“Ocean” Breezes At Saratoga (8/30/15)

Aug 30th, 2015 | By | Category: Saratoga, Today's Picks

Fast and firm for the Sunday card — had a decent Travers day with 9 winners listed, 3 on top, including the last race at 9-1, which gave me a flat bet profit for the day.  As for American Pharoah, he ran great, but the track may have favored closers and he ran hard all the way, so there is definitely no disgrace in getting beat in the last 100 yards.  Hope to see him in the Breeders Cup in late October.  As for today, there is a huge pick 6 carryover, so let’s see how I do!

In race 8, Ocean Night (#4) is working well for return and connections have had a great meet (except for yesterday) — should get a nice pace to set up late run.  Key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 7 and 3.

In race 9, Flashlight (#2) gets cozy inside post and should get a nice trip on or just off a soft pace here — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 1A and 5.  As for the pick 6, here’s a $108 ticket for you: 6 and 7 with 1, 7 and 4 with 4 with 2 with 5, 6 and 11 with 7, 10 and 1.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 4, 5 and 2

Race 2: 1, 5 and 7

Race 3: 5, 6 and 1

Race 4: 3 with 2 and 5

Race 5: 2 and 6

Race 6: 6 with 7 and 9

Race 7: 1, 7 and 4

Race 8: 4 (Best Bet) with 7 and 3

A “Watershed” Moment At Saratoga (8/29/15)

Aug 29th, 2015 | By | Category: Saratoga, Today's Picks

Fast and firm for an incredible Travers Day at Saratoga!  This is a great day for racing — especially if American Pharoah wins, but as a bettor. looking for value elsewhere.   Found some value yesterday with a 19-1 winner in race 3 and two other 10-1 top picks ran second, so let’s see how I do today!

In race 8, The Grade 1 Kings Bishop, Watershed (#4) broke his maiden in brilliant fashion and McLaughlin must think a lot of him to run him here — the price will be right.  Key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 4 and 3.

In race 9, Race Day (#1) ran too bad to be true at Monmouth and may just want to be a one-turn sprinter and will also be a good price for great connections.  Key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 7 and 5.

In race 3, Tango Time (#3) needed last and will get a better pace to set up late run today — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 5 and 4.  Amercian Pharoah looks like the main speed in Travers – should win, but Texas Red may be closing fast.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 8 with 1 and 3

Race 2: 6, 8 and 9

Race 3: 3 (Best Bet) with 5 and 4

Race 4: 4, 7 and 5

Race 5: 1 with 11 and 8

Race 6: 6 with 2 and 4

Aug 28th, 2015 | By | Category: Saratoga, Today's Picks

Fast and firm for the Statebred Friday card — great day yesterday with 4 winners on top and a great flat bet profit, so let’s see if I can keep it going right through Travers weekend!

In race 10, Force (#7) is working bullets for this and these connections know how to win races together — a nice stalking trip is in store today.  Key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 4 and 2.

Race 3: 4, 3 and 1

In race 5 , Ogermeister (#3) gets back on turf and has run well in turf sprints for a winning trainer, gets Castellano and should get a perfect trip behind the speed and run these down late — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 7 and 6.

In race 8, All in Fun (#1) has run consistent numbers for Shug and should get a ground saving stalking trip and be right there at a decent price – key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 11 and 3.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!
