Having A “Powerful Instinct” At Saratoga (8/3/15)

Aug 3rd, 2015 | By | Category: Saratoga, Today's Picks

Fast and firm for the Monday card — had an incredible day yesterday and almost listed every winner, but fell short in the last race.  3 winners on top including a 9-1 first time starter ridden by Taylor Rice, so after 5 cards that I’ve handicapped, I am 12 for 54 with an ROI of $2.15.  Considering the quality of the cards, I am truly happy to have a flat bet profit, but I know things can go south in a hurry, so let’s see how I do today.  For all my followers, I will be in Saratoga from the 5th to the 8th, and I look forward to spending time with friends and hope we win a few dollars as well.

In race 7, Powerful Instinct (#14) sneaks in off the also eligible list with the best turf connections in the country — meets statebreds today and will be a decent price from tough post.  Key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 9 and 4.

In race 9, My Cara Mia (#5) has run well in turf sprints and gets a brutal pace set up to favor her late run at a great price — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 2 and 9.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 7, 6 and 1

Race 2: 4, 7 and 8

Race 3: 8, 6 and 4

Race 4: 4, 6 and 1

Race 5: 10, 1 and 4

Race 6: 7, 9 and 10

Race 7: 14 (Best Bet) with 9 and 4

Race 8: 2 with 1 and 4

Race 9: 5 (Best Bet) with 2 and 9

Race 10: 12, 1 and 10
