In Good “Hands” At Del Mar (8/18/18)

Aug 18th, 2018 | By | Category: Today's Picks

Fast and firm for the Pacific Classic card — though I would try my luck here considering what’s going on at Saratoga, so let’s see how I do!

In race 7, Stone Hands (#6) gets major class relief here and should sit a perfect stalking trip and wear these down late — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 5 and 8.

In race 8, The Grade 1 Del mar Oaks, Ollie’s Candy (#4) has fired every start and gets a much better post and more distance to keep improving — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 5 and 7.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 7, 3 and 4

Race 2: 2, 8 and 3

Race 3: 14, 11 and 6

Race 4: 5 (Best Bet) with 9 and 3

Race 5: 10, 1 and 3

Race 8: 4 (Best Bet) with 5 and 7

Race 9: 8, 10 and 7

“Gypsy” Tells My Fortune At Saratoga (8/18/18)

Aug 18th, 2018 | By | Category: Saratoga, Today's Picks

Sloppy and races 1,2, 7 and 10 off the turf.  The weather has been really tough on Saratoga handicappers everywhere — especially the off the turf races for 2 year olds where you don’t know who can run on the dirt.  I have been a in real funk the last 4 handicapping days with only a few winners on top and best bets continue to either not run well or lose every photo when they do.  Looks like the last few weeks of the meet will have better weather, so let’s see if we can get back on track today.

In race 5, Gypsy Janie (#5) got claimed by crafty trainer and should love a wet track and rally late to win this with Jose — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 3 and 4.

In race 9, The Grade 1 Alabama, Eskimo Kisses (#2) has been beaten by Midnight Bisou (#3) before, but the added distance could be the great equalizer today and any moisture in the track should be a benefit — 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: 8, 12 and 13

Race 2: 13, 11 and 8

Race 3: 6, 4 and 7

Race 4: 2, 4 and 7

Race 5: 7 (Best Bet) with 3 and 4

Race 7: 13, 10 and 8

Race 8: 2, 4 and 6

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