| December 12, 2020 5:27 am PDT

For Saturday’s picks and predictions, I went with Aqueduct Racetrack, Gulfstream Park, and Tampa Bay Downs — mostly because they all featured good stakes races, particularly in Gulfstream’s case, where five stakes matches were on the card.

Remember that while I review the richest Saturday races at each track, you can always find the full race-card for them all at one of our recommended online racebooks.

Now, on to my summary of horse racing picks, tips, and predictions for Saturday, December 12, 2020.

Good luck!

My Saturday Predictions for Aqueduct Racetrack

  • Race 3: Wow Brown 6/1 (win)
  • Race 7: Dudley Square 9/2 (win)
  • Race 7: Singapore Trader 20/1 (show)
  • Race 8: Sea Foam 5/2 (win)

I found a fourth-favored underdog in race 3 and a second-favored in race 8 (also known as the Alex M M. Robb Stakes), but I stuck with the morning line favorite in race 7, just because I could. Race 7 was also where I spotted a profitable show wager in a 20/1 longshot. A good day.

Tampa Bay Downs Tips for Saturday

  • Race 3: Jackson 3/1 (win)
  • Race 7: Heiressall 5/2 (win)
  • Race 9: Crown and Sugar 3/1 (win)
  • Race 9: Caught Up in You 20/1 (show)

Speaking of good days, Antonio A. Gallardo was featured in all three of my winner predictions at Tampa Bay Downs. I pegged him for taking a colt to victory in race 3 (the Marion County Florida Sire Stakes) and a filly to the winner’s circle in race 7, also known as the City of Ocala Florida Sire Stakes.

Then, I called his mount for the win in race 9, an allowance optional claiming race were I also found a viable 20/1 longshot for a solid show bet.
