PLAY of the DAY” by Brian Nadeau                   
Date:  8/9/2023 
Featured Track/Race:   Saratoga – Race 9 
Race overview:  A really good Johnstone Mile for NYB f/ms going 1-mile on the main. 
Pace:  It should be honest, as there are more than a few here who want to be involved early, especially with a stretch to a (kind of) two turns. 
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:  #5 BETSY BLUE (3-1): Rice runner got the perfect comeback last time when she was 4th in a fast race (the Dancing Renee), shouldn’t mind the added ground/turn here, and has a stalking style that should play well just off the speed. 
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)
