Sep 5th, 2016 | By | Category: Saratoga, Today's Picks

Fast and firm for closing day at The Spa — over the last 6 weeks, I have been bruised, battered, revered, idolized, mocked, uplifted. challenged, vindicated, dumbfounded and amazed at different times, but through it all I have maintained my dignity and enjoyed every minute of this treasured piece of Americana, so let’s go out in a blaze of glory today.  Had a great first half yesterday, listing the early pick 4 and pick 5 that paid close to $7,000, but my best bets ran poorly again and the second half of the card was a bust — just another day at Saratoga.

In race 6, Starr Bear (#4) goes dirt to turf in second start for crafty connections — all the numbers say this one is ready to go today.  Key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 6 and 9.

In race 2, Moondance (#5) goes for great first time trainer and has been working well for debut — looks good at 3-1.  Key in all doubles in pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 6 and 4.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!
