A “Rockin” Finish At Belmont (7/16/17)

Jul 16th, 2017 | By | Category: Belmont, Today's Picks

Fast and firm for closing day at Belmont — Saratoga less than a week away!  Had 3 winners on top yesterday, but it wasn’t a great day, so let’s see if we can go out with a bang.  Keep in mind that the Ortiz brothers are still battling for the jockey title, so all of their horses will be live today.

In race 2, Rockin Alli (#11) cuts back and can sit just off the pace and finish here and the price will be right — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 10 and 8.

In race 11: Unbroken Chain (#4) shows up every time and should sit a good stalking trip with Castellano calling the shots — key in all late multi-race wagers and play an exacta box with #’s 1 and 9.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!  I will be trying to handicap as many cards as possible at Saratoga, so keep checking he site all meet for my picks!

Counting On A “Friend” At Belmont (7/13/17)

Jul 13th, 2017 | By | Category: Belmont, Today's Picks

Fast and firm for the Thursday card — although there are thunderstorms in the forecast so keep aware of changing track conditions and races taken off the turf.  All selections made for turf only.  Had a weird day Sunday when I listed the pick 6 and had 3 winners on top, but none were best bets which have now gone 0 for 9 the last few cards, so let’s see what happens today.

In race 1, My Friend (#5) has faced better, gets Ortiz and the right pace to run them down late — key in all early multi-race wagers and play an exacta box with #’s 2 and 4.

In race 5, Cursor (#5) has faced some good ones and the cut back will aid late kick with a lot of speed on tap — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 4 and 1.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 5 (Best Bet) with 2 and 4)

Race 2: 5 with 3 and 2

Race 3: 4 with 5 and 9

Race 4: 1, 5 and 4

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

Race 6: 7, 1 and 10

Race 7: 6, 12 and 2

Race 8: 5 with 1 and 3

Race 9: 11, 10 and 5
