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!
