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



A $74,000 Pick Six Extravaganza At Belmont (7/8/18)

Jul 8th, 2018 | By | Category: Belmont, Today's Picks

Fast and firm for the Sunday card — an incredible day yesterday listing all 11 winners, 6 on top culminating in listing the $30,000 pick 5 and the $74,155 pick 6.  Also, both best bets won in the sequence and if you singled both with the 3 choices in the other 4 races (a $162 ticket), you hit the motherload!  Also listed 5 exacta boxes and 4 trifecta boxes which were also very profitable.  It was a great way to snap out of a poor streak of handicapping during the spring/summer meet, so bring on Saratoga!  But first, let’s see how I do today!

In race 7, Estrechada (#5) has faced some good ones and should sit a perfect trip and get the money today — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 1 and 4.

In race 5, Basic Hero (#3) could be the main speed here and wire these — 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: 4, 3 and 5

Race 2: 1A, 7 and 4

Race 3: 2, 7 and 1

Race 4: 7, 2 and 8

Race 5: 3 (Best Bet) with 7 and 8

Race 6: 5, 2 and 7

Race 7: 5 (Best Bet) with 1 and 4

Race 8: 3, 10 and 1

Race 9: 3 (Best Bet) with 10 and 5

Race 10: 2, 6 and 8

Jul 8th, 2018 | By | Category: Monmouth, Today's Picks

Fast and firm for the Sunday card — 4 winners on top yesterday, but they were short prices and the card today is not really that interesting, but let’s see how we do today!

In race 7, Cheddar Chub (#2) gets another fast pace to set up late run — blinkers did the trick last time and again today.  Key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 3 and 4.

In race 8, Sindarius (#3) ran too good to lose in debut and should graduate with a clean trip here — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 5 and 6.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 5, 7 and 6

Race 2: 1, 9 and 5

Race 3: 1, 8 and 5

Race 4: 6, 2 and 9

Race 5: 2, 7 and 1

In race 6, The Grade 3 Dwyer, Firenze Fire (#7) needed break after Derby, cuts back to flat mile for hottest trainer on the planet and should be a decent price — 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!
