Handicapping Picks for 01/12/2012

race 7 - #8 Slim Shadey 12-1

taking a shot here...thought his stateside debut was a decent effort...floated wide early & allowed to settle near back of the field...Flores guided him toward the rail in the lane & more that anything ended up schooling him for his next effort...love to see Flores ride him back...good value in wide open race.

have you got on twitter.com yet? yesterday we connected on a 13-1 winner at Gulfstream...real time opinion after seeing the horses warming up...find me at twitter.com/larryzapeye
