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!

Race 5:
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.

Race 7:
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!
