Handicapping Picks for 03/16/2012

Race #6 - Rating = 2
#9 Cyclometer - Fair odds 8/5

Exactas: 9 over 3,4,5,6,7,8 and (reverse) 3,4,5,6,7,8 over 9

Cyclometer led late and settled for 2nd (beaten just a ½ length) in his career debut in October then 3 ½ months later in his 2nd career start on 2/9 won easily in a field of 10, with more gas left in the tank and with a strong 100 Equibase Speed Figure bound to be improved upon in only the 3rd start of his career today. He beat OPEN (not restricted) maidens last out and now races at the Cal-Bred NW1X level so he can win today and still win again at the open NW1X level on his way to becoming a very nice sprinter for veteran trainer Headley.
