Wednesday Quick Pick 3

At Belmont today, let's try the early Pick 3 (Races 1-3).

In Race 1, Colassal Gift (4-1) gets our money. Rick Dutrow, with latest appeal denied, keeps plowing forward. Colassal Gift has been knocking at the door, being on the board in 7 of 12 tries on the turf.

In Race 2, Fast Filly Fiftyfour Forever (3-1), raced gamely two weeks ago in the Dream Supreme Stakes going 7 furlongs and holding on for 3rd. With the cutback to 6 furlongs here and the main speed look for a wire to wire win.

In Race 3 Book Review (4-5) will get most of the money. Let's stay away from the short price and take a stab with Lady Cohiba (5-1). Also keep an eye on the board for Munnings Sister (8-1). She was 1st in the Dream Supreme Stakes (see above Race 2) and will stretch out here in the One 1/16 mile contest on the Dirt.

Pick 3 Races 1-3 : 2/3/1,3

Thursday Quick Pick

The beautiful weather has awakened me from my blogging slumber of late.

In today's eight race at Belmont, let's place a wager on Mr. Algebra at 15-1 in this 8 horse field for 3 year olds and up going one mile on the Turf in a 25K claimer. After breaking his maiden 4 races back at the spa, Mr. A. treaded into deeper waters, failing to place in 3 straight allowance races. He now drops down and shortens up a bit in distance.

Look for most of the money to flow to the Pletcher entry Caption Webb and the Linda Rice horse English Major who Rice claimed from Pletcher last race back.

We love the drop down angle with Trainer Anthony Quartarolo, who loves to pick his spots and is sporting a a % of 50% at this fall Belmont meet.
