A beautiful day here at the Spa on this Thursday. The featured 8th race on the card today is the NY Stallion Series at one mile on the inner turf. Favorites seem to be the way to go in this one as I will use (#4) Lady Joan in exactas with (#6) Lover's Key and (#8) Carry Your Heels. Good Luck on this Thursday card at the Spa!

Every day throughout the meet, our horse racing insider Brian "The Closer" Mariano will give you his picks to help you win at the windows. The picks will be in order of preference and will include an early Pick 5 ticket, late pick 4 ticket and a best bet on the card! Follow him on twitter @Mariano_closer for his up to the minute selections and updates from Saratoga!
