“Twist & Shout” At Belmont (6/30/19)

Jun 30th, 2019 | By | Category: Belmont, Today's Picks

Fast and firm for the Sunday card — not much to talk about yesterday with one of the worst Saturday cards on record — today’s card is a little better, but only 8 races on tap, so let’s see if we can find some value.

In race 7, Twisted Tom (#5) likes the local surface and distance — used to early in last and should get a much better trip stalking all the speed here.  Key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 1 and 3.

In race 6, Mad Munnys (#9) gets nice outside post to use stalking tactics after needing last — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 7 and 5.  Here’s the entire card without scratches and good luck!

Race 1: 6, 1 and 2

Race 2: 2, 1 and 7

Race 3: 1, 3 and 2

Race 4: 5 (Best Bet) with 7 and 6

Race 5: 8, 5 and 2

Race 6: 9 (Best Bet) with 7 and 5

Race 7: 5 (Best Bet) with 1 and 3

Race 8: 3, 5 and 4



“Wings” Can Fly At Belmont (6/29/19)

Jun 29th, 2019 | By | Category: Belmont, Today's Picks

Fast and firm for the horrible Saturday card — so disappointed in the number of horses running here this week, but after handicapping Churchill, I came back here.

In race 8, the Grade 2 Mother Goose, Wings of Dawn (#6) has the most upside of these and Casse is winning everything these days — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 4 and 1.

In race 7, Bellavais (#4) is in great form right now and may have a tactical advantage on Uni (#3) who will be the heavy favorite and may close too late with the track favoring speed — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 3 and 1.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 5, 4 and 2

Race 2: 2, 4 and 1

Race 3: 2, 6 and 3

Race 4: 2, 6 and 4

Race 5: 2, 8 and 5

Race 6: 5, 3 and 2

Race 7: 4 (Best Bet) with 3 and 1

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

Race 9: 3, 6 and 4



Feeling A “Draft” At Churchill (6/29/19)

Jun 29th, 2019 | By | Category: Churchill, Today's Picks

Fast and firm for the Saturday card — it’s closing day and the Belmont card is terrible, so I thought I would add on Churchill today (one of my best handicapping tracks).

In race 9, Undrafted (#2) loves the local sod, had useful comeback race and Lanerie has won last two times he was aboard — enough speed to get up in last jumps at 7-2 or so.  Key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 8 and 12.

In race 7, St. Denman (#3) had excuse in last and moves inside — Tyler rides well for this trainer and can win this from mid-pack at a decent price.  Key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s8 and 4.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 6, 2 and 1

Race 2: 5, 2 and 6

Race 3: 3 (Best Bet) with 6 and 5

Race 4: 5, 6 and 7

Race 5: 5, 10 and 3

Race 6: 1 with 9 and 6

Race 7: 2 (Best Bet) with 8 and 4

Race 8: 1, 7 and 4

Race 9: 2 (Best Bet) with 8 and 12

Race 10: 2, 7 and 3

Race 11: 4 (Best Bet) with 10 and 1

Race 12: 5, 4 and 6



“Hierarchy” Easy To Navigate At Belmont (6/28/19)

Jun 28th, 2019 | By | Category: Belmont, Today's Picks

Fast and firm for the Friday card — had the first two winners on top yesterday, but not much else, be aware of the speed bias on turf as the weather stays hot and dry!

In race 6, Hierarchy (#6) doesn’t have the killer instinct, but has the numbers to win this and blowout work for this indicates a more forward position here — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 1 and 5.

In race 2, Inclunation (#5) goes for very profitable connections and should win this if not far back early — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 3 and 2.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 2, 6 and 1

Race 2: 5 (Best Bet) with 3 and 2

Race 3: 2, 9 and 4

Race 4: 1 and 3

Race 5: 4, 3 and 1

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

Race 7: 9, 2 and 1

Race 8: 8 (Best Bet) with 5 and 1

Race 9: 8, 2 and 1
