Handicappers Great Wins and Bad Beats of 2012; Saturday Selections at Laurel Park

December 28, 2012 | Gary Quill

For Saturday races the weather forecast calls for snow in the morning changing to rain in early afternoon, with high a temperature of 38 degrees. All selections were made based on a SLOPPY/MUDDY (i.e. OFF) TRACK at Laurel Park on Saturday Dec. 29th, which now appears unlikely, Arrrggghhh!!!! In the interest of time, take the following selections with a grain of salt IF the track remains FAST throughout the day. What a way to end the year!
