Day 30 At Saratoga — Say “What” (8/31)

Aug 31st, 2009 | By | Category: Saratoga, Today's Picks

A beautiful week on tap for the last week at The Spa with the track fast and the turf today is good.  I’ve learned so much during this meet and I can’t wait to write about it and share my thoughts with all of you!

As for today, in race 9, The Saratoga Dew, What A Pear (#5) can benefit from some early scratches to sit close to a slow pace and get the first jump on the closers in this 1 1/8 contest.  I will play her in an exacta box with Borrowing Base (#9) and key in doubles and pick 3′s.

In race 10, a competitive turf route, Midwatch (#1) can lead them all the way in this fairly paceless race and he can handle a soft course and this level of competition.  I’m boxing him in exactas with Dancing Tin Man (#3) and Ruff and Ready (#6) and keying in doubles and pick 3′s.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!
