PLAY of the DAY” by Brian Nadeau

Featured Track/Race:   Saratoga – Race 7 
Race overview:  A graded stakes caliber AOC for 3up sprinting 5 ½ Fs on the turf. 
Pace:  For a full field of turf sprinters, especially this kind, there’s not an abundance of early speed, which means you should be close early. 
Trends:  The turf has been a mixture of firm, giving, and OFF, so it’s tough to discern anything, though when it’s on the firm side, you need to be close early on, as making up significant ground isn’t easy. 
Best Play:  #9 OUTLAW KID (4-1) (turf only): Pace presser was awesome in his comeback win then likely paid the price when rising to a G2 over a demanding Woodbine turf, but he’s back with friends here, from a perfect outside attack post, and should be primed. 
Bet Types:    Aggressive WP bet and single in the late Pk5, and to kick off the Pk4 as well. 
POD/Meet Stats:  Sar POD: 7-3-1-1 ($3.72/$7.31) 

Sar Meet Overall: 91-23-15-20 ($1.57/$4.74)
