“Skidding” At Saratoga (8/2/14)

Aug 2nd, 2014 | By | Category: Saratoga, Today's Picks

Fast and firm for Whitney Day at The Spa — listed 9 winners yesterday including an $11,000 pick 5.  But, my best bets ran terribly and if you weren’t playing rolling doubles, pick 3′s, pick 4′s and pick 5, you probably didn’t make a profit.  It’s my last day in Lake George — my sincere thanks to Scott and Layni Rothbort for their hospitality and to Lois Engel at Pucker Ridge Farm for reminding me what loving horses is all about!

In race 2, Skidmore (#3) comes back off a layoff after debuting at Gulfstream and running well despite a poor start — working well for great return trainer and will be a decent price for second start — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 7 and 6..  Here’s the entire card and good luck!
