Play of the Day
Race Date August 27, 2021
Track Saratoga
Race 3
Overview A competitive NYB MSW that looks ripe for a fresh new face to have a big say.
Pace It seems there for the taking on paper, though identifying who will be in front looks tough, though regardless, expect a bunched field and a sprint to the line late.
Trends There’s been a ton of rain of late, so guessing how the turf will play is a dangerous proposition, but with hot weather I should be drying out, so pay close attention to how it handles Thursday.
Number 5
Morning Line (3-1)
Best Bet Overview #5 YARROW (3-1) (turf only): Comebacker was a well-beaten 3rd in her debut in February against open MSW foes at Tampa and has been on the shelf since, but Irad is here, there’s no rivals to fear, and you have to think this is a spot Clement had in mind all along.
Picks & Plays Aggressive WP bet and a must-use/potential single in the early Pk5/Pk4 as well.
