Making My “Mark” At Churchill (5/25/20)

May 25th, 2020 | By | Category: Churchill, Today's Picks

Fast and firm for the Memorial Day card at Churchill — only 2 winners on top again yesterday, but still made a little flat be profit because of the $16 horse in the last race!  Exacta boxes have also been profitable for the meet, but best bets are not running well, which is usually something I do well, so let’s see if I can change that a little today!

In race 9, Markitoff (#10) needed last and has faced some good ones — best figure wins this at a decent price.  Key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 5 and 9.

In race 3, Do Share (#2) is the in-form closer in a race packed with speed and can run these down late with a clean run — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 3 and 7.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 9, 8 and 12

Race 2: 1, 4 and 7

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

Race 4: 5, 3 and 7

Race 5: 2 (Best Bet) with 6 and 3

Race 6: 10, 4 and 7

Race 7: 8, 11 and 2

Race 8: 8, 3 and 2

Race 9: 10 (Best Bet) with 5 and 9

Race 10: 9, 8 and 2



A “Continuation” Bet At Churchill (5/24/20)

May 24th, 2020 | By | Category: Churchill, Today's Picks

Sloppy and firm for the Sunday card — there are storms in the forecast for later in the card, so I will provide dirt picks for races 6 and 9.  Only two winners on top yesterday and best bets continue to disappoint, so I will try and do better today!

In race 7, Continuation (#3) has race well in all 3 starts at this distance and may move up in the slop — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 12 and 8.

In race 6, Sister Hanan (#2) has the best figures and won’t mind any give in the ground — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 9 and 3.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 9, 8 and 2

Race 2: 8, 6 and 9

Race 3: 7 (Best Bet) with 4 and 2

Race 4: 5, 10 and 13

Race 5: 11, 14 and 1

Race 6: 2 (Best Bet) with 9 and 3   Dirt: 12, 3 and 8

Race 7: 3 (Best Bet) with 12 and 8

Race 8: 1, 9 and 11

Race 9: 1 (Best Bet) with 11 and 4  Dirt: 12, 10 and 7

Race 10: 3, 5 and 2



A Winning “Campaign” At Churchill (5/23/20)

May 23rd, 2020 | By | Category: Churchill, Today's Picks

Fast and firm for the challenging 11-race card packed with stakes races and full fields — only 6 for 32 here so far, but I have a nice flat bet profit because of some big prices on top, so until further notice, keep playing my top picks even if the percentage isn’t high.  Hope to do better on best bets, so let’s see how I do today.

In race 9, Global Campaign (#3) came back with a big race in first start as a 4-year old and could be any kind this year — should sit a perfect stalking trip along the live rail and the mile suits — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 6 and 14.

In race 5, Caribou Club (#3) has the back figures to win this and can be closer to a moderate pace and prevail late at a decent price — 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!

Race 1: 9, 12 and 3

Race 2: 9, 4 and 6

Race 3: 4, 10 and 12

Race 4: 6, 11 and 4

Race 5: 3 (Best Bet) with 8 and 9

Race 6: 4 (Best Bet) with 2 and 6

Race 7: 8 (Best Bet) with 4 and 2

Race 8: 9, 7 and 2

Race 9: 3 (Best Bet) with 6 and 14

Race 10: 2, 6 and 10

Race 11: 2, 5 and 6



Having An “Affair” At Churchill (5/22/20)

May 22nd, 2020 | By | Category: Churchill, Today's Picks

Fast and firm for the Friday card — another competitive day here and tomorrow’s card is stakes packed.  Only 4 for 22 last weekend here, but a flat bet profit with some nice prices, so I will try and be a little more consistent today.

In race 9, English Affair (#7) cuts back to shortest distance in over a year and needed last, should get a contested pace and sit a good trip to run these down late at a nice price.  Key in all doubles and pick 3′s, play across the board and use in an exacta box with #’s 9 and 1.

In race 3, Hardly A Secret (#3) cuts back to best distance and has enough positional speed to track the pace and out-finish these — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 6 and 7.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 12, 1 and 4

Race 2: 7 (Best Bet) with 6 and 2

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

Race 4: 8, 6 and 1

Race 5: 1, 10 and 9

Race 6: 6, 10 and 9

Race 7: 8 (Best Bet) with 11 and 6

Race 8: 6, 5 and 7

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