Date:  8/23/2023 
Featured Track/Race:   Saratoga – Race 6 
Race overview:  A modest NYB MSW for 2yos sprinting 7Fs on the main. 
Pace:  It should be honest enough, as there are a few firsters, while the majority of the experienced runners are stretching out. 
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:  #8 B D SAINTS (7-2): Turf router had the worst trip of the year in his last, when he was a likely winner if he was able to run at any point in the race (he never got out of 3rd gear the entire way), now goes to Rice, who is having a banner meet, and she immediately adds blinkers, cuts him back, and runs him on the main. 
Bet Types:    Aggressive WP bet and single to end the early Pk5/Pk4, in the middle Pk4, and to kick off 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)
