Controlling My “Temper” At Saratoga (8/11/17)

Aug 11th, 2017 | By | Category: Saratoga, Today's Picks

Fast and firm for the Friday card — had 3 short priced winners on top yesterday, including two cold triples, but my best bets ran poorly so not much to get excited about.  Difficult card to navigate today, so let’s see how I do.

In race 5, Bridaled Temper (#2) is a well bred first timer for a barn that is usually great with debuting 2-year olds on turf, but they have not had a good meet.  Have a feeling that this one will be live with Castellano and Casse had several of these types win at the meet last year, so watch the board.  Key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 8 and 4.

In race 2, More Than a Legend (#1) gets cozy inside post and should be used a little more from here on a course that has been favoring inside speed — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 7 and 10.  Here’s the entire card without scratches so check back late for any last minute changes and good luck!

Race 1: 4 and 5

Race 2: 1 (Best Bet) with 7 and 10
