BreezeFigs Quick-Pix for Saturday, October 15, 2016 by Bob Fierro and Jay Kilgore


Last week’s Pick turned out to be a mess. Our choice, Son of a Saint, slammed into another at the start and decided he wasn’t interested after that even though he did make up ground late. Dupree cut off another one at the start, set the pace, and ran totally out of gas late to finish third. Sorry. On the other hand, 15 BreezeFigs maidens did their job last week, winning at 10 tracks, and two others won Graded stakes. The maidens were broken at Belmont (two), Delaware, Fresno (two), Gulfstream West (two), Indiana ($72 payoff), Keeneland (two, including a perfectly playable $95 Group 1 first timer), Meadowlands, Parx (a BreezeFigs exacta), Santa Anita (two, including a BreezeFigs exacta), and Woodbine. Both stakes winners came at Keeneland—Dancing Rags and Fun ran 1-3 in the Grade 1 Alcibiades and later in the week La Coronel won the Grade III Jessamine on the turf. Today’s card is bursting with first-timers and one race stands out as a potential key event, see below. Good luck!
