BreezeFigs Quick-Pix, Saturday, November 21st


If you liked our top Pick last week and decided to mix him in the exacta with one we didn't really care for, you got a $27 payoff when Quay Lime Guy waltzed through the slop to beat Magic Lion, which was a better payoff than the $4 the winner returned, but one cannot be too picky these days. The winner was one of 17 BreezeFigs maiden winners between Friday and Thursday, including four on Thursday, three of which were very playable: Nothing Wild at Churchill ($54.80), Atomic Flea at Calder ($7.60), and Harissa at Hollywood ($14.60). The other, Wrath of Evan, at Golden Gate, was in cheap enough for a look-see, and he paid $10.20. As usual, this week's card is packed with possibilities all over the map, including one we particularly like-see below.

Before we get to the business of Pix, we remember we've changed our format for the 2-year-old sheet. The 2009 sales sheet has a major addition in the SALE column: It's now labeled SALE & HIP, the HIP referring to the catalogue number for that horse in that sale. This reference will enable you to go to the website of the sales company involved and easily find the short video of the horse's breeze at that sale.

The web links for each sale are listed in the NOTES section of the 2009 BreezeFigs Report and you will find all the information as to why we have done this and how you can benefit from this addition to the service by downloading the document which explains it all here: and get the BreezeFigs cards.

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.

If you click here you will get a document which details our latest study. The conclusion for those who like to know the bottom line fast is this: When it comes to 2-year-old racing only, horses that earned Group 1 or Group 2 BreezeFigs and had longer-than-average stride lengths at the five major 2-year-old sales of 2006-07-08, won more races, won earlier, and earned more black-type, than horses with shorter-than-average stride lengths, regardless of BreezeFigs Group. There's a lot more to it than that, and a review of this document, which is the first in a series, will strengthen your hand at the windows, or, if you are a buyer, at the sales or claim box. So, download it and absorb.

Also, refer to a study we did which shows that using BreezeFigs for 3-year-old maiden races in just as viable as using them for 2-year-old maiden races. Go to the DRF PLUS box on the .

Here's our Pick for today. Good luck!

Hollywood, , Maiden Special Weight, 6 Furlongs (Turf)

A couple in here have already started (Mister Do It and Camp Victory) and have a chance to redeem themselves with their first forays on the weeds, and two other first-timers (Do What U Dare and Nostalgic Bid) round out the BreezeFigs bunch. We think it comes out as one from Column A (Mister Do It) and one from Column B (Do What U Dare). Mister Do It had some crowding issues in his debut, and if he gets off well might put his BARMAR, Group 1 six-over-Par profile with a 26 foot SL on public display. Do What U Dare was steady if not spectacular at FTFFEB where he posted a three-over-Par Group 1 effort and a slightly above average 23.32 SL. Camp Victory has disappointed on synthetic despite doing well on that kind of a surface at OBSMAR where he was two-over-Par in his Group 1 profile with a 24.68 foot SL. He might be a saver in your gimmicks. Nostalgic Bid failed to impress at KEEAPR, so we like the top two in a solid box with the tip of the hat to Mister Do It. Good luck and Happy Thanksgiving!
