BreezeFigs Quick-Pix, Saturday, November 17th

EmailLast week’s BreezeFigs Quick Pix nailed a stone cold $61 exacta at Aqueduct and when our top pick at Hollywood was scratched, our suck-up bet completed a $145 exacta. Interesting thing about the Aqueduct race is that both the winner, Lieutenant Ron, and runner-up, Jockey Ridge, were firsters with excellent BreezeFigs at EASMAY. The heavy favorite (and third place finisher) Immortal Eyes, threw in a poor Group 4, seven-under-Par BreezeFig at OBSFEB, but was making his fifth start and didn’t appear on our sheet—but BreezeFigs players with good records had to take that into consideration, which we did.

There were five other BreezeFigs-qualified winners on that card, including stakes horses—and on Wednesday, BreezeFigs-qualified horses won six of the nine races on the card, and five of those had stride-lengths that were longer than average.

Remember, our rules still hold about BreezeFigs “qualified” runners: You can get a good idea of what “qualified” BreezeFigs horses are by clicking on BreezeFigs Information underneath the two BreezeFigs links in the DRF-PLUS box in the right hand column on the home page and downloading files there. Remember, keep stride length (SL) in mind when handicapping from the BreezeFigs sheet and take advantage of all the tips that we provide on those sheets as well.

This Saturday’s card is tough when it comes to finding maidens because there are a lot of allowance and stakes races on it, but the good thing is that most of the BreezeFigs horses have run and won already and you knew it then. Because this column deals with maidens, we found one particularly intriguing play—good luck!

This is a wide open seven-horse field with six first-time starters. The only BreezeFigs horse in the race is aptly named—Breeze Keeper—for what we bring to the table. He brings a distinctly obscure pedigree, but nice BreezeFigs profile, to the fray. He was a Group 1 horse at OBSAPR where he showed a whopping seven-over-Par 67 Fig at a quarter mile and a stride length that was almost a foot longer than average for that day. The negative here is only one published work to review but this is worth a shot.

Don't forget to use the Figs on those other allowance and stakes races on the card. Good luck!
