BreezeFigs Quick-Pix for Saturday, January 9th by Bob Fierro and Jay Kilgore


The new year started off with a weird Pix result—we didn’t really expect R Girls a Charmer to dash right out again and crush her field, but this filly, whom we liked in a gimmick way, looks like a major player for the future.  The others that we figured either had a chance to upset or get into a gimmick hardly picked up their hooves.  It was a very quiet week all around, with seven BreezeFigs maidens winning, including King Kranz, who finally broke his maiden on the holiday in the Lost in the Fog Stakes at Aqueduct, kicking off a modest $9 exacta and $18 trifecta with other BreezeFigs graduates Jan’s Reserve and Sallisaw. The next day BreezeFigs graduates Flexibility and Vorticity racked up a $14 BreezeFigs exacta in the Grade 3 Jerome at the same track, while Awesome Speed and Forever Darling won stakes at Gulfstream and Santa Anita, respectively.  Today’s card has a number of interesting opportunities, but one that may not pop up on many must-plays caught our eye, see below.  Good luck!
