Going To “Rio” At Saratoga (7/28/13)

Jul 28th, 2013 | By | Category: Belmont, Today's Picks

Fast and firm for the Sunday card — may have some rain which could change things, so play accordingly.  All my picks assume turf racing and I will try and keep the momentum from yesterday where I had 3 winners on top and just missed with a 10-1 shot in race 1 and a 5-1 shot later in the card.

In race 3, Riolama (#4) goes for great turf connections and can sit a good trip and run these down as the favorite — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 1A and 7.

In race 10, The Grade 2 Amsterdam, Declan’s Warrior (#3) gets off the rail and can rally into a suicidal pace — any moisture in the track will be a bonus.  Key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 6 and 2.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!
