    Pimlico Race 7 for Saturday, April 13, 2013
    Handicapped by The Turf Club Analysts

    Bar

    Pimlico - Race #7 - Post: 3:58pm - Maiden Special - 8.5 furlongs on the Turf. Purse: $40,000 Class Rating: 83

    Rating: Golden DollarGolden DollarGolden DollarGolden Dollar

    #2 HOMESTEAD (ML=8/1)
    #8 SUPREME MAKER (ML=6/1)
    #3 HIT SQUAD (ML=7/2)


    HOMESTEAD - Has found a good spot in today's event. SUPREME MAKER - Last time around the track on the turf, this horse was strong. Anything close right here, and this one should win. This filly has been posting some excellent workout times. 30-83-86 are last 3 Equibase speed figs. Improving each time out is something she should do again today. HIT SQUAD - Karamanos and Correas partnered with one another are a railbird's friend.

    Vulnerable Contenders: #7 MISS PLIMSOLL (ML=3/1), #10 SOUTH ANDROS (ML=5/1), #13 MOON LEGACY (ML=6/1),

    MISS PLIMSOLL - Can't play this chalk horse off the long layoff. SOUTH ANDROS - When examining today's class rating, she will have to notch a better speed fig than in the last race to vie in this turf route. MOON LEGACY - This filly recorded a speed figure in her last event which likely isn't good enough today.

    Top HatGUEST COMMENTARY: The Turf Man - SUPREME MAKER - This steed, posting the top average class figure, figures to give these horses a run for their money.





    STRAIGHT WAGERS:
    #2 HOMESTEAD is the play if we get odds of 7/2 or better

    EXACTA WAGERS:
    Box [2,3,8]

    TRIFECTA WAGERS:
    Box [2,3,8] Total Cost: $6

    SUPERFECTA WAGERS:
    [2,3,8] with [2,3,8] with [2,3,8,10,13] with [2,3,8,10,13] Total Cost: $36

    Mountaineer - Race #2 - Post: 7:25pm - Maiden Claiming - 6.0 furlongs on the Dirt. Purse: $8,100 Class Rating: 48

    Rating: Golden DollarGolden DollarGolden DollarGolden Dollar

    #2 BULLISH BABE (ML=7/2)


    BULLISH BABE - Trainer Vecchio moves this one down in class to face a lower class of horses. Look for a solid effort in this race. This filly earned a good speed rating of 38 in her last race. That speed fig should be lofty enough to prove victorious today.

    Vulnerable Contenders: #6 START THE BAND (ML=5/2), #1 CRAFTY VICKI (ML=4/1), #4 MOUNTABLE (ML=6/1),

    START THE BAND - No pace in this field to help set-up her late rush. CRAFTY VICKI - When any equine improves so much on the mud, I have to be a little shy about her next time. MOUNTABLE - Last performed on March 10th at Mountaineer, finishing seventh. Unlikely to perk up off of that effort in today's event. You always figure that this animal has a shot to cross the finish line in first, but she comes up short most every time.



    STRAIGHT WAGERS:
    Play #2 BULLISH BABE to win if you can get odds of 1/1 or more

    EXACTA WAGERS:
    2 with 6

    TRIFECTA WAGERS:
    None

    SUPERFECTA WAGERS:

    RACE #8 - SANTA ANITA PARK - 4:05 PM PACIFIC POST
    The Las Cienegas Stakes
    6½ FURLONGS DOWNHILL TURF COURSE FILLIES AND MARES FOUR YEARS OLD AND UPWARD STAKES $100,000.00 PURSE

    #6 MIZDIRECTION
    #1 PURIM'S DANCER
    #2 SCHIAPARELLI
    #5 BENCH GLORY

    #6 MIZDIRECTION is the only entry in this stakes field sprinting at, or about, today's distance of 6½ furlongs on the turf not taking a step up in class this afternoon, is the speed and pace profile leader, and has hit the board in "POWER RUN FASHION" in each of her last five outings, winning four times in this recent streak of racing consistency. #1 PURIM'S DANCER also has a nice pace profile, has excellent early speed to compliment for this sprint, and has also posted a quartet of "POWER RUN WINS" in her last five starts.

