Entering “Virgin Territory” At Monmouth (7/4/18)

Jul 4th, 2018 | By | Category: Monmouth, Today's Picks

Fast and firm for the July 4th card — have been handicapping really well here with a limited number of postings — went 9 for 24 over the weekend with a nice flat bet profit, so let’s see how I do today!

In race 7, first timer Catoria (#6) debuts for hot connections from a dam who has produced many winners  — win early sire seals the deal at a decent price.  Key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 2 and 4.

In race 9, Morally Inflexible (#2) is in great form and should sit right behind the outside pace setter and wear that one down late at a short price — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 3 and 8.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 5, 2 and 8

Race 2: 5, 2 and 4

Race 3: 4, 7 and 5

Race 4: 3, 7 and 4

Race 5: 7, 9 and 2

Race 6: 5, 1 and 3

Race 7: 6 (Best Bet) with 2 and 4

Race 8: 5, 7 and 3

Race 9: 2 (Best Bet) with 3 and 8



Putting My “Mark” At Belmont (7/4/18)

Jul 4th, 2018 | By | Category: Belmont, Today's Picks

Fast and firm for the July 4th card — another mediocre card for the time of year in NY, but I haven’t been handicapping well enough here, so let’s see if I can start to get hot leading up to the Saratoga meet.

In race 6, Markitoff (#2) gets class relief here and will be on or just off a soft pace here and should be able to hold off the closers on a very firm turf course — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 3 and 1.

In race 8, Amertume (#1) gets cozy inside post with a moderate pace expected and should be these home near the lead — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 4 and 3.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 4, 1 and 6

Race 2: 5 with 8 and 3

Race 3: 6, 4 and 2

Race 4: 7, 3 and 6

Race 5: 6, 7 and 5

Race 6: 2 (Best Bet) with 3 and 1

Race 7: 4, 2 and 1

Race 8: 1 (Best Bet) with 4 and 3

Race 9: 11 with 8 and 5
