Saturday Stakes: Twas the Saturday before Christmas
SATURDAY, DECEMBER 21, 2019
by: Rich Bieglmeier
'Twas the Saturday before Christmas and throughout the land.
Horseplayers didn't know what to do, for only two stakes races were planned.
To Guaranteed Tip Sheet they went for picks made with great care,
Knowing winners are normally found there.
In New York and Florida, the big races will run,
Ah, hitting exactas can be so much fun.
At Aqueduct, Race 8, it's the Queen's County
A field of seven will run for $125,000 in bounty.
STAN THE MAN is the favorite, leaving from gate two.
With a drop-in class and best speed figure to boot, he's our pick too.
ROAMING UNION could be the toughest he faces,
He has two wins and four thirds in seven Aqueduct races.
Last time out, MAJOR CABBIE picked up the pace.
Better fractions are usually good news for the next race.
For trainer Kelly Breen, HAN SENSE will make his second run,
An angle at 25% Breen has won.
Our Aqueduct picks are in, it's off to Florida then,
The MR. PROSPECTOR Stakes is Gulfstream's race 10.
IMPERIAL HINT is even money, but he lost to XY JET in Dubai
Do they switch order, we see no reason why.
Instead, it's an upset we see.
We'll take the 5, LASTING LEGACY.
He's found the tape first in his previous three,
The last at Monmouth was as fast as can be.
DIAMOND OPS is our fourth horse,
With four wins in five races on Gulfstream's course.
And with that, our stakes picks are in,
The only thing left is to see which win.
We hope they cash so you have some cheer,
Either way, Happy Holidays and a Happy New Year!
Good luck at the races!
