Saratoga internet plays for Monday


We hit our $50 win bet on Fete ($5.90) in Sunday's opener, getting back $147.50 for a net profit of $97.50 on the day.

Monday's card closes out week #5, so our chances to get the bankroll into the black are dwindling down to a precious few.


Cayuga's Waters has won just one of her nine starts on turf, and with the exception of a sloppy sprint at the unsuitable distance of six furlongs on June 3, turf is where she's been racing all year. Bill Mott is putting Cayuga's Waters back on dirt for Monday's Saratoga Dew Stakes at 1 1/8 miles, which seems like a good move because the filly was a 10-length route winner on Saratoga's main track last summer. A wet track would be to her advantage.

The bet: $50 to win on Cayuga's Waters

Total wagers previous day: $50

Total win/loss previous day: plus $97.50
