Play of the Day
Race Date August 22, 2021
Track Saratoga
Race 9
Overview An extremely strong renewal of the Summer Colony, as five of the six entered are stakes winners.
Pace It should be honest, with #2 and #4 ensuring an honest clip, and #6 GOLD SPIRIT (5-2) won’t be too far back.
Trends The main track has played very kindly to speed going long throughout the meet, and you need to be close entering the far turn to have a realistic chance.
Number 6
Morning Line (5-2)
Best Bet Overview #6 GOLD SPIRIT (5-2): Chilean-bred was a group 1 winner in her native country and was a solid enough 4th in the local G3 Shuvee last time, off what was a December layoff, and with this outside attack post off that tightener, and a potential speed duel to her inside, she figures primed here.
Picks & Plays Aggressive WP bet, and single in the late Pk5/Pk4 as well.
