Feeling “In The Pink” At Gulfstream (12/14/19)

Dec 14th, 2019 | By | Category: gulfstream, Today's Picks

Fast and firm for the Saturday card — a great example of why I will be concentrating more on this track over the winter!  11 races, several stakes, and always competitive cards to navigate, so let’s see how I do today!

In race 8, The Grade 3 Rampart, Pink Sands (#4) loves the local surface and gets a wicked pace to set up late run at her favorite distance — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 9 and 11.

In race 7, Munchkin Money (#7) is 2 for 2 on this course and should sit a good stalking trip under top jock here — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 1 and 6.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 4, 2 and 6

Race 2: 5, 1 and 10

Race 3: 8, 2 and 5

Race 4: 5, 4 and 3

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

“Lady” Is “Macho” At Aqueduct (12/13/19)

Dec 13th, 2019 | By | Category: Aqueduct, Today's Picks

Showery and good for the Friday the 13th card — really miss the turf racing here and will be focusing on Gulfstream for the next few months, but a friend asked me to handicap, so I am posting today.

In race 6, Lady Macho (#1) cuts back to sprint and should sit a good trip behind the speed and run these down late — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 9 and 10.

In race 4, Dovey Lovey (#4) steps back up and is in great form now — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 5 and 7.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 3, 5 and 4

Race 2: 2, 1a and 5

Race 3: 7 (Best Bet) with 5 and 2

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

Seeing The “Light” At Aqueduct (12/8/19)

Dec 8th, 2019 | By | Category: Aqueduct, Today's Picks

Fast and good for the Sunday card — last day for turf racing for the season, which will make NY racing much less playable, but let’s revel in the final day!  Not a great day yesterday for winners on top, but had two nice triple boxes and ended with a $436 pick 3, so let’s see how I do today.

In race 9, The Grade 3 Fall Highweight Handicap, Wonderful Light (#5) has run great locally for hot trainer and should sit a perfect stalking trip behind a real speed duel and run these down late at 3-1 or so — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 7 and 3.

In race 7, Newly Minted (#4) cuts back to favorite distance and should wear these down at the wire — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 8 and 6.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 1, 4 and 3

Race 2: 4, 2 and 5

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

Race 4: 7, 1 and 3

Race 5: 7, 2 and 3

Race 6: 9, 1 and 2

Race 7: 4 (Best Bet) with 8 and 6

Race 8: 1 (Best Bet) with 7 and 2

Race 9: 5 (Best Bet) with 7 and 3

Dec 7th, 2019 | By | Category: Aqueduct, Today's Picks

Fast and yielding for the incredible Cigar Mile card at Aqueduct — may be last day where turf races make great cards here, so let’s hope we go out with a bang!

In race 4, Broadway Run (#4) has run best races on non firm turf and should get a great stalking trip here and hold off the closers — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 5 and 7.

In race 1, Modernist (#3) had useful prep and now stretches out for money run for crafty second out trainer — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 8 and 9.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!
