Aug 9th at Saratoga and others


A bunch of little carry overs in pick 4s and pick 5s today that are worth playing. I will start with the late pick 4 at Saratoga because of the usual guarantee of $500,000 that includes a very strong play today for me in the last.

Pick 4 begins in Race#8 Post time: 5:04pm eastern

Saratoga Race#8 Toughest race in the sequence. Do not trust this race. The 4 is a sleeper that has some turn of foot late, had a wide trip last time out. The 2 is the most likely favorite but needs to have the jump to hold the closers late.

Race#9 The 1 has the class and loves to win. The running style will hurt her a little. If can stalk a little will be tough to beat. 2,10 are the next level of contenders with the right running style, my concern is all their second place finishes. Multiple winning horses are the 5,7 with a shot at a huge price.

Race#10 A small but very competitive field. The only toss out is the 4. My slight lean in the race is the 3. Should get a great trip and if close enough will out close everyone in the stretch. The obvious horse is the 1. Wide open race.

Race#11 The 6 is one of my strongest plays on the day. She may look like a losing type horse, but I think she has just been stuck in some very tough races. She flies late, if gets the trip, she wins. The unknown horse is the 7, clearly has the connections but needs to be good to win.

Here is a ticket I am looking at playing:  2,3,4,6,7,8 /1,2,5,7,10/1,2,3,6/6  cost:$60.00
