Spinaway Stakes – Race 10 at Saratoga – Post time 6:11 PM ET

This may be my last 123racing blog for a while as they make some business changes. If you've appreciated these insights please let them know you would like me to continue. In the Spinaway Stakes, Pure Silver isn't the lock her even money starting odds make it appear she is. Lady Ivanka is playable opening at 9 to 2 as she won easily by 8 lengths in her debut last month and Ortiz rides back, the filly having put in a big best of 55 four furlong workout coming into the race to send a big signal she's in top shape. Pure Silver is 3 for 3 and certainly can win, as can Separation of Powers, who opens at 6 /5 off an 11 length debut win.

Bet Lady Ivanka to win at odds of 2 to 1 or more. Use all three horses on any double or pick 3 tickets played as well as in the Pick 4 that starts this page.

Sword Dancer – Travers – Ballston Spa Pick 3 – Races #10, 11 & 12 Saratoga

Race 10 Post Time 4:49 PM ET

The last pick 3 on the Travers day card looks very playable for a profit because the Travers is wide open (more on that later) with some good double digit odds chances and because the other two legs are pretty predictable. In the first leg, the Sword Dancer Stakes, the two European runners (Idaho and Erupt) have a tremendous class edge over the five North American runners based on who they have been facing. For example, Idaho just finished third in the King George & Queen Elizabeth Stakes to a filly (Enable) who has now won four straight Group 1 races including one just this week. Idaho was also favored in his only North American try, last fall in the G1 Canadian International Stakes, in which he was beaten 2 1/2 lengths by Erupt.

In the third leg, the Ballston Spa Stakes, even though Lady Eli is tough as nails, Antonoe may have beaten her last month in the Diana if not blocked late, and Roca Rojo could beat her to win if she repeats her amazing effort in the Distaff Turf Mile on Derby day.

Race 10 – EruptIdaho

Race 11 – West CoastTapwritGood SamaritanGirvinMcCrakenFayeq

Race 12 – Lady EliRoca RojoAntonoe

The cost at $1 is $36 and if Lady Eli is beaten the payoff will be well worth the risk.

Adirondack Stakes - Race #4 at Saratoga – Post Time 2:44 PM ET

This is a KEY BETS blog, and even at low odds Sly Roxy is a KEY BET in this year's Adirondack Stakes. She showed a lot of maturity in her debut 16 days ago here at Saratoga when sitting a length off the pace from the start then moving forward with authority on the turn to draw off by three lengths early in the stretch before easily winning by five lengths. She's bound to improve off the experience of a race and the 87 Equibase figure earned is the second best in the field to Pure Silver, who earned her 90 figure in a statebred stakes and when leading from start to finish, that kind of effort being repeated here perhaps a bit more problematic today from the rail and with other "early" pace types in the field. With Castellano riding back, Sly Roxy should be very tough to beat. Pure Silver could easily hang on for second or third after setting the early pace, as could another horse that led from start to finish in her only start, Limited View.

Bet Sly Roxy to win at odds of 3 to 2 or higher.

Play a trifecta consisting of Sly Roxy over Pure Silver & Limited View over ALL. Play another trifecta consisting of Sly Roxy over ALL over Pure Silver & Limited View.

West Virginia Governor's Stakes - Race #7 at Mountaineer – Post Time 4:35 PM ET

The Player gets the ground saving rail as he stretches out from a comeback sprint following 11 months off, a big effort rallying to miss 2nd by a neck with a career best Equibase figure. Second in the 2017 Indiana Derby before the rest, this well bred colt is likely to run a new career best figure and post the upset opening at 8 to 1. Iron Fist just won the Grade 3 Cornhusker Stakes, then was flattered when runner up Texas Chrome came back to win. Santana has been up for 2 of his last 4 wins and that most recent effort earned a field high last race 111 figure so he should be very competitive again. Page McKenney is all heart, having been 1st or 2nd in his last 12 races going back to two years ago when 2nd in this race. Now with 33 first or second place finishes and $1.5 million in the bank, he shows no signs of slowing down and if Page McKenney goes to post anywhere near his 9/2 starting odds those will be the highest odds he's gone to post at in 12 of his last 13 races and very playable to win and place to be sure. Favorites Matt King Coal and Madefromlucky as well as Fear The Cowboy are all consistent but NOT standouts, so I'll use them in the second position on exacta plays, particularly noting Matt King Coal has the speedy Red Dragon Tattoo right next to him to take away any early speed edge he might otherwise have.

Bet The Player to win at odds of 2 to 1 or higher.

Consider a win and place bet on Page McKenney at 2 to 1 or higher.
