BreezeFigs Quick-Pix for Saturday, April 5th by Bob Fierro and Jay Kilgore


Last week's Pick turned into an "aaarrrrrrgggggh!" experience as The Big Beast utilized his enormous stride length to close from somewhere in the Ozarks to just miss winning by a nose, while our other Pick, Harbor Fog faded to fourth.  Still, if you'd keyed them in any gimmicks, your $174 exacta, $1,351 trifecta and $7,623 super (for a buck) felt pretty good in your pocket.  Along with a 1-3 finish by Vicar's in Trouble and Commanding Curve in the Grade 2 Louisiana Derby, eight BreezeFigs horses broke their maidens last week--at Aqueduct, Calder, Golden Gate (2), Oaklawn, Parx, Pimlico, and Santa Anita.  Keeneland is open, their 2-year-old sale is slated for Monday, and our Pick is below.  Good luck!
