BreezeFigs Quick-Pix for Saturday, September 9, 2017, by Bob Fierro & Jay Kilgore


Although our 3-year-old Pick didn’t win, the 2016 BreezeFigs class pounded home six more maiden winners last week as their “official season” (i.e., posting cards), ended Labor Day. The winners came at Arlington, Gulfstream, Parx, Presque Isle, Retama and Saratoga (a BreezeFigs exacta, fittingly).  The 2-year-olds kept rolling along with another 13 maiden winners plus a half-dozen stakes winners that were all on the cards (two at Del Mar, one each at Evangeline, Gulfstream, Monmouth and Saratoga).The important thing is that our Pick, Maraud, showed he was a good colt with an impressive win at what may, in retrospect, look like a generous $4.90. The maidens came home on top at Del Mar (three), Ellis Park (two, including a BrezzeFigs exacta), Finger Lakes (BreezeFigs exacta), Golden Gate (BreezeFigs exacta), Gulfstream, Mountaineer, Presque Isle, Saratoga (two, including a BreezeFigs exacta), and Woodbine. Saturday's juvenile card is juicy, but we found one that may be ripe to play. see below. Good luck!
