A “Sly” Pick At Belmont (10/4/14)

Oct 4th, 2014 | By | Category: Belmont, Today's Picks

Sloppy and soft with only race 9 remaining on the turf.  Some good racing today despite the weather, so let’s see how I do today!

In race 5, Giant Fox (#9) is a main track only who will like the wet track and can close into a fast pace — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 10 and 3.

In race 6, The grade 1 Frizette, Wonder Gal (#2) may love the slop and had an excuse in last against Cavorting and is working like she will appreciate the flat mile — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 6 and 1.

In race 8, The Grade 1 Champagne, Upstart (#2) is a New York bred that has looked as professional as possible in first 2 starts and should love the slop — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 6 and 1.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 3, 11 and 10

Race 2: 3, 7 and 6

Race 3: 8, 11 and 6

Race 4: 1, 4 and 3

Race 5: 9 (Best Get) with 10 and 3

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

Race 7: 14 and 15

Race 8: 2 (Best Bet) with 6 and 1

Race 9: 1, 3 and 9

Race 10: 4 and 7

Race 11: 4, 11 and 5



“Better” Than The Rest At Keeneland (10/4/14)

Oct 4th, 2014 | By | Category: Keeneland, Today's Picks

Muddy and yielding for the Saturday card — an incredible betting card typical for the fall meet at Keeneland!  This is my first time handicapping with the new dirt track, so let’s see how it plays.

In race 7, The grade 1 First Lady, Better Lucky (#5) won this same race last year on yielding turf and loves the local surface — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 7 and 8.

In race 5, The grade 3 Woodford, Positive Side (#5) likes some give in the turf and gets a brutal pace to set up late run — 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: 7, 2 and 6

Race 2: 5, 6 and 1

Race 3: 7, 2 and 3

Race 4: 2, 9 and 4

Race 5: 5 (Best Bet) with 10 and 9

Race 6: 7, 5 and 2

Race 7: 5 (Best Bet) with 7 and 8

Race 8: 6, 10 and 5

Race 9: 5, 8 and 6

Race 10: 9, 4 and 7
