Keeneland Picks for Friday
Race 8 - POST Time - 4:57 PM ET

Keeneland Picks 7-10-3-6

#7 Jades Gelly-missed by just a neck against a tougher field two back at Kentucky Downs then did not fire in a race washed off the turf here last out. She gets back on the turf today and runs for 33% winning trainer Ward.

#10 Lexintonia- came off a year and six month layoff last out and missed by only 2 lengths. She needed that one, runs for sharp turf trainer, gets Saez and will improve.

#3 Ghosting Kim-445k filly rallied to break her maiden last out. She is working well here including a bullet work best of 32 others and she is cut out to be a runner.

#6 Senora Roma-drew off to break her maiden last out by 11 lengths. She is improving and could be in the payoff at a price.


Note: we always play exacta boxes!

Free Aqueduct Picks

Aqueduct 6th race post time 4:01

We have some big prices and are looking for a BIG exacta hit!

#1 Lady by Choice (6-1)-ran at this same level three starts back while coming off a 4 month layoff, catching a sloppy track, and drew off to win by 3 lengths. She has since taken on tougher in two straight including a 70k stake last out in which she finished 3rd. She drops back down to 20k and 6-1 is a good price.

#6 Miss Liana (6-1)-went wire to wire in her last two in a row. She looks like the speed again today, has won 4 of 7 here and will be tough to catch at a price.

#8 Flat Awesome Jenny (4-1)-finished 3rd last out while running over her head in a stake. She drops down to 20k and that will help her chances.

#9 New Year’s Wish (3-1)-is coming off a year and two month layoff or Linda Rice. She was taking on tougher then and will be tough if Rice has her 100%.



Cashed bet Guarantee for Thursday is 9

If you purhcase our two track bundle and we fail to cash on at least 9 races
Then Saturday will be free!

Cashed bets = our top pick wins or we hit the exacta!


Free Long Shot Play for Friday

Note: we play exacta boxes

Aqueduct 8th race

#2 Danny California (8-1)-got hot towards the end of the year last year winning three in a row while beating tougher than he is facing today. He has been taking on much tougher since his win streak and this drop in class will make him tough-not to mention I.Oritz taking over in the saddle.

#3 Daddy Knows (7-2)-does his best running over this track winning 3 of his 6 starts here. He has the speed to be in it from the start and will be the one to catch.

#4 Control Group (5-2)-has rallied to win two of his last three. He has been in the money in 13 of 18 here and should run into the payoffs again today.

#5 Wild Banker (6-1)-is another who has rallied to win two of his last three. We have some good prices in this race and hopefully we are in line for a nice hit.


Note: My Father and partner on the site has been in the hospital for a month. He had to have his leg amputated from just below the knee down due to complications from diabetes. I simply run out of time in the day to look at Tampa after completing both Aqueduct and Keeneland. I will put a free play up for Tampa on days I actually find the time....sorry guys.

  • Robert Carrasco says:

    • tom battaglia says:

      I hope history repeats!…lol

  • Baseball Bob says:

    Time to fatten up our bankrolls!

  • Steven Wells says:

    Every time it says updating Tampa bay it never updates

    • tom battaglia says:

      Hello, The email that sends out tells you what free picks we have today. If Tampa is not listed then there is no free pick.

      • Karl Deppen says:

        Agree with you in race 5 at Gulf., am singling in the pick 5 #3 Tizzarunner. I think he’ll get the perfect set up behind the 6 and 7 !

        • tom battaglia says:

          I hope so! You never know until they spring the gate…lol

    • tom battaglia says:

      Sending them now.
      Thank-you!

  • Thanks for the hit on Big Red Girl at Aqueduct!

    • tom battaglia says:

      hope you made a few bucks!!

  • Roger Phelps says:

    Playing Oaklawn Park today. You have no picks. Ty anyway.

    • tom battaglia says:

      Sorry, we stick to our two main tracks and don’t jump around. I have no idea how others site handicap every single track going…..it’s impossible!

  • When you see a horse underperfoming, look at trainers record. A 2 for 47 record is not the horses fault. Same with jockeys. Stay away from bad records, never going to get live horses. Top 4 or 5 jocks win about 80% of races. Trainers also.

  • Gary Williams says:

    Do you pick Oaklawn races?

    • tom battaglia says:

      Hello, Sorry no….we have our hands full trying to handicap two tracks. I have no idea how others sites handicap every single track going…..

  • Ken Reamer says:

    Thank you Mr. Battaglia. Your the best.

  • fountain of youth 1 8 /81 DRAIN THE CLOCK MIGHT LEAD ALONG WAY //G H SHOULD BE COMING

  • IN TAMPAY BAYS 4TH RACE,IT IS DO OR DIE FOR#3 ,PURPLE PEOPLEEATER! IF HE CANT BEAT THIS FIELD, IT’S OFF TO VISIT ELMERS FACTORY!

