BETTING GRIDS FOR ALL-STAKES PICK 5 ON STEPHEN FOSTER PREVIEW CARD AT CD

HALLANDALE BEACH, FL, May 28, 2021 — At this posting it’s impossible to know what kind of surface we will be dealing with when post time for Saturday’s fifth race at Churchill Downs. Our best guess is for a drying-out fast track.

  1. The Belmont is shaping up to be a very good horse race.

    May 29, 2021
    Churchill Downs

    6th race-Silver Dust. This 4 time graded stakes winner is in good form, If there is a horse that can beat him it’s #3 Night Ops. Add the 4,6 for your exotics.

    7th race-La Renoleta (8-1) Inside draw. Good connections and ran one back that beats these.Use the 3,7,8 to complete your exotics. Box the 4 in tri’s and super’s.

    8th race-Good betting race. Box the 2,4,7,9 with a win bet on the 7 Gam’s Mission (5-1)

    9th race-O Besos will absolutely be overbet, Flat win bet on the #2 Helium with straight exacts’s 2-3 and 2-5. no tri’s or super’s

    10th race- Tough race but money making potential.#8 Mojo Man (10-1) is fast and coming off a pair of tops, Empire of gold (7/2)is the one to beat and not the favorite. They are the top 2. Bango broke 11th in last and loves to be in the first flight, better trip, better results and the first time Edgemont Road went turf to dirt, He won, this is the second time.Toss the favorite Tap it to win. If Mojo Man is anywhere near 10-1 I suggest a win bet otherwise, box box box.

    Let’s go get the bad guy’s,
    Vin O’

  2. Vin, Good call on Gam’s Mission. Preferred other-way exacta but won’t be a sore winner on an otherwise ugly day for me. Lose the Night Ops photo, costing all pools, and bad juju will follow… it did.

  3. And yes on Belmont. Most reasonable people would agree that if they put a check mark next to any of the three likely favorites, they would feel confident–the quintessential good betting race!

  4. Thank you John. Gam’s mission will win a graded stakes race this year. She is developing into a very nice race horse and beat a solid field. Horse to watch.
