Saying “Uncle” At Saratoga (8/21/17)

Aug 21st, 2017 | By | Category: Saratoga, Today's Picks

Fast and firm for the Monday card — a great day yesterday with 5 winners on top including a 11.80 best bet and a cold $154 pick 3 in the first three races, so let’s see if the trend continues today after a great rebound week!

In race 7, Uncle Sigh (#8) ran his eyeballs out in last after getting checked early and going 7 wide on the turn — not much speed in here so he has to be closer early to run these down at a decent price.  Key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 11 and 7.

In race 5, Ben of the Bridge (#6) will be a big price and ships here for profitable connections — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 3 and 7.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 2: 1, 9 and 5

“Gehrig” Is A Hit At Saratoga (8/20/17)

Aug 20th, 2017 | By | Category: Saratoga, Today's Picks

Fast and firm for the Sunday card — tough day yesterday with a 7-1 best bet just getting beat and only 1 winner on top ($15.80), but today is a great betting card, so let’s see if we can rebound today.

In race 7, Gehrig (#9) moved too late in last sprint here, but there is a brutal pace scenario here and the favorite may be stuck on the rail, so we will go for a mild upset at 3-1 or so — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 1 and 7.

In race 10, Stormin Maclean (#4)  claimed by crafty trainer and cuts back to perfect distance in this turf sprint to run these down late –  key in all late multi-race wagers and play an exacta box with #’s 1 and 7..  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

In race 5, Indoctrination (#5) was beaten by a few of these in last, but closed fast and should get more pace in here and get up late — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 1 and 6.

In race 10, The grade 1 Del Mar Oaks, Beau Recall (#12) ran ok in NY stakes and gets back to Talamo and should prevail if gets a good trip — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 5 and 2.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!
