Play of the Day
Race Date August 26, 2022
Track Saratoga
Race 9
Overview A very strong NYB AOC sprinting 7Fs with a strong favorite in #3 Key Point (2-1), though he could be vulnerable as he hasn’t been out since May and rises in class.
Pace For a full field there’s not a ton here, so tactical speed seems at a premium, at the very least.
Trends The main track has been very fair for the majority of the meet, though on such a big weekend it bears watching, as it could be hard and fast—and therefore playing to speed.
Best Bet ANEJO
Number 12
Morning Line (6-1)
Best Bet Overview #12 ANEJO (6-1): Class dropper was 2nd to a likely future stakes winner in an open N1X last time—with trouble to boot—and now, off that tightener, he should be primed for a big move forward.
Picks & Plays Aggressive WP bet, strong Ex over #3 with a smaller backup underneath, and a must-use in the late Pk5/Pk4 as well.
