Hersh: How I'd play Saratoga on Sunday, Aug. 30


This card is for the hardcore, the day after a massive 13-race Travers Day extravaganza. What’s more, it’s a tough one, too. There’s no single horse in any of the races on which I’d hang my shingle. Somewhat drained (mentally and financially) from Saturday’s pari-mutuel activities, I’m making one play on this card, the pick three covering races 6-8, and doing it in near-caveman style, with just one backup in two of the three races. Even if this sequence chalks out, it will cover the $48 cost of one $1 ticket, since I see no standouts in any of the races, though I suppose Ocean Knight could come in for serious race 8 support.
