PLAY of the DAY” by Brian Nadeau                   
Date:  8/12/2023 
Featured Track/Race:   Saratoga – Race 10 
Race overview:  A wildly deep and competitive 50k starter-allowance for 3up going 1-mile on the main. 
Pace:  It looks hot and contested, as there are more than a few who want to be involved early and often, which means a stalking gear will come in handy. 
Trends:  The main track has been on the fair side all meet, though as a general rule, you want to have tactical speed sprinting, as races rarely fall apart in the lane. 
Best Play:  #1 GUT FEELING (5-1): Dutrow newcomer gets a huge trainer switch and has been freshened for this too, which means he’s been with his new barn for a bit, and the fact Saez is named says there’re intent here, and this post, and his 9F speed says he’ll trip out too. 
Bet Types:    Aggressive WP bet and single in the late Pk5/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)
