“Forrest” Fires At Saratoga (7/31/17)

Jul 31st, 2017 | By | Category: Saratoga, Today's Picks

Fast and firm for the Monday card — best bets ran well yesterday and exactas up and down were very profitable, but picking winners has been a difficult task at the meet so far and that has to change soon, so let’s see how I do today.

In race 8, Epping Forest (#6) cuts back to sprint and should be flying late at a decent price — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 8 and 9.

In race 6, Frosty Lady (#5) is the absolute speed here and may get brave on the lead at a price under Irad — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 10 and 3.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 4, 3 and 5

Race 2: 7 with 10 and 5

Race 3: 3, 1 and 4

Race 4: 6, 10 and 4

Race 6: 5 (Best Bet) with 10 and 3

Fast and firm for the Sunday card — been a couple of tough days in a row, but at least best bets ran decently yesterday so exactas with them were profitable.  Definitely need a turnaround as we get into the second week of the meet.

In race 8, Nobody Move (#2) gets a wicked pace to set up late run on the rail and will be a decent price — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 8 and 7.

In race 7, Indebted (#2) didn’t do much running in last, but got claimed by crafty trainer and has numbers that can win this today — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 4 and 1.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Fast and firm for the 14 race Haskell card — thought I would take a shot handicapping on this big day, so let’s see how I do.

In race 4, Kitten’s Dilemma (#1) goes for very profitable connections and should rally again with a fast pace on tap and run these down late.  Key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 3 and 2.

In race 7, The Grade 2 Monmouth, Kharafa (#3) loves the local sod and can stay close enough to get the jump on the Chad Brown favorite — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 2 and 4. Here’s the entire card and good luck!
