BreezeFigs Quick-Pix for Saturday, March 5th by Bob Fierro and Jay Kilgore


That was a bizarre, and very fast, Pick last week where our very special choice, Big Red Rocket, got buried while trying to stalk the pacesetter then got caught at the wire and beat out for second by the one we didn’t like.  Still, if you’d keyed him in the trifecta you got $23 back for a buck.  Meanwhile, eleven other BreezeFigs maidens did their job well enough to win during the week.  Two of those came at Santa Anita, where three of them completed a BreezeFigs exacta ($24) and trifecta ($182).  Other winners came at Aqueduct, Charles Town, Fair Grounds, Gulfstream (two), Sunland and Tampa Bay (three).  The first 2-year-old BreezeFigs  sale of 2016 was held by Fasig-Tipton this week at Gulfstream Park and we shall be seeing a number of nifty runners from this sale this Spring and Summer.  Meanwhile, we have a bit of a bonus this week for our Pick. see below. Good luck!
