A Case Of “Kidnapping” At Belmont (10/31/20)

Oct 31st, 2020 | By | Category: Belmont, Today's Picks

Muddy and yielding for the last Saturday card of the meet with races 2, 4 and 10 off the turf.  Best bets been running much better here lately, so play accordingly.  Started handicapping the Breeders Cup and I am very excited about the races on Saturday, so let’s try and build some momentum here today and tomorrow!

In race 8, Kidnapped (#5) will be a great price and just missed against some of these in last — taken to upset with a more alert start.  Key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 2 and 12.

In race 3, Dreams of Tomorrow (#4) returned off a layoff going long on the turf and should love the switch back to a sprint on the main track — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 6 and 5.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 6, 4 and 2

Race 2: 3, 13 and 11

Race 3: 4 (Best Bet) with 6 and 5

Race 4: 12 (Best Bet) 4 and 3

Race 5: 6, 2 and 3

Race 6: 5, 1 and 2

Race 7: 3, 4 and 6

Race 8: 5 (Best Bet) with 2 and 12

Race 9: 2, 5 and 1

Race 10: 11, 10 and 15



It’s “Judgement” Day At Belmont (10/25/20)

Oct 25th, 2020 | By | Category: Belmont, Today's Picks

Fast and firm for the Sunday card — only one more weekend to go before the end of the meet, so the Breeders Cup at Keeneland is almost here!  Had a very good day yesterday with two double digit winners on top, including a 4-1 best bet and listed 3 nice exacta boxes which made those bets profitable, so I will try and keep it up today!

In race 8, Last Judgement (#1) should get a brutal pace to set up late run here if the trip is clean — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 6 and 4.

In race 7, Kitten’s Romance (#4) has been beaten by some of these in last couple, but gets a much better post today and the pace scenario should be friendly to horses that have good positional speed — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 9 and 10.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 4, 1 and 2

Race 2: 4, 2 and 8

Race 3: 3, 6 and 5

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

Race 5: 8, 3 and 2

Race 6: 3, 10 and 8

Race 7: 4 (Best Bet) with 9 and 10

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

Race 9: 2 (Best Bet) with 5 and 7

Race 10: 8, 5 and 3



“Mandating” A Victory At Keeneland (10/24/20)

Oct 24th, 2020 | By | Category: Keeneland, Today's Picks

Sloppy and off the turf for the getaway day of the Fall meet — been an average handicapping time here, so let’s see if we can go out with a bang right before the Breeders Cup!

In race 7, American Mandate (#4) has best dirt form in this off the turf sprint and should sit a perfect trip right off the pace and run these down in the lane — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 8 and 11.

In race 8, Antigravity (#8) worked well for this and had a good prep here for the money run — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 5 and 4.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 5, 2 and 7

Race 2: 1, 6 and 3

Race 3: 8 (Best Bet) with 1 and 9

Race 4: 3, 10 and 7

Race 5: 5, 2 and 4

Race 6: 5, 2 and 9

Race 7: 4 (Best Bet) with 8 and 11

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

Race 9: 4, 2 and 7

Race 10: 7, 10 and 11

Fast and firm for the big NY Bred stakes day at Belmont — only one more week in the fall meet and a good card on tap today, so let’s see if we can make today a winning one!

In race 10, The Empire Classic, Bankit (#5) likes the Belmont oval and has never had 1 1/8 miles around one turn as a option — I will take 5-1 to post minor upset against some whom have beaten him at shorter!  Key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 3 and 2.

In race 6, The Empire Distaff, Lucky Move (#6) should get a fast pace to set up late run here — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 7 and 5.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 12, 4 and 10

Race 2: 6, 3 and 5

Race 3: 3, 4 and 2

Race 4: 3, 4 and 6

Race 5: 11, 5 and 3

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