Betting On The “Sly” At Belmont (9/10/17)

Sep 10th, 2017 | By | Category: Belmont, Today's Picks

Fast and firm for the Sunday card — a great day yesterday with listing 5 doubles, 4 pick 3′s a $1681 pick 4 and a $7341 pick 5 along with 3 winners in top with a 90% ROI.  However, both best bets lost which isn’t great for my flat bet profit on those bets — but listed the $53.50 exacta in one of those races and my second choice in the other best bet race won at 5-1 which was part of that great pick 5!  My point is that the best bet races can be judged by more than the win % and for the Belmont meet I am tracking how many winners I list in those races and if I list the exacta box so we can assess the total impact of those best bet races.  In Saratoga, my win % was horrible in best bet races, but I listed the winner of those races 70% of the time and those exactas with my best bets running second were very profitable for the meet.  So, keep track and adjust your bets accordingly!  Another good betting card today so let’s see how I do!

In race 10, Sly Ranger(#9) stayed at Belmont instead of shipping to Saratoga and should be fresh for crafty turf trainer and run these down late at a decent price — key in all late multi-race wagers and play an exacta box with #’s 7 and 1.

In race 7, Rapscallion (#1) also stayed at Belmont during the Saratoga meet and loves the local surface and is poised to repeat with a big late run — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 7 and 12.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 3: 1, 5 and 6
