Super Saturday - Triple Crown on The Line

36 years. 

That's how long it's been since the last Triple Crown winner. 

I wasn't even born yet.

What else can I say about California Chrome at this point? He's taken us on an unforgetable ride and now he's only 1 win away from immortality. His high cruising speed fits great in the Belmont Stakes
and I don't have any concerns about the distance. 

In my opinion, California Chrome has looked better than ever since settling in at Belmont Park. His stride looks great, he seems to get over the track effortlessly during his gallops, and his workout was very impressive. Everything is set. Let's get a clean and safe trip for all of the contenders.

I think we will have a new Triple Crown Champion tomorrow: California Chrome.

On the wagering side, there is no value in betting California Chrome to win, but there are other ways to make money with California Chrome. To me, he's a freebie, so he's a single in my pick-3's, pick-4, pick-6, Daily Doubles and more.  

Perfect example: I keyed California Chrome in my Kentucky Derby Pick-4 and got back a nice $394 payout. Same with the $170 Kentucky Derby Exacta. 

He will be a very short price in the Belmont. It will tough to make money with him, but at the end of the day, i'm not really looking to make a lot of money. I like him, I know what his odds will be, and I think he's the best horse in the field.

If you take away what this race means and imagine it was just another race on a Thursday, it would lead me to the same type of wagering strategy: single him in my exotics and look for value in the other races where I think the fields are wide open.

I have not finished building my pick-3/4/6 etc plays for Saturday yet but will tweet them out tomorrow so stay tuned to my twitter. What I do have are some blogs with plays for the Met Mile, and an Exacta and Trifecta on the Belmont. 

Here are my full card selections for Saturday's card at Belmont Park and Santa Anita Park!

I watch horses run around.
