Race 3 - Maiden - 300y on the Dirt. Purse: $14400 Class Rating: 58

QUARTER HORSE 300Y, FOR MAIDENS, THREE YEARS OLD AND UPWARD. WEIGHT, 120 LBS.


RECOMMENDED CHOICES
The Walker Group Picks

# 5 KAZOOMIN 3/1

# 2 WINNERS REX 7/2

# 1 FLASHY LIFESTYLE 8/1

I've got to go with KAZOOMIN. Will probably be one of the front-runners of the group going into the halfway point of the affair. Is difficult not to examine given the company run in recently. Ran a strong last race. WINNERS REX - The almost immediate return to the track points to a reliable effort this time around. FLASHY LIFESTYLE - Entrants trained by Reid in short races are usually formidable. Recent numbers for the rider - 19 win percent - make this filly stand out in this group.

Gulfstream Park - Race #3 - Post: 2:21pm - SO - 8.0 furlongs on the Dirt. Purse: $24,000 Class Rating: 87

Rating: 4

#2 ESKEN LADY (ML=7/2)
#4 MISS VISCONTI (ML=10/1)


ESKEN LADY - The rider and handler combination have a beneficial return on investment when they join forces. Not much pace in this race other than this horse. Ran last time out against a much better field at Gulfstream Park. The move to a lower class rank should suit her well. MISS VISCONTI - The ROI when Alvarado and Estevez partner up is terrific. Jockey hops back up on board after getting to know the horse by riding last out. That's always a great angle. This mare is in nice form, having run a nice race on August 6th, finishing first.

Vulnerable Contenders: #3 AMALUNA (ML=9/5), #5 WINNING FOR SARAH (ML=5/2), #1 LOYAL HEART (ML=6/1),

AMALUNA - This horse doesn't have a winner's mental state. Very often finishes in the place or show spot. WINNING FOR SARAH - Would have to get much more than the morning line odds of 5/2 to play this horse. LOYAL HEART - This filly didn't race too well last time out.



STRAIGHT WAGERS:
#2 ESKEN LADY is going to be the play if we are getting 8/5 or better

EXACTA WAGERS:
Box [2,4]

Race 3 - Maiden Claiming - 5.0f on the Turf. Purse: $16000 Class Rating: 77

FOR MAIDENS, THREE, FOUR, AND FIVE YEARS OLD. THREE YEAR OLDS, 118 LBS.; OLDER, 122 LBS. CLAIMING PRICE $16,000 IF THIS RACE IS TAKEN OFF THE TURF, IT WILL BE RUN AT 5 FURLONGS ON THE MAIN TRACK.


RECOMMENDED CHOICES
The Walker Group Picks

# 1 OUT OF THE OFFICE 3/1

# 6 OATER 7/5

# 4 VOLT 15/1

I have to consider OUT OF THE OFFICE here. Jockey's recent ROI figures make this colt a very good bet. Must be given a chance based on the strong speed rating posted in the last race. Is a strong contender based on figures garnered lately under today's conditions. OATER - Has very good Equibase Class Figures relative to this group of horses - worth a look. Demonstrates the look of a lucrative play, averaging a solid 70 speed rating which is one of the strongest in this group.

Penn National - Race #5 - Post: 7:49pm - Claiming - 8.0 furlongs on the Dirt. Purse: $19,000 Class Rating: 96

Rating: 3

#2 NEBIKON (ML=4/1)
#4 BOWMAN'S BEAST (ML=5/1)
#6 HUNTIN'THEHOLIDAYS (ML=6/1)


NEBIKON - When a thoroughbred drops at least 5 pounds (like this one is), you must take notice. It may not seem like much, but could make the difference. This one could be a possible overlay right here at morning odds of 4/1. Finished fourth in last race at Penn National but was close at the finish. Closed well in last race. Longer distance should help. BOWMAN'S BEAST - This jock/conditioner duo has been producing a very profitable ROI, right at +29. HUNTIN'THEHOLIDAYS - When Hernandez and Graci team up on animals the return on investment has been wonderful at +56. This horse has increased his Equibase speed figures in each of the last 2 races. That kind of progress is worth considering when its time to bet. This gelding's last rating is strong enough to win here, I'll invest in him right back in today's event.

