BreezeFigs Quick-Pix, Saturday, April 21st


There were seven BreezeFigs-qualified winners in maiden 3-Y-O races between Sunday and Thursday--at Aqueduct, Gulfstream, Keeneland, Lone Star, Santa Anita and Woodbine--all of whom were making either their first or second starts. One of them, Sweetsinginanita, paid $108.00 at Aqueduct in her first start--she was a two-over-Par Group 2 filly last year at EASMAY with an above-average stride length for that sale. Keep these things in mind when you use BreezeFigs, which are available FREE with your DRF-Plus subscription. (Remember, please take advantage of all the tips that we provide--you can get a good idea by clicking on BreezeFigs Information underneath the two BreezeFigs links in the DRF-PLUS box in the right hand column on the home page and downloading files there. Good luck!)

This week we have two 3-Y-O and one 2-Y-O maiden race to highlight among the 16 on your BreezeFigs card.

Aqueduct, , Maiden Special, 6 Furlongs

Firsters Holy Canyon and The Duke of Stanco look playable in what may be a key maiden race. Both were even-Par Group 2 horses at their respective sales, and all things taken into consideration they are basically the same horse. Holy Canyon had a 24-foot plus stride length at KEEAPR, which was a tad under the average for the day, but he is by Holy Bull and is likely a large horse, so he should have a long stride. The Duke of Stanco is by City Zip, who gets more medium sized horses, and this one had a slightly-above average 23 foot stride length at OBSMAR. They are from excellent connections, so watch the board but you might want to use one or both in your gimmicks.

Tampa Bay, , Maiden Special, One Mile (Turf)

Happyholidaymagic comes off a three-month layoff from his first start where he flattened out under the same conditions. He's been looking for a spot to show the impressive 24-foot stride length he threw in at OBSAPR last year, which got him a four-over-Par BreezeFig at OBSAPR. This one looks very solid.

Keeneland, , Maiden Special, 4 1/2 Furlongs

Last chance for American County, who we gave you at 11-to-1 two weeks ago in the first baby race of the year. She was off slow from the rail but still managed to get within a length on the wire while five wide. She is joined by Bluegrass Girl, who comes out of the same OBSFEB sale with two BreezeFigs, one very poor and the other somewhat promising, but she is strictly a suck-up gimmick play if the board tells you something. Otherwise, get down on American County.
