BreezeFigs Quick-Pix for Saturday, August 19, 2017, by Bob Fierro & Jay Kilgore


A dirty nose prevented our 2-year-old Pick Airtouch from getting his picture taken, and our 3-year-old Pick didn’t really lift a hoof in her belated debut. Stuff happens. Meanwhile, the 2-year-old BreezeFigs maidens are exploding with victories, 15 of them coming home on top, at: Arlington, Delaware (two, one BreezeFigs exacta), Del Mar (two, one BreezeFigs exacta), Ellis Park (BreezeFigs exacta), Gulfstream (four, two BreezeFigs exactas), Prairie Meadows, Sunray, Saratoga, and Woodbine (two). Four 3-year-old BreezeFigs maidens won last week, at Gulfstream, Indiana, Presque Isle and Saratoga. The numbers have dropped because so many of the 3-year-olds have already won, and as has been the case in previous years, we will end the 3-year-old cards with the one posted on Labor Day. Indeed, there isn’t a first-time starter on that card Saturday which teases our interest. On the other hand, there are tons of 2-year-old first-timers on the card, with one of them sticking out, see below. Good luck!
