“I Can Diggit” At Belmont (5/28/18)

May 28th, 2018 | By | Category: Belmont, Today's Picks

Good and good for the Memorial Day card — not a very good handicapping weekend, but this is the first card I have really liked here  in a few weeks and my record on Memorial Day is really good (especially when they ran the Met Mile), so let’s see if can bounce back today and right the ship.

In race 9, Can You Diggit (#7) loves the mile and gets a brutal pace to set up late run — should be a great price today!  Key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 5 and 2.

In race 10, Cumbria (#7) improved dramatically on lasix and has tremendous upside — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 4 and 11.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 8, 6 and 2

Race 2: 1, 3 and 7

Race 3: 7 (Best Bet) with 6 and 9

Race 4: 2 with 6 and 1

Race 5: 4, 6 and 9

Race 6: 9 (Best Bet) with 5 and 7

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

Race 8: 6 with 9 and 10

Race 9: 7 (Best bet) with 5 and 2

Race 10: 7 (Best Bet) with 4 and 11

May 26th, 2018 | By | Category: Belmont, Today's Picks

Fast and firm for the Saturday card — a pretty awful day on Friday, so let’s just move forward and stay positive.

In race 8, Getoffmyback (#6) cuts back to sprint and drops for the money run with preferred jock — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 7 and 2.

In race 7, Hannah’s Smile (#11) comes back off he layoff for a trainer on quite a run here — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 7 and 8.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 5, 3 and 2

Race 2: 2 (Best Bet) with 5 and 4

Race 3: 7, 6 and 5

Race 4: 2, 5 and 6

Race 5: 3, 1 and 6

Race 6: 8, 1 and 5

“Playing Hooky” At Belmont (5/25/18)

May 25th, 2018 | By | Category: Belmont, Today's Picks

Fast and firm for the Friday card — the Memorial Day Weekend is usually a good handicapping stretch for me, so let’s see if we can kick it off on a positive note!

In race 9, Playing Hooky (#10) has burned a lot of money in the past, but will be a better price here and can stalk a moderate pace and prevail late — key in all late multi-race wagers and play an exacta box with #’s 11 and 12.

In race 3, Silverware (#6) gets major class relief here and should sit a perfect trip and win this on best.  Key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 6 and 2.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 6, 5 and 3

Race 2: 5, 9 and 1

Race 3: 6 (Best Bet) with 4 and 2

Race 4: 5, 4 and 3

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

Race 6: 6, 5 and 2

Race 7: 5, 2 and 7

Race 8: 3, 9 and 4

Race 9: 10 (Best Bet) with 11 and 12



Not A “Happy” Preakness Day At Pimlico (5/19

May 19th, 2018 | By | Category: Today's Picks

Sloppy and soft for the Preakness card — they took every race off the turf except one and the scratches have made this card almost unplayable, but I will go ahead and give my picks out to anyone playing.

In race 3, Happy Farm (#6) may post mild upset if fires best shot.

In race 6, Belfour (#6) likes it wet and can make final run.

In race 13, the Preakness, not sure anyone can beat Justify, but maybe Lone Sailor (#2) can be in the ticket at a price.
