BreezeFigs Quick-Pix for Saturday, May 6, 2017 by Bob Fierro & Jay Kilgore


Our Pick last week, Posse’s Paradise, broke last, couldn’t get her speed going until late but finished well enough to warrant a look at a mile. Otherwise, the news was good as the first BreezeFigs 2-year-old winner (from only four starters) came at Santa Anita as Sugar Queen ran away from her field. There were eleven BreezeFigs 3-year-olds that broke their maidens as well: Belmont (two), Churchill, Golden Gate, Gulfstream, Keeneland, Laurel (a BreezeFigs exacta), Lone Star, Santa Anita (two) and Tampa Bay. That’s a pretty wide geographical spread. Saturday's Kentucky Derby has us just as puzzled as it might have you, and we haven’t quite decided whether to throw our money in with other punters—or simply punt. But we do have our first 2-year-old race to examine which goes off well before the Derby and may give you a couple of extra bucks to punt with, see below. Good luck!
