BreezeFigs Quick-Pix Saturday, October 21st


Looks like another Saturday chock-full of juicy BreezeFigs opportunities following a week of just-misses, including our Quick Pix last week, No Trippin, who went off 15-to-1 and just got nailed at the wire by the favorite, returning a $76 exacta at Keeneland. (If you bought BreezeFigs that day, you would have also had the dope to hit a stone cold exacta in the second race which paid $138).  These horses are all showing very good stride lengths, so it's important you understand this factor by reading our study (Where 2-Year-Old Winners of 2006 Come From) by clicking .

This Saturday there are plenty of maiden races at a dozen tracks that you should study carefully and use BreezeFigs to handicap, including these two:

Belmont Park, , Maiden Special (NYB), 7 Furlongs

It's New York Showcase Day and this maiden for fillies may actually showcase a a couple of nice fillies who came out of the same sale, KEEAPR.  Firster Royal Natalie earned a solid four-over-Par Group 1 BreezeFig on the turf that day with a stride length that was 23.6 feet--just about average for her sex that day, but she moved really well and should be used in the gimmicks. The other one from that sale, Guts Game, was a Group 3 one-under-Par with a stride length that was a foot longer for fillies on the dirt that day, so in a sale this good, she did fine.  She will be one of the favorites and you should consider hooking her up with Royal Natalie.

Calder, , 5 Furlongs

This looks like a fairly weak bunch for a straight maiden special, and it's probably that Ritzy Cat, who came out of the classy OBSFEB sale, and has run three times, will be favored.  But he has shown that his Group 4, seven-under-Par BreezeFig at that sale was probably justified.  We like two that came out of the much weaker OBSJUN sale, but with superior numbers.  Not Hung Yet had a six-over-Par BreezeFig with a 25 foot-plus stride length and got walloped at the gate in his last start, but still recovered well to finish fourth.  The real play here, however, could be firster Tricky Lak, who scored a monster 12-over-par Group 1 BreezeFig at that sale and comes into the race off some decent works.  Use him and Not Hung Yet in your gimmicks.