    Calder - Race #1 - Post: 12:50pm - Claiming - 6.0 furlongs on the Dirt. Purse: $11,500 Class Rating: 82

    Rating: Golden DollarGolden DollarGolden DollarGolden Dollar

    #1 STORMY MANDATE (ML=3/1)


    STORMY MANDATE - This rider and trainer's horses have been producing a positive return on investment. Colt had the second fastest workout of the day prepping for this. Trainer Catanese moves this one down in the class scale to face a weaker class today. Look for a solid race given this drop.

    Vulnerable Contenders: #6 BEAR'S SPIRIT (ML=8/5), #2 BLUE BUSINESS (ML=5/1), #3 PUTY BOY (ML=6/1),

    BEAR'S SPIRIT - This probable favorite ran on March 20th and hasn't had a work since. I checked out this horse's past performances and he doesn't do well as the favorite and is likely to be favored today. BLUE BUSINESS - Don't believe this runner will do much running in today's event. That last speed figure was run-of-the-mill when compared with today's class rating. PUTY BOY - Showed very little in the last race. Really don't see any chance of any change today.



    STRAIGHT WAGERS:
    #1 STORMY MANDATE is the play if we get odds of 1/1 or better

    RACE #8 - AQUEDUCT RACETRACK - 4:22 PM EASTERN POST
    The Distaff Handicap
    6.0 FURLONGS DIRT GRADE II FILLIES AND MARES THREE YEARS OLD AND UPWARD STAKES $200,000.00 PURSE

    #4 CLUSTER OF STARS
    #2 SPECTACULAR SKY
    #6 MISS D'ORO
    #7 VILLANESCA

    #4 CLUSTER OF STARS is the overall speed and pace profile leader in this stakes field this afternoon, and has excellent early speed abilities to compliment ... she's undefeated in a four race career to date, winning her last three "adventures" in "POWER RUN FASHION." Jockey Junior Alvarado and Trainer Steve Asmussen send her to the post for the "Saturday Feature" ... they've hit the board with 66% of their entries saddled as a team to date. #2 SPECTACULAR SKY has hit the board in four of her last five starts, winning three times in this recent streak of racing consistency, including back-to-back "POWER RUN WINS" in her 4th and 5th races back.

    The Walker Group Picks

    # 6 JAZZIT 5/2

    # 2 GIANT'S TOMB 8/5

    # 4 TOM CAT ALLIE 10/1

    JAZZIT has a solid shot to take this race. Elliott will most likely be able to get this gelding to break out sharply for this race. Ran a solid last race. With a nice Equibase class rating average of 106, has one of the best class advantages in this group. GIANT'S TOMB - Could provide positive returns based on decent recent Equibase Speed Figures with an average of 93. With a strong 92 average Equibase speed fig at the distance, seems well suited for today's contest. TOM CAT ALLIE - Overall the Equibase Speed Figures of this horse look strong in this outing. This animal has a very good win percentage in dirt routes.

    # 9 SHOW ME THE WAVE 4/1

    # 5 SCARECROW MAN 15/1

    # 6 DRINKIN THE GOLD 8/1

    SHOW ME THE WAVE has a competitive shot to take this race. Exhibits the look of a money-making play, averaging a solid 81 speed figure which is one of the most respectable in this group. Has solid front-end speed and should fare well against this group. Has been running in the most competitive company of the group recently. SCARECROW MAN - He has been running quite well and the Equibase speed figs are among the best in this group. Ran a very strong last race. DRINKIN THE GOLD - Vaunts solid speed figures on average overall when put alongside the rest of this group of horses. Ramirez and Muse are a strong pair for gains.

