Less Is More

Two-year-old stakes at Saratoga are some of the most fun races to watch and the toughest to handicap. Often you have horses who have made only one or two starts, and at times many of them have won them. I like these types of races. They offer less information which forces you to pull from experience and memory and your gut instincts to decide. You can separate the men from the boys, so to speak, and maybe find an edge. We’ll run down the Grade 2 Saratoga Special on Saturday and see how it [...]

Race 8 at Saratoga - Post Time 5:03 PM Eastern Ten for Ten, Speaker’s Corner, Ducale and the entry of Mahaamel & Ashiham are the win contenders.

By My Standards is a lovely horse and [...]

Key Horse Races & Expert Handicapper Bets – August 7, 2021

Glens Falls Stakes - Race 7 at Saratoga - Post Time 3:58 PM Eastern Luck Money, Call Me Love, War Like Goddess and Dalika are the win contenders. Temple City Terror should be considered for exacta and trifecta tickets. Luck Money just finished second, beaten a length, in a nearly identical stakes race run at a marathon distance. Fifth early and 13 lengths behind the leader, Luck Money surged to second, only a length back with an eighth of a mile to go but could not go by Dalika, who had pressed then led [...]
