BreezeFigs Quick-Pix for Saturday, January 31st by Bob Fierro and Jay Kilgore


The stylish victory last week of our top Pick, Khozan, once again demonstrates the fact that stride length counts (25.06 feet for him), and sometimes you can do OK at the windows with such a horse ($5.80 to win was a huge overlay).  But what is more interesting is that on last Saturday’s card, eight other BreezeFigs maidens won, four of them with longer-than-average stride lengths, and five of the six other BreezeFigs maiden winners during the whole week could makes the same claim.  Saturday’s card featured three winners at Oaklawn, two each at Gulfstream and Penn National, and solos at Santa Anita and Tampa Bay.  Oaklawn had another two winners during the week, with Gulfstream, Sam Houston Santa Anita and Tampa Bay coming up with solos. Today’s card is once again loaded with opportunity, including the one below. Good luck!
