Play of the Day
Race Date July 31, 2021
Track Saratoga
Race 5
Overview A solid NYB N1X with a newcomer that may be poised to take advantage of the locals.
Pace It looks honest enough, as several want to be involved early, which could set this up for a stalker from midpack.
Trends It’s tough to get a feel for the main track, with so much rain causing an off-surface both Thursday and Friday, so take note of how it plays as it begins to dry out towards the weekend.
Number 4
Morning Line (7-2)
Best Bet Overview #4 BEHIND THE COUCH (7-2): Open runner invades and dips into the NYB ranks, has run big in her last two starts on a fast main track, and should get an honest pace to run into as well.
Picks & Plays Aggressive WP bet and single to end the early Pk5/Pk4, along with the middle Pk5 as well.
