Seeing A “Ghost” At Keeneland (10/8/21)

Oct 8th, 2021 | By | Category: Keeneland, Today's Picks

Fast and yielding for opening day of the Fall Meet with a contested 10-race card to navigate, so let’s see how I do here over the next few 3-day weekends of handicapping!

In race 7, Kentucky Ghost (#4) meets easier here and likes a non-firm course — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 5 and 1.

In race 4, Don’t Forget (#4) may seem like the less likely winner of the 2 for Diordino, but needed last and likes this surface — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 2 and 1.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 5, 2 and 3

Race 2: 5, 9 and 2

Race 3: 6, 1 and 5

Race 4: 4 (Best Bet) with 2 and 1

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

Race 6: 12, 5 and 4

Race 7: 4 (Best Bet) with 5 and 1

Race 8: 5, 4 and 3

Race 9: 4, 8 and 10

Race 10: 8, 2 and 9

 



Having Some “Fun” At Belmont (10/8/21)

Oct 8th, 2021 | By | Category: Belmont, Today's Picks

Fast and firm for the Friday card — not a big fan of the card today and glad to have Keeneland opening for a much more fulfilling handicapping experience, but here I am still trying to navigate all the speed favoring situations here!

In race 7, Funwhileitlasted (#2) cuts back to best distance and should get enough pace to stalk and outfinish these — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 3 and 11.

In race 8, Clever Fellow (#2) goes turf to dirt for crafty trainer and can stay close enough to wear these down late — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 8 nnd 4.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 4, 2 and 5

Race 2: 9, 8 and 2

Race 3: 2, 4 and 1

Race 4: 2, 1 and 5

Race 5: 8, 10 and 4

Race 6: 3, 1 and 5

Race 7: 2 (Best Bet) with 3 and 11

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

Race 9: 4, 9 and 5
