Date:  8/11/2023 
Featured Track/Race:   Saratoga – Race 10 
Race overview:  A full field of 35k N2L f/ms going 5 ½ Fs on the Mellon turf. 
Pace:  It’s a turf sprint, so there should be plenty of pace here, especially towards the inside. 
Trends:  There’s nothing to lean on with the turf, as it’s had plenty of give to it throughout the meet, and they were OFF Weds/Thurs, though it has been noticeable that the inside paths seem to be preferred.  
Best Play:  #5 MICHELLE M. (7-2) (turf only): Stiff class dropper got Rosario’d two-back when she got a brutal ride/trip while facing tons better at Belmont and didn’t see out the two turns last time, and needs only clear sailing to beat this group. 
Bet Types:    Aggressive WP bet and single in the late Pk5, and to kick off the Pk4 as well. 
POD/Meet Stats:  Sar POD: 17-3-4-1 ($1.54 /$4.24) 

Sar Meet Overall: 191-43-40-32 ($1.68/$5.07)
