Getting “Brave” At Saratoga (8/31)

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

Fast and good for the Wednesday card — we are in the last week of the meet and I’m getting hot.  Had a great Travers Day with best bets winning at 7-1 and 5-1 so I will try and keep up the momentum today!

In race 5, Spa City Lover (#10) meets a weak field and has done little wrong in 3 starts — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #7.

In race 10, Dominant Currency (#7) could give Angel Penna a much needed win in this turf event — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 3 and 1.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Aug 27th, 2011 | By | Category: Saratoga, Today's Picks

Fast and good on Travers Day with an incredible 13 race card on tap!  Had a proficient day yesterday when I listed 9 out of 10 winners and several exactas, but only two winners on top so I will try and do better today.  Stay safe everyone on the east coast and good luck if you are betting Saratoga today!

In race 11, The Grade 1 Kings Bishop, Caleb’s Posse (#2) found his forte as a late running sprinter in The Amsterdam at a big price and can repeat with a sizzling pace in front of him today — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #1.

In race 13, Windafull (#1) gets a cozy post and less ground in a race without a lot of speed — can wire these at a decent price.  Key in all late multi-race wagers and play an exacta box with #’s 8 and 10.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

In race 9, Saginaw (#3) cuts back to 7 furlongs and gets a good pace to rally into — any moisture in the track will be beneficial.  Key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 8 and 6.

In race 5, Colossal Gift (#7) can stay close to a soft pace and hold off the closers in the turf marathon.  Key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 9 and 3.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!
