An “Alluring” Wager At Saratoga (8/31/13)

Aug 31st, 2013 | By | Category: Saratoga, Today's Picks

Sloppy and yielding for the soggy Saturday card with races 1,2,4,6, 11 and 12 off the turf.  Too bad about the weather — this was a great card before mother nature got a hold of it, so play cautiously.

In race 8, The Grade 2 Benard Baruch, Turallure (#3) is rounding back into form and loves a soft course — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 5 and 7.

In race 9, The Grade 1 Forego, Lea (#5) has faced some of the best horses on turf and switches to the main track against some toughies, but has handled an off track before and is the wild card at a price — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 1 and 6.

In race 7, Tenango (#3) loves the slop and gets a contested pace to set up late run — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 10 and 2.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 13, 14 and 11

Race 2: 2B, 6 and 7

Race 3: 6, 10 and 1

Race 4: 1A, 12 and 11

Aug 30th, 2013 | By | Category: Saratoga, Today's Picks

Fast and firm for the Friday card — it’s the last weekend at The Spa and I’ve had a pretty good meet, but let’s see if I can go out with a bang!

In race 8, Unbelievable Dream (#2) couldn’t close into a slow pace in last turf race at The Spa, but should get some very fast fractions to set up late run at a good price — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 9 and 6.

In race 9, Dendrite (#11) is 0 for 22, but has a good stalking post and the figures fit against these — key in all late multi-race wagers and play an exacta box with #’s 5 and 4.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 1, 3 and 6

Race 2: 6, 3 and 2

Race 3: 7 and 3

Race 4: 7, 5 and 8

Race 5: 2 and 3

Race 6: 2 and 6

Race 7: 3, 5 and 8

Fast and firm for the Wednesday card — had a good day on Monday if you consider that I only had 1 winner on top, but listed 7 winners, including a $1500 pick 4 in races 2-5, so I will try and keep it up today. Headed to the US Open thanks to my buddy Dan Prine, so I have to post without scratches, so play accordingly.

In race 4, Flash Forward (#6) is the inform closer in a race packed with speed — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 3 and 4.

In race 7, Holiday’s Jewel (#7) had good positional speed in a mile turf race without much pace and likes this course — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 3 and 5.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!
