BreezeFigs Quick-Pix for Saturday, December 10th, 2016 by Bob Fierro and Jay Kilgore


Sometimes it pays to keep your mouth shut. We didn’t quite like Run Macho Run’s chances in last week’s Pick compared to our two firsters, but when our choice Into Kings scratched, that left Run Macho Run enough space to get out early and hold on as the surprising favorite at $7.40. Our other more fancied Pick, Hard Arch, raced lazily but managed to get up for third to complete a $36 trifecta for a buck. There you go.  Meanwhile, 20 other BreezeFigs maidens got off the schneid last week including two on opening day at Los Alamitos. Meet at Jakes hammered home at $154 in his third start the first race; and firster Resilient Humor paid $67 in the fourth to kick off a $241 BreezeFigs exacta with firster Dominating Woman—and another firster, Kenda, was fourth in a $3,534 superfecta. The other winners were at Aqueduct (three), Charles Town (two), Delta Downs, Gulfstream (three, including an exacta), Laurel, Mahoning Valley, Tampa Bay (four, including two exactas, plus two stakes races), Turfway (two), and Woodbine. Busy week and busy Saturday with tons of opportunities which resulted in a bonus selection, see below... Good luck!
