Breeders' Cup Juvenile runner-up Pappacap will try to get back into the winner's circle when he leaves the starting gate on Saturday in the 2022 Lecomte Stakes at the Fair Grounds Race Course in New Orleans. He is the 8-5 morning-line favorite in the 2022 Lecomte Stakes odds. The Steve Asmussen-trained Epicenter is 9-5 in the nine-horse 2022 Lecomte Stakes field. Post time is 7:20 p.m. ET.
Before you make any Lecomte Stakes 2022 picks or bets, you NEED to see the latest picks from racing insider and Beyer Speed Figure maker Bob Weir.
A Saratoga Springs-based racing insider and Beyer Speed Figure maker, Weir has studied the sequence and constructed his wagers in his analysis below. A two-time qualifier for the prestigious National Horseplayers Championship in Las Vegas, Weir has produced multiple five-figure days at the track over the years, including a $60,000 Pick 6 at Del Mar in 2014. Last year he was on fire. He hit the exacta in the Sam F. Davis Stakes, Tampa Bay Derby and Peter Pan Stakes, the trifecta in the Risen Star Stakes, Blue Grass Stakes and Pennsylvania Derby and the superfecta in the Belmont Stakes, with the Tampa Bay score returning $1,414. Those were just some of his scores in 2021.
Now, Weir has handicapped the Lecomte Stakes 2022 field, made his picks and constructed his bets.
One surprise: Weir's top pick is not Pappacap, even though he is the 8-5 morning-line favorite! "He has to be vulnerable in this spot and will be bet heavily based on his two-year-old form," Weir told SportsLine.
Weir prefers two horses who "look eerily similar." Weir also says there's a "mystery horse" with double-digit odds who "might be worth a look." Weir is including these horses in his 2022 Lecomte Stakes bets, and so should you. You ABSOLUTELY need to see his picks before locking in any of your own!
