Free Pick4win.com Sunday Horse Pick for the Canadian International at Woodbine

OK,

After a dismal afternoon on Saturday where longshots were blowing up the tote, my selections just didn't match up with the winners yesterday. But today is a new day.

For Sunday, I have completely handicapped Belmont races 6-10, Keeneland races 5-9, plus the stakes from Woodbine races 6,8,&10. There are some very interesting turf races today, and I'm looking forward to taking advantage of some good prices this afternoon. I really like a good priced horse to blow up the Pick5 & Pick4 at Keeneland plus another at Belmont who will anchor our plays in their turf marathon feature.

I'm feeling very good about a strong day today, lets cash some tickets.

Visit Pick4win.com to purchase today's selecions.

For today's Free Pick ~

Woodbine race 6 - #7 HILLSTAR - one of today's Best Bets, yep, you read that correctly. This Danehill Dancer colt comes in for Sir Michael Stoute, one of the finest ship in trainers in all the world. He has been 1st or 2nd in his last four starts including a 2nd to a very interesting horse for the BC Turf, Telescope, for the same trainer. Seems he's split his stars with this one running here. I think he wins for fun getting Lasix for the 1st time.

The very best of luck!

Free Pick4win.com Belmont Horse Pick for Saturday 10/18

OK,

We had a decent day yesterday as all the money and more was made back as my Best bet of the Day, who was 30/1 on the Morning Line won off very easily in the stake at Keeneland. She came up in my stable mail with my comment "looks like a turf freak", and she proved once again, my eye for turfers is unmatched.

Keeneland race 9 - #13 Sparkling Review - $16.80 $9.40 & $6.80.

For Saturday, I have races 4-10 from Keeneland plus races 6-10 from Belmont Park completely handicapped with Pick5, Pick4, and Pick3 wagers suggested. Some very nice races today, some juicy turf winners should produce some great multi-race payoffs.

Visit Pick4win.com to purchase today's selections.

For Saturday's Free Pick  ~

Belmont race 7 - #1A CARAMEAWAY - this Mitch Friedman trained filly has returned to the races with two big efforts since late summer. She continues to train exceptionally well, loves the distance, and with only one horse to beat, should be the boss of these.

The very best of luck.

Free Pick4win.com Friday Horse Pick from Keeneland

OK,

A nice week last week for Pick4win players plus I also selected 3 Free Pick Winners until getting no run from Monday's selection.

But Friday brings new adventure and some very interesting turf races. I have completely handicapped Keeneland races 6-10 and Belmont Park 6-9 with Pick5, Pick4, and Pick3 wagers suggested.

Visit Pick4win.com to purchase today's selections or get your Weekend Pass.

For Friday's Free Pick ~

Keeneland race 6 - #7 STORMY ROCIT - this Stormy Atlantic gelding ships in off a big work over the Oklahoma Training track and looks ready to roll for George Weaver. Joel Rosario stays aboard and should be able to control the race with his speed, either taking the lead or stalking whoever else may try for it. Anywhere near the 6/1 morning line would be a gift.

The very best of luck.

Free Pick4win.com Monday Horse Pick from Belmont

OK,

It's a holiday today, so I threw up some selections on the website in case you have a few minutes to play today. We went 3/3 over the weekend with Free Picks, looking to extend that streak today.

If you purchased Pick4win selections over the weekend, log into your account as today's selections are free for you.

If you purchase today's selections, I'll also give you this Friday for FREE.

Visit Pick4win.com to purchase today's selections.

For Monday's Free Pick ~

Belmont race 2 - #2 PECORINO - this Afleet Alex gelding has never been off the board in seven starts, all on dirt. Today marks his turf debut for Linda Rice, and there really is no better trainer out there who handles her turf sprinters with the aplomb that Linda does. Should have no problems making his first turf start a winning one.

The very best of luck.

