“Valetictorian” Speaks Volumes At Monmouth (7/20/19)

Jul 20th, 2019 | By | Category: Monmouth, Today's Picks

Fast and firm for the impressive 14-race card on Haskell Day — all eyes will be here because of the weather woes at Saratoga, so let’s see how I do today!

In race 11, The Grade 3 Matchmaker, Valedictorian (#3) loves the local sod, is the main speed and will be the second choice because of the Brown entrant — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 2 and 6.

In race 9, Tricks to Doo (#5) has faced some tough ones lately and should beat this field if runs to top figure — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 8 and 4.

In race 7, Freedom Matters (#5) has good tactical speed and should wear these down late — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 7 and 4. In the Haskell, there so much speed signed on that I fear Maximum Security (#7) is very vulnerable as the favorite so I took a flyer with Everfast (#6) to run them down at a price.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 7, 1 and 8

Race 2: 8, 2 and 4

Race 3: 2 (Best Bet) with 4 and 5

Race 4: 5, 6 and 2

Race 5: 6, 4 and 1

Race 6: 7, 5 and 2

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

Race 8: 3 with 7 and 2

Race 9: 5 (Best Bet) with 8 and 4

Race 10: 4, 3 and 2

Race 11: 3 (Best Bet) with 2 and 6

Race 12: 6, 5 and 1

Race 13: 8, 5 and 3

Race 14: 3, 5 and 6



Putting Things In “Motion” At Monmouth (7/29/18)

Jul 29th, 2018 | By | Category: Monmouth, Today's Picks

Fast and firm for the incredible Haskell Day card with 14 great races on tap, so let’s see how I do today focusing on many Graham Motion horses!

In race 10, the Grade 3 Molly Pitcher, Berned (#8) meets easier here, loves the local surface and should get a great trip right off the speed — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 7 and 6.

In race 7,  The grade 3 Oceanport, Synchrony (#2) has absolutely no excuse here and would be a steal at 2-1.  Key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 3 and 7.

In race 12, The Grade 1 Haskell, Good Magic (#6) should win, but I have feeling we might see a mild upset here.  So, I am going with Lone Sailor (#1) who gets a cozy inside post and may be getting to a peak performance at a good price — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 4 and 6.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Fast and firm for the Saturday card — not the best card here, but I have enjoyed handicapping over the last several weeks, so let’s see how I do today.

Fast and firm for the Sunday card — 4 winners on top yesterday, but they were short prices and the card today is not really that interesting, but let’s see how we do today!

In race 8, Sindarius (#3) ran too good to lose in debut and should graduate with a clean trip here — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 5 and 6.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!
