BreezeFigs Quick-Pix for Saturday, September 3, 2016 by Bob Fierro and Jay Kilgore


First things first: This is the final week for the BreezeFigs 2015 cards—they end on Monday, Labor Day, as has been our custom the past few years. There are so few starters with less than four starts from last year’s sales that it really doesn’t help handicappers all that much. That said, the less we say about our Pix last week, the better. Just not our day. On the other hand, it was a very good week overall for both 2-year-olds and 3-year-olds. There were 15 BreezeFigs 2-year-old maidens that won: Arlington, Canterbury, Del Mar (three, including two BreezeFigs exactas), Ellis, Gulfstream (three, including a BreezeFigs exacta), Monmouth (a BreezeFigs exacta), Saratoga (three, plus a stake), and Timonium (two). The 3-year-olds which broke their maidens came at Charles Town, Del Mar, Gulfstream and Saratoga (where another won a stake). Saturday's final 3-year-old card has an interesting first-timer, and the 2-year-old card, which is loaded with more than 75 horses, has a sneaky play, see below. Good luck!
