Paying The “Bill” At Saratoga (9/25/16)

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

Fast and firm for the Sunday card — had a pretty good day yesterday with 4 winners on top, including my best bet who won at 5-2, so let’s try and keep it up today.

In race 2, Steamboat Bill (#3) gets cozy post and should get a perfect trip right behind Dendrite and get the first run on the closers — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacts box with #’s 8 and 7.

In race 8, Flipcup (#3) ran great in turf debut and has faced some good ones  — should like the extra ground here and the price should be decent.  Key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 5 and 2.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 4, 2 and 6

Race 2: 3 (Best Bet) with 8 and 1

Race 3: 4, 2 and 1

Race 4: 9, 4 and 8

Race 5: 7, 11 and 5

Race 6: 10, 2 and 12

Race 7: 8, 6 and 1

Race 8: 3 (Best Bet) with 5 and 2

Race 9: 3, 8 and 4



“Imposter” Is Real at Belmont (9/24/16)

Sep 24th, 2016 | By | Category: Belmont, Today's Picks

Muddy and good for the Saturday card with races 6 and 10 off the turf — however conditions may be improving at least for the main track so keep an eye out for how the track is playing.  Been listing a lot of winners lately, but not as many on top as I would like, so let’s see how I do today.

In race 9, The Imposter (#7) has been popular in the claim box and new connections are good with this angle and the cutback plus non firm turf add to the appeal today — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 5 and 1.

In race 8, The Grade 3 Noble Damsel, Stormy Victoria (#7) was victimized by slow pace in last but still ran great and should get a good trip and run down the leaders late — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 6 and 5.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 5, 1 and 6

Race 2: 7, 5 and 6

Race 3: 5, 6 and 4

Race 4: 4 with 6 and 5

Race 5: 5 with 3 and 1

Race 6: 9, 10 and 11

Race 7: 4, 1 and 2

Race 8: 7 (Best Bet) with 6 and 5

Race 9: 7 (Best Bet) with 5 and 1

Race 10: 6, 2 and 9



“Notorious” For Winning At Belmont (9/18/16)

Sep 18th, 2016 | By | Category: Belmont, Today's Picks

Fast and firm for the Sunday card — and it looks like the rain will hold off until later, so let’s hope for dry conditions today.  Had a 9-1 winner yesterday and my best bet at 12-1 ran 3rd after leading in midstretch, but not much else, so let’s see how I do today.

In race 7, Notorious (#2) draws the rail, but should get a perfect trip right behind the speed and open up in the stretch if he can navigate a good trip — trainer off to a good start here.  Key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 5 and 1A.

In race 1, Chubby Master (#5) got claimed by great trainer with first timers and will like the flat mile here and be the second choice — 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 1: 5 (Best Bet) with 2 and 7

Race 2: 5, 7 and 4

Race 3: 5 with 3 and 1

Race 4: 6, 12 and 13

Race 5: 12, 6 and 1

Race 6: 10, 4 and 6

Race 7: 2 (BestBet) with 5 and 1A

Race 8: 6, 4 and 7

Race 9: 9, 5 and 4



A “Giant” Day At Belmont (9/17/16)

Sep 17th, 2016 | By | Category: Belmont, Today's Picks

Fast and firm for the Saturday card — not a Saratoga card, but a decent handicapping card nevertheless, so let’s see how I do today.

In race 8, West Hills Giant (#8) gets back with statebreds and has been sprinting well on this track — meets a lot of turnbacks and can stay close to the pace and get first run here.  Key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 4 and 9.

In race 4, Vision Perfect (#6) likes the local sod and should be forwardly placed in a race without much pace and will always be a decent price — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 5 and 1.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 4, 5 and 1

Race 2: 6, 1 and 2

Race 3: 5, 1 and 2

Race 4: 6 (Best Bet) with 5 and 1

Race 5: 6, 8 and 3

Race 6: 8, 4 and 9

Race 7: 1, 8 and 7

Race 8: 8 (Best Bet) with 4 and 9

Race 9: 2, 5 and 6

Race 10: 5, 4 and 7
