The “Moon” Is Full At Saratoga (8/18/19)

Aug 18th, 2019 | By | Category: Saratoga, Today's Picks

Muddy and yielding for the Sunday card with only race 4 remaining on the turf — 3 small priced winners on yesterday’s card and my best bet in race 8 just missed second at 13-1.  Hopefully we can find some value with all the races taken off the turf, so let’s see how I do.

In race 4, East Moon (#8) goes for very profitable connections and won’t mind a soft course like some of his competition might — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 3 and 6.

In race 2, Riot Worthy (#2) does her best running at the Spa and can run these down late on a wet rack she likes — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 3 and 6.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 4, 1 and 2

Race 2: 7 (Best Bet) with 3 and 6

Race 3: 5, 7 and 4

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

Race 5: 8, 5 and 2

Race 6: 4, 6 and 8

Race 7: 10, 9 and 3

Race 8: 13, 12 and 10

Race 9: 4 (Best Bet) with 7 and 1

Race 10: 5, 2 and 8



“Ruby” Is A Gem At Saratoga (8/17/19)

Aug 17th, 2019 | By | Category: Saratoga, Today's Picks

Fast and good for the Alabama card at The Spa with races 1 and 3 off the turf.  There may be storms later in the card so pay attention to any last minute track changes, but I am hoping that they get all the remaining turf races in without a problem.  Just back from Aruba so I am very happy to post again — best bets have been profitable for the last few weeks, so let’s see how I do today.

In race 8, Ruby Nation (#9) lit up the board last year on a course less than firm and I am hoping Castellano will sit a great stalking trip and run these down late at another great price.  Key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 8 and 1.

In race 9, The grade 2 Lake Placid, Feel Glorious (#6) is working bullets for this and can prevail late if stays close enough to a moderate pace — 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, 5 and 1

Race 2: 4, 6 and 1

Race 3: 6, 3 and 8

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

Race 5: 3 (Best Bet) with 2 and 7

Race 6: 5 (Best Bet) with 11 and 8

Race 7: 6, 4 and 9

Race 8: 9 (Best Bet) with 8 and 1

Race 9: 6 (Best Bet) with 4 and 5

Race 10: 7, 1 and 6

Race 11: 2, 9 and 5



“Eyeing” A Winner At Saratoga (8/11/19)

Aug 10th, 2019 | By | Category: Saratoga, Today's Picks

Heading to Aruba, but decided to post Sunday’s card before I left  — looks like fast and firm for the card that’s not one of my favorites, so let’s see how we do when we are on vacation!

In race 9, Eyeinthesky (#10) ran great in local try and Rosario is the best turf rider in the country when it comes to getting horses to settle and finish — enough speed to run them down late.  Key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 4 and 5.

In race 5, Saratoga Treasure (#2) is rounding into form for profitable connections and has won locally on this course — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 3 and 6.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 3, 6 and 4

Race 2: 2, 1 and 9

Race 3: 2, 7 and 8

Race 4: 8 (Best Bet) with 1 and 9

Race 5: 2 (Best Bet) with 3 and 6

Race 6: 6, 8 and 3

Race 7: 6, 2 and 8

Race 8: 3, 1 and 2

Race 9: 10 (Best Bet) with 4 and 5

Race 10: 7, 4 and 10



“Noose” Chokes The Competition At Saratoga (8/10/19)

Aug 10th, 2019 | By | Category: Saratoga, Today's Picks

Fast and firm for the great 11-race Saturday card — another good day yesterday with 3 winners on top including my 8-1 best bet in race 9 which was a total overlay!  Having a good run over the last few weeks, but a tough one today, so let’s see how I do.   Remember, I am heading to Aruba next week so I will not be posting from Wednesday to Friday, so you are on your own!

In race 8, The Grade 2 Saratoga Special, Noose (#1) has shown a rating gear in debut and exploded home late — gets a very fast pace scenario to set up late run.  Key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 3 and 7.

In race 9, The grade 1 Fourstardave, Raging Bull (#4) has faced the best turf horses in the country and now cuts back to a flat mile here which should enhance his late kick — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 2 and 1.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 7, 5 and 6

Race 2: 7, 6 and 9

Race 3: 8, 7 and 1

Race 4: 1, 8 and 5

Race 5: 5, 7 and 3

Race 6: 5, 4 and 7

Race 7: 8, 7 and 1
