My Preakness selections Social Inclusion was done before he entered the gate yesterday, as he melted down being saddled in front of 120,000 screaming lunatics. We did cash a bunch of other tickets including three straight Pick3’s that paid – $96.40, $121.80, and $249.40 with lots of exactas and trifectas too. A good day was had or could have been had by every Pick4win player.
For Sunday, we’re settling in for the long haul at Belmont Park. Saratoga opens in two months. Think about that… Anyway, I have races 2-9 completely handicapped today with Pick5, both Pick4’s, and Pick3 wagers suggested.
For Sunday’s Free Pick ~
Belmont race 8 – #5 MY JOPIA – (10/1 on the M/L) the Dominick Shettino trained Utopia mare returns off a lengthly layoff going back to November 23. Two of her four lifetime wins are over this Belmont turf. She drops from three straight stakes races into an optional claimer in which she has already won the condition and is in for the tag. If she comes out firing like both the trainers other Belmont starters, she will be very tough to beat today.
The very best of luck!
