Saragota internet plays for Monday


Bohemian Rain was scratched from Sunday's first race, so the bankroll got a day off. Just as well, because I don't think she was going to beat the winner, Suave Queen, who ran big as the favorite.

We close out week #4 on Monday with a chalky parlay:


That's Our Point comes off two races in July that were the best of his life, and drops into a maiden claimer for Ian Wilkes, who has been live with everything he has sent out at the meet.

The bet: $50 to win on That's Our Point. After he wins, parlay everything onto...


After That's Our Point wins at about 4-5, we'll put the whole bundle on Gold Like U in the $70,000 Union Avenue Stakes.

Gold Like U has been vastly improved since returning from a long layoff with blinkers on, winning twice and running second twice. One of the runner-up finishes came against Stormy Kiss, who won the Grade 2 Honorable Miss Handicap here earlier at the meet.

The bet: The total return from race 2 to win on Gold Like U; if That's Our Point is scratched, $50 to win on Gold Like U; if That's Our Point lost, no bet on Gold Like U.

Total wagers Sunday: $0

Total wagers for meet: $1,022
Total return for meet: $682.50
Total win/loss for meet: minus $339.50
