BreezeFigs Quick-Pix for Saturday, December 19th by Bob Fierro and Jay Kilgore


Keying our Pix last week paid off, even though one of those races was a total mess in the stretch.  That would be the one at Gulfstream where our preferred key, Gimlet, got hung up nine wide, barreled through the lane strongly but spent too much effort to get up in time and finished fourth.  However, the other key, his stablemate Kismet’s Heels, went seven wide but managed to avoid traffic to complete a $168 exacta while Gimlet mopped up with a $184 for 10 cents superfecta.  Meanwhile in New Orleans, One Last Cigarette came from out of the clouds but couldn’t catch the front runners, but he completed a $939 trifecta.  Nine BreezeFigs maidens won last year, five of them at Aqueduct where there were two BreezeFigs exactas worth $38 and $18 respectively  Two more came at Golden Gate (which is moving up in BreezeFigs activity), and the other two at Hawthorne and Los Alamitos.    Some good opportunities on today’s card, see below. (Please note: There will be no column next week, Christmas Day).  Have a great holiday and good luck!
