BreezeFigs Quick-Pix for Saturday, July 22, 2017, by Bob Fierro & Jay Kilgore


Where do we start? How about a very good lesson in “How to Fry Your Mount,” which was exactly what happened with our 2-year-old Pick last week as Beyond Ambition blew the doors off the gate and flew to a speed fueled lead, only to stop on a dime at the eighth pole to finish fourth. Meanwhile, our “gimmick play,” and race favorite Cause We Are Loyal, saved the day at $5.40. Then, in a truly bizarre race, our 3-year-old Pick, Kai Nalu, gave them fits before she loaded and the horse in the next stall refused to break, causing our horse to stop and then go, trailing the field by many lengths until she started to finally roll to miss by a neck and nose for second. Tab her back at seven furlongs to a mile, if they can straighten her out. Eight 3-year-old BreezeFigs maidens won last week at Belmont (two), Belterra, Delaware, Del Mar (BreezeFigs exacta), Los Alamitos, Parx and Penn National. Seven 2-year-olds broke their maidens at  Del Mar (two, including a BreezeFigs exacta), Ellis (BreezeFigs exacta), Laurel, Los Alamitos (two) and Presque Isle.  In addition, winners of both stakes for 2-year-old at Belmont Park were BreezeFigs horses in their second starts, right there on our card. Saturday's cards are a complete challenge but we have found a race on each card where there may be a chance to make a buck, see below. Good luck!
