Saratoga Horse Racing Picks for Saturday, August 29, 2020

Key Races & Bets for Saturday August 29, 2020Amsterdam Stakes - Race 7 at Saratoga - Post Time 4:32 PM EasternThis race quickly boils down to two strong contenders to win and one of them is not the second lowest odds on the morning line. Yaupon opens as the 8/5 favorite and is legitimate but Premier Star has a pretty decent probability to win as well. Long Weekend, who opens at 9/5, is a bit suspect on a lot of levels, foremost as even though he finished second via a disqualification in the Gold Fever [...]

Saratoga Horse Racing Picks for Saturday, August 8, 2020

Key Races & Bets for Saturday August 8, 2020Ballerina Stakes - Race 7 at Saratoga - Post Time 3:42 PM EasternThis race needs to go as drawn (no scratches) for this to work out because if both Serengeti Empress and Letruska both run, there’s little chance Serengeti Empress gets the early lead to herself she needs to win. So, I’m labeling Serengeti Empress as vulnerable and that makes the race very playable. Pink Sands won the Inside Information Stakes in January, a seven furlong graded stakes just like this one and that was her second [...]

Key Races & Bets for Saturday August 1, 2020H. Allen Jerkens Stakes - Race 10 at Saratoga - Post Time 6:18 PM EasternH. Allen Jerkens Stakes - Race 10 at Saratoga - Post Time 6:18 PM Eastern The morning line favorite, No Parole (9/5 starting odds), has a problem because although he’s five-for-six, all five wins have been earned leading from start to finish. Although he’s very fast in the early stages, so is Eight Rings and also Mischevious Alex. I just can’t see him getting his way on the front end as he did [...]

Saratoga and Woodbine Horse Racing Picks for Saturday, July 25, 2020

Key Races & Bets for Saturday July 25, 2020Race 7 at Saratoga - Post Time 4:32 PM EasternThis is a very interesting allowance race worthy of our attention, and our wagering dollars. The two top contenders are Montauk Daddy (15/1 morning line) and Kingmeister (8/1 morning line). The reason they offer value is because the favorite Proven Strategies is not a strong win contender although he certainly can win, or finish second. His career record is 2-3-1 in nine turf races and he’s being bet off a second place finish in a pair of stakes [...]
