Play On “Pay” At Saratoga (7/31)

Jul 31st, 2011 | By | Category: Saratoga, Today's Picks

Fast and firm on a beautiful day in upstate NY — had a good day yesterday with 3 winners on top (7 listed) during a difficult Saturday card so let’s see how I do today.

In race 9. The Grade 1 Ruffian, Payton d’Oro (#5) gets a great stalk and pounce trip as the favorite in good field — I’m keying in all doubles and the late pick 3/4, plus playing an exacta box with #2.

In race 10, Hear the Footsteps (#4) will sit right off the speedy Writingonthewall (#5) and prevail for Linda Rice, who has been very cold so far this meet.  I’m keying in all late multi-race wagers and playing an exacta box with #’s 2 and 5.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 4 with 5 and 3

Race 2: 5 with 2 and 10

Race 3: 8 and 3

Race 4: 10, 3 and 4

Race 5: 6 with 4 and 3

Fast and good for fabulous 14 race card on Haskell Day — only went 1 for 12 on yesterday’s card with 4 winners listed so I have to do better today!

In race 11, The Grade 3 Matchmaker, Ravi’s Song (#6) really took to the turf last time and has run against some pretty tough horses on dirt and can close again and beat this group at a price — I’m keying in all doubles and pick 3′s and playing an exacta box with #’s 4 and 2.

In race 6, The Jersey Derby, Beachcombing (#8) has run two great races on the local turf course and is ready to win today — I’m keying in all doubles and pick 3′s and playing an exacta box with #’s 6 and 2.

In race 5, The Regret, Hour Glass (#3) is going for the hottest trainer on the planet and has the numbers to win this from just off the pace — I’m keying in all doubles and pick 3′s and playing an exacta box with #7.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!
