BreezeFigs Quick-Pix for Saturday, July 30th, 2016 by Bob Fierro and Jay Kilgore


Both our Pix took a dive last week—Patron (Ger) went out and fried himself at Del Mar, and despite two BreezeFigs horses completing the trifecta, the ones we liked at Saratoga had no interest in doing their jobs.  So it wasn’t a total loss, the result of the Grade 3 Sanford at Saratoga on the same day produced a BreezeFigs exacta between Bitumin and Random Walk paltry though it was at $7.30. Still it was a very successful week all around, one in which nine BreezeFigs 3-year-olds and eight BreezeFigs 2-year-olds broke their maidens. Lumping them together is interesting to see how they fared across the country: Arlington (a BreezeFigs exacta), Del Mar (two), Evangeline, Gulfstream (three), Laurel, Parx (two, including an exacta), Presque Isle, Saratoga (four) and Thistledown (two). Saturday's cards are solid—with the 2-year-olds offering many challenging opportunities, a couple of which are selected below. Good luck!
