Getting “Crazy” At Saratoga (7/30/16)

Jul 30th, 2016 | By | Category: Saratoga, Today's Picks

Fast and firm for the Saturday card — only 2 more small priced winners yesterday and this has been a trip that has not been successful.  Too many maiden races where form is limited and many horses who just didn’t figure at all seem to be running their eyeballs out.  There is a $500,000 carryover in the pick 6 which will easily be a million by post time and it is a quality card today, so let’s see how we do.  One last thing — I just wanted to thank my buddy Scott Rothbort for inviting us to his home in the Lake George area for over 10 years now and taking me out on the boat to swim in Lake George.  And thanks to Lois Engel who owns Pucker Ridge Farm in Warrensburg for letting me come to see their horses — she is a great supporter of racing and a great ambassador for the sport.  Back to the card today without scratches….

In race 4, The Grade 2 Amsterdam, Maniacal (#2) steps up but may have things his own way on the lead and post the upset at 5-1 or so – key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 7 and 5.

In race 6, Esther the Queen (#8) has good positional speed in a race without much and speed has been good at this 5.5 furlong distance on turf — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 10 and 2.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!
