BreezeFigs Quick-Pix Saturday, September 16, 2017, by Bob Fierro & Jay Kilgore


Although she only held on by half-length, Moon Dash, our Pick last week, broke her maiden professionally and was expected to, returning a paltry $3.60. But, hey, she won. Fourteen other 2-year-old BreezeFigs maidens also won during the week, and two others, both first-time starters, won stakes races (at Finger lakes and Woodbine, at generous prices), which brought the total to 17 maiden winners. Besides Moon Dash, the other maiden winners came at Belmont (BreezeFigs exacta), Belterra, Delaware (two others, including a BreezeFigs exacta), Kentucky Downs, Los Alamitos (three), Louisiana Downs, Monmouth, Remington (two, including a BreezeFigs exacta), Retama, and Zia Park. Saturday's card is loaded with first-timers as Churchill Downs opens and other tracks spread the money around. However, we’ve found one that may not be on anyone’s radar, see below. Good luck!
