Feeling “Sharp” At Santa Anita (5/27/19)

May 27th, 2019 | By | Category: Today's Picks

Fast and firm for the Memorial Day card with several great stakes races on tap so I thought I would handicap.

In race 9, The Grade 1 Shoemaker Mile, Sharp Samurai (#2) is 5 for 6 on this turf course and is training well for return — tough field here, but the price should be in the 2-1 range.  Key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 5 and 8.

In race 5, Siberian Iris (#4) needed last and stretches out to best distance — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 1 and 3.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 3, 8 and 4

Race 2: 5, 2 and 1

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

Race 4: 8, 5 and 1

Race 5: 4 (Best Bet) with 1 and 3

Race 6: 3, 4 and 6

Race 7: 1, 4 and 7

Race 8: 4, 7 and 6

Race 9: 2 (Best Bet) with 5 and 8

Race 10: 9 (Best Bet) with 3 and 4



“Back On Track” At Belmont (5/27/19)

May 27th, 2019 | By | Category: Belmont, Today's Picks

Good and yielding/good for the Memorial Day card — not much to say about yesterday, so let’s be very positive today because Memorial Day is historically one of my best days of the year!

In race 10, Pat On the Back (#7) came back with a sharp win at sprint distance to set him up for day — lots of speed here to set up a perfect outside stalking trip and 2-1 would be a gift.  Key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 5 and 1.

In race 3, Not So Quiet Man (#1) had good return and now cuts back to sprint — has potential to run these down late at a great price.  Play across the board and use in exacta box with #’s 6 and 8.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 7, 2 and 10

Race 2: 8 (Best Bet) with 7 and 1

Race 3: 1 (Best Bet) with 6 and 8

Race 4: 7, 2 and 4

Race 5: 5, 6 and 1

Race 6: 10, 2 and 1

Race 7: 2, 7 and 3

Race 8: 2, 4 and 3

Race 9: 2, 6 and 10

Race 10: 7 (Best Bet) with 5 and 1

Race 11: 7, 2 and 12



A “Sigh” Of Relief At Belmont (5/26/19)

May 26th, 2019 | By | Category: Belmont, Today's Picks

Fast and firm for the Sunday card — pretty good yesterday with 3 winners on top, 4 exacta boxes, listed the early pick 5 and ended up with a nice flat bet profit.  Not a great card today, but let’s see how I do here.

In race 6, Uncle Sigh (#8) is one of my favorite horses in training and was reclaimed by Chris Englehart who has done great work with this 8 year old — steps up for the money run from just off the pace. Key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 1 and 4.

In race 7, Mamma Dee (#9) faces tougher off the maiden win, but should get a fast pace to set up her late run for top connections — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 8 and 3.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 4, 5 and 2

Race 2: 4, 5 and 2

Race 3: 3, 2 and 1

Race 4: 7, 2 and 3

Race 5: 1, 4 and 7

Race 6: 8 (Best Bet) with 1 and 4

Race 7: 9 (Best Bet) with 8 and 3

Race 8: 4, 2 and 3

Race 9: 8, 4 and 2

Fast and firm for the Saturday card — horrible day yesterday on a card I hated to post, but much more confident today, so let’s see how I do.

In race 6, Positive Skew (#7) cuts back to sprint and should be flying late for top connections — take 3-1 and run!  Key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 6 and 2.

In race 2, Tale of Mist (#6) doesn’t win often, but loves the Belmont oval and should get a perfect stalking trip here and get the money today — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 5 and 1.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!
