Play of the Day
Race Date August 19, 2022
Track Saratoga
Race 3
Overview A compact AOC going long on the main track, with several different winning possibilities.
Pace It’s tough to figure in these dirt routes, as it’s often left up to the jockeys, who seem to wrangle back their speed horses, but on paper, the pace looks honest in here.
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.
Number 1
Morning Line (3-1)
Best Bet Overview #1 GALERIO (3-1): Cash claim (12%) has some solid Laurel form that may get overlooked here, but it’s obvious he was claimed with this spot in mind, by a trainer who knows how to spot his stock.
Picks & Plays Aggressive WP bet and single to end the early Pk5/Pk4.
