Feeling A “Draft” At Churchill (6/29/19)

Jun 29th, 2019 | By | Category: Churchill, Today's Picks

Fast and firm for the Saturday card — it’s closing day and the Belmont card is terrible, so I thought I would add on Churchill today (one of my best handicapping tracks).

In race 9, Undrafted (#2) loves the local sod, had useful comeback race and Lanerie has won last two times he was aboard — enough speed to get up in last jumps at 7-2 or so.  Key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 8 and 12.

In race 7, St. Denman (#3) had excuse in last and moves inside — Tyler rides well for this trainer and can win this from mid-pack at a decent price.  Key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s8 and 4.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 6, 2 and 1

Race 2: 5, 2 and 6

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

Race 4: 5, 6 and 7

Race 5: 5, 10 and 3

Race 6: 1 with 9 and 6

Race 7: 2 (Best Bet) with 8 and 4

Race 8: 1, 7 and 4

Race 9: 2 (Best Bet) with 8 and 12

Race 10: 2, 7 and 3

Race 11: 4 (Best Bet) with 10 and 1

Race 12: 5, 4 and 6



Passing “Inspection” At Churchill (6/15/19)

Jun 15th, 2019 | By | Category: Churchill, Today's Picks

Fast and firm for the fantastic Stephen Foster card with several stakes on the menu — be careful about the weather since thunderstorms are in the forecast starting right at the 6pm hour, so see if track conditions change or any races are taken off the turf.

In race 6, The Grade 2 Wise Dan, Inspector Lynley (#9) had tough trip in last at Pimlico and should show usual late burst in turf race with a lot of speed signed on — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 7 and 3.

In race 3, Loose On the Town (#2) definitely needed return race and should sit a perfect stalking trip here — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 6 and 4.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 12, 3 and 5

Race 2: 4, 1 and 8

Race 3: 2 (Best Bet) with 6 and 4

Race 4: 7, 3 and 9

Race 5: 2, 6 and 1

Race 6: 9 (Best Bet) with 7 and 3

Race 7: 5, 2 and 3

Race 8: 4 (Best Bet) with 1 and 7

Race 9: 5 (Best Bet) with 1 and 11

Race 10: 6, 7 and 5

Race 11: 5, 9 and 12



Jumping On The “Ledge” On Derby Day At Churchill (5/4/19)

May 4th, 2019 | By | Category: Churchill, Today's Picks, Triple Crown

Fast and firm for the big Saturday card, but there is rain in forecast late in the day so keep a close eye on on the track conditions prior to the Derby.  Decent day yesterday with 7 winners listed, 3 on top (with a flat bet profit) and a $185 pick 3, so I will try and keep it up today.  Rooting against Chad Brown’s horses, so if he has a big day, I’m screwed!

In race 7, The Grade 2 Distaff Turf Mile, Procter’s Ledge (#3) ran great in return and has faced some of the best competition around and held her own — likes this track and will be flying late at a decent price.  Key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 6 and 9.

In race 11, The Grade 1 Turf classic, Synchrony (#9) ran 3rd in this race last year and just missed against the favorite in last and adds blinkers for the money run at a decent price — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 1 and 12.

In race 12, The Grade 1 Kentucky Derby, By My Standards (#3) is rapidly improving off Louisiana Derby win, can sit 5 lengths off a decent pace and get a great inside trip to post the upset at 12-1 or so — I am using him and Game Winner (#16) who ran his best race here at Churchill on top with #’s 6, 5, 8, 7 and 17 in my exactas, trifectas and supers!  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 3, 4 and 2

Race 2: 4, 6 and 1A

Race 3: 4, 1 and 6

Race 4: 2, 9 and 4

Race 5: 2, 6 and 12

Race 7: 3 (Best Bet) with 6 and 9

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

Race 9: 2 (Best Bet) with 5 and 1

Race 10: 14, 10 and 11

Race 11: 9 (Best Bet) with 1 and 12

Race 12: 3, 16 with 5, 6, 7, 8 and 17

Race 13: 6, 1 and 10

Race 14: 7, 1 and 2



Feeling “Blue” On Oaks Day At Churchill (5/3/19)

May 3rd, 2019 | By | Category: Churchill, Today's Picks

Sloppy and good with races 1 and 4 off the turf — the weather may be a big problem this weekend with more rain in the forecast on Derby Day, but still great days of racing ahead so let’s make the best of it!

In race 8, The Grade 1 La Troien, Blue Prize (#2) has knocked heads with the best of her generation and now gets a favorable post on a track she loves — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 3 and 1.

In race 13, Aymara (#11) goes turf to dirt and cuts back to sprint off a promising turf debut — Mott knows what he’s doing and puts blinkers on to get her in the race sooner — key in all late multi-race wagers and play an exacta box with #’s 5 and 8.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

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