Making An “Outrageous Bet” At Belmont (10/5/18)

Oct 5th, 2018 | By | Category: Today's Picks

Fast and yielding for the Friday card — been having a great fall meet here with a nice flat bet profit over 8 cards, so let’s see if I can keep it up today.

In race 8, Outrageous Bet (#5) has shown ability on a soft course and gets a very fast pace to set up late run at a nice price — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 9 and 3.

In race 7, Appealing Briefs (#2) always runs well but rarely wins — should get a great pace to close into today and get up — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 8 and 5.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 2, 3 and 6

Race 2: 4, 2 and 8

Race 3: 3, 5 and 4

Race 4: 2, 5 and 7

Race 5: 3, 8 and 1

Race 6: 3, 5 and 2

Race 7: 2 (Best Bet) with 8 and 5

Race 8: 5 (Best Bet) with 9 and 3

Race 9: 7, 6 and 8

 



On My “Own” At Keeneland (10/5/18)

Oct 5th, 2018 | By | Category: Keeneland, Today's Picks

Fast and soft for opening day of the Fall Meet at Keeneland — love to handicap here with some of the most competitive racing in the country, so let’s see h0w I do today.

In race 6, Mineyourownmalone (#8) is a win machine on dirt and cuts back to 7 furlongs for a trainer who does well with route to sprint angle and will be a good price — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 6 and 7.

In race 9, The Grade 1 Alcibiades, Restless Rider (#3) has done nothing wrong in 3 starts and should relish the stretchout — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 8 and 14.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 8, 4 and 12

Race 2: 10, 6 and 3

Race 3: 4 (Best Bet) with 6 and 7

Race 4: 8, 3 and 2

Race 5: 6, 5 and 1
