It’s “Miller” Time At Belmont (9/19/15)

Sep 19th, 2015 | By | Category: Belmont, Today's Picks

Fast and firm for the Saturday card — it’s been very dry in NY so it seems that speed is holding more on both the main track and the turf courses, so play accordingly!

In race 2, Mack Miller (#7) is the main speed in a paceless mile affair — would love to get 2-key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #1.

In race 4, Sheriffa (#4) should also have an easy time on the front end and take these all the way — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 2 and 8.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 5, 6 and 8

Race 2: 7 (Best Bet) and 1

Race 3: 12, 3 and 9

Race 4: 4 (Best Bet) with 2 and 8

Race 5: 9, 2 and 4

Race 6: 8, 1 and 7

Race 7: 3 with 10 and 4

Race 8: 4, 1 and 7

Race 9: 2, 5 and 3

Race 10: 11, 9 and 3



Getting “Screwed” At Parx (9/19/15)

Sep 19th, 2015 | By | Category: Today's Picks

Fast and firm for the Pennsylvania Derby card — thought I would take a chance on handicapping today, so let’s see how I do.

In race 2, Screwgie (#3) had great debut on turf for expert grass conditioner and should only move forward against these — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s5 and 10.

In race 11, Fly Bye Pomeroy (#9) needed last and switches back to best surface — should get a perfect stalking trip.  Key in all late multi-race wagers and play an exacta box with #’s 8 and 5.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 7, 6 and 5

Race 2: 3 (Best Bet) with 5 and 10

Race 3: 4, 8 and 1

Race 4: 4, 1 and 6

Race 5: 7, 4 and 3

Race 6: 1, 5 and 3

Race 7: 7 with 2 and 6

Race 8: 6, 7 and 8

Race 9: 8 with 7 and 10

Race 10: 5, 9 and 3

Race 11: 9 (Best Bet) with 8 and 5



“Kidding Around” At Belmont (9/12/15)

Sep 12th, 2015 | By | Category: Belmont, Today's Picks

Fast and good for the Saturday card at Belmont — going to miss Saratoga because even though it’s a handicapping nightmare, it is the best racing in the country.  However, the fall meet at Belmont is pretty good as well, so let’s see how I do today!

In race 5, Media Kid (#2) has run well on local sod, on less than firm turf and was claimed by sharp connections — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 4 and 5.

In race 8, Boston Strong (#8) had brutal trip in two turn mile at Saratoga and should relish one turn sprint on a course he likes — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 9 and 6.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 4, 2 and 6

Race 2: 8, 5 and 1

Race 3: 3 and 1

Race 4: 1, 7 and 3

Race 5; 2 (Best Bet) with 4 and 5

Race 6: 5, 6 and 3

Race 7: 5, 10 and 2

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

Race 9: 2, 9 and 11

Race 10: 5, 3 and 9



Shooting Off A “Rocket” At Saratoga (9/7/15)

Sep 7th, 2015 | By | Category: Saratoga, Today's Picks

Fast and firm for getaway day at The Spa — a very challenging card to cap off a very difficult Saratoga meet, so let’s see how I do today with a huge pick 6 carryover.

In race 11, Kitzys Rocket (#2) goes for very hot connections and should get a perfect stalking trip from cozy post and run them down late — key in all late multi-race wagers and play an exacta box with #’s 5 and 4.

In race 10, The Grade 1 Hopeful, Sallisaw (#2) showed a professional stalking gear in maiden victory, but wasn’t far off the pace and may be first jump on the field at the top of the stretch — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 4 and 7.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 5, 3 and 4

Race 2: 5, 7 and 1

Race 3: 8, 10 and 3

Race 4: 3, 1 and 5

Race 5: 4, 3 and 1
