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 5-1 Cheeky Tico J. Samuel 118 Lbs O. Noda $40,000 L

Selections 1-2-3 Rating ⭐⭐

#1 Strong Light-has improved in his last three in a row. He missed by just half a length, then finished 3rd beaten a length and ¾ in a key race in which the top two finishers both came back to win then in his last out he rallied to finish third while taking on 75k maidens. He drops down to 40k and will come running late.

#2 Psychic Income-made the lead, opened up four lengths but got nailed late and missed by just a nose in his debut last out. He will show his speed again today and is the one to beat.

#3 North Pole-1 million dollar 4 year old was claimed last out for 40k while missing by just a head. New trainer is making a comeback after a 4 year absence and at one time he was the best trainer in New York.

  • 8 8 ML 10-1 Lady Firefoot J. Castellano 124 Lbs P. Reynolds $75,000 L

Selections 1-5-7-8 Rating ⭐⭐⭐

#1 Beachfront Bid-has been in the money in 4 of her 5 career starts all against MSW runners. She is coming off her best race to date while missing by just a length and this drop down to 75k makes her the one to beat.

#5 Miss Bonnie T-was claimed two back at this same level then missed by just a neck last out with blinkers on for the first time, over this course. She is back at the same level, cuts back in distance and should be close from the start at a decent price.

#7 Gather the Facts-missed by just half a length in her debut then had a rough trip from the #12 post last out. The blinkers come off and this filly will improve.

#8 Lady Firefoot-broke slow but rallied to miss by only 4 lengths going 5 1/2f in her debut. She gets more ground today and could help our payoffs.

Selections 1--4 Rating ⭐⭐⭐

#1 The Brown entry- #1 Transactional-is a first timer who is working well for his debut and gets I.Ortiz. #1A Indemnify-finished second in his debut last out missing by just ¾ of a length over this course and this entry will be tough to beat but will be a very short price.

#5 Logan’s Runner-230k first timer from the Levine barn who is hitting at 21% with his first timers and at 23% here. This is the one we need to fire if we are going to make any money at all in here.

#4 Whiskey Lullaby-made the lead last out before finishing 3rd over this course and was claimed. New trainer is hitting at 33% with his claims in their first start and he moves this one up in class.

Selections 1-5-6-3 Rating ⭐⭐

#1 Nicholas James-went wire to wire in his debut to win by 12 lengths and has taken on tougher starter allowance in four straight since. He drops down to 25k non winners of two and will be the one to catch.

#5 Perfect Silent Cat-is another dropping in class this one for 17% winning trainer Sharp. He adds blinkers and this one will come running late.

#6 Top of the Mint-drops from 40k to 25k, shows three works over the track and should run into the payoffs.

#3 Joey Loose Lips-is coming off a year layoff but was running well then. He is working well for his comeback and has speed.

Selections 9-2-6-8 Rating ⭐

#9 Provision-got a head in front late in his debut last out but had to settle for second beaten a length and a quarter. He comes back at the same distance and level and is the one to beat.

#2 Secretary of War-finished third in his debut last out just a length and a quarter behind our top pick. Trainer is hitting at 24% with his maidens in their second start and this gelding should be right there again today.

#6 Let’s Go Big Blue- from the same barn as our top pick. This 200k colt is working well and if I had a nickel for every time a trainer who has more than one runner in race, wins said race with his horse who is the bigger price, I would have a lot of nickels.

#8 El Quemado-finished 8 lengths behind our top pick last out in his debut. Trainer is stinking up the place here at Saratoga winning with only 1 of his 53 starters but this one could run into the payoffs at a price.

Selections 8-5-6-10 Rating ⭐⭐

#8 A Little Faith-came off a year and 9 month layoff two back and finished second missing by 3 lengths then missed by only 2 last out over this course. She is making her third start back today and should be ready for her best at a good price.
