Preakness Day Selections 5.20.2023

Well,  10 Taxed runs a big race to win the BES Stakes to set up some nice potential double payouts.  While only 7 runners are running in the Preakness, there are still opportunities to make some money on the day. Our feature image was taken at Belmont with Javier Castellano riding Lost Luggage.  Rooting for Mage to win today and give Jay a chance at the Triple Crown.

Race  8:  1 Atone TGaff and Trainer Maker will have this one ready, and I would add in TAP’s 7 Emmanuel along with 2 Speaking Scout.

Late Pick 5 starting with Race 9 at Pimlico

Race 9:  2 Beguine and 5 Like Moulin Rouge in a difficult  race .  If you can afford to spread, use 6 Gunning along with 3 I’m The Boss Of Me, and 7 Eidy Meeny Minny Mo.

Race 10: it will be important spread in this race. 5 Smoking Jay, 3 Artemis Cuty Limits, 10 Coppola, and 11 Noble Emotion along with 13Beer Can Man.

Race 11: 7 Nakotomi and 8 Straight No Chaser are logical plays, but add in the two Brittany Russell (almost 60%) Trainees to the outside 9 Wonderwherecrsigis and 9 Hello Hot Rod

Race 12: stick with Brittany Russell’s 5 Curcling The Drain and Motion’s 9 Nagirroc

Race 13: 3 Mage is the obvious and 1 National Treasure will try to steal the race. 5 Red Route One is getting good at the right time and 6 Perform is a good long shot to hit the board.  An interesting trifecta play would be 3mage, 7 Blazing Sevens, and 6 Perfrom all progeny of Good Magic.

Play at Churchill for 1 mile and 1/2 mile race:

Maker has been very adept in training for these types of races so play 2 Bay Street Money and 7 Therapist along with Maker’s other horses 8 Yamoto and 9 Another Mystery in exacta and trifecta boxes.