Free Pick4win.com Sunday Horse Pick from Keeneland

OK,

Great day for Pick4win.com players yesterday as I tabbed 5 Top Pick winners including 3 in a row at Belmont helping us cash the $420 late Pick4.

I have very high aspirations for today. I have a few strong opinions on long shots that if they can run as I see them, we will have an extremely rewarding day.

I have completely handicapped Belmont 7-10 + Keeneland 5-9 with Pick5, Pick4, and Pick3 wagers suggested.

Visit Pick4win.com to purchase todays selections.

For Sunday's Free Pick  ~

Keeneland race 5 - #4 SET TO MUSIC - this 3 yr old Dynaformer gelding won his 2nd start last time while getting over the turf for the 1st time. He is training right along, bred to go further, and has a very under-rated but strong turf trainer leading him over. I can see him sitting a trip in the 2nd flight, moving up around the turn, then drawing off down the lane at a solid price.

The very best of luck.

Keeneland race 6 - #6 BITTY KITTY - this Brendan Walsh trained filly is in lifetime best form. She makes her 2nd start off the layoff and just might adore the give in todays turf course. She has only one horse to beat.

The very best of luck.

OK,

With rain overnight and expected today at Keeneland, I stayed with only Belmont Park for today's actions. I may still have some plays this afternoon at Keeneland once they get underway, but those will be tweeted.

For Friday, I have races 4-9 completely handicapped from Belmont with Pick4 and Pick3 wagers included.

Visit Pick4win.com to purchase today's selections.

For Friday's Free Pick ~

Belmont race 8 - #5 ASSET INFLATION - we cashed out last time this horse ran and am looking for much of the same today. This Greeley's Galaxy gelding has won 3 of 4 turf starts and has gotten better with every start. He has one horse to beat today, but should be up for the challenge. Down the road under leading jockey Javy Castellano.

The very best of luck.

The Unbeatable Cigar: My Story

Well,

It was a cold, dark day in October back in 1994,  long before the age of computer wagering so if you didn't venture out of the house, you couldn't wager. I found my way to simulcasting on a daily basis in my youth, (go figure, lol) and this day was no acception. There was nothing that had really caught my eye with prior handicapping, I was just going to bet a few races looking to get lucky.

As the 6th race on October 28 went off, I was watching my horse who would eventually lose. As the field came off the far turn, a horse separated himself from the pack with tremendous ease. As the winner crossed the wire, my jaw was on the floor and the hair on my neck was standing straight up. Never before had I recognized such a brilliant, smooth, and powerful stride where it affected me and every molecule of my existence. I looked around and nobody was paying attention, nobody saw what I saw that day, I saw an absolute monster and had no idea who he was. As I scrambled to see his name in my DRF, the name Cigar was forever burned into my memory.

Starting the next day, I saved every spare dollar I had. I couldn't wait to bet Cigar's next race and was going to have the bank roll to do so. In late November of 1994, the entries came out for the NYRA Mile. I could barely contain my enthusiasm. I bet every cent that I saved on Cigar. My eyes and wallet were generously rewarded with a $21 win, by far the most Cigar ever paid in his life, and I cashed out handsomely. I also cashed out while telling everyone who would listen that he would win the Donn Handicap in 1995 facing the huge favorite Holy Bull. It actually looked like a relay race, as Cigar drew even with Holy Bull, Holy Bull pulled up and Cigar went on to an undefeated season.

The last memory I will share was on the morning of his last workout in Saratoga prior to the Pacific Classic in 1996. I was there. There was 7,500 people there that morning, all to see Cigar, sending him off with tremendous exuberance, until Mary Ryan announced "please don't clap, you may scare the horses". Obviously Mary didn't know 30,000 people attended the races daily, cheering loud and proud, and the horses never blinked an eye. What an awesome experience and I can so relate to the crowds that gathered at Philly Park to watch Smarty Jones train.

