BreezeFigs Quick-Pix Saturday, September 23, 2017 by Bob Fierro & Jay Kilgore


“Horses don’t lie,” was the comment made by a connection of our Pick last week who decided after training well up to the race to decide she simply didn’t want to race. Too bad we can’t interview them before the race. In any case, it wasn’t a total loss as 11 2-year-old BreezeFigs maidens came home on top last week, at: Belmont, Churchill (two), Delaware (two), Gulfstream (five, including two BreezeFigs exactas), and Los Alamitos (BreezeFigs exacta). Saturday's card is loaded with first-timers and we pondered a lot of them but decided to come up with something completely different.  We are selecting one horse from each of the three maiden races at Belmont for you to key—and leave you to figure out the rest of the plays based on the data on the card. Lazy? Nah, just shaking things up a bit, see below. Good luck!
