BreezeFigs Quick-Pix for Saturday, October 7, 2017, by Bob Fierro & Jay Kilgore


It’s never happened before but there’s always a chance it will with BreezeFigs first-time starter maidens. In our Pick last week we keyed second-choice Maurinho (whom we also played straight) with favored Instilled Regard and long shot Peace, with Alternate Rhythm, the only other BreezeFigs colt in the race given a gimmick shot. Well, the finish was Maurinho ($7.80) over Peace ($1 exacta $36.20), with Instilled Regard third (50-cent trifecta $45.80)—and Alternate Rhythm snuck up to complete a $619 superfecta. Sometimes good stuff happens, and we think this will be a key race to follow.  There were 17 other BreezeFigs 2-year-old maidens who won last week, at: Belmont, Belterra, Churchill (two), Delaware, Gulfstream (three, including a BreezeFigs exacta), Gulfstream West (BreezeFigs exacta), Indiana, Laurel, Remington, Retama, Santa Anita (two others, both BreezeFigs exactas), Thistledown and Woodbine. That about covers the whole continent, no? Saturday's Pick is a pip, could be a very special race, see below. Good luck!
