Play of the Day
Race Date July 30, 2021
Track Saratoga
Race 8
Overview A very deep and competitive turf N1X, with several who have plenty of upside and should offer value, none more so than #2 GALAWI (IRE) (5-1).
Pace It doesn’t look overly heated, but these turf marathons aren’t really dependent on pace anymore, as they typically turn into a sprint off the far turn regardless.
Trends Check the weather, as rains were expected Thursday afternoon, which could put plenty of moisture in the course.
Number 2
Morning Line (5-1)
Best Bet Overview #2 GALAWI (IRE) (5-1) (turf only): Lightly raced 4yo has a world of upside as a son of the mare Galikova (FR), a G1 winner who is a half-sister to the immortal miler Goldikova (Ire), but the former did her best running going much longer, which suggests this trip is well within the wheelhouse of this colt, and note he was just getting going late in his MSW win at 1 ¼ miles last time, in what was his US debut and first for Motion, off a 13-month layoff as well.
Picks & Plays Strong WPS bet and a bold single in the late Pk5/Pk4 as well.
