BreezeFigs Quick-Pix for Saturday, February 18, 2017 by Bob Fierro & Jay Kilgore


There were many animalistic guttural sounds that came out of our throats as five horses finished on the wire in our Pick last week. Unfortunately, we finished second, third and in a dead heat for fourth—which gave us some claim on a gimmick payoff, while our preferred Pick got off slowly and finished even slower up the track. Such is racing. However, the rest of the week was quite superlative for BreezeFigs maidens, with 18 of them winning from coast-to-coast with a ton of gimmicks along the way. The gimmicks came at: Aqueduct (a BreezeFigs superfecta); Gulfstream (six wins, including three on one card and a BreezeFigs trifecta on another day); Laurel (three, two on one card and a BreezeFigs exacta another day); Santa Anita (BreezeFigs superfecta);  Tampa Bay (four, including a BreezeFigs superfecta). Solos came at Oaklawn; Penn National; and Mahonig Valley. Saturday's card is flooded with first times, many of them with interesting BreezeFigs profiles, which fit the bill in some places. We’ve found an intriguing one, see below. Good luck!
