Play of the Day
Race Date August 13, 2021
Track Saratoga
Race 9
Overview A strong renewal of the Tale of the Cat, with everyone owning a winning chance if they deliver their best.
Pace It should be hot and contested, especially with all the heat on the outside, which suggests something has to give late.
Trends The main track played decidedly to early speed over the weekend, but that was more in the routes, though this play is dependent on pace, and therefore needs the field to stay intact.
Number 3
Morning Line (8-1)
Best Bet Overview #3 BON RAISON (8-1): Cagey veteran won this race in 2019 but has seemingly fallen on hard times since, but dig a bit and you can draw a line through several of his recent runs, the comeback off the December break was a means to an end, and he’ll get a ton of pace to rally into—at a nice price too—for a Sisterson barn that is calling a lot of the right shots at the meet.
Picks & Plays WPS bet, EXBX with #1, and worth using in the late Pk5/Pk4 as well.
