Saying “Uncle” At Saratoga (8/3/18)

Aug 3rd, 2018 | By | Category: Saratoga, Today's Picks

Good and firm for the Friday card — there are storms in the forecast, but only two turf races scheduled, so watch out for changing track conditions and late scratches.  I will handicap for both turf and dirt in races 6 and 9.  Two winners on top yesterday and a couple of exactas, but not much else to discuss, exciting weekend coming up so hope the weather cooperates.

In race 8, Uncle Sigh (#6) has found speed back on main track and should sit a good trip right off a moderate pace and hold off the closers — wet track won’t be an issue.  Key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 4 and 9.

In race 9, The Grade 2 Hall of Fame, Maraud (#2) has won on local turf and loves some give in the sod — call to post minor upset if race stays on grass.  Key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 4 and 6.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 5, 4 and 2

Race 2: 3, 9 and 1

Race 3: 7, 1 and 3

Race 4: 4, 2 and 1

Race 5: 8, 7 and 5

Race 6: 5, 6 and 4  Dirt: 5, 8 and 1

Race 7: 4, 1 and 2

Race 8: 6 (Best Bet) with 4 and 9

Race 9: 2 (Best Bet) with 4 and 6  Dirt: 7, 10 and 5

Race 10: 8, 1 and 9
