Trying To Be “Smart” At Saratoga (8/7/17)

Aug 7th, 2017 | By | Category: Saratoga, Today's Picks

Fast and firm for the Monday card — the search for winners on top continues with only one winner yesterday, but I listed two nice pick 3′s (races 5-7 & 9-11) and if you watch the replay of race 11, my top pick would have won by 5 lengths if not for almost being knocked over on the far turn!  Time to turn the page and get back on track for the rest of the meet.

In race 9, Smart and Sassy (#5) ran well in turf debut for a trainer doing well at the meet and has good positional speed to work out a good trip — key in all late multi-race wagers and play an exacta box with #’s 8 and 9.

In race 7, Nonna Mela (#5) ran great locally last year and comes back for top connections and may run these down late as the second choice — 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!

Race 1: 3, 7 and 2

Race 2: 7, 9 and 4

Race 3: 3, 1 and 5

Race 4: 1, 9 and 8

Race 5: 7, 1A and 2

Race 6: 6, 7 and 10

Race 7: 5 (Best Bet) with 4 and 1

Race 8: 5, 6 and 8

Race 9: 5 (Best Bet) with 8 and 9
