Jul 6th, 2019 | By | Category: Belmont, Today's Picks

Fast and firm for an incredible 11-race card on closing weekend at Belmont, but there are thunderstorms in the forecast so be aware of any track changes or races off the turf.  Last couple of days here have been only ok and very excited to see Saratoga next week, so let’s go out with a bang on July 4th weekend!

In race 9, The grade 1 Belmont Derby Invitational, Spinoff (#10) makes turf debut against a monster field, but can run all day and has faced some good ones — will be a monster price and worth taking a shot here!  Key in all doubles and pick 3′s, play across the board and an exacta box with #’s 8 and 3.

In race 10, The Grade 2 Suburban, Pavel (#11) raced well in the Metropolitan here and should be cranked for a peak effort stretching out at a decent price — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 1 and 3.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 3, 6 and 1

Race 2: 11, 10 and 9

Race 3: 3, 6 and 5

Race 4: 8 (Best Bet) with 5 and 2

Race 5: 6 (Best Bet) with 1 and 10

Race 6: 1, 5 and 3

Race 7: 4, 2 and 9

Race 8: 9, 4 and 2

Race 9: 10 (Best Bet) with 8 and 3

Race 10: 11 (Best Bet) with 1 and 3

Jul 5th, 2019 | By | Category: Belmont, Today's Picks

Fast and firm for the Friday card — had two winners on top yesterday, including a 3-1 best bet, so let’s see how I do today.

In race 5, Bitumen (#6) cuts back to sprint, which is his preferred distance and should run down the speeds late if close enough early — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 2 and 1.

In race 6, Monhegan (#5) goes for profitable connections and the distance suits perfectly — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 7 and 8.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

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

Race 2: 2 (Best Bet) with 4 and 9

Race 3: 3, 1 and 4

Race 4: 2, 9 and 1

Race 5: 6 (Best Bet) with 2 and 1

Getting A “Bird’s Eye View” At Belmont (7/4/19)

Jul 4th, 2019 | By | Category: Belmont, Today's Picks

Fast and firm for the July 4th card — had winner of first and last yesterday but not much else!  I just saw the card for Saturday and it’s fantastic — just a reminder of what NY racing should be and highlights all the terrible cards here in the Spring/Summer meet.  Can’t wait for the Spa, but let’s try and get some positive energy going before opening day next Thursday.

In race 4, Bird’s Eye View (#1) benefits greatly from scratch of #4 and should get a very comfortable trip on or just off a slow pace — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 7 and 3.

In race 7, Mr. Massena (#6) will appreciate the 1 1/8 mile distance on the inner — stalking a moderate pace and holding off the closers.  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: 1, 6 and 4

Race 2: 7, 5 and 1

Race 3: 3, 1 and 2

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

Race 5: 3, 4 and 1

Race 6: 1, 10 and 5

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

Race 8: 5 (Best Bet) with 7 and 8

Race 9: 1, 2 and 6
