PLAY of the DAY” by Brian Nadeau

Featured Track/Race:   Saratoga – Race 9 
Race overview:  A solid, albeit unspectacular AOC for 3up going 7Fs on the main. 
Pace:  It looks honest and competitive, as more than a few want to be involved early, which means a stalker could have a big say late. 
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:  #8 CANDY TYCOON (4-1): Know this GP invader quite well, and he can run, and now today gets a monumental trainer switch to Jacobson, who immediately cuts him back (where he’ll stalk the pace) and reaches for Irad, which says it’s go time. 
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)
