PLAY of the DAY” by Brian Nadeau

Featured Track/Race:   Saratoga – Race 4 
Race overview:  A very modest 40k N2L for 3up going 6 ½ Fs on the main.  
Pace:  There’s not much here, as 3 Camm’ Duke (10-1) should be controlling early, which puts #5 WESTERN GHENT (6-1) in a good spot, as he seems like the only one with the tactical speed to keep him close early and get first run. 
Trends:  The main continues to play fair, though speed should always be preferred, especially sprinting. 
Best Play:  #5 WESTERN GHENT (6-1): Class dropper also cuts back and the former has been a move Lukas has done well with here in the past, and this post, along with the tactical speed this 3yo has shown in the past, gives him a big edge on this field of closers. 
Bet Types:    Aggressive WP bet and single in the early Pk5/Pk4, and to kick off the middle Pk4 as well. 
POD/Meet Stats:  Sar Meet Overall (through 8/13: 241-55-49-40 ($1.65/$4.98) 

Sar POD (through 8/13): 20-3-4-2 ($1.31 /$3.72)
