Friday Saratoga....

Well I would have sworn the track would have been off all turf races, keep checking the board to make sure, but at of 11:30 am everything is fine. Turf is FIRM and track is FAST.

Race 1 turf sprint....no Linda Rice in the entrants. Nobody is hotter right now than Ramon Dominquez must include him in your picks (5 horse). The 9 horse was scratched Sunday and place here, interesting scenerio. Sunday was wet, today could be wet by post time.... We have Desormeaux on the 8 horse (again I like him on longer races) Exacta box 7-5-1

Race 5 well we have Pletcher and Johnny V. on the 1 horse. Going to be heavily bet. We have Dominquez and Dutrow on the 4 horse. We have trainer Lukas on a long shot with a great turf sprint rider in Cornelio Velazquez.... So why not use the 3 of them.... Box 1-4-5.

Race 6 an inner turf race...... The 13 gets in with a few scratches and LaParoux is riding. I am going with the 1-7-13 box.
Now the 5 may make a run. If you want to drop the 7 or the 1 and use the 5 do it. (Keep an eye out for the 8 horse STOCK FUND in the future. He was scratched today).

Race 9 A few good horses in this race. Daddy Knows Best ran very well last time out. The coupled entry of Skyring and Optimizer is tough. SkyRing was scratched earlier in the meet and comes back coupled with Optimizer who is a very good horse. Optimizer ran in the Kentucky Derby. he has great turf breading in English Channel, I think Skyring is the rabbit here for a closing set up for Optimizer. There is one horse in here that I saw run in a stakes race and the Jockey is riding the only race today. That is 6 horse and Quick Wit. Could be a wire to wire to horse.
Box the 1-6-7. Take a chance on the 7 to win for some odds if you want.

Race 10 passing. Nothing stands out. for shits and giggles 7-5-1 box

KEEP NOTE OF THE TURF CONDITIONS!! THESE PICKS ARE ONLY FOR TURF RACES!!

Good luck if you choose to follow.
