There’s A Beautiful “Breeze” At Belmont (9/29/19)

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

Fast and firm for the Sunday card — another controversial DQ in a big race marred yesterday’s card, but we need to move on and deal with the handicapping challenges of today, so let’s see how we do.

In race 8, The Grade 2 Miss Grillo, English Breeze (#5) has run well in first two starts, but finished behind the favorite here in last — can turn the tables with a clean trip and better positional speed and will be in the 4-1 range here.  Key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 4 and 3.

In race 5, Bank Examiner (#8) just broke maiden, but may be this good and should get a nice stalking trip from this post — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 2 and 4.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 3, 7 and 2

Race 2: 1, 7 and 5

Race 3: 5, 1 and 6

Race 4: 1, 4 and 2

Race 5: 8 (Best Bet) with 2 and 4

Race 6: 8, 11 and 7

Race 7: 7, 5 and 4

Race 8: 5 (Best Bet) with 4 and 3

Race 9: 2, 8 and 9

Fast and firm for the the stakes packed Saturday card  — a dry spell has made both dirt and turf courses favor speed, so play accordingly.  Wish the stakes races seemed more competitive, but if you can beat the favorites you will get paid, so we will try and see what happens.

In race 7,  High Jingo (#6) should sit a perfect trip right on the pace and hold off the closers with the bias — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 5 and 8.

In race 3, Swamp Rat (#7) has faced some tough ones and 7 furlongs may be perfect distance — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 6 and 1.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 2, 1 and 7

Race 2: 5, 7 and 1

Race 3: 7 (Best Bet) with 6 and 1

Race 4: 6 and 4

Fast and firm for the Sunday card — had a great first 6 races yesterday with 3 winners in the sequence at nice prices and a $3800 pick 5 for .50 cents, but best bets didn’t come through, so there’s room for improvement today!

In race 5, Victorine (#8) needed last and worked a bullet for this — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 4 and 1.

In race 10, El Hermano (#2) had wide trip in last and gets a cozy inside post here to sit a perfect stalking trip and prevail late at a decent price — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 3 and 4.  Mott has several live horses on the card — here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 2: 4, 5 and 8

Race 3: 4, 1 and 5

Race 4: 8, 7 and 1
