“Just” In Time At Gulfstream (2/26/17)

Feb 26th, 2017 | By | Category: gulfstream, Today's Picks

Fast and firm for the Sunday card — a frustrating day yesterday when despite listing 10 winners my best bets were not profitable and only managed 2 winners on top, so I will try and bounce back today, although this card is subpar for Gulfstream.

In race 12, Just Howard (#1) took to turf in last, gets cozy post and a great turf rider — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 7 and 3.

In race 13, Durocher (#9) has best figure in last and should sit a good stalking spot and break through today — key in all late multi-race wagers and play an exacta box with #’s 3 and 5.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 6, 9 and 5

Race 2: 6, 3 and 5

Race 3: 6, 8 and 3

Race 4: 6, 3 and 4

Race 5: 5, 4 and 7

Race 6: 1, 2 and 3

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

Race 8: 1 (Best Bet) with 3 and 6

Race 9: 1 with 5 and 8

Race 10: 1, 6 and 2

Race 11: 4, 3 and 2

Race 12: 1 (Best Bet) with 7 and 3

Race 13: 9 (Best Bet) with 3 and 5



Earning My “Cut” At Gulfstream (2/25/17)

Feb 25th, 2017 | By | Category: gulfstream, Today's Picks

Fast and firm for the Saturday card — yesterday was another incredible day with 9 winners listed, 4 on top, including 2 of 3 best bets at 6-1 and 5-1!  Since January 1st, I have handicapped 20 cards and have the following results: $2 win bets – 56/228 (flat bet profit of $74/16%); $2 best bets – 19/71 (flat bet profit of $39.60/28%; $2 rolling doubles – flat bet profit of $501/14%; $2 rolling pick 3′s – flat bet profit of $1815/18%; $2 exacta best bets up and down with all – flat bet profit of $193/9%.  Incredible results by any measure and 11 out of 20 cards have been profitable.  So, if you follow me every time, you are killing it, but I have had some big down days as well, which means you have to stick with the plan and play the wagers that have been profitable!  Best bets continue to be the most lucrative and it’s a very manageable investment for those who incorporate into their betting strategy, so let’s see how I do this weekend (remember, you have to play both days to benefit most).

In race 10, Ice Cutter (#5) cuts back a bit, fires every time and can stay 5 lengths or so off the lead and outfinish these late — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 10 and 11.

In race 8, General Sham’mah (#1) doesn’t win a lot, but comes back fresh for a sharp claiming outfit and should sit the perfect trip right behind the speed — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 2 and 4.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 5 with 6 and 8

Race 2: 4 with 7 and 8

Race 3: 5 (Best Bet) with 2 and 6

Race 4: 2, 6 and 5

Race 5: 4, 2 and 7

Race 6: 9, 6 and 4

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

Race 8: 1 (Best Bet) with 2 and 4

Race 9: 1 (Best Bet) with 5 and 11

Race 10: 5 (Best Bet) with 10 and 11

Race 11: 7, 6 and 3

Race 12: 4, 1 and 6

Race 13: 2 with 3 and 13



“Glass” Breaks Through At Gulfstream (2/24/17)

Feb 24th, 2017 | By | Category: gulfstream, Today's Picks

Fast and firm for the Friday card — some bonus coverage because a dear friend asked me to handicap today.  Have cooled off some on best bets, but win bets and best bets have been profitable since the beginning of the year and rolling doubles and pick 3′s have also shown a profit.  Also, exactas with best bets up and down have a positive return since 1/1/17.  Only exacta boxes are in the red, so you just have to have a strategy and stick with it!  Let’s see how I do today.

In race 8, Glass House (#6) needed last and has faced better — gets the dream stalking trip today.  Key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 2 and 3.

In race 9, Mississippi Delta (#10) has been freshened and has run well locally — should be right off a deliberate pace today.  Key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with 3′s 9 and 6.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 7, 8 and 5

Race 2: 4, 5 and 6

Race 3: 4, 5 and 8

Race 4: 5, 7 and 2

Race 5: 4, 6 and 1

Race 6: 9 with 2 and 3

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

Race 8: 6 (Best Bet) with 7 and 3

Race 9: 10 (Best Bet) with 9 and 6

Race 10: 2 with 7 and 8

Race 11: 6 with 7 and 9

Fast and firm for the President’s Day card — had a big finish yesterday with two best bets winning at 4-1 and 9-2, so I will try to keep it up today!

In race 1, Rich Daddy (#5) gets a much better post here and can stay close enough to run down the speed just in time at a decent price — key in all early multi-race wagers and play an exacta box with #’s 1 and 3.

In race 2, Aire Bueno (#6) fires every time and should sit a perfect stalk and pounce trip today — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 1 and 2.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!
