Play of the Day
Race Date August 20, 2021
Track Saratoga
Race 8
Overview A deep and competitive 50k starter-allowance with several different ways you can go, and one in which prices abound.
Pace It doesn’t look all that fast, so tactical speed is at a premium, especially if the track is wet and playing to inside speed.
Trends The main track has played very kindly to speed going long throughout the meet, and take note of Wednesday (all speed), and especially Thursday and the off-track, as it may well be wet again.
Number 6
Morning Line (10-1)
Best Bet Overview #6 MISTER LUIGI (10-1): Can’t imagine you’ll see anywhere close to this ML out of a G2 drop and with Jose Ortiz named, but this lightly raced runner has some speed to get early position, and the close 4th two-back at GP puts him firmly in the mix here.
Picks & Plays WPS bet at 9-2 or better and a must-use in the late Pk5/Pk4 as well.
