It’s “Scarf” Weather At Aqueduct (1/20/18)

Jan 20th, 2018 | By | Category: Aqueduct, Today's Picks

Clear and fast for the Saturday card — it’s been a long time since I handicapped in my home park because Gulfstream is so far superior, but today’s card is good and the weather is cooperating, so let’s see how I do today.

In race 6, Scarf It Down (#3) cuts back to sprint and should be stalking the pace and wearing them down late — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 1 and 8.

In race 4, Starship Zeus (#4) has best numbers of these and drops for the money run today — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 9 and 10.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 5, 3 and 4

Race 2: 2, 5 and 1

Race 3: 4 with 1 and 5

Race 4: 4 (Best Bet) with 9 and 10

Race 5: 7 (Best Bet) with 2 and 10

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

Race 7: 6, 8 and 2

Race 8: 4, 7 and 2

Race 9: 5, 8 and 11



A ‘Derby” Winner At Gulfstream (1/15/18)

Jan 15th, 2018 | By | Category: gulfstream, Today's Picks

Fast and firm for the Martin Luther King card — 3 winners on top yesterday including 1 best bet, but was just two races away from listing the winner in every race which caused me to miss the early and late pick 5 and the pick 6, so let’s see where we come out today!

In race 10, Derby Champagne (#6) is working well for this and should find this group a good fit to get back to winner’s circle — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 2 and 1.

In race 4, Griff (#8) steps back up after winning last and gets perfect pace set up to set up late run for repeat — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 4 and 5.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 5, 4 and 9

Race 2: 2, 5 and 7

Race 3: 6, 3 and 2

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

Race 5: 9, 8 and 4

Race 6: 10 with 6 and 4

Race 7: 4 (Best Bet) with 6 and 7

Race 8: 4, 6 and 1

Race 9: 7 (Best Bet) with 6 and 1

Race 10: 6 (Best Bet) with 2 and 1

Race 11: 4 with 9 and 8



“Archer” Shoots For A Win At Gulfstream (1/14/18)

Jan 14th, 2018 | By | Category: gulfstream, Today's Picks

Fast and firm for the Sunday card — only two winners on top yesterday and all my best bets lost, but two ran second to long shots and if you played up and down like many of my readers, you hit a $1249 exacta and a $110 exacta, so let’s see how I do today!

In race 1, Archer Road (#5) drops and gets back on turf for the money run — key in all early multi-race wages and play an exacta box with #’s 6 and 8.

In race 5, Candy Asset (#2) had done little wrong in 2 starts and may be better on turf — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 6 and 8.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 5 (Best Bet) with 6 and 8

Race 2: 7, 4 and 2

Race 3: 6, 5 and 2

Race 4: 4, 7 and 2

Race 5: 2 (Best Bet) with 6 and 8

Race 6: 4, 2 and 7

Race 7: 1 with 4 and 9

Race 8: 10, 8 and 7

Race 9: 1 (Best Bet) with 5 and 4

Race 10: 9 (Best Bet) with 2 and 10

Race 11: 4, 10 and 11

 



A “Classic” Card At Gulfstream (1/13/18)

Jan 13th, 2018 | By | Category: gulfstream, Today's Picks

Fast and good for the Saturday card — best bets on top have gone cold, but still hanging on to a flat bet profit, plus multi-race wagers and exacta boxes have been profitable too, so let’s see what happens today.

In race 4, Neoclassic (#10) gets major class relief here and anything close to his best numbers wins this despite tough post — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 3 and 4.

In race 10, Strong Composition (#6) fires every time and can take this at a decent price if he likes Gulfstream — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 2 and 13.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 7, 8 and 10

Race 2: 9 (Best Bet) with 1 and 8

Race 3: 3, 7 and 1

Race 4: 10 (Best Bet) with 3 and 4
