“Giving” My All At Saratoga (9/4/17)

Sep 4th, 2017 | By | Category: Saratoga, Today's Picks

Muddy and yielding for the Spa finale with races 2, 5 and 10 off the turf.  Once again, another day to forget yesterday with only 1 winner on top, so let’s try and go out with a bang and leave Saratoga on a positive note!

In race 9, The Grade 1 Hopeful, Givemeaminit (#7) goes for crafty trainer who had done well here with limited starters — made late move in debut and fast pace assured to set up late run here.  Key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 6 and 2.

In race 7, The Grade 2 Bernard Baruch, Projected (#9) gets blinkers and should sit right behind Heart to Heart (#1) and wear him down late as the second choice — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 1 and 2.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 7 with 8 and 2

Race 2: 6, 14 and 15

Race 3: 6 with 2 and 5

Race 4: 2, 7 and 6

Race 5: 15, 6 and 14

Race 6: 7, 2 and 9

Race 7: 9 (Best Bet) with 1 and 2

Race 8: 7, 6 and 2

Race 9: 7 (Best Bet) with 6 and 2

Race 10: 14, 10 and 2



Being “Mocked” At Saratoga (8/3/17)

Sep 3rd, 2017 | By | Category: Saratoga, Today's Picks

Sloppy and off the turf for the last Sunday card of the meet — too bad with all the scratches, but surprising still a pretty good card to handicap.  3 winners on top yesterday, including the 5-1 winner of the Spinaway, but my best pick was a best bet in race 7 who ran second at 8-1 (exacta was $116).  But, I only went 1 for 5 on best bets and they have been dismal this meet on top — surprisingly, as I have been mentioning all meet, playing all best bets up and down have resulted in a tremendous return, so keep that in mind over the last two days at The Spa.  Let’s see if we can get a best bet home today at a decent price.

In race 7, Mockery (#11) had useful debut and will like more ground and the slop — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 1 and 3.

In race 9, Libby’s Tail (#7) needed last and still ran great off the layoff and will get up in time today — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 8 and 6.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 5, 4 and 1

Race 2: 14, 12 and 11

Race 3: 5, 6 and 3

Race 4: 7, 6 and 2

Race 5: 8, 5 and 7

Race 6: 7, 10 and 12

Race 7: 11 (Best Bet) with 1 and 3

Race 8: 2, 10 and 1A

Race 9: 7 (Best Bet) with 8 and 6

Race 10: 8 (Best Bet) with 3 and 5

Race 11: 1A, 12 and 6

 



Finding A Prime “Suspect” At Saratoga (9/2/17)

Sep 2nd, 2017 | By | Category: Saratoga, Today's Picks

Fast and firm for the last Saturday of the meet — another incredible card highlighted by the Grade 1 Woodward!  Another forgettable performance yesterday with only 1 winner on top and best bets continue to run poorly, feel very good about today so let’s see how I do.

In race 7, Always a Suspect (#4) needed last and still ran on well to just miss — crafty trainer great with second off the layoff and the pace will set up his late run if the track is playing fairly.  Key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 1A and 6.

In race 12, War Flag (#4) should like the added distance and trainer due for a big win here — key in all late multi-race wagers and play an exacta box with #’s 8 and 2.

In race 4, Dancetrack (#7) couldn’t gain ground into slow pace in last and gets a better pace here — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 2 and 5.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 1 with 6 and 9

Race 2: 6, 2 and 9

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

Race 4: 7 (Best Bet) with 2 and 5

Race 5: 3 (Best Bet) with 5 and 8

Race 6: 5, 7 and 1

Race 7: 4 (Best Bet) with 1A and 6

Race 8: 5, 4 and 6

Race 9: 1, 4 and 2

Race 10: 3, 1 and 4

Race 11: 3, 2 and 1

Race 12: 4 (Best Bet) with 8 and 2



Feeling “Ready” At Saratoga (9/1/17)

Sep 1st, 2017 | By | Category: Saratoga, Today's Picks

Fast and firm for the Friday card on closing weekend at The Spa — not doing much picking winners on top over the last 3 cards, but I did list the early pick 5 for a grand and a $90 exacta box with race 7, so maybe there is hope for the next 4 days!

In race 10, Ready for Rye (#2) has been facing some good ones on dirt and has shown real ability in limited turf sprints — should sit a good trip right off the speeds and show class late.  Key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 5 and 6.

In race 6, City Section (#2) should get a perfect ground saving trip and run these down late — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 6 and 9.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 2, 5 and 3

Race 2: 7, 5 and 2

Race 3: 8, 4 and 3

Race 4: 6 (Best Bet) with 2 and 1
