BreezeFigs Quick-Pix, Saturday, September 2nd


Another nine BreezeFigs winners popped up across the country last week including both ends of a split maiden at Saratoga (Market Psychology and Successful Ways, both Group 1 horses), plus Prenuptial paid $57.20 as a logical play in a stakes at Del Mar.

Today, there are 94 BreezeFigs horses running at 15 tracks across the continent, including the Juvenile Showcase at Calder, which is filled with juicy opportunities in both stakes and maiden races. Here's our shot at the early Daily Double (make sure you have read the "new features" backgrounder available which talks about stride lengths and RNAs.)

Calder, , Maiden Claiming (40k), 5 1/2 Furlongs

There are six BreezeFigs horses here, five of them qualified to consider strongly, but one of them, Copewiththestorm, a first-timer, might be the sneaky play here. She had a two-over-Par, Group 1 BreezeFig at OBSMAR, and did that with a 24 foot stride length. She only sold for 23k, but she's in here at a 40k tag, and may be the one to watch on the board, and to definitely use in the gimmicks.

Calder, , Maiden Special, 6 Furlongs

This race has five BreezeFigs horses, four of which have decent shots, but two first-timers are very intriguing--Cherokee Uprising and High Ceo. Both come out of the OBSMAR sale, both were Group 1 at that sale at 1/8 mile, and Cherokee Uprising had a better BreezeFig (six over par to Hig Ceo's two over Par), but High Ceo had a stride length that was 1 3/4 feet longer. That makes it very interesting unless he is substantially bigger than Cherokee Uprising, which would make them about even on stride length (try to see them in the paddock to compare). You won't find that Cherokee Uprising was even in that sale in the PP's--he was an RNA for 70k. High Ceo sold for $57,000, which means even the market judged them pretty evenly. They are stone cold gimmick plays at the very least.
