Catching The “Orient Express” At Saratoga (8/30/14)

Aug 30th, 2014 | By | Category: Saratoga, Today's Picks

Fast and firm for the Saturday card — one of the most difficult cards to handicap this year at The Spa.  Yesterday was not easy either, but I did manage to have the cold late double and my 3 winners on top did give my followers a small flat bet profit, so let’s see how I do today.

In race 9, Orient Harbor (#1) is the in-form closer in turf sprint packed with speed and has the right connections — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with 3′s 7 and 8.

In race 6, Prosecution (#10) cuts back to sprint for very profitable connections and can work out a great stalking trip from this post — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 9 amd 4.

In race 8, The Grade 2 Prioress, Princess Violet (#8) prefers sprinting and should get a perfect outside stalking trip from here — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 3 and 6.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!
