“Almon” Joy Is Sweet At Saratoga (7/24/15)

Jul 23rd, 2015 | By | Category: Saratoga, Today's Picks

Fast and firm for opening day at The Spa with a very difficult 10 race card on tap, so let’s try and kick off the meet with a sweet start!

In race 8, Doc Almon (#6) is in great form for top trainer and Jacobson has worked him upstate for this and wants to get off to a good start this year — should get a very fast pace and be flying late.  Key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 3 and 8.

In race 9, the Grade 2 Lake George, Jellicle Ball (#3) runs in the US for the first time –  trainer’s numbers are astronomical with these types and Velazquez lands here.  Key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 12 and 5.  Here’s the entire card (looks like Jacobson has some live runners ) and good luck!

Race 1: 5, 4 and 3

Race 2: 1, 5 and 9

Race 3: 10, 7 and 12 (use 1 if scratches)

Race 4: 6, 2 and 3

Race 5: 6, 2 and 8

Race 6: 5, 2 and 6

Race 7: 10 with 12 and 13 (use 5 if scratches)

Race 8: 6 (Best Bet) with 3 and 8

Race 9: 3 (Best Bet) with 12 and 5

Race 10: 4, 6 and 15 (use 14 if scratches)