Vulnerable Contenders: #1 ESCAPE TO THE MOON (ML=5/2), #5 GREY GATOR (ML=3/1), #3 CAPTURED (ML=5/1),

ESCAPE TO THE MOON - This gelding finished out of the top three on September 9th and wasn't close to victory in the last race either. GREY GATOR - This gelding is always in the money, but just doesn't win. Difficult to play him on the win end. CAPTURED - This stretch-runner looks to have slight chance without a speed duel on the front end.



STRAIGHT WAGERS:
Putting our cash on #2 NEBIKON to win. Have to have odds of at least 7/2 or better though

RACE #9 - SARATOGA RACE COURSE - 5:18 PM EASTERN POST
The Riskaverse Stakes
8.0 FURLONGS INNER TURF THREE YEAR OLD FILLIES STAKES $100,000.00 PURSE

#10 CHUBBY STAR
#13 RUBILINDA
#6 BERNAVIDA
#8 DANCELAND

The turf race for 3-year-old fillies was first run in 2009 and named for Peter G. Schiff's outstanding mare, a two-time winner of the Flower Bowl Invitational in 2004-05. Riskaverse, who also won the 2002 Queen Elizabeth II Challenge Cup, retired with more than $2 million in earnings. Schiff, president of Northwood Ventures, LLC, named the daughter of Dynaformer after an economic concept based on the behavior of investors who, when faced with two investments with a similar expected return (but different risks), will prefer the one with the lower risk. Here in the 9th running of "The Verse," #10 CHUBBY STAR, a 9-2 shot, has turned in "POWER RUN PERFORMANCES" in each of her last five outings, hitting the board in three of those races, including a "POWER RUN WIN" in her 4th race back. #13 RUBILINDA, the morning line favorite, broke her maiden in her "first asking," and comes off a "POWER RUN PLACE" finish in her last start.

At the Gate - Thursday
August 23, 2017
By Mike Dempsey

Here is the second race (the opener is a steeplechase race) from Saratoga to get the day off to a good start:

SAR Race 2 Md $50,000 (1:33 ET)
#5 La Contessa 5-2
#7 Strategic Dreams 4-1
#3 Tied Up 5-1
#1 Yes I Dance 5-1

Analysis: La Contessa stalked the early pace and did not have enough punch left late, weakening to finish fifth in her debut going 5 1/2 on turf here. She drops in for a tag while switch to the main track. By Congrats and the first foal to race out of a Harlan's Holiday mare. the pedigree suggests dirt might be better for her. Pletcher is 32% winners (with a +ROI) with second out maidens.

Strategic Dreams is a $25,000 purchase making her debut for the RRod barn that is 14% winners with first timers. She is by Archarcharch (9% winners with debut runners) out of a D'wildcat mare, her first foal to race. The works are not much but she does not catch a very tough looking group of state breds here.

Wagering
WIN: #5 to win at 2-1 or better.
EX: 5,7 / 1,3,5,7
TRI: 5,7 / 1,3,5,7 / 1,2,3,5,7


Today’s Featured Race of the Day from Saratoga:

SAR Race 9 The Riskaverse (5:40 ET)
#3 Pretty City Dancer 20-1
#13 Rubilinda 5-2
#12 Cherry Lodge 7-2
#11 Defiant Honor 6-1

Analysis: Pretty City Dancer is worth a look here at a generous price as the many contenders in here all drew poorly. Our top pick makes her turf debut here for the Casse barn that is 14% winners moving runners from dirt to turf. This gal was a $825,000 purchase and is a Grade 1 winner on dirt, taking the Spinaway last September here at seven furlongs. She is out of a Carson City mare that has dropped four other winners and three have won on turf.

Rubilinda needs a scratch to get in off the AE list. The filly broke her maiden in her debut at six furlongs and then was a good second against Alw-1 foes at seven furlongs. She is bred to go long, by Frankel out of a stakes placed Invincible Spirit mare. The Brown barn is 27% winners moving runners from sprint to route. She still looks as if she has a ton of upside.

Wagering
WIN: #3 to win at 10-1 or better.
EX: 3,13 / 2,11,12,13
TRI: 3,13 / 2,11,12,13 / 2,4,11,12,13


Live Longshots:

These are price plays for exotic players looking to find a couple of extra contenders to use in their trifecta and superfecta wagers. Or for those with smaller bankrolls, you might want to get in a small win-place wager.

Saratoga

R1: #1 All the Way Jose 8-1
R5: #8 Zeven 10-1
R6: #4 Tough Old Bird 8-1
R9: #3 Pretty City Dancer 20-1
