Feeling “Jaded” At Saratoga (7/31/19)

Jul 31st, 2019 | By | Category: Saratoga, Today's Picks

Drying out track conditions for the Wednesday card at the Spa — posting early because I am on my way to the track for my annual Lake George getaway, so I will be here until Saturday if anyone is interested in meeting up.  Had a great weekend last week and I hope to carry that over this week — not sure if races will remain on the turf after overnight rain, but the forecast today is much better, so hopefully there won’t be many races switched to dirt and scratches will be limited, so let’s see how I do today.

In race 8, Jaded Lady (#11) gets blinkers today for a turf sprint without much speed — should be just off the pace here and can upset here with Saez at a decent price.  Key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 10 and 7.

In race 7, Altea (#8) goes second off the layoff for top turf trainer and should move forward today — could be second choice against other Brown runner.  Key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 4 and 2.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 2, 3 and 5   Dirt: 9, 5 and 6

Race 2: 2, 3 and 5

Race 3: 8, 3 and 1

Race 4: 6, 7 and 5   Dirt: 6, 8 and 5

Race 5: 9, 8 and 7   Dirt: 4, 15 and 3

Race 6: 4, 2 and 7

Race 7: 8 (Best Bet) with 4 and 2   Dirt: 4, 6 and 1

Race 8: 11 (Best Bet) with 10 and 7   Dirt: 15, 16 and 7

Race 9: 2 (Best Bet) with 6 and 1

Race 10: 9, 8 and 4   Dirt: 10, 4 and 7

 

 



Ride Em “Cowboy” At Saratoga (7/28/19)

Jul 28th, 2019 | By | Category: Saratoga, Today's Picks

Fast and firm for the Sunday card — a great day yesterday with 4 winners on top including Tax in the big race and a nice $500 pick 3 in the middle of the card, so let’s see how I do today.

In race 6, Cowboy Rhythm (#2) gets back to two turns for a trainer who knows how to win races up here and Saez is riding great — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 6 and 3.

In race 11, The Grade 2 Amsterdam, Wendell Fong (#7) may have been a little too close to a blistering pace in last and was on the worst part of the track — call to post minor upset from a little more off the pace here.  Key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 6 and 5.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

“Delivering” A Winner At Saratoga (7/27/19)

Jul 27th, 2019 | By | Category: Saratoga, Today's Picks

Fast and good for the Jim Dandy card — another challenging day for any handicapper to navigate!  Only 1 winner on top yesterday and all best bets lost, but exacta boxes were profitable so at least something positive to report.  Let’s see how I do today.

In race 8, Overdeliver (#9) cuts back to sprint and should benefit from a scorching pace up front and run down the leaders late for Pletcher/Johnny V. who are do to get rolling.  Key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 7 and 4.

In race 10, The Grade 2 Bowling Green, Arklow (#1) gets cozy inside post and has enough speed to sit a perfect stalking trip and prevail late at a decent price — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 2 and 5.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!
