PLAY of the DAY” by Brian Nadeau                   
Date:  8/4/2023 
Featured Track/Race:   Saratoga – Race 3 
Race overview:  A solid field of 10k claimers sprinting 6Fs on the main. 
Pace:  It looks hot and contested, as more than a few want to go early, with just as many wanting to keep them honest. 
Trends:  The main track has been on the fair side all meet, tough as a general rule, you want to have tactical speed sprinting, as races rarely fall apart in the lane. 
Best Play:  #7 TURNSANDCONDITIONS (6-1): Stiff class dropper has been facing tons better in the 50k starter ranks and just endured a rough beginning that cost him all chance, but his dirt races are as good as anyone here (if not better), and with a clean break he should trip out beautifully off all the speed. 
Bet Types:    Aggressive WP bet and single in the early Pk5/Pk4 as well. 
POD/Meet Stats:  Sar POD: 12-3-3-1 ($2.18/$5.70) 

Sar Meet Overall: 143-31-28-32 ($1.54/$4.93)
