Talking The “Talk” Today At Belmont (10/21/17)

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

Fast and firm for NY Showcase Day — actually will be at Belmont playing the card with a great group from the Regional Testing Corporation (Bronx), so hope to have a good day.  Thanks to Lois Engel from Pucker Ridge Farm and her husband Paul for inviting me!  Best bets have been good lately, so let’s see how I do with a competitive card to handicap today.

In race 6, The Sleepy Hollow, We Should Talk (#8) ran great in debut and gets the class test today, but should win if able to repeat debut — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 2 and 7.

In race 5, The Empire Classic Handicap, Governor Malibu (#8) hasn’t won in a year, but he is the best horse in the race and should revert to closing tactics today after being forced to chase Diversify in last and is a good bet at 3-1 today.  Key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 3 and 1.  Here’s the entire card without scratches and good luck!

Race 1: 4, 2 and 5

Race 2: 6, 4 and 8

Race 3: 1, 3 and 5

Race 4: 8 (Best Bet) with 5 and 6

Race 5: 8 (Best Bet) with 3 and 1

Race 6: 8 (Best Bet) with 2 and 7

Race 7: 2, 8 and 3

Race 8: 10, 3 and 6

Race 9: 1, 7 and 5

Race 10: 9 with 8 and 3

Race 11: 3, 4 and 10

Oct 21st, 2017 | By | Category: Keeneland, Today's Picks

Fast and firm for the Saturday card — not a bad day yesterday with two winners on top and listed a nice $277 double, so let’s see how I do today.

In race Woodmans Luck (#4) always fires and gets a favorable pace scenario to set up late run here — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 3 and 11.

In race 9, The Grade 2 Raven Run, Tequilita (#7) is a 7 furlong specialist and likes the local surface — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 4 and 8.  Here’s the entire card without scratches and good luck!

Race 2: 1, 8 and 7

Race 3: 5 (Best Bet) with 1 and 7
