“Good Things Take Time” At Saratoga (8/23/18)

Aug 23rd, 2018 | By | Category: Saratoga, Today's Picks

Fast and firm for the Thursday card — not picking many winners on top lately, but listing a lot and listed 5 exactas and 3 triple boxes yesterday, so let’s see how I do today.

In race 9, Goodthingstaketime (#9) has faced better and should sit a comfortable trip right off the lead and prevail late — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 4 and 5.

In race 10, Identify Politics (#5) goes for the hottest turf trainer in the country and should win this as the favorite — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 8 and 4.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 9, 4 and 3

Race 2: 5, 1 and 3

Race 3: 6, 1 and 2

Race 4: 1, 2 and 3

Race 5: 7, 3 and 1

Race 6: 5, 6 and 8

Race 7: 6, 1A and 7

Race 8: 4, 8 and 6

Race 9: 9 (Best Bet) with 4 and 5

Race 10: 5 (Best Bet) with 8 and 4



Firing A “Rocket” At Saratoga (8/22/18)

Aug 22nd, 2018 | By | Category: Saratoga, Today's Picks

Good and good for the Monday card with races 3, 4 and 6 off the turf — not a good day on Sunday so let’s just move on to Travers week and try to step it up!

In race 9, Rocketry (#7) can run all day and will be a much better price than some other in here who beat him in last and a good turf could do the trick here — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 5 and 10.

In race 8, Broken Border (#1) gets cozy post and a fast pace to set up late run as the favorite for Servis who is on fire again — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 5 and 4.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 4, 6 and 5

Race 2: 3, 6 and 5

Race 3: 10, 5 and 2

Race 4: 9, 1A and 7

Race 5: 6, 1A and 4

Race 6: 1, 2 and 6

Race 7: 8 (Best Bet) with 1 and 6

Race 8: 1 (Best Bet) with 5 and 4

Race 9: 9 (Best Bet) with 5 and 10

Race 10: 8, 2 and 4



Breaking The “Code” At Saratoga (8/20/18)

Aug 20th, 2018 | By | Category: Saratoga, Today's Picks

Fast and good for the Monday card — got another best bet home yesterday at $13.40, other top choices ran second 3 times and my second choices won three times, so a bit frustrating overall.  But if you played best bets over the weekend, you tripled your money, so maybe things are going in the right direction with the Travers coming up!  Tough card today, but time to step it up!

In race 6, Little Code (#6) ships in for low profile barn, but lures Javier and should like the pace and some give in the ground — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 10 and 1.

In race 1, Canadian Flyer (#6) could barely stand up in off the turf return race, but got some needed work in and should romp here back on the green — key in all early multi-race wagers and play an exacta box with #’s 1A and 5.  Here’s the entire card and good luck (especially to my friends Lois and Kate who have horses running today!)

Race 1: 6 (Best Bet) with 1A and 5

Race 2: 1, 10 and 11

Race 3: 3, 5 and 2

Race 4: 6, 5 and 4

Race 5: 8, 7 and 5

Race 6: 6 (Best Bet) with 10 and 1

Race 7: 10 (Best Bet) with 5 and 9

Race 8: 1, 7 and 3

Race 9: 10, 2 and 6



“We Should Talk” About Saratoga (8/19/18)

Aug 19th, 2018 | By | Category: Saratoga, Today's Picks

Fast and good for the Sunday card and all races remain on the turf.  There’s a stretch of good weather on the horizon and now the expectations should be high for the cards leading up and through The Travers, so let’s get to it.  By the way, we got a $20 best bet home in The Alabama yesterday — something to build on!

In race 6, We Should Talk (#7) goes first time turf for crafty turf sprint trainer and has run well fresh and faced some good ones last year — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 4 and 2.

In race 10 Generalist (#3) should sit a perfect trip right off the speed and win right back — key in all late multi-race wagers and play an exacta box with #’s 8 and 6.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 2, 1 and 7

Race 2: 4, 7 and 3

Race 3: 9, 6 and 8

Race 4: 5, 1 and 4
