“Breaking the Rules” At Gulfstream (12/29/18)

Dec 29th, 2018 | By | Category: gulfstream, Today's Picks

Fast and firm for the competitive Saturday card — could be some nice prices today again so play accordingly.  Not much success picking winners on top recently, but did list 4 exacta boxes and best bet races are due to have some winners on top.

In race 11, Breaking the Rules (#4) has been sharp since blinkers were added on turf and could be this good — key in all late multi-race wagers and play an exacta box with #’s 11 and 9.

In race 2, Off Duty (#5) is the main speed and got claimed by sharp outfit with these types — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 7 and 10.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 5, 3 and 4

Race 2: 5 (Best Bet) with 7 and 10

Race 3: 3, 5 and 8

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

Race 5: 5, 1 and 3

Dec 28th, 2018 | By | Category: gulfstream, Today's Picks

Fast and firm for the Friday card — only two small priced favorites on top yesterday and just could’t get some longer ones home, so let’s see how I do today.

In race 6, Shanghai Dreams (#4) goes for good turf sprint trainer and gets the right rider — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 9 and 5.

In race 10, Panama Papers (#12) gets back on turf and likes the local surface — tough post, but the price will be right.  Key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 11 and 5.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 9, 3 and 4

Race 2: 4, 5 and 1

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

Race 4: 1, 2 and 5

Race 5: 1, 4 and 3

Race 10: 12 (Best Bet) with 11 and 5

Race 11: 8, 10 and 4



A “Shimmering” Day At The Big A (12/28/18)

Dec 28th, 2018 | By | Category: Aqueduct, Today's Picks

Raining and sloppy for the Friday card — promised a friend I would handicap today despite the conditions, so let’s see how I do.

In race 7, Shimmering Moon (#6) needed last and should sit right behind the speed and make amends today at a decent price — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 5 and 1.

In race 6, Mighty Zealous (#8) moves up in off going and while not in great form, has races that would win this and will be a big price — play across the board and in an exacta box with #’s 1 and 2.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 6 with 3 and 4

Race 2: 7, 8 and 6

Race 3: 5, 3 and 1

Race 4: 3, 4 and 5

Race 5: 3, 1 and 2

Race 6: 8 (Best Bet) with 1 and 2

Race 7: 6 (Best Bet) with 5 and 1

Race 8: 1, 3 and 6



Keeping My “Sanity” At Gulfstream (12/27/18)

Dec 27th, 2018 | By | Category: gulfstream, Today's Picks

Fast and firm for the Thursday card — not much to say about yesterday with a lot of long shots getting the money, so let’s see how I do today.

In race 9, Sanity (#7) goes for profitable connections, needed last and the stretchout on turf seems appropriate with all the speed signed on her to set up late run — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 10 and 1.

In race 1, Bella Vincenza (#7) ran poorly from marooned slot last time and should rebound here at 3-1 or so — key in all early multi-race wagers and play an exacta box with #’s 3 and 2.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 7 (Best Bet) with 3 and 2

Race 2: 4, 8 and 11

Race 3: 6, 5 and 4

Race 4: 3, 5 and 6

Race 5: 8, 7 and 11

Race 6: 5, 3 and 4

Race 7: 8 (Best Bet) with 7 and 9

Race 8: 7 with 6 and 1

Race 9: 7 (Best Bet) with 10 and 1

Race 10: 7 with 5 and 1