    Free MLB Baseball Prediction From Robert Ferringo:

    Take St. Louis (-1.5) over Milwaukee(4 p.m., Saturday, April 13)

    The Brewers are a bloody disaster right now. Corey Hart and Aramis Ramirez are both on the disabled list. Ryan Braun just got back in the lineup on Tuesday. The bullpen is already taxed because of their bad starting pitching, and the Brewers have been one of the worst fielding teams to start the season. Milwaukee is a train wreck. They have lost six of seven heading into Wednesday, and you know who has zero sympathy for them: the Cardinals. St. Louis snapped out of a slow start by taking three of their last four against San Francisco and Cincinnati. Now they step down in competition, but not in intensity, against the rival Brew Crew. Adam Wainwright is on the mound for this game, and he was sharp in his last start, going seven innings and giving up just two runs. Marco Estrada will get the ball for the Brewers. He also went seven innings and gave up two runs in his last start. But two differences: first, he is not Adam Wainwright. Second, that start came against the woeful Cubs. Estrada is 0-3 with a 4.66 ERA in his career against the Cardinals. I think he is going to get smoked, and he won't get any support from the beat up Brewers.

    NOTE: Milwaukee has changed the pitcher, Y. Gallardo is on the mound.

    This game actually has huge ramifications come next week when the playoffs start, as the Clippers currently own the 4th seed, but Memphis owns the better record. Both are gunning for a possible #3 seed in the West, so expect an all-out effort from the clubs tonight with the points and the Clippers being the way to go.

    Both teams enter on an upswing, the Clippers wining their last 4 straight up, while the Grizzlies have won 3 straight and 7 of their last 8 straight up.

    Tough call for sure, but the points look attractive to me, as the Clippers did eliminate the Grizzlies last May from the postseason, and the visiting team has been able to win the last pair and 4 of the last 5 straight up in this series.

    Los Angeles also owns a 3-1-1 spread mark the past 5 played in Memphis, and a 3-1-1 overall spread mark the last 5 games played between the clubs.

    Have to take whatever points they are giving in this one.

    Clippers the call.

    I like the home underdog to get the money in this one once again. I know, these are the defending World Series champion Giants and these are, well, the Cubbies. But in case you hadn't gotten the message, the home dog is always one of the best bets in sports - whether it's basketball, football, hockey or, yes, baseball - even the Cubbies.

    There's that built-in, hidden ingredient that not even an oddsmaker can figure out, and today I like the recipe for an upset at Wrigley Field, as the Cubs caught the Giants in a perfect spot yesterday, after Thursday's marathon between the two.

    What the two games proved is the Cubs can hang with Frisco, and now they'll want to take the series lead and at the very least ensure a series tie.

    In for a four-game-set, what we have here are the defending champs who arrived a bit overconfident and underestimating anything the Cubs are capable of, and yes, even the baby bears don't like to be disgraced in front of their home fans. Two nights back we saw them break out the bats, only to lose their lead and eventually the game. Yesterday they got the win.

    Now let's not start doing cartwheels just because we're being offered a home pup, I mean there are several today - the Pirates, Marlins and Indians are also getting money at home - but I like the Cubs to win back-to-back here.

    Trust me here, the Cubbies have set the tone for Saturday and Sunday. This is a value move with an investment on a plus-price. Take Chicago.

    My free winner is on the Miami Marlins to get it done as the home underdog, to the Philadelphia Phillies. Forget about the fact this would appear to be a complete mismatch on paper - I know Miami is doing its best intention of supplanting the Houston Astros as the worst team in baseball - I simply think this is a value play with the home pup.

    April and May are always the best months for home underdog. Often, it'll take the oddsmakers a month or so to catch on to the "sleeper teams" are just when and where to place the number correctly. But there are also those times they know better about certain teams, and you can read into the line and when it's a good time to take a number.

