BreezeFigs Quick-Pix, Saturday, August 4th


We gave you a solid winner in Drill Down at Del Mar last week and if you used Globalization in the gimmicks, you might have cashed in on the Trifecta. Point is, “qualified” BreezeFigs horses are usually in the money—there were 11 winners last week, so let’s see where the opportunities lie today.

Remember, keep stride length (SL) in mind when handicapping from the BreezeFigs sheet and take advantage of all the tips that we provide--you can get a good idea by clicking on BreezeFigs Information underneath the two BreezeFigs links in the DRF-PLUS box in the right hand column on the home page and downloading files there.

Today there are a bunch of maiden 2-y-o races to plunder, but two in particular look interesting. Good luck!

Del Mar, , Maiden Special, 5 ½ Furlongs

Six of the eight entries are BreezeFigs horses, and we think you should look at two firsters here—Huss the King and Volos. Both come out of the good BARMAR sale, with Huss the King having a longer SL than average and Volos not quite getting there—but he may have had an excuse because he never made it to the sales ring (SCR) after breezing. Of the others, Nativity Prep had a tough trip first time, and might be a gimmick play, but the two top ones should get your attention, and perhaps your money.

Woodbine, , Maiden Special, 6 Furlongs, Turf

Lickity Lemon gets in the body of the race and might be a real overlay here. She was bought back (RNA) for 79k at EASMAY where she showed a very impressive 24+ foot SL at 1/8 mile, very high for that sale—almost a foot longer than the average, and that was on the dirt and she’s by a solid turf sire. So it doesn’t show in your PP’s, and she might be a price. Two AE’s are also on the BreezeFigs list, and if Champagne Destiny gets in, she might be worth a tickle in the gimmick based on her first turf start and her very good OBSMAR figs.
