Setting The “Table” At Saratoga (7/23/17)

Jul 23rd, 2017 | By | Category: Saratoga, Today's Picks

Fast and firm for the Sunday card and it looks like the rain will hold off and just affect Monday’s card — decent showing after two days with 4 winners on top out of 21, but best bets are now profitable after getting 7-1 on Penjade yesterday, plus listing lots of doubles and pick 3′s, so let’s see how I do today!

In race 8, Table of Six (#1) is not a win machine, but loves the local course and gets cozy post and has the numbers to break through here at a decent price — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 8 and 12.

In race 11, Chapin (#1) has speed to overcome outside post and goes for crafy turf outfit — key in all multi-race wagers and play an exacta box with #’s 6 and 10.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 5, 3 and 11

Race 2: 7, 4 and 2

Race 3: 3 with 5 and 2

Race 4: 10, 9 and 3

Race 5: 7, 8 and 2

Race 9: 11, 9 and 3

Race 10: 7, 5 and 2

Jul 22nd, 2017 | By | Category: Saratoga, Today's Picks

Fast and firm for the Saturday card — had a great start yesterday with 2 winners in the first 3 races, but the later races were tough and although two best bets ran second, the later races were not good, so I will try and bounce back today!

They’re…….off at Saratoga!  Fast and firm for opening day of the meet and if today is an indication of how tough handicapping will be here, we are destined for a loooong Summer!  Had a decent Belmont meet, but my best bets, which were so profitable for weeks cooled down considerably over the last few days, so let’s see what happens today and early at the meet.

Race 2: 3, 6 and 1

Need A “Bear” Hug At Saratoga (9/5/16)

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!

Race 1: 1 and 5

Race 2: 5 (Best Bet) with 6 and 4

Race 3: 2, 7 and 3

Race 4: 5, 2 and 4

Race 5: 11, 4 and 6
