Belmont Park Saturday NY showcase day

Had a good day yesterday not only on the site but here as well which has been rare. Seems like this forum had been my cryptonite for a while but maybe  that is in the  rear view now.

A great card today and here are a few plays .
As always you can see all my analysis and selections at

Race 3
9 Pinball - Turf  to dirt and second time out for Bill Mott One  of my favorite angles.

Race 5
1 Laila's Jazz - 10-1 ML and has won both of her career starts.

Race 8
5 Carameaway and 9 Heidis Holiday. I am boxing these two in what would be a nice priced exacta.

Race 10
5 Lubash - Since going over to Clement this horse has awoken to be a monster after switching running styles to be a closer.

Good luck  and hit them hard.

Belmont Park Friday Plays

Yesterdays trio of  mediocrity did not help the cause. In Ramon I trust today.
Belmont  Park Race 2
1 Thicker than water - great name for a horse about to run on a terribly sloppy race track. Ramon jumps off the highly overbet Montana native to ride for Dutrow aboard thsi 250K purchase.

Race 1 Double
3/9 with 1

Belmont Thursday Plays

Race 4
4 Yara - 30-1 ML probably is way off the mark but this one has been in G1 company and way overmatched against Questing and Contested. Owns a win against Grace Hall this filly is well bred and well intended. Gets a layoff and a :47 workout on the way back to the track.
Will play WP and n3,4,5 box in exacta and triple as well

Race 5
7 I Dreamt i Was-Asmussen and Castellano listed at 6-1 ML Big drop in class and likes this turf course.

Race 9
8 See Me Proud - Last time on the turf this one lost by 1 length to King David who came back to win the Jamaica handicap at a huge price.

As always you can find all of my picks and analysis at

Good luck and hit them hard.

Belmont Sunday Plays

Yesterdays Pick 4 was doomed after  from the start. Bounced out in opening leg when la Cloche ran first. My 3 ran 2nd 3rd and 4th including Embarr who ran 2nd at 20-1.  Just a few horses i like today  As always you can see all my picks on

Race 4
5 Big Blue Nation - D Tiger primed to bounce after earning that big beyer all alone on the front last time out. Other speeds in here. If and when race falls apart this one will cruise on by.

Race 6
Flirtatious Spring - This one made up ground last time and closed well into :25  and  nearly :50 splits. 3 rd off a layoff  max effort today.

Race 4 Pick 3

Belmont Park Friday plays

Yesterday was a tremendous day on the website. if you saw my picks and used any of them I hope you cashed as well as I did. Nice amount of coin to bankroll the weekend.  As always all of my picks can be found on

Race 3
4 Quiet favorite-With a clean trip this one has a shot at a nice price. Likes the distance and has faced tougher.

Race 7
7 Upgrade - He won the Jaspur here at Belmont at 7F.  Then raced against the likes of monster horse Wise Dan. Back to a sensible level of competition.
also 2,6,7 exacta and trifecta box

Race 8
Caron Hall- Trainer off claim is huge. Speed from an inside post is also a plus. If he can get this distance this one may be live at a nice price.

Good luck and hit them hard today.

Belmont Park Columbus Day plays

Well the last week has not been that kind to me. Main track only's and off the turf events have really beat me up good. Everyone goes through streaks of bad luck but I am going to change that today. I am headed to Belmont in a few minutes and looking to recoup some cash.
I see a few things I like today.

Race 1
1,3,14 exacta and trifecta box

Race 2
7 Surprise Strike

Race 3
1,3,6 exacta and trifecta box
 I am making money today.

As always you can catch all of my analysis for the NYRA circuit on good luck and hit them hard.

All picks are up on

Belmont Park Saturday Plays

Yesterday  was terrible . I  hit pick 3 in first three races for $201 on a dollar ( on website) but the two I  gave  out here, as well as everything after that pick 3 score were useless. 
Here are a few for Saturdays card now because I will be gone all day tomorrow. Football game to coach and apple picking with wife and kids after that. Check out for all my picks .Good luck and hit them hard .
Race 3
2B Transparent - if he runs could be tough for McLaughlin . This one set pace on ultra hyped ArchEarrior last time out.

Race 8 
7 Micromanage - doesn't say it in PPs but this one broke dead last and then Circled field to  win by open lengths.

Race 9
7 Howe Great -  just missed winning the DelMar derby last out against MyBest Brother. Will be square price as vulnerable Dullahan gets over bet.

