Saratoga Celebrates 150 years this summer. I will post selections for the Saturday cards.

The Grade I Alabama and Sword Dancer will be contested today. Very challenging card. Post time 1:00pm EST. Good luck.

All selections contenders for WIN.

All handicapping done BEFORE early scratches and changes became available.

Betting advice: 1 betting unit to WIN: 2 betting units to PLACE (WIN double PLACE).

 

If you are playing exotics (exacta, trifecta) I recommend using Part Wheels instead of boxes.

I like to put the highest odds horse on top and the others underneath. For example:

Selection: 4-12-5-3. The 12 is the highest odds horse in the selection, put on top:

Exacta 12/4,5,3 cost=$6($2 base bet) Trifecta 12/4,5,3/4,5,3 cost=$12

 

Look for value. Any selection going to post at odds higher than 5-1 is a value play.

My selections are just a heads up to take a second look during your handicapping.

Do your research and make up your own mind. Don't blindly bet these selections.

    Results for Saraoga Race Course August 17, 2013

    Best Longshot was scratched. I didn't even notice that the horse was a MTO (main track only). My bad.

    Best Bet won as a short priced favorite. I went to the simulcast facility and bet this race and nailed the cold exacta. Pic posted below.

    Overall this was a good day. Had 6 winners and 2 exactas. Missed several long priced horses though. Oh well, live and learn.
