SARATOGA PICK 4 (Races 2-5) by Mike Beer

Race 2

Key's: Best Case Scenario, Stroll to Victory

B's: Divorce Party, Bobby's Kitten, Indigo Kitten, Bold Visionary

C's:  None

Best Case Scenario was a solid 3rd in his debut and has the pedigree to handle turf and distance, and Stroll to Victory is working very well for a top trainer; keying them but using others, especially which ever part(s) of the Ramsey entry goes.

Race 3

Key's: Twang, Sky Drama

B's: Bay of Biscay

C's: None

Pletcher can't win all of the baby races up here, can he? Using his Bay of Biscay, but keying the two experienced runners against him in this leg.

Race 4

Key's: Parnelli, Mr. Jenney

B's: Supreme Commander

C's: Unitarian

Parnelli gets Lasix for the first time, a move which has worked several times over for this barn recently, and have to give Mr. Jenney one more chance after his no-show effort last time.  Unitarian can win here, but he's not much price so he's relegated to deep backup status. 

Race 5

Key's: Kauai Katie

B's: None

C's: Ju Ju Eyeballs, Irish Lute

Prioress is Kauai Katie's to lose, but we can really get paid if she doesn't fire, so backups will be the streaking Ju Ju Eyeballs and the improving Irish Lute.

SARATOGA PICK 3 (Races 8-10) by Mike Welsch

Race 8

A's - Sachem Spirit, Eternal Ruler

B's - Kris Royal, Film Shot

C's - Sarava's Dancer

Race 9

A's - Centre Court

B's - Stephanie's Kitten, Dream Peace

C's - Dayatthespa, Samitar

Race 10

A's - Palace Malice, Mylute

B's - Code West

C's - Freedom Child, Moreno

Structuring the ticket in this P3 sequence around Centre Court in the Diana. She encountered some bad racing luck in her last and is training like a monster since arriving locally. In the 8th race, Sachem’s Spirit could be ready to run a big one off the best for her new mentor while Eternal Ruler is also training well. Palace Malice should perhaps be a single in the Jim Dandy although have enough respect for Mylute to include as an A play.
