A Perfect “Ten” At Saratoga (8/7/15)

Aug 7th, 2015 | By | Category: Saratoga, Today's Picks

Fast and firm for the Friday card — a beautiful weather week, but not so sunny on the handicapping front with only one winner on top yesterday.  These cards are very difficult, so you need some racing luck to collect!  A great card tomorrow on Whitney Day — will be there with my hosts, Scott and Layni Rothbort.  Also want to thank Lois Engel at Pucker Ridge Farm to letting me and my friend Martin spend time with some beautiful horses today!

In race 2, Ten Twenty (#4) got claimed by crafty turf trainer, gets a much faster pace to set up late run and Irad signs on — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 10 and 5.

In race 7, Town Extension (#1) ran into a turf monster last time and fires every race, can work out a perfect trip from cozy inside post.  Key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 9 and 12.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 8, 2 and 6

Race 2: 4 (Best Bet) with 10 and 5

Race 3: 5, 2 and 1
