Free Saratoga Horse Pick Saturday 9/5


After a somewhat mentally straining Friday afternoon we regroup and come back strong for Saturday.

(The following is strictly an opinion of what the eyes saw, not an accusation - but it seriously makes you wonder sometimes.)

It seemed very clear to me and too A LOT of people watching including a NYRA TV analysis that Saratoga's 3rd race on Friday stinks to high heaven and deserves to be looked at by NYS Wagering and Gaming. It wasn't the first time that Irad Ortiz gave a less than winning effort eventually losing to his brother at much higher odds. Irad absolutely ripped the face off this mare for the first 5 furlongs, he finally gives her her head just before the far turn when she freely accelerates but flattens out losing by a head. The favorite in the race also was given a absolute terrible ride racing in traffic in what also looked like 'no effort to win' setting it up for the younger Ortiz brother at a big price.

Granted, this is what many players including myself wondered if we saw - it could just be a string of coincidences, but that race yesterday should still be investigated as its not the first time this summer that Irad found "trouble" while Jose wins at the bigger price.

On to Saturday where a 872 race card awaits. Kidding obviously but 12 races with the last post time at 7PM it plain greedy. NYRA trying to siphon every last cent as its "last guest experience" of the season.

I have completely handicapped Saratoga races 1-12 with Pick5, Pick4 and Pick3 wagers suggested. I have a (4 STAR) Best Bet today that will anchor one of my Late Pick4 plays. I have a total freak up against a big name favorite and can't wait to play. Mind those bank rolls today, its gonna be a long day.

For Saturday's Free Pick ~

Saratoga race 8 - #5 GO AROUND - this Billy Mott trained son of Medaglia d'Oro exploded to victory when going around two turns here on August 7th, which is a true effort as Mr Mott hot start had been over for at least a week when this colt won. He remains on his toes working swiftly in the mornings and returns in stakes company. He should sit a perfect trip tracking Sky Hero and power home for another victory.

The very best of luck.
