Feeling The “Energy” On Saratoga’s Opening Day (7/20/12)

Jul 20th, 2012 | By | Category: Saratoga, Today's Picks

Fast and firm for the Friday card — so excited to be back handicapping at The Spa, the most challenging meet in the country.  Trying to pick a winner is not for the faint of heart, but I’ve done pretty well the last 3 years on my site so let’s see if I can get a fast start this year!

In race 7, Cosmic Energy (#2) was victimized by a slow pace in last at Belmont and will get a more contested pace to run at from a ground saving post — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 7 and 11.

In race 10, Way of the West (#4) has a win early turf sire and great connections for turf sprints — works say ready at a decent price.  Key in all late multi-race wagers and play an exacta box with #’s 7 and 10.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 2 with 4 and 8

Race 2: 1, 2 and 12

Race 3: 3, 2 and 8

Race 4: 6 and 8

Race 5: 6, 2 and 1

Race 6: 8, 5 and 9

Race 7: 2 (Best Bet) with 7 and 11

Race 8: 7 with 1 and 4

Race 9: 4, 5 and 7

Race 10: 4 (Best Bet) with 7 and 10
