BreezeFigs Quick-Pix for Saturday, May 27, 2017, by Bob Fierro & Jay Kilgore


As is often the case, 2-year-olds who should settle are often fried when sent to the lead too early, which was the case in our “key” Pick last week, Confidential, who flew early and struggled late to miss out on placing but completed a cheap $4.99 super in a five horse field at Gulfstream. However, the day was saved when our 3-year-old Pick, Red Flash, got up late on a muddy oval at Lone Star to pay eight bucks. He was one of eight BreezeFigs 3-year-old maidens to win last week, including two on the same day at Parx, two at Indiana (one BreezeFigs exacta), and solos at Arlington, Gulfstream and Presque Isle. Two babies won, at Indiana and Santa Anita—the latter, Saudi Chroma, who set tongues wagging. We’ll continue with our “one from Column A, one from Column B” menu Saturday with a couple of interesting events, see below. Good luck!
