PLAY of the DAY” by Brian Nadeau                   
Date:  8/27/2023 
Featured Track/Race:   Saratoga – Race 7 
Race overview:  A solid renewal of the Seeking the Ante, for NYB 2yofs going 6 furlongs on the main. 
Pace:  It should be honest enough, as more than a few have shown some early foot in their brief careers. 
Trends:  The main, which has gotten plenty of use during the meet, continues to play fair, though early speed is always be preferred. 
Best Play:  #6 Stellamaris (5-2): Steam horse was actually favored in her debut—in an OPEN MSW—and she ran to it too, getting beat just a half-length, which was very likely a prep for this spot, and the fact she’s a maiden might get us a better price than we should. 
Bet Types:    Aggressive WP bet and single in the middle Pk4, and to kick of the late Pk5 as well. 
POD/Meet Stats:  Sar Meet Overall (through 8/20): 291-66-59-48 ($1.73/$5.10) 

Sar POD (through 8/20): 23-4-5-3 ($1.84/$4.81)
