Going On “Leave” At Saratoga (8/4/18)

Aug 4th, 2018 | By | Category: Saratoga, Today's Picks

Good and good for the Saturday card, but overnight rains have created havoc with the card — only race 5 is on the turf and races 10 and 11 have been cancelled and rescheduled for later in the meet.  Had 3 winners on top yesterday which means I am hitting at 24% for the meet with a small flat bet deficit, but my best bets have not been winning and multi-race wagers have been stymied by one race in the middle where the winner is not listed, so play accordingly until further notice.

In race 5, On Leave (#7) has faced some good ones lately and could be third choice against Brown’s two entrants — no excuses today.  Key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 1 and 5.

In race 6, Illudere (#8) ran great in debut with a taxing trip and should give Jimmy Jerkins a winner here — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 1 and 2.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 2, 11 and 1

Race 2: 7, 12 and 10

Race 3: 5, 6 and 3

Race 4: 1A, 9 and 5

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

Race 6: 8 (Best Bet) with 3 and 5

Race 7: 3, 1 and 2

Race 8: 7 (Best Bet) with 6 and 3

Race 9: 1, 7 and 6
