Matt is a horse owner and handicapper who has had himself quite a meet at Saratoga. You can find more of his selections and writing at Trackside View.
Best of luck to everyone playing along! Take it away, Matt…
Race 1: I don’t know enough about hurdles to give an opinion
Race 2: 6 -2 -1
Alexndeed gets the top choice here as he should be able to wire them if Hi Speed Chase isn’t ready off the long layoff. Pletcher has good numbers when dropping from Maiden Special Weight to Maiden Claiming but will sit at a very short price, which we will look to beat.
Race 3: 1 – 6 -5 -3
Ancient Goddess is our top selection as she should improve with more distance and first time Lasix coming to the stakes. Rainha Da Bateria looked like a horse first out that would need more distance and ended up winning any way she is the one to beat here. Well use Magnificent Margo and Partisan Politics to fill out the superfecta.
Race 4: 1-6 -3
Beyond Empire needs to break through here and will sit right off the early speed , its now or never for him at a short price. Royal Possee gets the second spot here , it took him 9 tries and the drop to break his maiden but this isn’t a great field and he can improve. Gridley Here will fill out the trifecta as I said this isn’t much of a field and im hoping he take a liking to the dirt at a bit of a price.
Race 5: 9 -1 –7 – 4
Jamaalaree looks like he could be a fast horse, which did not like the slop and was forced to run early. He will be overlooked in this spot with an apprentice jockey Majestic Bloom will get our second spot everything Weaver has sent out at this meet has been live. Second time starters First Charmer and In Spite of Mama will be used to fill out the superfecta.
Race 6: 2 -8 -1 -6
Laura’s Patriot is our top choice as Gullo does extremely well when debuting in the maiden claiming ranks. Club O R is our second choice as Violette’s 2 year olds have been running very well this meet. Shes Roman will be our 3rd choice with the high percentage trainer/jockey combo here. The Warrior Girl is our fourth selection Ubilo’s horses have been running well enough to hit the board here and he wouldn’t be shipping up from Gulfstream for no reason.
Race 7: 4 – 1 – 6
Stormy Rocit gets the top slot here as he may have run her best race when stepping into the Weaver barn and should keep moving forward. Isntlovejustgrand is our second choice and he has shown speed and rating ability and should sit right off Console. Console fills out the tri , last out he caught them all off guard and took them gate to wire which makes him 2 for 2 over the Saratoga turf course but even money is no bargain here.
Race 8: 10 – 9 – 7 – 4
Zane is the top choice as this trainer has been looking for a spot to run him in ever since his slop effort, which was not his best showing. Media Kid is coming out of the same race as our top selection but looks much more suitable to the turf and should run well here. Saylers Creek will be the one they have to catch and beat with the meets top jockey Javier Castellano aboard. Treasury Devil will fill out the superfecta coming late with a strong rally as he has done in the past.
Race 9: 6 – 9 – 10
Casa Creek should have won last out and got interfered with by the winner when no foul was claimed by the jockey or trainer. Pirates Pleasure will be the one who’s going to try and pick up the pieces at a price if it gets hot up front. Ziptronic was finally able to pick up a win at Saratoga and is the one to catch but the last race set up very well for him and ill be against him here.
Race 10: 6 – 8 – 9 -1
Morse is the top choice as he seems to be the only speed this time after he worked hard last time to get the lead. In cheap races sometimes cheap horses aren’t able to pass other cheap horses. Dynamon Coming back after a brief freshening should improve and adds blinkers for this spot. If you think the race he came out of on Aug 14th was as strong than this is the horse you want as he had too much to overcome that day. Eight Cents will fill out the super though he is 0/13 he has hit the board 7 of those times and can be there at a price.
