Handicapping Picks for 01/13/2012
Happy Friday the 13th! For some people this could be a spooky day ~ I think it's the kind of day you can make your own luck. So grab your favorite black cat and let's crack the Pick 6 carryover!
8-La Malaguena is a filly I've been high on for nearly 6 months because she trains like an absolutely classy racehorse. Now that she finally gets to route off a bit of a freshening (and soundly trumping a decent workmate in the AMs), I'm definitely staying on the bandwagon. That's not an easy spot though, as Simon Callaghan's filly 7-She Spirit di Su should be tough getting Lasix for the 1st time in her US debut after being the morning rabbit for multiple graded stakes placed stablemate Falcon Rock.
I believe 1-Makoma has the right closing kick needed for this downhill course. I'm also going to look at 3-Whisper Louise getting blinkers off the G2 drop, 8-Talktoomuch who's off since August for Mitchell, and 4-Cute N Sassy who is unraced since May but yet to run a bad race.
Best of luck!
