Looking For A “Silver” Lining At Belmont (5/21/17)

May 21st, 2017 | By | Category: Belmont, Today's Picks

Fast and firm for the Sunday card — had a couple of tough beats yesterday, although best bets were profitable and I rebounded pretty well at Pimlico, so let’s see how I do today.

In race 7, Startswithsilver (#2) maybe the longer one of Linda Rice’s entrants here, but has run well fresh Irad jumps on — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 3 and 6.

In race 8, Threeperfections (#7) is working well for return and anything close to his best wins this — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 2 and 3.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 3, 5 and 2

Race 2: 1, 3 and 4

Race 3: 6 with 5 and 3

Race 4: 3, 6 and 2

Race 5: 6 with 3 and 4

Race 6: 8 with 6 and 3

Race 7: 2 (Best Bet) with 3 and 6

Race 8: 7 (Best Bet) with 2 and 3

Race 9: 4, 11 and 1



Taking A “Chance” At Belmont (5/20/17)

May 20th, 2017 | By | Category: Belmont, Today's Picks

Fast and firm for the Saturday card — not a bad time to forget about the horror show at Pimlico yesterday with some good betting races.

In race 8, Tiz a Chance (#10) needed last should revert to stalk and pounce tactics with all the speed in here — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 4 and 5.

In race 7, Morticia (#5) cuts back to turf sprint and should get the money late — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 3 and 2.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 7, 3 and 8

Race 2: 4, 3 and 5

Race 3: 2, 1 and 6

Race 4: 1, 6 and 2

Race 5: 9, 7 and 2

Race 6: 5, 3 and 7

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

Race 8: 10 (Best Bet) with 4 and 5

Race 9: 9 with 8 and 10

Race 10: 6, 8 and 5



“Theory” Has A Real Chance At Pimlico (5/20/17)

May 20th, 2017 | By | Category: Today's Picks, Triple Crown

Fast and good for the Preakness card — had a horrible day yesterday and just want to move on today, although this card is a head scratcher also, so I am not much more optimistic.

In race 7, Theory (#8) clearly needed last and may have been victimized for a pretty slow pace up front — should get a better flow today and the price is too good to ignore.  Key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 1 and 5.

In race 6, Barney Rebel (#15) gets tough outside post, but is better than these and can win from here — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 5 and 1.

In race 5, Pretty Perfection (#5) gets perfect pace scenario to set up late burst after horror trip in last — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 2 and 1.  The Preakness looks like a race between Always Dreaming and Classic Empire — not much else in here.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 6, 5 and 1

Race 2: 6 with 4 and 3

Race 3: 1, 8 and 6

Race 4: 2, 5 and 3

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

Race 6: 15 (Best Bet) with 1 and 6

Race 7: 8 (Best Bet) with 1 and 5

Race 8: 4, 6 and 3

Race 9: 5, 4 and 6

Race 10: 7, 6 and 2

Race 11: 5, 2 and 1

Race 12: 7, 10 and 4

Race 13: 5, 4 and 6

Race 14: 4, 7 and 8

 



An “Outsider” Can Win At Pimlico (5/19/17)

May 18th, 2017 | By | Category: Today's Picks

Fast and firm for Black Eyed Susan Day with 14 great races on tap, so let’s see how I do leading up to the Preakness.

In race 6, Outsider Art (#6) prepped with a sprint in last and has the numbers to win this at a decent price — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 1 and 7.

In race 8, Compelled (#5) fires every time and is working great for crafty trainer — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 3 and 1.

The Black Eyed Susan (Race 11) is a wide open affair, but may set up for a closer with a fast pace assured, so I landed on Summer Luck (#9).  Here’s the entire card without scratches and good luck!

Race 1: 4, 5 and 2

Race 2: 3, 5 and 8

Race 3: 4, 6 and 1
