Feeling Some “Joy” At Saratoga (8/31/17)

Aug 31st, 2017 | By | Category: Saratoga, Today's Picks

Fast and firm for the Thursday card — trying to forget a horrible day yesterday where you could have thrown darts on a dart board and made better picks than I made yesterday.  Anyway, maybe it’s as easy as picking Pletcher and Brown in every race because they are trying to win the riding title and putting live horses in positions to win, and that’s very apparent today,  so let’s see if we can turn it around!

In race 4, Moondance Joy (#3) will be a big price for low profile connections, but will get a wicked pace and close late if the track is playing fair — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 1 and 6.

In race 6, Banana Thief (#11) should sit a perfect stalking trip behind moderate fractions and hold off the closers late — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 8 and 9.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 4, 1 and 5

Race 2: 3, 7 and 8

Race 3: 3, 1 and 4

Race 4: 3 (Best Bet) with 1 and 6

Race 5: 7, 6 and 1

Race 6: 11 (Best Bet) with 8 and 9

Race 7: 9 with 8 and 1

Race 8: 9 (Best Bet) with 6 and 8

Race 9: 6, 7 and 3

Race 10: 6 with 14 and 5
