Joe's Picks- Saratoga- September 5, 2022

Race 6- Waterville #6 This is a pretty wide-open turf affair and I like #6 WATERVILLE.  This gal is a model of consistency and can usually find any kind of trip to her liking.  Cristophe Clement has a real runner here and with Luis Saez in the irons. I feel that she can work through […]

Race 6- Stunningly #5 #4 Pure Pauline is sure to take a lot of action in this 7-furlong maiden special weight race on dirt due to her connections (Stonestreet Stables Pletcher Ortiz Jr.), but I like #5 STUNNINGLY.  This filly had an educational debut in early July at Churchill Downs where she dueled with the […]

Race 1- exacta with #3 Ari Gold on top By virtue of his workouts, #3 ARI GOLD is a standout in this race.  Todd Pletcher is a superior trainer with first-time starters and he has his go to jockey riding in Irad Ortiz Jr.  I think this horse will blow them away. BET- $20 exacta […]

Race 1- Ma Mi Jo Dreams #2 This is a very competitive maiden special weight sprint on the dirt with the #1 MY SWEET SUMMER being pretty obvious as she will take a lot of interest due to her workouts.  I am going to put a small wager on #2 MA MI JO DREAMS who […]

Race 3- Sly Sloane #2 & Influentialous #6 A lot of questionable horses in this maiden special weight sprint on turf, so I am going with two small win bets.  The first is #6 INFLUENTIALOUS who got the feel for the Saratoga turf course on August 5th when she showed good speed and faltered at the […]

Race 3- Wicked Secret #1 & Niewendyk #8 This is an interesting 5.5 turf sprint for maidens as everyone in here has a case.  I am going to put small win bets on two first-time starters.  The first is #1 WICKED SECRET who has very strong turf breeding coming out of Mendelssohn.  He has a […]

Race 1- Mademoiselle Jackie #9 There are a lot of well meant firsters in this maiden special weight route for 2-year olds and the two Chad Brown trained entrants will take a lot of action, but I am going with #9 MADEMOISELLEJACKIE.  Cristophe Clement is exceptional with young turf horses, especially going a route of […]

Happy Travers Day and good luck to all players today! Race 1- Verifying #3 There are some expensive colts in this maiden special weight sprint, and I am going with the most expensive one in #3 VERIFYING.  He could possibly go off favorite depending on if the betting public wants to back Brad Cox or […]

Happy New York Showcase Day where New York Breds will be featured all day! Race 2- Funny How #4 #3 PHOTON will go off as the favorite in this maiden special weight sprint on dirt , but she always seems to have some trouble at the start, so I am going with second-time starter #4 […]

Race 2- Cant Keep Me Down #5 There are some nicely bred runners in this maiden special weight turf sprint and with 10 entrants it should be a mad scramble.  I like #5 CANT KEEP ME DOWN for the strong combination of Irad Ortiz, Jr. and Todd Pletcher.  This horse comes from a 13% debut […]
