“Rushing” To The Winner’s Circle On Day 1 Of Breeders Cup At Del Mar (11/3/17)

Nov 3rd, 2017 | By | Category: Breeders Cup, Today's Picks

Fast and firm for Day 1 of the Breeders Cup — so far, the main track is playing kindly to front runners and the turf course is playing fairly, so take that into consideration as you make your wagers today.  The undercard is very good  also, so it should be a fantastic day of racing!

In race 6, The Grade 1 BC Juvenile Fillies Turf, Rushing Fall (#11) has tough post, but her first two starts could be compared to Lady Eli and Chad Brown has done very well in this race — a clean trip sets up powerful late run and I will gladly take 3-1 here.  Key in all doubles, pick 3′s and pick 4 and play an exacta box with #’s 2, 9 and 8.

In race 9, The Grade 1 BC Juvenile Turf, Encumbered (#9) wanted nothing to do with dirt against monsters in last and has run great in two starts on Del Mar turf course — against a number of capable Euros, but the price will be too good to pass up.  Key in all doubles and pick 3′s, play across the board and play an exacta box with #’s 1, 6 and 7.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 6, 7 and 5

Race 2: 2 with 6 and 11

Race 3: 3, 2 and 1

Race 4: 6, 7 and 3

Race 5: 3, 7 and 1

Race 6: 11 (Best Bet) with 2, 9 and 8

Race 7: 8, 10, and 6

Race 8: 9 (Best Bet) with 1, 6 and 7

Race 9: 6, 2 and 5

Race 10: 9 (Best Bet) with 10 and 2

 



Hoping To Win “A Lot” At The Breeders Cup (11/5/16)

Nov 5th, 2016 | By | Category: Breeders Cup, Today's Picks

Fast and firm for day 2 of the Breeders Cup — a great day of racing yesterday with Beholder going out on top and Songbird running valiantly but falling short.  On a personal note, I listed 3 winners out of the 4 BC races, at 7-1 winner on top in race 8, plus a $100 exacta in the dirt mile and $1,000 pick 3 in races 7-9, so let’s see how I do today!

In race 7 , The Turf Sprint. A Lot (#9) cuts back from great race in last against Tourist and should sit about 5 lengths off the lead and run these down late at a decent price — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 5 and 14.

In race 8, The Grade 1 Juvenile, Klimt (#1) had no chance catching lone speed in last and gets cozy inside post and much faster pace to sit and finish this time at a much better price — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 10 and 11.

In race 11, The Grade 1 Turf Mile, Ironicus (#9) closed like a rocket in return against a slow pace and should be flying late again with a much better pace scenario here and will be 5-1 or better — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 10 and 8.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 3, 4 and 10

Race 2: 4, 2 and 8

Race 3: 12, 13 and 3

Race 4: 3 with 5 and 11

Race 5: 3, 8 and 1

Race 6: 9, 5 and 1

Race 7: 9 (Best Bet) with 14 and 2

Race 8: 1 (Best Bet) with 10 and 11

Race 9: 12 with 10 and 4

Race 10: 3, 12 and 9

Race 11: 9 (Best Bet) with 10 and 8

Race 12: 9, 4 and 6

 



Hoping For A “Big Score” At The Breeder’s Cup (11/4/16)

Nov 4th, 2016 | By | Category: Breeders Cup, Today's Picks

Fast and firm for day 1 of the Breeder’s Cup at Santa Anita.  I haven’t been so excited in a long time, because so many horses opted for their second choices, so there is intrigue in race after race.  Let’s hope there is no pronounced speed bias and that the track is kind so runners can win from anywhere on the track.  Keep your options open if a bias does appear and make sure you have a key horse in one or two races so you can single and then spread more in other races.  You should also try and beat a couple of the big favorites over the next two days — I think Songbird is the most likely beaten favorite and maybe Tepin — so let’s see how things play out!

In race 6, The Grade 1 Juvenile Turf, Big Score (#6) looked great in big win here in last and got a top figure — Euros not all that impressive in here and the race flow should favor closers.  Key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 11 and 1.

In race 7, The Grade 1 Dirt Mile, Gun Runner (#9) has tricky post, but should sit about 5 lengths off a very fast pact set by Run Happy (#7) and Dortmund (#3) and have enough bottom on the cut back to run them down late at a decent price.  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:  8, 6 and 5

Race 2: 3, 12 and 5

Race 3: 8, 4 and 1

Race 4: 6,8 and 3

Race 5: 9, 8 and 4

Race 6: 6 (Best Bet) with 11 and 1

Race 7: 9 (Best Bet) with 8 and 3

Race 8: 3, 14 and 1

Race 9: 6, 5 and 8

Race 10: 4, 5 and 1

 

 



“Green” Is Money At Keeneland (10/31/15)

Oct 31st, 2015 | By | Category: Breeders Cup, Keeneland, Today's Picks

Fast and good for Breeders Cup Classic Day at Keeneland.  Only one winner on top on day 1, but my top choices ran second 3 times, including a tough beat with my best bet in race 6.  I did tout Casse’s horses and they both ran great.  Let’s see if I can have a better day and pick a few winners.

In race 9, The Grade 1 Breeders Cup Juvenile, Greenpoint Crusader (#3) goes for a low profile trainer, but this 2-year old may be the best of his generation by far given his great performance in the Champagne and should handle two turns just fine and run down the speed — I will be happy with 3-1.  Key in all doubles, pick 3′s and pick 4′s and play an exacta box with #’s 5 and 1.

In race 4, The Grade 1 Breeders Cup Turf Sprint, No Silent (#9) has been a new animal after being gelded 3 races back and has the perfect running style to sit a great trip here and will be a great price — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 3 and 11.

In race 7, The Grade 1 Breeders Cup Sprint, Salutos Amigos (#10) came to life in The Vosburgh and has the right style to come and get these late at a big price — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 13 annd 5.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 2 with 9 and  8

Race 2:  5, 10 and 4

Race 3: 2, 7 and 9

Race 4: 9 (Best Bet) with 3 and 11

Race 5: 2 with 5 and 14

Race 6: 5, 3 and 12

Race 7: 10 (Best Bet) with 13 and 5

Race 8: 10, 4 and 1

Race 9: 3 (Best Bet) with 5 and 1

Race 10: 7, 1 and 9

Race 11: 4, 1 and 3

Race 12: 8, 6 and 4
