Taking The “Rap” At Saratoga (8/26/17)

Aug 26th, 2017 | By | Category: Saratoga, Today's Picks

Fast and firm for the fantastic Travers Day card — only two winners on top yesterday and no best bets won, so today is the day I have to do my best work.

In race 11, The Grade 1 Travers, Irap (#10) is rapidly developing and can sit close enough to Always Dreaming and get first run on all the closers — will be close to 10-1!  Key in all multi-race wagers, play across the board and play an exacta box with #’s 3 and 6.

In race 8, The Grade 1 H Allen Jerkens, Practical Joke (#1) cuts back to one turn, where he is undefeated and will be flying late — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 9 and 7.

In race 5, Tathqeef (#7) cuts back to a more comfortable distance and has enough tactical speed to stay close enough and finish at at decent price — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 4 and 8.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!
