2012 Super Saturday Picks
By Dana Byerly, Hello Race Fans Co-founder
Happy Super Saturday!
After a long, fun day Chris Rossi crushed with 7 of 10 picks and a perfect 5-5 at Santa Anita! He also scored $44.80. Next up was J.J. Hysell ($28.80) and Melissa Nolan ($15.50) with 5 picks and Ted Grevelis with 4 picks. Looking at it from the money perspective, Rossi still crushed with Hysell in second and yours truly in third with $19.50 from 2 picks. There were also a few picks that turned out to be nice exacta fillers: Derek Brown picked Nereid at 13-1 in the Rodeo Drive and Valerie Grash picked Joyful Victory at 7-1 in the Zenyatta. We hope you had a fun, profitable day, we’ll be back in November with Breeders’ Cup picks!
While we want you to form your opinions and make your own picks, we also realize that you might be curious about who we like. You can also check our new Handicapping Wire for recent handicapping and analysis from around the web.
Our guest ‘cappers join us again, with a new addition! Special guest ‘cappers include Derek Brown of WirePlayers (@NJDerek), Ted Grevelis of Grevelis Racing / Owning Racehorses (@tlgrevelis), Mellisa Nolan of KTA/KTOB (@KeeneGal) and first time guest ‘capper Alan Mann of Left of the Gate (@alanLATG).
We’ll do a mythical $2 win bet to see who ends up with with most “cash”, we’ll also keep track of who picks the most winners. With 10 Grade 1 races spread over two tracks we’ve broken out our selections by track. And, just like last year, each ‘capper has provided a “play of the day” (or in some cases “play of the track”), indicated by an asterisk.
