Playing Great “D” At Saratoga (8/5/17)

Aug 5th, 2017 | By | Category: Saratoga, Today's Picks

Fast and firm for Whitney Day at Saratoga — looks like they dodged a bullet with the weather and it’s a great 11 race card on tap.  Had 3 winners on top yesterday and a flat bet profit, but best bets only went 1 for 4, so ld’et’s see if they come back to life today!

In race 1, D’Eloquent (#11) benefits greatly from the scratch of #10 and now should be on or just off a moderate pace in this turf sprint and get first jump on the closers at a decent price — key in all early multi-race wagers and play an exacta box with #’s 3 and 5.

In race 8, The Grade 1 Test, Faypien (#8) ships in for Baffert and should sit just off a contested pace and run these down late — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 2 and 3.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 11 (Best Bet) with 3 and 5

Race 2: 3, 2 and 5

Race 3: 1, 4 and 7

Race 4: 10, 6 and 3

Race 5: 7 (Best Bet) with 5 and 1

Race 6: 10 with 2 and 9

Race 7: 1 (Best Bet) with 7 and 12

Race 9: 5, 1 and 6

Race 10: 7 with 1 and 9

Race 11: 8 (Best Bet) with 7 and 6
