Handicapping Picks for 12/30/2011

race 2 - #1 Zackn'mat 3-1

first of two races at a mile for two year old colts & geldings (always fun following potential Kentucky Derby candidates)...this race looks like the tougher heat...lots of hype on a couple in here...I'm going with Zackn'mat because i really liked his last race...this son of Northern Afleet made a nice rally & had he not been in a little tight in the lane, he probably would have broke his maiden in last...middle distance seems well within his scope.
