Going “Nutz” At Belmont (6/9/19)

Jun 9th, 2019 | By | Category: Belmont, Today's Picks

Fast and firm for the Sunday card — what a day yesterday for the Belmont: listed 12 winners, 3 on top (including the Belmont winner at 10-1) and listed all the running doubles, pick 3′s, pick 4′s, pick 5′s and the $36,000 pick 6.  The best pick I made didn’t even win — it was my second choice in race 8 that blew up the toteboard given some heavy favorites who won.  Anyway, back to earth today, so let’s see how I do.

In race 8, Nutzforboltz (#7) will be a big price and ran his best race off similar layoff last time and lures Ortiz — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play across the board, plus in an exacta box with #’s 5 and 1.

In race 6, Bold Daddy (#8) cuts back for crafty turf sprint trainer and will also be a decent price — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 6 and 5.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 5, 6 and 4

Race 2: 5, 8 and 6

Race 3: 3, 1 and 4

Race 4: 7, 8 and 1

Race 5: 5, 9 and 8

Race 6: 8 (Best Bet) with 6 and 5

Race 7: 6 (Best Bet) with 5 and 3

Race 8: 7 (Best Bet) with 5 and 1

Race 9: 2, 4 and 3

Race 10: 4, 1 and 9



“Bruce” Springs Upset At Belmont (6/8/19)

Jun 8th, 2019 | By | Category: Belmont, Today's Picks, Triple Crown

Fast and firm for the Belmont Stakes card — a tremendous 13-race extravaganza with grade 1′s galore (including the Met Mile which could be the best race of the year>  A clear inside speed bias on main track yesterday which played havoc with my picks. Only one winner on top and not much else, so let’s see what I can do today to atone!

In race 10, The grade 1 Manhattan, Robert the Bruce (#3) is one of 3 for Chad Brown and you can throw out last two on soft courses which he despises — back on firm course today and a 5-1 price is an absolute gift, call to upset Bricks and Mortar (#8) who may be the best turf horse in the country and always needs racing luck with his late run — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 4 and 8.

In race 9, The Grade 1 Metropolitan Mile, Firenze Fire (#7) is an absolute monster at Belmont and should sit an absolutely perfect trip right behind a brutal pace and hold off the closers late — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 3 and 4.

In race 11, The Grade 1 Belmont Stakes, Sir Winston (#7) is bred to run all day and his Peter Pan showed he is in good form and likes Belmont — call to post upset in tough race — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 3 and 10.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 3, 6 and 1

Race 2: 2, 4 and 9

Race 3: 5 with 6 and 4

Race 4: 6, 4 and 1

Race 5: 4, 1 and 2

Race 8: 11, 8 and 1

Race 9: 7 (Best Bet) with 3 and 4

Race 10: 3 (Best Bet) with 4 and 8

Race 11: 7, 3 and 10

Jun 7th, 2019 | By | Category: Belmont, Today's Picks

Fast and firm for an incredible 11-race card on the day before the Belmont Stakes — only 1 winner on top yesterday, but we beat the 1-9 shot and listed some nice exactas, but need to do better today.

In race 8, the Grade 2 True North, Whitmore (#7) should absolutely win this with a nice stalking trip behind all the speed, but demand value because he may not be the same horse this year — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 8 and 2.

In race 10, The grade 2 Belmont Gold Cup, Canessar (#9) can run all day and Rosario is a big upgrade — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 6 and 5.   Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 2: 8, 7 and 4

“Broadway’s” Great Performance At Belmont (6/6/19)

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

Fast and firm for the Thursday card at Belmont – the beginning of a great 4 days of racing.  Looks like Friday and Saturday should be great weather, so let’s hope the rain is minimal on Thursday and the late post time allows all races to remain on the turf.  I will update with changes if the races come off the turf.

In race 8, Broadway Run (#9) just missed to Fire Key in last and should close into much stronger fractions and gets the extra furlong today for the money run — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 8 and 2.

In race 7, Ms Headley (#9) stalked and took over at will in debut for top 2-year old trainer and Irad sticks — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 3 and 2.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!
