Taking My “Q” At Belmont (5/30/16)

May 30th, 2016 | By | Category: Belmont, Today's Picks

Sloppy and yielding for the Memorial Day card with races 1, 5 and 10 off the turf.  Listed the $1500 early pick 4 yesterday, but had only two winners on top, so I will try and do better today.  Historically, I have always had a good day on this card, but that was when the Metropolitan Mile was run on this date, so let’s see how I do today!

In race 4, Quezon (#5) loves it wet and should get a nice stalking trip and run these down late if the track is playing fair — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 4 and 1.

In race 7, Kharafa (#2) had useful comeback sprint and now gets a yielding course and a contested pace to set up late run at a decent price — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 1 and 6.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 4, 3 and 1A

Race 2: 6, 4 and 5

Race 3: 4 with 7 and 6

Race 4: 5 (Best Bet) with 4 and 1

Race 5: 15, 6 and 12

Race 6: 5, 1 and 7

Race 7: 2 (Best Bet) with 1 and 6

Race 8: 1, 2 and 5

Race 9: 4 with 2 and 9

Race 10: 12, 16 and 11

May 29th, 2016 | By | Category: Belmont, Today's Picks

Fast and firm for the Sunday card — only two winners on top yesterday, so let’s see if we can do better today.  Memorial Day tomorrow looks like a washout so enjoy the sunshine while it lasts!

In race 6, Front (#7) needed last, claimed by Jacobson who immediately cuts him back to shortest distance in career and gets a fast pace here — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 8 and 5.

In race 7, Forever for Always (#4) ran best two races at this distance on this turf course and had a useful comeback for this — will be a huge price.  Play across the board, key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 2 and 1.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 3, 4 and 5

Race 2: 7, 6 and 5

Race 3: 7, 5 and 4

Race 4: 1, 3 and 8

Race 5: 4, 2 and 1

May 28th, 2016 | By | Category: Belmont, Today's Picks

Fast and firm for the Saturday card — not having any strong opinions on most of the races, so lets’s see how I do today.

In race 7, Hello Don Julio (#5) has run against better and should get a contested pace to set up late run today — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 7 and 8.

In race 2, Slapstick (#7) clearly needed last and should move forward today if repeating first two starts — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 5 and 3.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 4, 6 and 2

Race 2: 7 (Best Bet) with 5 and 3

Race 3: 6, 7 and 2

Race 4: 1A and 3

Race 5: 7 with 4 and 9

A “Dazzlng” Day At Pimlico (5/21/16)

May 21st, 2016 | By | Category: Today's Picks, Triple Crown

Sloppy and good for Preakness Day — had a great day yesterday with 5 winners on top, including the Black Eyed Susan, but today will be difficult because of the rain and possible switch of some turf races, so please check back during the day if they do make big changes!

In race 11, Dazzling Gem (#7) made wide move in Arkansas Derby and ran out of gas late — should get a much better trip today and is bred to like it wet!  Key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 6 and 5.

In race 5, The Grade 3 Maryland Sprint, Cinco Charlie (#4) is the main speed here, likes it wet and should wire these as the second choice.  Key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 3 and 7.

In race 12, The Grade 2 Dixie, Takeover Target (#4) loves a soft turf course and may be on or just off a slow pace and win this at a decent price — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 7 and 11.

In race 13, The Grade 1 Preakness Stakes, Exaggerator (#5) moves way up on a wet track and the pace will be fast today to set up late run and will be a much better price than Nyquist – key in all exactas, tris and superfectas with #’s 3, 1 and 7.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 2, 6 and 3

Race 2: 2, 5 and 1

Race 3: 3 with 2 and 9
