Key Bets & Races for Saturday, August 19


Lake Placid Stakes - Race #8 at Saratoga – Post Time 5:02 PM ET

This race is playable but better still it's a lead in to a potentially very profitable Alabama Stakes and so some daily double plays are called for to be sure.

Party Boat and Proctor's Ledge just finished 2nd & 1st, respectively, in the Grade 3 Lake George Stakes over the track yet their starting odds of 4/1 and 5/2, respectively, pale to the 8/5 starting odds for La Coronel, not seen in 2 months and last seen 5th of 7 and uncompetitive in the Group 1 Coronation Stakes at Ascot in June. Granted, La Coronel ran without Lasix which she had for all four of her career wins and the top two finishers both came back to win important races, but she shouldn't be 8/5 in this group as even with her best effort there is no guarantee she will win. Uni was making her U.S. debut in the Grade 1 Belmont Oaks in July and her 10th to 3rd finish can be improved upon. As such, we will use four in doubles but if the low odds on La Coronel hold up we will get low odds overlays on both Party Boat and Proctor's Ledge, with their best efforts good enough to win.

Bet Party Boat and/or Proctor's Ledge to win at 2 to 1 or higher.

Alma North Stakes - Race #9 at Laurel Park – Post Time 5:10 PM ET

Follow No One comes off a very strong 6 length win 19 days ago at Monmouth, a race scheduled for turf but run on the main track that let her connections know she is as good on dirt as on turf, where her five starts before that had come. She can win on the lead or from off the pace and on the cut back from two turns to one turn and running 2nd off a layoff she can run well enough to win, providing a lot of value as she opens at 10/1. Sine Wave ran very well when 2nd to Sweet Loretta in the Grade 3 Beaumont Stakes at this 7 furlong trip when last seen. The drop in class to the non-graded stakes level may help her run as she did right before that when winning by 7 lengths at the trip. Yellow Agate began her career with an eye catching win last summer at Belmont before winning the Grade 1 Frizette Stakes in her 2nd career start. She ran poorly around two turns in the Breeder's Cup Juvenile Fillies but has been allowed to mature, returning around one turn and with some sharp workouts as well, signs she can run well enough to win. Shimmering Again also cuts back to one turn and is likely to lead from the start in an attempt to wire the field. Astrollinthepark also has a lot of early speed and lost all chance at the start in the Miss Preakness Stakes last month when she stumbled badly. These last two may battle and tire but can hang on for second.

Acorn Stakes - Race #4 at Belmont Park – Post Time 1:11 PM ET

Union Strike, who has never been worse than 2nd in four career one turn races, missed by a head to Benner Island on the wire in the Eight Belles Stakes on Kentucky Oaks day last month and would have won if she hadn't broken awkwardly to get away 9th and also if she didn't have her path blocked in the stretch, forcing her to alter her path and move laterally instead of straight. She's a Grade 1 stakes winner, having taken the Del Mar Debutante last year and she won her 2017 debut pretty easily in April before the Eight Belles so with a better early placing than last out she can win another grade 1 stakes. 

Sweet Loretta, who is 4 for 4 in one turn races, also ran big in her 2017 debut as a 3 year old when taking the Beaumont Stakes in April at Keeneland. Making her 2nd start of the year she should run even better than last out so has every right to win as well. Abel Tasman has no knocks except she will go to post at the lowest odds of the contenders based on her Kentucky Oaks win last month. That win came as she added blinkers but also as the early pace was contested and hot which benefited her greatly. She can win but is no standout. Benner Island, ran the best race of her career in the Eight Belles but Castellano moves to Sweet Loretta and even though Jose Ortiz is an adequate replacement that jockey move may be notable. Salty won two in a row in March and April including the Gulfstream Park Oaks before a troubled 5th in the Kentucky Oaks finish. She rounds out a quintet with a shot.

Bet Union Strike to win at odds of 5 to 2 or more. 

Play two exactas, keying Union Strike to finish first or second with four other horses. 

The first exacta is Union Strike over Abel Tasman, Benner Island, Sweet Loretta and Salty.

The second exacta is Abel Tasman, Benner Island, Sweet Loretta and Salty over Union Strike.

Penn Oaks Stakes - Race #6 at Penn National – Post Time 6:10 PM ET

Viva Vegas can post the upset, opening at 15/1, as going from a maiden winner to stakes winner as she's trying to do is something Diadura did last year, with Noble Ready going from maiden winner to stakes placed last summer. Viva Vegas came back from four and one-half months off on March 15 and won as she pleased by 6 in her first turf race and first two turn race, with an 88 Equibase figure higher than the maiden figure of most of these including recent stakes winners Party Boat and Adorable Miss. With Paco Lopez riding and likely to run even better than last out in her second start of the year, I'll key on Viva Vegas for profit here. Party Boat and Adorable Miss both should run well as both are coming off stakes wins on turf with 97 and 93 figures, respectively. Noble Ready finished second to Adorable Miss in her most recent start and should be considered for exactas, as should Spanish Harlem, who ran big in her only try on turf in her debut last December and who dominated in her most recent race, but in a three horse field. 

Bet Viva Vegas to win at odds of 3 to 1 or more. Add a place bet at 6 to 1 or more. 

Play an exacta consisting of Viva Vegas and Party Boat over Viva Vegas, Party Boat, Spanish Harlem, Adorable Miss and Noble Ready.
