Expecting So Much “More” At Belmont (6/8/18)

Jun 8th, 2018 | By | Category: Belmont, Today's Picks

Fast and firm for the stakes packed 11-race card on the day before the Belmont Stakes — not a great day at all yesterday and it reminds me that handicapping is not easy,  However, historically, I have my best days when the racing is the most competitive, so let’s revisit after tomorrow to see what transpired.

In race 8, The grade 2 True North, Whitmore (#8) gets a race loaded with speed and can run these down if able to stay close enough early — price will be right.  Key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 3 and 2.

In race 4, Dowse’s Beach (#4) cuts back to sprint after comeback and may revert to stalking tactics in a turf event packed with speed — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 3 and 8.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 4, 8 and 7

Race 2: 13 (Best Bet) with 6 and 7 (use 2 if 13 scratches)

Race 3: 6, 2 and 8

Race 4: 5 (Best Bet) with 3 and 8

Race 5: 7, 2 and 6

Race 6: 8, 6 and 1

Race 7: 12, 8 and 9

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

Race 9: 8, 5 and 2

Race 10: 5, 8 and 1

Race 11: 5, 7 and 2



Things Are “Looking Up” At Belmont (6/7/18)

Jun 7th, 2018 | By | Category: Belmont, Today's Picks

Fast and firm for a very good 9 race card beginning the countdown to the Belmont Stakes on Saturday.  I have been coming around to my better handicapping form the last few times I have handicapped here, so let’s see how I do today!

In race 6, The Astoria, Eyeinthesky (#3) showed a great stalking gear in debut and gets a wicked pace to set up late move here — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 1 and 7.

In race 7, The Grade 3 Intercontinental, Delectation (#7) goes for red hot connections and the comeback race was a real useful tightener for the added ground today — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 10 and 4.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 5, 4 and 3

Race 2: 5, 2 and 1

Race 3: 5, 3 and 8

Race 4: 6, 4 and 8

Race 5: 8 (Best Bet) with 2 and 11

Race 7: 7 (Best Bet) with 10 and 4

Race 8: 6, 8 and 5

Race 9: 10, 5 and 4



An “Unforeseeable” Winner At Belmont (6/3/18)

Jun 3rd, 2018 | By | Category: Belmont, Today's Picks

Fast and firm for the Sunday card — came back to life with 4 winners on top yesterday ( including my best bet), so let’s see if I can keep it up today!

In race 9, Unforeseeable (#12) needed last and fits with these — adds blinkers and Castellano for the money run.  Key in all late multi-race wagers and play an exacta box with #’s 5 and 6.

In race 2, Zeven (#12) got cooked in a torrid speed duel in return, but meets a field without much pace today and could wire them — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 5 and 3.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 6, 4 and 3

Race 2: 12 (Best Bet) with 5 and 3

Race 3: 5, 6 and 3

Race 4: 4, 2 and 1

Race 5: 6, 9 and 8

Race 6: 10, 6 and 5

Race 7: 1, 6 and 5

Race 8: 3, 6 and 1

Race 9: 12 (Best Bet) with 5 and 6

Fast and firm for the Saturday card — looks like they will get the card in without major weather issues, so play accordingly!

In race 4, Converge (#2) gets Rudy and a cozy rail post — should come back running, but probably will be the favorite.  Key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 8 and 12.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 1, 6 and 8
