These are picks that are off-the-cuff, from the night before race day, and so a caveat: All are subject to change, depending on how the track is playing. And a reminder: I sucked on Day One, not winning a single thing.
I will still stand by two picks I made days ago: Smokey Stover and Nashoba's Key. I feel pretty good about Smokey's love of mud, and I'll root for a Carla Gaines horse any day in a field of fillies and mares.
So here goes, picking winners only (not a Pick 6):
Juvey Fillies: Indian Blessing
Juvenile: Tale of Ekati
FIlly and Mare Turf: Nashoba's Key
Sprint: Smokey Stover
Mile: Excellent Art
Distaff: Hystericalady or Lear's Princess
Turf: Dylan Thomas or English Channel
Classic: All! Just kidding. If I had to choose one ... I can't. Street Sense, and in that mud? Hard Spun.
I wasn't kidding about random dime superfectas. Pick two favorites and two longshots and box 'em for a dime for each race, folks. It's a mere $2.40 bet. If it hits, it'll pay for your day. Good luck, y'all.
