Race Date August 25, 2022
Track Saratoga
Race 7
Overview A typically loaded N!X allowance route going 1 3/16 miles on turf, that could go any number of different ways, with a field that all look eerily similar on paper.
Pace Don’t expect much heat up front, especially in this day and age on the NYRA circuit where everyone takes back, which means this will likely be a bunched sprint off the far turn.
Trends The wider turns on the Mellon will help the stalker/closers, especially since they’ll likely be winding up off the far turn.
Number 7
Morning Line (6-1)
Best Bet Overview #7 THE GREY WIZARD (6-1) (turf only): Laurel invader likely needed his Motion/U.S. debut but ran huge regardless, with plenty of trouble, and you have to think this was the spot in mind all along.
Picks & Plays Aggressive WPS bet and a leverage single in the late Pk5/Pk4 as well, as that will allow for more coverage in the surrounding legs.
