Nadeau: Saratoga Play of the Day Sat 6.8.24

“PLAY of the DAY” by Brian Nadeau                        Date  6/8/24      Featured track  Saratoga       Race number  11       Race overview  A solid renewal of the G1 Manhattan for 4up, this year run at 1 3/16 miles on the Mell turf course.       Pace  There’s little doubt $4 Strong Quality (15-1) will be loose, with potentially #5 Program Trading (5-2) being closest, but regardless, this figures to turn into a sprint off the far turn, as the former is a definite longshot on many different handicapping levels.      Trends  N/A       Best Play  #9 MEASURED RIDE (7-2): One of two…

Applebee: Closer Look/G1 Acorn and G1 New York SAR Fri 6.7.24

Happy New York Stakes Day!  It’s ladies day at the Spa with four filly and mare Graded Stakes on the card.  I’ll tackle the Acorn and the New York along with an All-Stakes Pick 4.   Much of the turf racing during this festival will come down to a battle between Chad Brown and Charlie Appleby. You need determine what to do with the Appleby runners as a group. Do you think they will fire or will the North American based turf trainers led by Chad Brown hold their ground? Appleby has already had a strong year in the U.S. with five wins in Graded Turf Stakes from sixteen…

Nadeau: Saratoga Play of the Day Fri 6.7.24

“PLAY of the DAY” by Brian Nadeau                        Date  6/7/24      Featured track  Saratoga       Race number  2       Race overview  A very deep and competitive AOC for 3up going 1 ¼ miles on the main track.       Pace  It’s unlikely there will be much pace on going this far, which should temper things early, and turn this into a sprint off the far turn.      Trends  The simple obvious answer is N/A, as this is a stand-alone four-day meet, but the gut says the track will be tight and speedy, and will play to speed, but obviously monitor that as…

  “PLAY of the DAY” by Brian Nadeau                        Date  6/6/24      Featured track  Saratoga       Race number  3       Race overview  A deep and competitive 3up NYB N1X going 7Fs on the main track.       Pace  There appears to be some zip here, and at this tricky 7F trip, things tend to get heated early, which means a stalking gear will play well.      Trends  The simple obvious answer is N/A, as this is a stand-alone four-day meet, but the gut says the track will be tight and speedy, and will play to speed, but obviously monitor that as the…

Nadeau: Churchill Play of the Day Wed 6.5.24

“PLAY of the DAY” by Brian Nadeau                        Date  6/5/24      Featured track  Churchill Downs      Race number  3       Race overview  A modest 30k MCL for 3up going 6Fs on the main track.       Pace  There appears to be enough inside speed to set this up for a stalker, especially since it could catch up the ML favorite, #2 Air Force Cruising (5-2) in the process.      Trends  The main track has been remarkably consistent all meet, with few, if any path biases, and all running styles having a fair go of it more often than not.      Best…

Nadeau: Churchill Play of the Day Sun 6.2.24

“PLAY of the DAY” by Brian Nadeau                        Date  6/2/24      Featured track  Churchill Downs      Race number  5       Race overview  A deep and competitive 30k N2L for 3up going 6Fs on the main track.       Pace  Things looks honest up front, though there are no real burners either, who want to set torrid splits, so this seems like a forward race that will be won close to the pace.      Trends  The main track has been remarkably consistent all meet, with few, if any path biases, and all running styles having a fair go of it more often than…

  “PLAY of the DAY” by Brian Nadeau                        Date  6/1/24      Featured track  Churchill Downs      Race number  4       Race overview  A weak but full field MSW for fms going 1-mile on the main track.       Pace  There’s very little here, especially with 12 of them lining up, so expect things to be tempered early, which means tactical speed is at a premium.      Trends  The main track has been remarkably consistent all meet, with few, if any path biases, and all running styles having a fair go of it more often than not.      Best Play  #3…
