Give This “Girl” A Whirl At Belmont (7/15/18)

Jul 15th, 2018 | By | Category: Belmont, Today's Picks

Sloppy and yielding for getaway day at Belmont — had a great last two weeks here after a bad streak, so let’s see if that carries over to Saratoga next week!!!

But for today, in race 5, Banty’s Girl (#9) needed last and should be forwardly placed on the best part of the course and win this at 3-1 or so — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 4 and 2.

In race 2, My Impression (#2) has been beaten by a few of these, but Shug freshened him up and could have an advantage at a mile with some plodders signed on and will be a price — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 3 and 1.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 2, 1 and 3

Race 2: 2 (Best Bet) with 3 and 1

Race 3: 2, 1 and 5

Race 4: 2, 8 and 7

Race 5: 9 (Best Bet) with 4 and 2

Race 6: 7, 4 and 2

Race 7: 5, 9 and 8

Race 8: 1, 2 and 6

Doing A “Rap” At Belmont (7/13/18)

Jul 13th, 2018 | By | Category: Belmont, Today's Picks

Fast and firm for the Friday card — been very dry here so the inner turf course is really favoring inside speed and the main track is playing kindly to horses forwardly placed, so play accordingly until further notice. Had a great handicapping weekend last week so let’s see if I can keep it up!

In race 6, Rappel (#7) definitely needed last and should get a faster pace to set up late run (which is still happening on the widener) — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 2 and 10.

In race 5, Francis Freud (#3) has run numbers fast enough to win this and will be a big price — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 5 and 8.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 5, 4 and 3

Race 2: 6, 5 and 2

Race 3: 3, 2 and 5

Race 4: 8, 5 and 3

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

Race 6: 7 (Best Bet) with 2 and 10

Race 7: 1, 4 and 6

Race 8: 3, 2 and 1

Race 9: 7, 6 and 11
