It’s The “Olympic” Games At Saratoga (9/2/19)

Sep 2nd, 2019 | By | Category: Saratoga, Today's Picks

Sloppy and yielding for closing day at The Spa with races 1, 3, 5 and 7 off the turf.  It’s been a great meet and I have gone 8 for 24 over the last two days with 4 best bets winning, so I will try and end this with another profitable day!  Complete stats will be posted before the Belmont meet starts, but I can tell you that pick 5′s have been particularly profitable if you played them the whole meet!

In race 9, The Grade 2 Bernard Baruch, Olympico (#7) has done his best on yielding courses and has faced some good ones in 3 starts since coming over from Europe — may be the best price of the Brown entrants and Johnny V and Chad have been a very profitable coupling.  Key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 3 and 1.

In race 8, Hay Field (#7) loves it wet and should benefit from a fast pace and run these down late — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 9 and 1.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 2, 11 and 4

Race 2: 4, 1 and 5

Race 3: 7, 8 and 1

Race 4: 7, 4 and 8

Race 5: 13, 4 and 2

Race 6: 1, 9 and 8

Race 7: 6, 3 and 1A

Race 8: 7 (Best Bet) with 9 and 1

Race 9: 7 (Best Bet) with 3 and 1

Race 10: 4, 3 and 1

Race 11: 11 (Best Bet) with 8 and 7



Extending An “Olive” Branch At Saratoga (9/1/19)

Sep 1st, 2019 | By | Category: Saratoga, Today's Picks

Fast and firm for the final Sunday card of the meet — a fantastic day yesterday with 5 winners on top, including all 3 best bets (2 were 4-1 or better), and had 4 in a row and almost had 5 if my 11-1 shot in race 9 held on, so I will try and keep it up today.

In race 10, Olive Kat (#4) has good tactical speed and may get a perfect stalking trip here cutting back to 6 furlongs — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 7 and 6.

In race 4, I’llhandalthecash (#8) gets cozy outside post and should sit just outside the speed and prevail late — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 7 and 4.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 5, 8 and 9

Race 2: 8, 2 and 1

Race 3: 4 (Best Bet) with 5 and 3

Race 4: 8 (Best Bet) with 7 and 4

Race 5: 10, 3 and 4

Race 6: 1A, 6 and 4

Race 7: 1, 6 and 3

Race 8: 7, 2 and 3

Having Some “Vino” At Saratoga (8/31/19)

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

Fast and firm for the incredible 12-race Woodward card — listed a lot of winners yesterday, including the early pick 5, but no winners on top, so it’s tough to get excited when your second and third choices are run better than the top choice, but time to turn things around today!

In race 11, The Grade 1 Whitney, Vino Rosso (#3) didn’t have the most comfortable trip in the Whitney, but still made a wide move on the turn to put himself in the mix before tiring a little late — worked a bullet for this and have a feeling removal of blinkers will put this one in the winner’s circle today with a good trip — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with 3′s 7 and 9.

In race 6, The Grade 3 Saranac, Global Access (#4) ran best turf race in grade 1 prior to this and should be close enough to a moderate pace to get first run and hold off the closers late — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 5 and 2.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 6, 5 and 4

Race 2: 2, 6 and 7

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

Race 4: 4, 8 and 5

Race 5: 1, 10 and 4

Race 6: 4 (Best Bet) with 2 and 3

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

Race 8: 4, 1 and 3

Race 9: 8, 10 and 11

Race 10: 2, 7 and 5

Race 11: 3 (Best Bet) with 7 and 9

Race 12: 4, 5 and 8



Having “A Little Faith” At Saratoga (8/30/19)

Aug 30th, 2019 | By | Category: Saratoga, Today's Picks

Fast and firm for the final Friday card at the Spa — 2 winners on top, 7 exactas and all the late multi-race wagers all listed (mostly chalk though), so we will try and find some value today.  Keep in mind that the Ortiz brothers are battling for the riding title here over the last few days and you have to factor in that all their horses may be live!  However, you will get value on other horses, so if you can beat them in a race, you should benefit from a better price.

In race 8, A Little Faith (#2) has done little wrong in 2 starts and now gets a cozy inside post for the money run today — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 7 and 9.

In race 10, Final Frontier (#5) should sit right off a fast pace and you will get better value because of Disco Partner (#3), who should be the heavy favorite, but vulnerable again at 5 1/2 furlongs.  Key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 3 and 9.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 8, 5 and 7

Race 2: 2, 4 and 8

Race 3: 2, 4 and 12

Race 4: 5, 3 and 1

Race 5: 5, 4 and 1

Race 6: 9, 4 and 8

Race 7: 4, 3 and 5

Race 8: 2 (Best Bet) with 7 and 9

Race 9: 4, 1 and 2

Race 10: 5 (Best Bet) with 3 and 9

Race 11: 8, 6 and 10