Belmont park Friday plays

Yesterday Indy's Illusion won at $3.70 and Bigger is Bettor ran second and paid $3.60 Finally get a grass race back at Belmont after all this rain in NY. Lets see if we can cash a few here.

Race 5
4,5,7 tri and exacta box. I think that Coconut Shrimp the heavy favorite could get beat here. The 5 Sensational Appeal could be closing late and the 7 Discreet Marq just may be quicker than all of these.

Race 8
2 Cheechako - Some horses just love the one turn route races at Belmont. This one broke maiden last time out running 1 mile and one turn here. Steps up in class and will be a nice price. Lezcano jumps off logical contender Flashy American to ride this one

All of my picks and analysis are available on check out the site if you get a chance.

Belmont Park Thursday Plays

1 out of 3 of my plays won yesterday One never ran a step and the other got squeezed at the start and ended up 3rd. The track has come up muddy and off the turf again so we will be probably sitting on another chalk fest today.

Race  3
2 7 exacta box - I think the race sets up well for both of thses horses with the 2 running against much better company and the 7 getting a more favorable setup from off the pace.

Race 4
13 Indy's Illusion - You may not get much of a price now that Delhomme has scratched out but the string of bullet works leading up to this looks good.

Race 5
8 Bigger Is Bettor - Brigand will be tough at 4/5 but this one is a value play at 6/1 morning line. This one has run very well both times on an off track.

As always all of my picks and analysis can be found on my free site

Belmont Wednesday Plays

Belmont Race 4
3 Ampa's Girl - I was going to bet this one if it stayed on the turf but may even have better shot here in the slop. Debut in the off going was a good one and she missed by a neck then came back and ran poorly om turf but this one was hung wide on both turns that day and with a cleaner tripand an inside post this one could wire the field. The 12 will be a heavy favorite and may not like the slop.  That ones first start was at Saratoga  and lost by 9 lengths on a sloppy track that day.

Belmont Race 7
7 Cinematize - Not sure of the price you will get on this one but anything around the 3-1 ML is good for me. There is a ton of speed in here and Ramon will have this one relaxed and ready to roll at the top of the stretch.

Good luck everyone even you Gambler 3156485769657594

Belmont Park Sunday Plays

Fun day at the track yesterday . I had a bunch of winners on the site as well as the two I gave out here. Won the 2nd bet by default when entry Lumber Guy won and not Sean Avery but a wins a win. My 5 year old son had $2 on Ground Force who paid $100 on that $2 to win.  If you checked the site my $36 Pick 4 play returned $176 so it was a good day all around.
A couple for today , check out for all my selections.
All of these I will be playing $20 WP

Race 4
1 Cinnamon Beach- Re-Claim by Phillip Scott this one beat the likely favorite  last time they were on turf.  5-1 ML

Race 8
2 Princess Sinnead - European horse who will like the turf with some give. Scratched out of a similar spot last week.

Race 9
7 Weekend Hideaway - the 1 will take plenty of money with that 90 Beyer first time out, but this one has won by open lengths in his last two starts including an overnight stakes.

Good luck and hit them hard.

Had the day off yesterday since NYRA cancelled the Friday card. 3 plays I gave out Thursday Praetorian Guard (36-1) ran third, Carey Princess (9-1) ran third and Centrique (5-2) won.

Race 2
9 Stormy Len - Dominguez Jumps off ML favorite for this David Donk trainee with some bullet works. 
Race 7
1 Sean Avery - this ones return to the race track was not fast on paper but got the job done. Strictly a prep for this to punch ticket to BC Sprint

Race 8
8 Forever Vow- finished 2nd in last and the winner of that one came back to win convincingly while stepping up in class last week

Belmont Friday Plays

So evidently some people just love to hate for no reason at all. A couple of "experts" on here have took exception to me and a couple others who have been posting in this forum.
 Here's the deal. I love horse racing. I started a FREE handicapping website in which I analyze the NYRA circuit on a daily basis and give my take on each race. I have used covers for 7 years or so and thought that this forum might be able to get me some more traffic for my site That's right horse boogers. It's free its light hearted and if you check it out maybe i have seen something you missed and we can cash some tickets. 
     I will have my picks for today around 1PM. Check them out, check out the site. If you think I'm a hack so be it but at least see for yourself before you listen to others who make ignorant assumptions.
