Featured Track/Race:   Saratoga – Race 8 
Race overview:  A strong 50k claimer for 3yos sprinting 7Fs on the main, with several who drop from saltier spots. 
Pace:  There’s plenty here, and at a demanding 7Fs, there’s a chance the front runners get weary in the lane, so having some tactical speed should be viewed as a big advantage. 
Trends:  The main track has been fair, though as a general rule, it will always tilt towards front runners, or those with tactical speed. 
Best Play:  #5 DANGEROUS RIDE (9-2): Class dropper goes for a David barn that has already has two wins at the meet, from just four starters, and gets to put Lasix back on, while having a running style that should allow him first run off all the speed. 
Bet Types:    Aggressive WP bet and single in the late Pk5, and to kick off the late Pk4 as well. 
POD/Meet Stats:  Sar POD: 7-3-1-1 ($3.72/$7.31) 

Sar Meet Overall: 91-23-15-20 ($1.57/$4.74)
