BreezeFigs Quick-Pix for Saturday, August 27th, 2016 by Bob Fierro and Jay Kilgore


We hardly expected our top 2-year-old Pick last week, Seven Forty Seven, to be sent off as the favorite, so we cringed as he and all the other BreezeFigs horses in the race except one threw in desultory efforts. The one that didn’t, Favorable Outcome, lived up to his name and BreezeFigs profile which we should have taken more seriously considering he paid only $9.90. Of course, if you had him, congrats. On the other hand, there were seven other winners on that 2-year-old card, including a trifecta at Gulfstream and a superfecta at Monmouth, so it was hardly a total loss. There were 15 BreezeFigs 2-year-olds who broke their maidens during the week, so things are really exploding. They came at Del Mar, Ellis (three), Golden Gate, Gulfstream (four), Indiana, Laurel, Monmouth, Presque Isle and Saratoga (two). Among the 3-year-olds, the lone first-timer on the card last week was our Pick Head for the Hills, and she did not live up to her name but headed for the wire faster than the others in her race to pay a generous $10.60. Remember, the 3-year-old cards will disappear after Labor Day. Once again there’s a ton of horses on the 2-year-old card Saturday with a very contentious Pick, and just one lone firster on the 3-year-old card—which we like, see below. Good luck!
