Making A “Bid” At Keeneland (4/18/21)

Apr 18th, 2021 | By | Category: Keeneland, Today's Picks

Fast and good for the Sunday card — another good day yesterday listing both pick 4′s and the early pick 5; only 2 winners on top, but my best bet scored at 5-2, so let’s see if we can keep it up today!

In race 3, Catch a Bid (#3) cuts back to turf sprint, but has been working like she can stay close enough and make a late run here — key in all  doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 5 and 1.

In race 5, Hat Trip (#8) had troubled trip in last and gets enough pace to set up late run with a clear path — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 6 and 3.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 7, 5 and 1

Race 2: 2, 5 and 4

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

Race 4: 7, 1 and 2B

Apr 17th, 2021 | By | Category: Keeneland, Today's Picks

Fast and good for the Saturday card — hope to build on last Sunday’s great day having 7 winners on top (all 3 best bets won) and had 5 in a row up to the last race, which was the first time in all my years handicapping that I almost picked a cold pick 6!  Let’s see what happens today.

In race 9, The Grade 2 Elkhorn, Say the Word (#2) has faced some good ones lately and finally gets a fast pace with a cozy inside post to save ground and run down the leaders late — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 10 and 7.

In race 5, Summer Place (#4) was claimed by “Sharp” outfit and steps up with Saez riding — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 5 and 9.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 2, 5 and 6

Race 2: 5, 2 and 3

Race 3: 6, 9 and 10

Race 4: 4, 10 and 1

Joining The “Club” At Keeneland (4/11/21)

Apr 11th, 2021 | By | Category: Keeneland, Today's Picks

Sloppy and yielding for the Sunday card — good day here yesterday with 3 winners on top, but my best pick was a 15-1 shot best bet that just missed and was part of a $430 exacta!  At Oaklawn, I listed 8 exacta boxes and my 12-1 shot was nosed out in race 3, so back to just Keeneland today!

In race 8, Club Car (#4) loves the local surface and the slop — gets a brutal pace to set up late run.  Key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 2 and 1.

In race 4, Fairchild (#3) had wide trip in last and is poised to break maiden with better post here — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 7 and 5.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 4, 3 and 6

Race 2: 5, 6 and 4

Race 3: 7, 8 and 3

Race 4: 3 (Best Bet) with 7 and 5

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

Race 6: 10, 6 and 3

Race 7: 6, 8 and 2

Race 8: 4 (Best Bet) with 2 and 1

High On The “Hog” At Keeneland (4/3/21)

Apr 3rd, 2021 | By | Category: Keeneland, Today's Picks

Fast and firm for the first Saturday card of the Spring meet — looking forward to handicapping here because it’s a place I have done well over the years, but the recent Breeder’s Cup was hard to take, so I will try and handicap my way past the disappointment and that starts today!

In race 7, the Grade 3 Commonwealth, Hog Creek Hustle (#7) gets a brutal pace to set up late run and this is his best distance — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 1 and 5.

In race 8, the Grade 2 Shakertown, Imprimis (#2) will love closing into torrid first fractions in this turf sprint and will get up in time if a good trip presents itself — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 7 and 13.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 4, 5 and 1

Race 2: 7, 5 and 2

Race 3: 10 (Best Bet) with 5 and 6

Race 4: 7, 1 and 11

Race 5: 9, 8 and 7