All the glee was extinguished with one of the worst rides of Jerry Bailey's career in the Pacific Classic. I remember being in front of the TV saying "what the hell is he doing? He can't win going that fast." Obviously Jerry Bailey thought he was riding a motorcycle that day pushing Cigar into fractions of 45 - 1:09 - 1:33 getting swallowed up by Dare and Go. My seething hatred of Jerry Bailey from that day forward led to many run ins with Jerry as I freely expressed my opinions to him, much to his dismay.

Cigar will always be my favorite horse simply because he raced years prior to Zenyatta. There is no comparison between the two other than every single horse born after they raced will always be in their shadows of greatness.

Free Pick4win.com Sunday Keeneland Horse Pick for 10/5

OK,

A nice day awaits as I have completely handicapped Keeneland races 6-10 plus Belmont Park races 7-11 as they took the early races off the turf at Belmont eliminating two nice wagering opportunities.

But what is left is some great action. I really like the PK and PK4 from Keeneland as there are two grass horses I really like in the sequence. Most people will be singling Close Hatches, I will play one ticket will another just in case. I feel real good about the races I'm playing today.

Visit Pick4win.com to purchase today's selections.

For Sunday's Free Pick ~

Keeneland race 10 - #8 ARCANE - one of my best bets today, this Artie Schiller gelding has shown tremendous ability in his first two starts. He makes his 2nd start off the layoff today after making up serious ground in the uphill stretch at Kentucky Downs. I expect him to relax in mid pack, start moving around the turn, and just blows them away down the lane.

The very best of luck.

Saturday, October 4, 2014

Free Pick4win.com Belmont Horse Pick for Saturday 10/4

OK,

Some rain has affected the weekend races but we have several nice turf wagering opportunities at Keeneland to make up for only one at Belmont.

But its still a very nice day to wager. I have Belmont 6-11 and Keeneland 5-10 completely handicapped with Pick4 and Pick3 wagers suggested.

Visit Pick4win.com to purchase today's selections.

For today's Free Pick ~

Belmont race 7 ~ #15 FIRST BID - this Street Sense gelding made his first start of the Linda Rice claim last out and won off impressively. The track will have plenty of moisture in it to bring out his best. Will be forwardly placed and may go wire to wire.

The very best of luck.

Free Pick4win.com Horse Pick from Keeneland Friday 10/3

OK,

Alright, was excited to get into Keeneland today until they took the races off the turf. I still love the stakes races, so I'll be playing for sure.

For Friday, I have completely handicapped Keeneland races 5-10 plus Belmont 6-9 with Pick4 and Pick3 wagers suggested.

Visit Pick4win.com to purchase today's selections or grab that Weekend Pass as I'll be capping both Keeneland and Belmont all weekend.

For Friday's Free Pick ~

Keeneland race 7 - #4 TAPIT WICKED - this Asmussen trained Tapit baby makes his 2nd lifetime start after showing big speed in his debut. With the promise of a wet track, I expect this one to bust out of the gate and never look back going wire to wire for victory.

Start the weekend off with a winner.

The very best of luck!

Free Pick4win.com Belmont Horse Pick for Sunday 9/28

OK,

Wasn't a good day for me yesterday as it seemed unlikely winner after unlikely winner kept crossing the wire blowing up my tickets. So anyone who purchased Saturday's selections can play today for free, just log into your Member Accounts for today's selections.

Lots of nice races today at Belmont Park as I've completely handicapped races 3-10 with Pick4 and Pick3 wagers suggested, looking to finish the weekend strong. Could be some healthy returns as I see some longer priced horses in the winners circle.

Visit Pick4win.com to purchase today's selections.

For Sunday's Free Pick ~

Belmont race 8 ~ #5 SIOUX - year after year Mike Hushion has horses return off layoffs at Saratoga that are specifically pointed there and they run away and hide like this Awesome Again colt did on August 9th. He returns off a very short freshening with a bullet work in tow, should go wire to wire stretching out to the mile.

The very best of luck.

