Play of the Day – July 25th 2021

Play of the Day Race Date July 25, 2021 Track Saratoga Race 8 Overview A deep and competitive AOC on the turf, though only one has an abundance of upside and a big potential forward move. Pace It appears on the slow side, so expect a bunched spring late. Trends It’s been a little tricky, as several turf races have been run over a less than firm course, though tactical speed is never a bad thing. Best Bet FORTY UNDER Number 7 Morning Line (10-1) Best Bet Overview #7 FORTY UNDER (10-1) (turf only): Loved that comeback off the long layoff, he should only improve, and if so,…

Play of the Day Race Date July 24, 2021 Track Saratoga Race 7 Overview A deep and competitive AOC on the turf, with several win candidates, as well as up and comers. Pace There doesn’t appear to be much here, though with a field of 12, several of who are lightly raced, something could break out. Trends It’s been a little tricky, as several turf races have been run over a less than firm course, though tactical speed is never a bad thing. Best Bet HOMBRE Number 4 Morning Line (9-2) Best Bet Overview #4 HOMBRE (9-2) (turf only): Loved the MSW last time, where he was close…

Play of the Day – July 23rd 2021

Play of the Day Race Date July 23, 2021 Track Saratoga Race 7 Overview A robust field of 16K N2L’s and a heavy favorite in #10 Air Show (8-5), who hits hard, but doesn’t have to win either. Pace There appears to be plenty here, especially on the outside, which could hurt #10 Air Show (8-5), while potentially flattering #1 FOREST SPIRIT (10-1).

Play of the Day – July 22nd 2021

Play of the Day Race Date July 22, 2021 Track Saratoga Race 9 Overview A F/M N1X that seems there for the taking, with a strong favorite in #3 Ice Princess (8-5), who doesn’t have to win, and a non-descript field that surrounds her. Pace On paper it looks hot and contested, especially for a two-turn dirt route, so the ability to pass horses could be key, even though that goes against the overall track profile. Trends Tactical speed, as per usual, has been extremely important, with very few winners coming from off the pace early in the meet. Best Bet PORTILLA Number 5 Morning Line (6-1) Best…

Play of the Day – July 21st 2021

Play of the Day Race Date July 21, 2021 Track Saratoga Race 9 Overview A very strong AOC, with a potentially vulnerable favorite in #2 Forza Di Oro (9-5), who faces older off a November layoff. Pace It figures to be a bit on the tepid side, so an inside draw and the ability to lay close early will be key. Trends Tactical speed, as per usual, has been extremely important, with very few winners coming from off the pace early in the meet. Best Bet HIGHEST HONORS Number 3 Morning Line (5-2) Best Bet Overview #3 HIGHEST HONORS 5-2): Talented but troubled sort really moved forward in…
