BreezeFigs Quick-Pix, Saturday, October 20th

EmailThere were seven winners of maiden races on last Saturday’s BreezeFigs card, but we didn’t happen to have of them in our Pix, even though one of them, a marginal "qualified" horse, won one of the races we focused on. Just shows we aren’t exactly perfect at isolating our chances, but this is another week with another bunch of juicy opportunities.

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.

Today we are sticking with Keeneland, where there are two intriguing events on Polytrack. Good luck!

Keeneland, , Maiden Special, 6 Furlongs

Two of the four BreezeFigs fillies in this race might be worth looking at. Lethal Quality has run twice already without much success, but she comes back off a freshening for her canny trainer, and switches to Polytrack where she might live up to her four-over-Par Group 2 Fig at FTFFEB. She showed a below-average SL that day but it might be OK on this surface, which could carry her along. Just as intriguing is firster My Sweet Valor who threw in a two-over-Par Group 2 at BARMAR with a slightly above-average SL. She, too, comes from a clever outfit that took its time getting this somewhat under-priced (at 190k) daughter of Vindication to the races. Both of these look like solid gimmick plays, and the board might lean you one way or the other on the win bet.

Keeneland, , Maiden Special, 6 Furlongs

The other half of this split maiden has a very intriguing firster, Sheza Botha Ours, who’s by the hot Freshman sire Posse but her morning line is way out of whack with her potential. She had a nine-over-Par Group 1 BreezeFig at OBSAPR, which was only two points below the top of the sale for fillies at 1/8 mile. She looks like she might be tight enough despite only three published works, one of which was a solid one from the gate on this surface. Pounce.
