Race Date August 31, 2022
Track Saratoga
Race 7
Overview A solid 32k claimer going 5 ½ Fs on the turf, with several who are dropping in class, though where their form is at remains to be seen.
Pace You should get some inside speed from #2 Ballydooley (6-1), who is the only one here that could potentially keep #7 NOT PHAR NOW (7-2) occupied early.
Trends We’re turf sprinting here, so you want to be close, as coming from too far back is never a great recipe for success.
Number 7
Morning Line (7-2)
Best Bet Overview #7 NOT PHAR NOW (7-2) (turf only): Speedster cuts back from a good 3rd routing last time and draws perfectly, so he’s either a Lone F, or, if #2 Ballydooley (6-1) does go early, he’ll be able to sit to his outside and get first run on the stalker/closers.
Picks & Plays Aggressive WP bet and single in the late Pk5/Pk4 as well.
