Saratoga Keys, B's and C's: August 18


Saratoga: Keys B’s C’s for Sunday, Aug. 18

4:39 SAR Race 8 (exacta, trifecta)

Key’s:  Concise

B’s: Watsdachances, Silsita

C’s: Tapicat, Caroline Thomas

Blinkers go on CONCISE (#1, 5-1), a British-bred filly who absolutely came flying in her stateside debut for a barn that specializes in these kinds of projects. Like that Rosario sees fit to stay aboard, and no lack of pace in here could set up just right for her potent kick. Key her first and second in exactas and tri’s with a pair of proven sorts, WATSDACHANCES (#3, 2-1) and SILSITA (#6, 6-1), the latter having been scratched last week by TAP to await this very spot. Also may be advisable to salt in a couple of fringe players, TAPITCAT (#2, 9-5) and CAROLINE THOMAS (#7, 12-1), on the bottom tier of the tri, e.g., a tri part-wheel of 1 with 3/6 with 2/3/6/7, along with other logical variations. – Marty McGee
