Key Horse Races & Expert Handicapper Bets – June 5, 2021

Manhattan Stakes - Race 10 at Belmont - Post Time 5:38 PM Eastern Master Piece, Channel Cat, Gufo, Domestic Spending and Colonel Liam are the win contenders. As such, and with Brown having four entrants in this race, I’ll turn my attention to Master Piece first. Winner of four in a row in late 2019 in his native Chile, including one of the biggest races in South American among a field of 16, Master Piece made his second U.S. start and first following six months off in mid-April at Keeneland. Among that field were [...]

The Pennine Ridge Stakes – Can Lightning Strike Twice

Last week I wrote about betting a horse off a bad race and how it can be a profitable angle. It worked out well as Get Smokin went gate to wire at 4-1 off a 19-length loss. It was a good day. When I looked at the races this weekend, the same scenario popped up again. The Pennine Ridge is the feature at Belmont on Saturday, and I like a horse that finished up the track last out. Sure, it was in the Kentucky Derby but up the track is up the track. The [...]

Key Horse Races & Expert Handicapper Bets – May 29, 2021

Race 8 at Belmont - Post Time 4:40 PM Eastern Superfecto, Mystic Night, Doubly Blessed and Family Biz are the win contenders. Superfecto drops in class off a third of seven finish in the Grade 3 Ghostzapper Stakes in late March, a two turn race. This 1 1/16 mile trip at Belmont is around one turn, so the horse’s most representative effort came in a one turn mile race on January 6 which followed a two month layoff nearly identical to the one he’s returning from today. He won that race by almost six [...]

The Seek Again Stakes – Overlay Angles

Most handicappers love when they see a horse who is going to go off longer odds than they should or deserve to be. The overlay, as they say, is one of the better wagers at the racetrack. Whether you make your own projected morning or fair odds line or use the one provided by the racetrack, most players have an idea of what price is fair on a horse and that they would be willing to take, In the stake on Saturday at Belmont, The Seek Again, there is an angle I love and [...]

Key Horse Races & Expert Handicapper Bets – May 22, 2021

Race 8 at Belmont - Post Time 4:40 PM Eastern Trinni Luck, Bankers Daughter and Breakfastatbonnies are the win contenders. Trinni Luck won her only start and although a maiden claiming race last July it was against open (not restricted) company. She’s been away since then but is now in the top Rudy Rodriguez barn and gets his #1 jockey in Manny Franco as she faces New York bred only. Her last work was the best of the day for a half-mile and she faces a pretty weak field so if able to run [...]
