BreezeFigs Quick-Pix for Saturday, July 23rd, 2016 by Bob Fierro and Jay Kilgore


Off slowly, Noted and Quoted, our top Pick last week, was given too much to do but she did manage to get up to complete a $3,500 superfecta which was kicked off by our two “gimmick” plays in the race, Morganite ($19 to win) and Champagne Room (who completed a $32 exacta and $29 quinella). Not a bad “saver.” Our 3-year-old Pick is still running, we think. There were 21 BreezeFigs maidens who won last week, including a first-timer in a stake at Belmont Park among 14 2-year-old winners. Other babies won at Albuquerque, Delaware, (BreezeFigs exacta), Del Mar (two, including an exacta), Ellis, Evangeline, Gulfstream (exacta), Indiana, Laurel, Lone Star (two, including an exacta), and Woodbine.  Among the 3-year-olds, four won at Del Mar, and one each at Arlington, Belmont and Sacramento (the latter two were first-timers, still a good bet among 3-year-olds). Saturday's card is overwhelming—Saratoga has opened and Del Mar is on a roll. Let’s see what we have for you, see below. Good luck! (BTW, our best wishes to Steve Crist who retired this week as major domo of the DRF he helped create and made indispensable. He has had a major impact on our business since the early 1980s and we salute him).
