Featured Track/Race:   Saratoga – Race 4 
Race overview:  A competitive field of 14k N3L’s sprinting 6Fs on the main. 
Pace:  It looks honest, as there are more than a few who want to be involved early, though none of them a pure burners either, so it doesn’t have the feel of a race that will fall apart late. 
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:  #6 ENSIGN PARKER (5-1): Well-drawn runner tried to wire last time and held well, while well clear of the rest, and he looks primed in what is the third start of his form cycle. 
Bet Types:    Aggressive WP bet and single in the early Pk5/Pk4, and to kick off the middle Pk4 as well.
