PLAY of the DAY” by Brian Nadeau                   
Date:  8/6/2023 
Featured Track/Race:   Saratoga – Race 8 
Race overview:  A relatively iffy renewal of the G3 Adirondack for 2yo fillies, who now stretch out to 6 ½ furlongs, where the precociousness wears off a bit, and you really have to earn it. 
Pace:  It should be honest, as there are more than a few here who want to be involved early, especially because they stretch out too. 
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:  #9 COPPER EM (9-2): Upset Ellis debut winner was awesome, with a monster gallop-out too, which suggests the added ground will be right up her alley, and this outside attack post works too. 
Bet Types:    Aggressive WP bet and single in the late 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)
