“Tapping” Into A Winner At Saratoga (8/24/18)

Aug 24th, 2018 | By | Category: Saratoga, Today's Picks

Fast and firm for the fantastic day before Travers card — two winners on top yesterday and just missed the late pick 5, but haven’t really had the kind of day that’s been a “home run” since the meet began, so let’s see how we do today!

In race 10, The West Point, Tapitation (#4) goes for overdue crafty trainer –  has been beaten by some of these previously, but will get a wicked pace here and should be in mid pack and get the first run on Offering Plan (#6) who will be a heavy favorite.  I will take 6-1 and hope for a clean trip to post a minor upset here –  key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 11 and 6.

In race 5, La Fuerza (#7) should get a rapid pace to set up late run as the second choice — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 4 and 5.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 8, 3 and 1

Race 2: 6 with 2 and 4

Race 3: 6 with 7 and 1

Race 4: 4, 10 and 7
