BreezeFigs Quick-Pix for Saturday, August 29th by Bob Fierro and Jay Kilgore


Both of last week’s Pix could have put some change in your pocket, especially when Sheikh of Sheiks came through at a surprisingly generous $15.20 at Saratoga.  Our 3-year-old Pix¸ran OK at Delaware to finish third and fourth in generous trifecta and superfecta payoffs.  It was a good week for BreezeFigs juveniles as an even dozen broke their maidens across the country, including a BreezeFigs exacta/quinella/trifecta at Del Mar on Sunday involving first-timers which didn’t pay a whole heck of a lot, but it was better than loose change.  Besides Sheikh of Sheiks, another one broke its maiden at Saratoga, three came home on top at Gulfstream, and there were solos at Arlington, Delaware, Ellis, Indiana, Monmouth, and Presque Isle. Over on the 3-year-old side, only two broke their maidens, at Finger Lakes and Gulfstream, and that’s a portent because there aren’t many left.  Remember, no more 3-year-olds after Labor Day, and today’s card has no first-timers, so we will concentrate on the babies, see below. Good luck!
