BreezeFigs Quick-Pix for February 13th by Bob Fierro and Jay Kilgore


In last week’s Pick we thought that Echo Chamber would go to the lead and Georgia Blue would hold back and come on to be stronger at the finish.  What happened was that Echo Chamber got off slowly and never got into the hunt while Georgia Blue pressed the pace and just didn’t have enough gas left to hold off a 13-to-1 first timer, but she did finish second, also at 13-to-1 to complete a $132 exacta for a buck. (The winner, First Watch, looks good and this could become a key race).  Thank heavens for small favors.  It was a fairly light week otherwise with four BreezeFigs maidens scoring (two at Gulfstream, one at Golden Gate, one at Oaklawn), but it was also a light week for opportunity. Today’s card is also a bit light, and we hope the weather holds out so all the races can go—including the one we’ve focused on, see below. Good luck!
