Saratoga internet plays for Sunday


Our original $100 pick 4 play was trimmed to $80 with the scratch of Bade of Silver from Saturday's Bernard Baruch Handicap. We lost any chance for a decent payoff when 6-1 shot Dreadnaught fell short by a neck to odds-on Ashkal Way in the Bernard Baruch. After Bernardini won the Travers to complete the chalky sequence, our return was half of the $58 payoff, a mere $29.

Let's just keep things simple on Sunday.


Fete has run two races this year - at Oaklawn Park and Churchill Downs - that are good enough to win Sunday's opener, and he is making his first start off a claim by Rick Dutrow Jr., who has won with 23 of 52 newly-claimed horses since the start of 2005, an astounding success rate of 44 percent.

The bet: $50 to win on Fete

Total wagers previous day: $80

Total win/loss previous day: minus $51

Total wagers for meet: $1,252
