Being Very “Opinionated” At Saratoga (7/31/21)

Jul 31st, 2021 | By | Category: Saratoga, Today's Picks

Fast and good for the stakes packed Saturday card — decent day yesterday with 3 winners on top, including a best bet in the stakes race that made win bets profitable, so let’s try and keep it up today!

In race 7, High Opinion (#7) cuts back flat mile on turf and that should enhance her kick — cut in the ground also benefits her today.  Key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 2 and 6.

In race 8, The Grade 1 Vanderbilt Handicap, Whitmore (#6) is working well for return and cut back to 6 furlongs will help her finish in a race that features a lot of pace — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 2 and 3.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 4, 3 and 2

Race 2: 1, 3 and 12

Race 3: 3, 1 and 2

Race 4: 8, 7 and 2

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

Jul 30th, 2021 | By | Category: Saratoga, Today's Picks

Sloppy and off the turf for the Friday card — I am very sorry that I couldn’t post yesterday due to a family issue, but I am back in the saddle today (forgive the pun), so let’s see how we do.

In race 3, Advance Notice (#13) is the standout main track only entrant here and anything around 7/5 is a gift here with a perfect stalking trip on tap — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 10 and 12.

In race 9, Dynamic One (#7) comes back for Pletcher off two against much tougher and best can win this at 3-1 or so — 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: 7, 8 and 5

Race 2: 4, 5 and 1A

Race 3: 13 (Best Bet) with 12 and 7

Race 4: 5 (Best Bet) with 4 and 6

“Stepping” Forward At Saratoga (7/28/21)

Jul 28th, 2021 | By | Category: Saratoga, Today's Picks

Fast and firm for the Wednesday card and the start of week 3 at the Spa.  So far after 91 races, I am 19/91, but I have listed 64 winners out of the 91 races…an incredible 70% which has led to 3 pick 5′s and 1 pick 6, which have been profitable bets at the meet.  Best Bets are only 4/25, so while I am listing a lot of winners, I need to get some best bets home, so that process starts today!

In race 3, Step Dancer (#6) stretches back out and should benefit from a fast pace and run these down late with a clean trip — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 4 and 8.

In race 4, Alpine Queen (#3) cuts back to sprint, but has the bottom to outfinish these at tricky 7 furlong distance here — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 6 and 1.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 3, 6 and 2

Race 2: 2, 6 and 4

Race 3: 6 (Best Bet) with 4 and 8

Race 4: 3 (Best Bet) with 6 and 1

Race 5: 1, 3 and 8

Race 6: 1, 6 and 3

Race 7: 7, 9 and 6

Race 8: 2 (Best Bet) with 3 and 10

Race 9: 2 with 9 and 4

Race 10: 6, 3 and 12

Jul 25th, 2021 | By | Category: Saratoga, Today's Picks

Sloppy and off the turf for the Sunday card — tough day yesterday with only 1 winner on top and only 4 winners listed, so trying to right the ship before I drown in the deep waters of Saratoga, so let’s see how I do.  Remember to see how the track is playing as it dries out

In race 9, The Grade 3 Shuvee, Royal Flag (#7) ran second in this race last year against the mighty Letruska and should get a decent pace to set up late run at 3-1 or so — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 1 and 4.

In race 8, Locally Owned (#14) race best race here exactly a year ago and off the turf event has enough speed types which should aid his kick — trainer has done well with limited stock.  Key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 6 and 13.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 4, 3 and 6

Race 2: 6 (Best Bet) with 4 and 2

Race 3: 8, 7 and 10

Race 4: 6, 1A and 5

Race 5: 10, 8 and 15