    • tom battaglia says:

      Yep, you are right…that is very weak field. It’s hard for me to really like a horse when his trainer won 2 of 47 races all of last year. Plus, there is other speed in there and if she does not make the lead, she has never passed a horse in her life….and she will be 9-5 or less…..tough one….lol

  • Karl Deppen says:

    Agree with your picks in the 5th at Gulf., I’m using the 1,7,9 to finish out my pick 5 and will be rooting for that beautiful grey #1 Reliability to be the fastest off the pace !

    • tom battaglia says:

      Sounds good…I hope you hit it..!

    • tom battaglia says:

      We are not having great luck today with the scratches…

  • Steve Weigel says:

    When is the Tampa Thursday selection coming out?

    • tom battaglia says:

      Hello,
      Tampa is dark today, we will be back in action tomorrow.

      • Steve Weigel says:

        Sorry. Open Wednesday and Dark Thursday – Go figure? Thanks Tom. You’re picks are great. Will you have Churchill picks in the Spring?

        • tom battaglia says:

          Thanks a lot ….yes we will have Churchill and Keeneland coming up!

  • Weather bad up north. Only play GP and Tpa

    • tom battaglia says:

      Thanks for the heads up. We hope it clears up for Aqueduct towards the end of the week!

  • albert pasinella says:

    great job yesterday love the free picks no one better than you

    • tom battaglia says:

      Thanks a lot, I hope you cashed a bet or two! The free pick for Aqueduct today will be posted in about an hour.

  • What a day at GP. Can’t wait for Aqu tomorrow. GP 11 almost perfect call. Had ex and tri. SFC also came in

    • tom battaglia says:

      Thanks!…Aqueduct will be out tomorrow morning….

  • Super pick at GP. Six horse field pays $151

    • tom battaglia says:

      Thanks man!…Hope you hit something!

  • Tom I just received your first email. So I looked at your longshot pick and bet it! Thank you great hit and a great start for me!

    • tom battaglia says:

      That’s awesome….perfect timing for you!!

  • bobby metz says:

    great call in the 4th at gulfstream!!

    • tom battaglia says:

      Thanks a lot….hope you hit it…!

    • bobby metz says:

      gotta apologize for calling you mike earlier…fraudian slip,mike battaglia was one of my favorite race callers

      • tom battaglia says:

        No worries! I sat in the announcers both many times with him growing up…!

  • Would be a lot less costly if you could limit your picks to three instead of four. would be more prosperous too. Your picks are always right on.

    • tom battaglia says:

      Thanks for the compliment….we do not have four selections in every race……and sometimes that 4th pick sneaks in there and gives us a big payoff…lol

  • bobby metz says:

    hey mike…i’ll be rooting for your ex box in r4 at gulfstream,but i’ll be making elliereeseaston my top pick,solid improvement in her 2nd start.anyone looking for a late day saver,consider BRIX in the finale at santa anita,a wide open turf event.extra distance could get him home.good luck everyone and GO TAMPA BAY!

    • tom battaglia says:

      Thanks for the pick!…..I am with you…go Tampa Bay!

  • Why do I have to sign in every time? I should be already in

    • tom battaglia says:

      Hello,
      There is no sign in on this page…

  • Love the way you show your picks above! Please continue this way!

    • tom battaglia says:

      Thanks for the feedback…..now we just need a bunch of winners!

  • 4 of 5 on exactas @ Leopardstown this morning so sharing a tip & laugh for race 6, i spent a couple hours researching bets this morning only to bet my & my wifes birthdays w/ 22 17 4 &9 lol

  • tom battaglia says:

    Trainer Persaud won only 5 out of 164 all of 2020…so far this year 4 out of 37….and I was hoping 2021 would return to a somewhat normal year…..WRONG….

  • John Lavigne says:

    I think your picks are great! Better than mine.

    • tom battaglia says:

      Thanks a lot…but it’s not us against us….it’s us against them! lol

  • this is the best setup yet meaning your new format ,very easy ro read and understand Thanks Tom

    • tom battaglia says:

      Thanks a lot….we keep trying to improve…now we just need a bunch of winners!

    • tom battaglia says:

      Two tracks is about our limit….I have no idea how other sites can handicap more than that each day.

  • tom battaglia says:

    Nice exacta hit at Aqueduct…!

  • tom battaglia says:

    Well first timer beat us in the first. Trainer was 0 for 15 with his debut runners and 1 for 29 on the year…..what can you do….

    • Tom – your site is so easy to navigate now , Thank you for the vast improvement. I am a straight win player. Do you ever have a strong play at tracks you are focusing on.

      • tom battaglia says:

        Thanks for the feedback. The reason we put a star rating on our races are for that very reason. The three star races are the ones we really like so if you are just a win player those are the races to bet into. Yes, we do play exacta boxes, and yes we always root for the biggest price combination to hit but that doesn’t change the fact that in those races, normally our top pick is the one to bet.
