Setting The “Table” At Saratoga (7/23/17)

Jul 23rd, 2017 | By | Category: Saratoga, Today's Picks

Fast and firm for the Sunday card and it looks like the rain will hold off and just affect Monday’s card — decent showing after two days with 4 winners on top out of 21, but best bets are now profitable after getting 7-1 on Penjade yesterday, plus listing lots of doubles and pick 3′s, so let’s see how I do today!

In race 8, Table of Six (#1) is not a win machine, but loves the local course and gets cozy post and has the numbers to break through here at a decent price — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 8 and 12.

In race 11, Chapin (#1) has speed to overcome outside post and goes for crafy turf outfit — key in all multi-race wagers and play an exacta box with #’s 6 and 10.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 5, 3 and 11

Race 2: 7, 4 and 2

Race 3: 3 with 5 and 2

Race 4: 10, 9 and 3

Race 5: 7, 8 and 2

Jul 22nd, 2017 | By | Category: Saratoga, Today's Picks

Fast and firm for the Saturday card — had a great start yesterday with 2 winners in the first 3 races, but the later races were tough and although two best bets ran second, the later races were not good, so I will try and bounce back today!

In race 9, The Grade 3 Sanford, Baffin (#6) looked great winning debut and his daddy liked it up here — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 5 and 1.

In race 8, Penjade (#2) won comeback and gets cozy inside post to sit a good trip and get up out the wire — 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, 2 and 1

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

“Rifle” Fires Best Shot At Saratoga (7/21/17)

Jul 21st, 2017 | By | Category: Saratoga, Today's Picks

They’re…….off at Saratoga!  Fast and firm for opening day of the meet and if today is an indication of how tough handicapping will be here, we are destined for a loooong Summer!  Had a decent Belmont meet, but my best bets, which were so profitable for weeks cooled down considerably over the last few days, so let’s see what happens today and early at the meet.

In race 7, Red Rifle (#6) loves the local surface and last was promising — best number wins this at a decent price.  Key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 2 and 3.

In race 9, Party Boat (#7) goes for very profitable connections and has been pointed for this by crafty trainer — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 3 and 1.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 5, 1 and 2

Race 2: 3, 6 and 1

Race 3: 3, 1 and 5

Race 4: 4, 3 and 8

Race 5: 7, 4 and 9

A “Rockin” Finish At Belmont (7/16/17)

Jul 16th, 2017 | By | Category: Belmont, Today's Picks

Fast and firm for closing day at Belmont — Saratoga less than a week away!  Had 3 winners on top yesterday, but it wasn’t a great day, so let’s see if we can go out with a bang.  Keep in mind that the Ortiz brothers are still battling for the jockey title, so all of their horses will be live today.

In race 2, Rockin Alli (#11) cuts back and can sit just off the pace and finish here and the price will be right — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 10 and 8.

In race 11: Unbroken Chain (#4) shows up every time and should sit a good stalking trip with Castellano calling the shots — key in all late multi-race wagers and play an exacta box with #’s 1 and 9.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!  I will be trying to handicap as many cards as possible at Saratoga, so keep checking he site all meet for my picks!

Race 1: 4, 1 and 2

Race 2: 11 (Best Bet) with 10 and 8

Race 3: 1, 5 and 7
