Play of the Day
Race Date August 14, 2022
Track Saratoga
Race 4
Overview A deep and competitive 50k claimer sprinting on the main with several different ways to go, and a potentially vulnerable favorite in #2 Cost Basis (7-5), who has been off since April and now drops.
Pace It doesn’t look overly heated, so tactical speed (at the very least) should be part of the package.
Trends The main track has continued to play fair throughout the majority meet, and continued to do so last week, though being close is always preferred.
Best Bet EBBEN
Number 6
Morning Line (6-1)
Best Bet Overview #6 EBBEN (6-1): CD invader goes off the claim for Amoss (18%), and while he was a middling 5th last time, that was against better, and he does have races that fit nicely with these.
Picks & Plays Aggressive WP bet and a must-use/potential single in the early Pk5/Pk4 as well.
