PLAY of the DAY” by Brian Nadeau                   
Date:  9/4/2023 
Featured Track/Race:   Saratoga – Race 9 
Race overview:  A very meek MSW for 3up sprinting 5 ½ Fs on the Mellon Turf. 
Pace:  There’s doesn’t seem to be an abundance (for a turf sprint), so you will want to be close early, which flatters #3 AMERICAN KNOW HOW (5-2), who can be on or just off the early lead. 
Trends:  They just haven’t run enough on the turf, though the firmer course of late seemingly has been a bit speedy. 
Best Play:  #3 American Know How (5-2) (turf only): Versatile sort has run well in his last two—which both came over the course—and, as important as that, the rest of these just don’t seem like much. 
Bet Types:    Aggressive WP bet and single in the late Pk5/Pk4 as well.  
POD/Meet Stats:  Sar Meet Overall (through 8/27): 344-83-71-56 ($1.71/$5.17) 

Sar POD (through 8/27): 28-5-6-4 ($1.78/$4.86)
