Bet Glen 2 Win

Selections for 04/20/02

I don't know what's up with Glenners, but I haven't heard from him since Wednesday. I hope he isn't sick again! Since I promised picks for the Lexington and the Tesio, we decided to take a stab at them ourselves. Hopefully Glenners will be back soon.

Cindy's Selections

Pimlico: Federico Tesio S.
Race 8 - Magic Weisner, Heir D'Twine, Derby Drive
Magic Weisner is going for his 6th straight win in Maryland and he looks to have a pretty good shot at it here. Heir D'Twine couldn't handle graded company last out and should find these a lot softer. Derby Drive likes Maryland and should do better than in the Rushaway if he can avoid another bad start.

Keeneland: Lexington S. (G2)
Race 8 - Easyfromthegitgo, Ethan Man, Tails of the Crypt
I expect Ethan Man and One Tuff Fox to go out in a speed duel and while Ethan Man will likely get the better of this, Easyfromthegitgo should have enough close to catch him at the end. Tails of the Crypt will be closing late and should be able to catch One Tuff Fox for the show spot.

Tex's Tips

Pimlico: Federico Tesio S.
Race 8 - Magic Weisner, Smoked Em, Derby Drive
Magic Weisner enters this race with a 5 race winning streak and I can't see this group ending the streak. Smoked Em will set the early pace but his distance limitations will cause him to fade in the stretch. Derby Drive looks to be the best of the rest.

Keeneland: Lexington S. (G2)
Race 8 - Ethan Man, Tails of the Crypt, Easyfromthegitgo
Ethan Man will take this race gate to wire, taking advantage of the infamous Keeneland speed bias. Tails of the Crypt will attempt to close but won't be able to catch the leader in the lane. Easyfromthegitgo has not been able to win in graded company and should bounce off his career best in the Louisiana Derby.
