Raising The “Bar” At Belmont (5/31/15)

May 31st, 2015 | By | Category: Belmont, Today's Picks

Fast and firm for the Sunday card — only 2 winners on top yesterday, so I will try and do better today!  Only 6 days left until the Belmont!

In race 8, Bartiromo (#2) claimed by smart connections and they immediately step her back up and her back numbers make her the one to beat at a perfect distance on turf — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 4 and 1.

In race 3, Striking Style (#4) needed last and has run well on the local sod and should get the distance — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 9 and 7.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 1, 6 and 5

Race 2: 11, 5 and 10

Race 3: 4 (Best Bet) with 9 and 7

Race 4: 1 and 6

Race 5: 3, 11 and 6

Race 6: 3, 7 and 6

Race 7: 4 with 6 and 7

Fast and firm for the Saturday card — only one week away from one of the best cards in the history of NY racing, so I will try and build momentum today!

In race 9, Made  in Detroit (#7) is not the best horse in this turf stakes affair, but may steal this on the front end without much pace signed on — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 4 and 1A.

In race 2, Clothes Fall Off (#2) had useful return in last and should get up in time against these — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 1 and 4.  Here’s the entire card with special good wishes to David Prine and Kate Quigley who have horses running today.

May 25th, 2015 | By | Category: Belmont, Today's Picks

In race 9, The Critical Eye, Hot Stones (#9) needed last off the layoff and should sit a perfect stalking trip on speed favoring oval — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 2 and 7.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 2: 2, 6 and 1
