Saratoga internet plays for Monday


We made an easy score in Sunday's third race when Getcozywithkaylee did the expected and wired her field, and Toll Taker was the only one running at her in the stretch to complete a $22.20 exacta. Our $25 box came back $277.50, netting us $227.50 for the day.

We're within shouting distance of black ink, and we have one bullet left to fire.


We've been having some luck with these two-horse exacta boxes during the final days, so let's stay with what's working. Win With Beck is the best of these New York-bred routers when he fires, and he has had a freshening since chasing repeater Auguri in a high-end allowance/optional claimer against open company. Win With Beck has run well fresh on two occasions since last fall, and will have every chance to control the pace from his inside post.

The horse we want to wake up here is Dont Knock America, who was unable to make a serious impact in statebred stakes in his last two starts. He was very competitive at this level prior to that, however, and will probably be a bigger price than he should be.

The bet: $30 exacta, Win With Beck over Dont Knock America, and reverse it for $20.

Total investment is our usual $50.

Note: Should either horse scratch, we'll just bet the $50 to win on the remaining horse.
