Golden Gate Fields Picks for Saturday August 21

Race 1 – Horse 2   Count On Me     4-1 odds  (to win). Consistent check earner.

Race 2 – Horse 6   Vegas Luck    20-1  odds (to win/place/show). Either does really well or very poorly. Won 2 of its last 6 races, so I like these odds.

Race 3- Horse 6   Pineda             8-5 odds (to win).  Finished second in 3 of 4 career starts. Dropping to a lower level today gives a better chance.

Race 4- Horse 7   New Karma      2-1 (to win). Won last two races. Going with the favorite here again for a change. I like the outside draw.

Race 5 – Horse 10  Bella Ronski   6-1 (to place). Finished second on this course twice prior.

Race 6- Horse 3  Dance For Me Baby 4-1 (to win). Won last time. Going with the hot hand here.

Race 7- Horse 5  Crusher  7-2 (to win, place, and show). Earned checks in last 4 tries, as well as in 5 of its last 6 efforts.

Race 8- Horse 10  Papa Pagosa  20-1 (to show). Dam has five winners from 5 foils.

Race 9- Horse 4  Heartofthetemple 8-1 (to win, place, and show). Won last race here in May.

Vinnie the Greek bets exclusively on GGF races and has come out ahead there over a three year period. Vinnie generously offers his picks to us here at Groin out of the goodness of his garlic-y Italian heart. He tends to favor longshots in general. He keeps his bets fairly simple.