    For instance, don't you find it odd a 1-8 team is the home underdog by such a small number to a team like the Phillies for the second straight night? I would think the number on Philly should be higher - of course I still would have played the home dog theory - but it being lower, it indicates it's the right time to play the Marlins.

    All about value in baseball boys.

    5* MIAMI

    Saturday freebie is the Tigers to cool off the Athletics.

    Oakland edged Detroit 4-3 last night, as the A's have now won 9 straight games in the month of April after opening at 0-2.

    The A's will be hard-pressed to continue their winning ways, as the Tigers send Justin Verlander to the hill.

    Verlander has a 0.49 ERA over this last 5 starts against Oakland, and that includes a pair of wins in last October's division series win over the A's.

    Oakland will go with Brett Anderson who has had his success over the Tigers with a 3-1 record his last 4 decisions versus the Motown Cats.

    I don't think there will be very many runs scored, but I do think Verlander is able to stop the A's win streak at 9.

    Go with Detroit.

    Saturday free play on the O's over the Yanks.

    The Yankees won another game yesterday behind the strong outing from lefty CC Sabathia. He's owned the Birds in the past so it was no surprise he got the job done agains last night.

    Today, however, is a different story.

    While the Yankees are playing good baseball, they are getting ready to get shelled on the defensive side because Phil Hughes toes the slab in hopes of turning around the fortunes of his first start.

    Hughes was tagged for four runs (three earned) on eight hits over just four innings of work in a blowout loss to the Detroit Tigers.

    Hughes is perennially a slow starter, and his career ERA for the month of April is higher than any other month of the year. October is his second-worst. So what that tells us is Hughes is a slow starter and a weak finisher, but in the middle he does a pretty good job.

    Unfortunately for Yankees fans, it's still April and his first start was pretty bad.

    I'm not saying this pick is solely based on past performances, but it's hard to argue with how Hughes looked last April and how he looked in his first start of the 2013 campaign.

    I'm taking the Orioles to win the game outright as your free play of the day.

    My free winner for tonight is going to be on the Seattle Mariners, catching money at home, as the Texas Rangers aren't impressing me enough to think they can come in and dominate this team.

    Sure, they won the series opener over Felix Hernandez, but that doesn't mean a thing to me.

    What does mean something is how the M's responded - with a win last night.

    And my main thought process is the Mariners will be out for revenge for a second-straight night on general principle, and the Rangers will have their guards down once again.

    I'm pretty sure the M's thought they'd have a win in the bank in the series opener, with Hernandez on the hill. But it wasn't to be.

    The scrappy Mariners got it done last night and I like them to do so once again.

    Jim Feist's FREE Play for Saturday, April 13, 2013

    (5) NEW YORK RANGERS VS (6) NEW YORK ISLANDERS

    Take: over the total.

    The Islanders have upgraded the offense this season, 5th in the NHL in scoring, but the defense is still soft, 22nd in goals allowed. The Over is 52-25-4 in the Islanders last 81 games following a win and 5-2-1 over the total in their last 8 home games. Into town come the Rangers, and when these city rivals meet the over is 12-4 in the last 16 meetings, including 8-1 over the total in the last 9 meetings in this arena. Play the Rangers/Islanders over the total.

    Free Pick on Atlanta Braves +140

    The Atlanta Braves may be the best team in baseball this season so there is always value when they come into a game as a heavy underdog like this. You should always play on road underdogs with a money line of +100 to +150 like Atlanta when they have an excellent bullpen whose WHIP is 1.150 or better and their starting pitcher is playing on 5 or 6 days of rest. This system is 64-38 (63%) over the last 5 seasons.

    Atlanta is 19-5 against the money line over the last three seasons when playing in road games vs. poor fielding teams that are averaging 0.75 or more errors per game on the season. The Nationals have 8 errors in 9 games this season. Atlanta is hot offensively scoring 5.7 runs per game against right handed starters. They should be taking batting practice late in the game against a Nationals bullpen that has a 5.76 ERA this season.
