BreezeFigs Quick-Pix for Saturday, April 25th by Bob Fierro and Jay Kilgore


Not much you can do when you’re five-wide all the way and then go six-wide into the stretch unless your horse has a supercharged motor. Thus was the case with our Pick last week, and though Cort’n Asong actually did not get beaten by that much, a trip like that usually doesn’t cash tickets, especially at a mile on a tight turf course like Keeneland.  Still, it was an excellent week for BreezeFigs maidens overall—17 of them got their picture taken: Aqueduct (three), Gulfstream (four, including an exacta), Hawthorne (an exacta), Keeneland, Parx, Penn, Pimlico, Santa Anita (three) and Tampa Bay (two). In addition, the Stormy Blues Stakes at Pimlico was swept by BreezeFigs fillies, and even though the winner, Lady Shipman, paid a measly $3, the exacta with Comforter was $51, and the trifecta with Harlan’s Honor popped up at $247.  Remember to check the 2-year-old cards each day as baby races are now being carded, though none as yet with BreezeFigs horses.  Today’s card is a bit sparse on first-timers, but we found one of interest, see below. Good luck!
