Gathering Up Some Winners At Saratoga (7/23)

Jul 23rd, 2011 | By | Category: Saratoga, Today's Picks

Fast and firm at the Grand Old “Spa” — just got back from London so I missed opening day, but speed looked good in the heat so we may have a repeat today!

In race 9, Gathering Cloud (#5) is working really well for this, fires every time from close range, gets a much better post and lands Castellano who is the best turf rider at Saratoga — I’m keying in all doubles and pick 3′s and playing an exacta box with #’s 3 and 4.

In race 4, Houston Harbor (#2) is the absolute speed from the inside and will have no excuse not to wire these as the favorite under Dominguez — I’m keying in all doubles and pick 3′s and playing an exacta box with #4.

In race 8, Notell (#2) goes second time off a layoff for crafty turf trainer and Castellano lands here — may try to be closer in a fairly paceless field and can take this at a price.  I’m keying in all doubles and pick 3′s and playing an exacta box with #’s 10 and 6.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!