Free Pick4win.com Horse Pick for Saturday 7/27

OK,

Kind of an indifferent day yesterday as many races didn't fall my way, but moving on to today. we have a spectacular day of Breeders' Cup Prep races from NY to California.

I have races 3-11 at Belmont Park and races 7-10 from Santa Anita completely handicapped with Pick4 and Pick3 wagers suggested.

Looks like it could be another rewarding day for Pick4win players, why not jump on board? I have a few juicy turf horses in NY plus some very interesting selections at Santa Anita.

Visit Pick4win.com to purchase today's selections.

For Saturday's Free Pick ~

Belmont race 6 - #11 TETRADRACHM - this Badge of Silver gelding is coming off a short layoff and drops in against the lowest class of horses yet. He is taking his blinkers off which he has worn at least for his last 12 races, so that move alone should be enough to put him over the top against these, besides Billy Mott strikes at a 28% win clip taking blinkers off. He has a big work without them, should just cruise on past these at a solid price.

The very best of luck.

Friday, September 26, 2014

Free Pick4win.com Friday Belmont Horse Pick

OK,

Another great weekend last week has brought a good sized bank roll into this weekends huge weekend off stakes as it's Breeders' Cup prep time. Will be major stakes on both coasts for eery division. Great weekend for that Weekend Pass.

For Friday I have completely handicapped races 3-9 at Belmont with Pick4 and Pick3 wagers suggested plus Off Turf Picks provided.

Belmont race 7 ~ #7 LUCID - this gelded son of Elusive Quality makes his 2nd lifetime start for Darley and Kairan after enduring a troubled trip in his debut as he was trapped behind a wall of horses down the stretch at Saratoga. He returns today with two sharp works under his belt and has one horse to beat.

The very best of luck.

Free Pick4win.com Sunday Horse Pick from Belmont

OK,

Saturday proved to be my 3rd straight wagering day that was very rewarding to myself and all the Pick4win players. After tabbing a $1076 Pick3 Friday on a $12 wager, I came out swinging again Saturday.

I actually was waking up from a nap having made some wagers beforehand. I opened one eye and saw my horse was 10/1 and to me he should have been 7/2. I bolted to the computer and doubled down on all my wagers. Well, #7 Empty Headed was given an outstanding ride from Mike Luzzi as he sat back about 10 off the leader, was in behind the leaders turning for home, and just found a hole and cruised home an easy winner paying $19.20 $9.20 & 5.70. The favorite and my 2nd choice wins the next race so we are live for nice Pick3's.

Well, my Top Choice scored again in the 7th - #12 Distorted Beauty $12.80 $6.60 & $3.90 and I scored on multiple Pick3 tickets - each one paying $514. We also hit with Best Bet of the Day Artemis Agrotera and the Pick3 paid $66.50 & the cold DD of $23.40. Next race we cashed again as my top 3 horses ran 1-2-3 in different order but we cashed the $31.80 exacta, $96 Pick3, & $142.50 trifecta. We closed the day hitting the Late Pick4 for $432.

So - we are white hot heading into Sunday's action. It doesn't thrill me like the last two days PP's did, but sometimes those days become the most rewarding since I don't feel exceeding strong about any horses. I have Belmont races 4-10 completely handicapped with Pick4 and Pick3 wagers suggested.

Visit Pick4win.com to purchase today's selections.

For Sunday's Free Pick ~

Belmont race 9 - #1 RUMBLE DOLL - looks like my Best Bet of the Day as this Street Boss filly has found her game sprinting on turf. She will find the bigger turns at Belmont more to her liking than Saratoga where she came wide off the far turn in last. She really only has one horse to beat, I expect her to be in back of the pack until they get into the turn, then just tips out and runs past them all down the lane.

The very best of luck.

Saturday, September 20, 2014

Free Pick4win.com Belmont Horse Pick for Saturday 9/20

Alright,

Started off Friday with a nice score. I jumped into the pool in race 3 from Belmont and tabbed the $15 winner right on top - #4 Carameaway and had two Pick3's listed. We hit them both including a very skinny ticket using race 5 winner #5 Which Market as a single. Which Market paid $28.80 $11.60 & 6.90 and each Pick3 paid $1076. The day was all gravy after that.

