5 (Best Bet) with 6 and 1

Race 9: 7 (Best Bet) 8 and 1

Race 10: 3, 1 and 8
