Day 25 Recap At Saratoga — No Day At The Beach (8/26)

Aug 26th, 2009 | By | Category: Saratoga, Today's Picks

Let me just say that 4 weeks into the Saratoga meet and I feel like I’m being buried in the sand.  I can’t consistently pick winners on top and my friend Brian is out-handicapping me.  Today I listed 6 winners, but only two on top.  And I only hit two exacta boxes out of seven, so my most profitable bet the past 4 weeks seems like a distance memory.  The tide may be turning and not in my favor.

But let’s look at the positive side.  My two best bests ran well — Nedjma even won and paid $9.80. I also listed three doubles and two exacta boxes, plus a $168 pick 3 (races 4-6).  So, it wasn’t a complete washout, but not the way I wanted to start out Travers week.  Trying to make nice sandcastles on Thursday!
