PLAY of the DAY” by Brian Nadeau

Featured Track/Race:   Saratoga – Race 5 
Race overview:  A solid field of NYB N1X runners going 6Fs on the main track. 
Pace:  It looks honest, as there are more than a few here that want to be close early, though there’s also no true burners either. 
Trends:  It’s early in the meet, so there’s nothing current to gleam, though as a general rule of thumb, being close early on the main track is always a positive. 
Best Play:  #8 MARIACHI (5-2): Lightly raced colt ran huge in his comeback and first start of the year at Belmont and you have to think this was the main goal all along, so he should be even tighter here. 
Bet Types:    Aggressive WP bet and single to end the early Pk5/Pk4, and to kick off the middle Pk4 as well. 
POD/Meet Stats:  Sar POD:
