Holding “Court” At Saratoga (7/20/18)

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

Fast and firm for opening day at The Spa — I didn’t have the greatest meet here last year in terms of winning percentage (including best bets), but I will be keeping complete statistics on the returns of all kinds of wagers, so we can really see which bets are most profitable.  Last year playing my best bets up and down in exactas was the most profitable with a 30% return!  I will try and handicap every card at the meet, so let’s see how I do today and throughout.  By the way, Ricardo Santana scored with several nice horses early in the meet last year, so keep an eye on him early (especially today) since he seems to be on some live horses at decent prices.  If there is any doubt we are at Saratoga, take a look at the first race where you can make a case for all eight horses!

In race 10, County Court (#8) cuts back and gets a fast pace scenario to set up late run at around 5-2.  Key in all late multi-race wagers and play an exacta box with #’s 12 and 4.

In race 4, Azzedine (#6) has burned a lot of money in 4 starts, but should get a perfect trip here and could be Brown’s first at the meet — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 9 and 4.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 5, 1 and 8

Race 2: 9, 10 and 2

Race 3: 2, 6 and 3

Race 4: 6 (Best Bet) with 9 and 4

Race 5: 1, 4 and 6

Race 6: 8, 4 and 1

Race 7: 3, 12 and 2

Race 8: 7, 10 and 6

Race 9: 3 (Best Bet) with 6 and 7

Race 10: 8 (Best Bet) with 12 and 4

Sloppy and yielding for getaway day at Belmont — had a great last two weeks here after a bad streak, so let’s see if that carries over to Saratoga next week!!!

But for today, in race 5, Banty’s Girl (#9) needed last and should be forwardly placed on the best part of the course and win this at 3-1 or so — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 4 and 2.

In race 2, My Impression (#2) has been beaten by a few of these, but Shug freshened him up and could have an advantage at a mile with some plodders signed on and will be a price — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 3 and 1.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 2, 1 and 3

Race 2: 2 (Best Bet) with 3 and 1

Race 3: 2, 1 and 5

Race 4: 2, 8 and 7

Race 5: 9 (Best Bet) with 4 and 2
