Races of the Week
Last week, Liberty Bull finished twelfth in the Arkansas Derby. Cool Coal Man finished ninth in the Blue Grass Stakes. So far this year, a flat $2 win wager on my selections has yielded a net profit of $34.80 on total wagers of $46.
Today, the Daily Racing Form's races of the week are the Lexington Stakes at Keeneland and the Santa Barbara Handicap at Santa Anita. Equibase's race of the week is the Bill Hartack Memorial Handicap at Hawthorne.
My selection in the Lexington is Salute the Sarge. Salute the Sarge is 4 for 6 on artificial tracks. He can come from off the pace and the inside post should help him. The Form provides free past performances.
I'll bet Forest Melody in the Santa Barbara. She's taking a big step up in class, but she's the only early speed in the race and might be able to steal it on the front end. The Form provides free past performances.
I'll bet Good and Lucky in the Hartack. Good and Lucky is taking a big step up in class, but his recent Beyer figures are competitive with the rest of this field, and he could get loose on the lead. Equibase provides free past performances.
