PLAY of the DAY” by Brian Nadeau

Featured Track/Race:   Saratoga – Race 8 
Race overview:  A deep and competitive full field of 32k claimers routing 1-mile on the inner turf. 
Pace:  It looks honest enough, especially since there are more than a few inside who want to be involved early and often. 
Trends:  Tactical speed will always play on the turf, as it’s often tough to make up significant ground. 
Best Play:  $4 TASS (9-2) turf only): Stalker was the only one to make up any significant ground last time at Belmont, should get a much better race flow today, and figures primed second-off the long layoff. 
Bet Types:    Aggressive WP bet and single in the late Pk5/Pk4 as well.
