BELMONT AT THE BIG A Race 1- Commander of Truth #3 Thoughts: Race 1 is loaded with talented maiden runners so I think we will still be able to get a decent price on #3 COMMANDER OF TRUTH who is a $675K son of Constitution that is debuting for Chad Brown.  His workouts are consistent and […]

BELMONT AT THE BIG A Race 2- 50 cent Pick Four play Thoughts: The key to my Pick four play today is that I am going to single #1 UNHOLY in Race 2 and then go deep in all of the other legs with the hope of catching some prices.  The reason I am singling Unholy […]

It's Opening Day of the Fall meets at both Belmont at the Big A and Churchill Downs!  After an 11-day break, it is good to have racing in New York again and let's hope for a safe and profitable meet In the Big Apple, as well as at Churchill where they had a rocky spring […]

PIMLICO Race 1- Daily Double play Thoughts: If the races stay on the turf today then I have the following Daily Double play: In Race 1, I am taking four horses from excellent turf trainers, while in Race 2, I am singling #6 ZYRAMID who returns to the optional claiming $20K level where he has had […]

Kentucky Downs has a massive card today with five $1 million dollar races and then highlighted with the $1.7 million dollar Turf Cup in their 12th race finale.  The weather there is slated to be beautiful after a rough Thursday where they had over 30 scratches.  So, let's get into it! KENTUCKY DOWNS Race 1- Noto […]

PIMLICO Race 1- 50 cent Pick Five play Thoughts: Race 1 is a battle of bottom level claimers, and #3 SALOON is going to take a heap of money due to trainer Cathal Lynch and the speedball mission last out where he just missed.  But this is a terrible race, and I am going to spread […]

Joe’s Picks-September 7, 2023

With Belmont still a week away and Saratoga having just concluded, I find today's race card to be somewhat uninspiring.

Joe’s Picks-September 4, 2023

It's the closing day of Saratoga and Labor Day, a day that is sad for many people as this great meet ends and most teachers are going back to work and kids going back to school this week.  It has been a fun a month and a half as I have handicapped every day of […]

SARATOGA Race 1- 50 cent Pick Five play Thoughts: In Race 1, I am taking three second-time starters and three first-time starters in what I feel is a wide open maiden special weight clash on the turf, despite the fact that #8 WEIGH THE RISKS will probably go off close to even money based on getting […]

Joe’s Picks-September 2, 2023

With three days left in the Saratoga meet, the race for top trainer is tight.  Chad Brown has 32 wins and Linda Rice has 30 wins, and even Todd Pletcher has made a late run to get to 25.  Anything can happen in this game and these three will be duking it out all weekend […]
