Saratoga Thoroughbred

I Play Exacta Boxes

In races with 3 selections the total cost will be $6 for a $1 bet
In races with 4 selections the total cost will be $12 for a $1 bet

The Win Candidates are in order from our top pick to our fourth (or third).

However, we root for the two biggest prices to run 1st and 2nd as it helps our payoffs in our exacta boxes.

It does not matter to me if it is our top pick or our fourth- I am trying to make money!

If you have any questions just let me know,

  • 6 6 ML 3-1 Olympic Dreams T. McCarthy 118 Lbs C. Clement $25,000 L

Selections 1-2-3 Rating ⭐⭐

#1 Sensibleconclusio-This colt is 7-5 on the program not because he is some monster runner but because he drops in class from 40k to 25k and has caught a miserable field.

#6 Olympic Dreams-only missed by 40 lengths in his debut last out lol. He drops from MSW to MCL for Clement who is hitting at 29% with his runners making this move and is hitting at 22% with his maidens in their second start. He adds blinkers and has the one to beat.

#2 Lucky Mucho Man-has finished third in three of his last four including back to back at this same level and looks for another in the money finish today.

#3 Uncle Water Flow-rallied to finish third last out after a rough start. He finds similar and should be in the payoffs.

Selections 4-6-3 Rating ⭐⭐

#4 Caragate-is coming off a four length romp over this track last out against tougher. She should be close from the start and looks good for the repeat.

#6 Bustin Bay-has been running well against open company and drops in with softer New York breds today. She gets I.Ortiz in the irons and that always helps.

#3 Epona’s Dream-is coming off her best race to date while finishing second against similar at Belmont. She shows three works over the track here and will come running late.

Selections 6-4-1 Rating ⭐⭐

#6 Jill’s a Hot Mess-stalked the pace, gained command late but got nailed and finished second beaten just ¾ of a length over this course last out. She has two wins from three starts here with a second and should get the money.

#4 Get the Candy-fast filly from the Maker barn made the lead last out but had to settle for third beaten just 2 ¼ lengths. She looks like the speed again today and will be the one to catch.

#1 The Entry-#1 Shesawildjoker-came off a 6 month layoff last out and showed brief speed before tiring. He needed that one, shows a good work here since and should improve. #1A Sassy Melissa-Has a win and a second from her three starts here and finished just 3 ½ lengths behind our top pick last out.

Selections 3-2-7 Rating ⭐⭐⭐

#3 Charles Chrome- trainer David Jacobson who was the leading trainer in New York from 2012-2014 is making a comeback after being out of the sport for 4 years. He drops this gelding in class, puts I.Ortiz in the irons, adds blinkers and looks to start his comeback with a win.

#2 Veterans Beach-missed by just a length last out over this course and is the one to beat.

#7 Immortalization-fought for the lead last out in his first start over this course before a 4th place finish. He drops in class and will show his speed again today.

Selections 4-2-3 Rating ⭐⭐

#4 Winit-410k colt came off a 6 month layoff two back and finished third beaten just 5 lengths in a key MSW race at Belmont in which the winner Artorius came right back and drew off to win the Curlin stake in a huge effort. This colt then went wire to wire to win by 3 last out. He has the speed to make the lead again today and despite taking on winners for the first time should prove tough.

#2 Complete Agenda-came off a two month layoff last out and missed by only 3 over this track at this same distance and level. Pletcher is hitting at 26% with his runners in their second start back and this one will come running late.

#3 Nabokov-went wire to wire in his second career start then was eased in a grade 3 at Belmont that was won by Charge It by 23 lengths. He shows 5 solid works over the track here since, gets I.Ortiz and should be in the money.

  • 8 8 ML 20-1 Eros's Girl K. Navarro 123 Lbs M. Ferraro

Selections 2-6-4-3 Rating ⭐⭐

#2 Robyn and Eli-finished second in three straight to begin her career missing by half a length twice and then a neck while coming off a 6 month. She then threw in a clunker last out and finished 9th as the beaten favorite in her first start over this course. She shows two good works since and I am betting 30% winning trainer Brown has her ready for today.

#6 Busy Morning-missed by just a length and a quarter in her debut then drew off to win by 6 last out in an impressive run. Trainer is having a good meet here hitting at 18% and has the one to beat.

#4 Dream Central-has rallied to win back to back races one my a neck and then a head last out. There is enough speed in here to set up her late run and she should be in the payoffs.

#3 Royal Dancer-should prove to be the speed of the speed and finished third behind our first and third picks missing by only ¾ of a length. She gets a rider upgrade to I.Ortiz and will try to steal it on the front end.

Selections 8-1-6-7 Rating ⭐⭐

#8 Loz-came off a two month layoff last out and finished 5th over the turf at Belmont while taking on tougher MSW runners. He shows four works here and is coming off a bullet work best of 70 others. He drops to MCL 40k and will come running late.

#1 Uragano-missed by only 4 over this course last out against MSW runners. He drops down to MCL and is the one to beat.

#6 Lookin Grand-dropped to this same level for his third career start last out and missed by 3 lengths. He shows two works here and should be in the payoffs.

#2 Ableton-showed speed last out, got in front late but had to settle for third beaten just 3 lengths at this same distance and level. Trainer adds blinkers and we should get a big price.
