Going “Yard” At Saratoga (8/15/15)

Aug 15th, 2015 | By | Category: Belmont, Today's Picks

Fast and firm for the Saturday card — thunderstorms in the forecast, but all races are handicapped to remain on the turf.  Have listed a lot of winners the last two cards I handicapped, but not many winners on top, so I will try and do a little better today.

In race 7, Brickyard Kitten (#7) stretches out after two turf sprints and finds a field without much pace on paper — can take these all the way or win from just off a slow pace.  Key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with 3′s 1 and 2.

In race 10, The Grade 2 Fourstardave, Jack Milton (#8) cuts back to favorite distance on turf and can run these down late even if the pace isn’t so hot — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 1 and 4.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 7, 5 and 1

Race 2: 6 with 8 and 1

Race 3: 5, 1 and 4

Race 4: 7, 4 and 5

Race 5: 7 (Best Bet) with 1 and 2

Race 6: 7, 1 and 3

Race 7: 9, 5 and 7

Race 8: 10, 3 and 6

Race 9: 4 with 1 an 2

Race 10: 8 (Best Bet) with 1 and 4

Race 11: 3, 1 and 6



Feeling “Hyper” On Arlington Million Day (8/15/15)

Aug 15th, 2015 | By | Category: Today's Picks

Fast and firm for the big day of the meet — figure I would try to handicap one of the best cards of the year.

In race 7, The Grade 3 American St. Leger, Hyper (#7) hasn’t won in a long time, but has 3 races to draw on now after two year absence — should get a perfect stalking trip and hold off the closers for top turf connections.  Key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 6 and 2.

In race 6, The Grade 3 Pucker Up, Miss Chatelaine (#10) is the class of this field, but needs to be closer in a pace less affair to run down the leaders late — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 8 and 5.  Here is the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 9, 7 and 8

Race 2: 3, 4 and 2

Race 3: 1, 5 and 2

Race 4: 4, 8 and 3

Race 5: 3, 7 and 5

Race 6: 10 (Best Bet) with 8 and 5

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

Race 8: 7, 6 and 2

Race 9: 10, 8 and 6

Race 10: 10 with 1 and 4

Race 11: 6, 4 and 8
