Hersh: How I'd Play Saratoga on Wednesday, Aug. 27


Rain, rain, stay away - Saratoga has seven grass races today. The late pick four, in fact, is an all-turf event in which race 8 looks to these eyes the trickiest. Interest in the early races is tamped down by field size in several instances, though the P.G. Johnson, the early race 3 feature, is interesting. Some will sit out the early pick four and the pick five because of races 5 and 6, maiden races in which seeing the horses and the odds would be beneficial.