For Saturday, I see more off the same as it should be another day where longer priced horses rein. The Belmont races set up so well for me today as I found exception value in the turf races. If they fall my way at the wire, those $1076 PK3's from yesterday might look small in comparison. Plus, I have the 'Cheese Stakes' Pick4 from Parx starting in race 9 today, having completely handicapped races 10-12.

Let's cash these tickets today, could be a day we never forget.

Visit Pick4win.com to purchase today's selections.

BELMONT RACE 10 - #5 FIRE AWAY - this extremely well bred Phipps/Shug  horse makes his 2nd start coming off a short freshening. He is a half brother to G1 turf winner Mr Speaker by an exceptional turf sire War Front. He also is adding blinkers today. His 4/1 morning line would be a gift. Down the road.

The very best of luck.

A damp day outside locally as we start our Sunday. Some tickets cashed Saturday gets us into Sunday's action.

Belmont race 6 - #5 STREET SHARK - this Street Sense gelding was reclaimed by Ian Wilkes and promptly won a turf sprint race for fun. He comes back today for a tag dropping in class, goes from turf to dirt which is his preferred surface and seems to only have one horse to beat.

The very best of luck!

Free Pick4win.com Saturday Horse Pick from Belmont Park

OK,

A really nice blend of stakes races dots the countryside in North America today, and I've got some interesting plays throughout. This is Woodbine Mile weekend, while most of those stakes are tomorrow up there, we have the two baby turf stakes today and I have two very interesting plays for those races. I will be diving into Kentucky Downs shortly, hoping to post the All Stakes Late PK4 by 1PM. And don't be alarmed, I did handicap Belmont Park races 3-10 with PK4 & PK3 wagers suggested.

For Saturday's Free Pick ~

Belmont race 7 - #3 DEVILISH LOVE - I came away from Saratoga very impressed with this horse. This Not for Love filly was moved into the Tony Dutrow barn and returned to win all three races this year in impressive fashion. She's 3/3 at a mile and 4/5 overall on turf plus she's a fighter. I expect her to sit a good trip and fight off her competition for victory today.

Also, I handicapped the Mystic Lake Derby (race 10) from Canterbury Park. Nice turf race with the chance of big balloon payoffs. I settled on #4 Pumpkin Rumble who is 10/1 on the M/L line, should sit a trip as there are multiple speeds to set it up for his late run. I'm boxing 4/1,5,7,8 and playing trifectas 4/1,5,7,8/1,5,7,8 + 1,5,7,8/4/1,5,7,8.

The very best of luck.

Free Pick4win.com Friday Horse Pick from Belmont Park

OK,

A very nice weekend of races gets underway today with some solid races from Belmont Park. I have a few horses running today I either bet & won with and seem certain to win right back or horses off troubled trips who just might surprise. That's half of what the Saratoga meet brings - horses to play back without the Saratoga spotlight so you can actually get decent prices.

Saturday will be a huge day. I will have Spot Plays from Woodbine as they are running many turf stakes, Kentucky Downs is running more races with deep fields on turf, plus I may make my first selection ever from Canterbury Park as they run the Mystic Lake Derby on turf. Great weekend to grab a Weekend Pass and play along all weekend.

Visit Pick4win.com to purchase today's selections or get your Weekend Pass.

For Friday's Free Pick ~

Belmont race 3 - #4 ELOQUENT TRIBUTE - most race goers will make a 'Moto' pick here and take one of the fillies that has started. Not me. This first time starter from Rudy Rod is very live. She's a very well bred filly who's mare won 2/3 sprinting and has dropped 5 winners from 6 foals. She shows a huge workout on 8/25 which is a flashing green light as Rudy does not work them fast on purpose. I expect her to drill this group today in her first lifetime start.

The very best of luck!
