I know, there is nothing better than free! – Lets hope they can be used to put together some solid exotic selections, and used to the max.

Belmont Park

Race #9 / 5:17 EST – The G-2 Vagrancy – 6 1/2 f

#2 Hilda’s Passion: Looks like a good thing. She has speed to burn and this race is a part of the $300,000 pick four. J.J. Castellano is skipping the Ohio Derby for this mount, and Todd Pletcher knows the track all too well. She looks to control the pace, and should be a “free spot” on your multi-race ticket.

Churchill Downs

Race #9 / 4:59 EST – The G-3 Dogwood – 1 mile

#1 Might (2-1): Tons of speed should set up this sister to Blame. She draws the rail and Julien and Al Stall hook-up. Impressive winner at CD on May 6th, and can break right behind Juantia and Grand Lioness to make a move before the top of the lane. If you get 2-1, bet early and often.

Race #10 / 5:29 EST – The G-3 Aristides

#3 Capt Candyman Can (5-2): Looks to be the class. 3/4 ITM at Louisville and made a middle move out going 7 panels last out, and was steadied after the 1/2. Look for a big stretch run, and the shorter distance makes it look attractive today.


Race #8 / 4:36 EST – The G-2 Nassau – 1 mile on the turf.

#4 Miss Keller (5-2): Looks to be a sweet thing. Eurico DeSilva for Roger Attfield, and they know how to rule the roost. 3/3 ITM at Woodbine and toss out that last race at Keeneland. Kentucky received more rain in April than in history. The track was water logged, and I think she needs firmer ground. Runs well fresh, and Attfield has been winning there for years. I love his Keeneland and Woodbine ventures. I see big things for her today.

Best of luck, and be sure to check on the “EZ-Win Forms” to help find maximum value.
