BreezeFigs Quick-Pix for Saturday, August 15th by Bob Fierro and Jay Kilgore


We’re not saying we would have picked the winner as part of a key gimmick play, but two of the three horses we really liked in last week’s Pix finished second and third resulting in a $166 exacta, $96 quinella and $2,472 trifecta.  Sometimes you have to just shrug.  There was no shrugging, however, for 14 BreezeFigs 2-year-olds who broke their maidens last week, six of whom were the top part of gimmicks.  Six of them came home at Del Mar, including two who headed BreezeFigs exactas, one who headed a BreezeFigs trifecta, and another who topped a BreezeFigs superfecta.  Four won at Saratoga, including the top one in a BreezeFigs superfecta.  Two won at Delaware, one at Ellis Park (BreezeFigs exacta) and one at Penn National.  Over on the 3-year-old side, six BreezeFigs maidens won, one each at Belle Terre, Charles Town, Del Mar, Gulfstream, Ruidoso, and Santa Rosa. Today’s Pix may not pay off in big balloons, but they’re worth a shot, see below. Good luck!
