“Naked” Looks Good At Belmont (6/26/16)

Jun 26th, 2016 | By | Category: Belmont, Today's Picks

Fastg and firm for the Sunday card — only one winner on top yesterday, but I did list the early pick 4 and pick 5 which paid over $6,000, so I will try and pick more winners on top today!

In race 9, Naked Empress (#5) cuts back to sprint and gets a very fast 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 7 and 4.

In race 5, Bust Another (#5) has a nice turf pedigree and should handle the surface and benefit from the hot pace — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 6 and 3.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 5 with 2 and 1

Race 2: 2, 1 and 4

Race 3: 4 with 5 and 6

Race 4: 3 with 4 and 7

Race 5: 5 (Best Bet) with 6 and 3

Race 6: 4 with 2 and 3

Race 7: 10, 7 and 4

Race 8: 2, 3 and 4

Race 9: 5 (Best Bet) 7 and 4

Race 10: 5, 4 and 8



Calling A Winner At Belmont (6/25/16)

Jun 25th, 2016 | By | Category: Belmont, Today's Picks

Fast and firm for the Saturday card — not been very consistent at the meet and this card doesn’t inspire me at all, so let’s see how I do anyway.

In race 4, Gio’s Calling (#4) may not be the best horse, but has good positional speed to lead or just be off a dawdling pace here and may get brave in the stretch at a decent price — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 1 and 6.

In race 9, The Grade 3 Bed O’ Roses, Bar of Gold (#3) should be prominent from the bell and may get a moderate pace and be able to hold off the closers late — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 4 and 2.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 2, 6 and 1

Race 2: 6, 4 and 8

Race 3: 7, 3 and 4

Race 4: 4 (Best Bet) with 1 and 6

Race 5: 2, 11 and 5

Race 6: 12, 7 and 8

Race 7: 1, 9 and 4

Race 8: 6, 4 and 5

Race 9: 3 (Best Bet) with 4 and 2

Race 10: 12, 5 and 16



Finding My “Type” At Belmont (6/19/16)

Jun 19th, 2016 | By | Category: Belmont, Today's Picks

Fast and firm for the Sunday card — only had two winners on top yesterday, but one was a $6.80 best bet and the other a $35 winner, so not a bad day overall, so let’s see how I do today.

In race 8, Tin Type Gal (#9) working well for top turf connections and may be a star in the making as she begins her 3-year-old campaign — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 7 and 1.

In race 7, Hirschbein (#8) has been the victim of slow fractions in two return races on turf, but gets a faster pace today and has the back numbers to win this at a price — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 3 and 4.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 6, 4 and 3

Race 2: 2, 8 and 6

Race 3: 7, 5 and 6

Race 4: 4, 6 and 2

Race 5: 11, 4 and 2

Race 6: 7, 5 and 12

Race 7: 8 (Best Bet) with 3 and 4

Race 8: 9 (Best Bet) with 7 and 1

Race 9: 5, 8 and 2

Fast and firm for the Saturday card — it’s taken me a whole week to shake off my handicapping failures on Belmont Day, so let’s see how I do today with this lackluster card.

In race 9, Street Shark (#3)  has run well locally and should sit right off the pace and have dead aim against his friends today — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 4 and 11.

In race 3, Rapid Rouge (#4) should move forward off last and gets enough pace to set up late run — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 6 and 7.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 6, 3 and 1

Race 2: 2, 7 and 3

Race 3: 4 (Best Bet) with 6 and 7

Race 4: 1 with 4 and 2

Race 5: 2, 5 and 7
