Not A “Happy” Preakness Day At Pimlico (5/19

May 19th, 2018 | By | Category: Today's Picks

Sloppy and soft for the Preakness card — they took every race off the turf except one and the scratches have made this card almost unplayable, but I will go ahead and give my picks out to anyone playing.

In race 3, Happy Farm (#6) may post mild upset if fires best shot.

In race 6, Belfour (#6) likes it wet and can make final run.

In race 13, the Preakness, not sure anyone can beat Justify, but maybe Lone Sailor (#2) can be in the ticket at a price.



“Something Awesome” Happening At Pimlico (5/18/18)

May 17th, 2018 | By | Category: Today's Picks

Rain is forecast until late Saturday so I am posting Friday’s card early with the assumption that the track will be sloppy and all races will be on the main track so expect a lot of scratches from the turf races, so play accordingly.

In race 9, The Grade 3 Pimlico Special, Something Awesome (#8) loves a wet track and gets a fast pace to set up late run at a decent price – key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 9 and 2.

In race 5, Startwithsilver (#3) has best figure ever in slop and should sit a perfect trip right behind the speed — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 8 and 1.

In race 11, The Grade 2 Black Eyed Susan,  Red Ruby (#4) disappointed in last but gets the nod to beat these home on best — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 8 and 2.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 3, 7 and 4

Race 2: 7, 1 and 10

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

Race 4: 9, 1 and 3

Race 5: 3 (Best Bet) with 8 and 1

Race 6: 12, 9 and 7

Race 7: 4 (Best Bet) with 9 and 8

Race 8: 4, 1 and 7

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

Race 10: 9, 5 and 1

Race 11: 4 (Best Bet) with 8 and 2

Making A Good “Impression” At Belmont (5/12/18)

May 12th, 2018 | By | Category: Belmont, Today's Picks

Muddy and good for the great Saturday card — right now all races remain on the turf, so that’s how I am handicapping, but keep an eye out for any changes due to weather!  Not a bad day yesterday even though I listed only 1 winner on top, but my second and third choices were winning consistently and the multi-race wagers were profitable, so let’s see how I do today.

In race 9, The grade 3 Beaugay, My Impression (#1) needed last and moves way up on soft turf — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 7 and 6.

In race 8, Great Stuff (#4) gets back on dirt and gets a very fast pace to set up late run at a decent price — 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: 4, 1 and 6

Race 2: 7, 9 and 11

Race 3: 6 (Best Bet) with 4 and 1

Race 4: 12, 7 and 8

Race 5: 10 with 4 and 7

Race 6: 3, 1 and 2

Race 7: 7, 2 and 3

Race 8: 4 (Best Bet) with 3 and 2

Race 9: 1 (Best Bet) with 7 and 6

Race 10: 3 with 4 and 1

Race 11: 8, 6 and 5

Fast and firm for the Friday card — got some rain last night which may make the turf courses more inviting for closers, so let’s see what happens today!

In race 3, Bonita Springs (#4) lures Ortiz who was the last jockey to win with her and gets a decent pace to set up late run — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 2 and 1.

In race 4, Gauguin (#7) runs well fresh and has the back numbers to win this off the layoff — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with 6 and 1.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 3, 6 and 7

Race 2: 1, 3 and 5

Race 3: 4 (Best Bet) with 2 and 1
