Closer’s Saratoga Selections (August 16th)
We start week 5 of the meet after hitting on our late pick 4 ticket on Monday for $220! With some extra cash in our pocket, let's try and hit today's sequence that includes the featured 9th race; the Bolton Landing for 2-year old fillies going 5 and a half furlongs on the turf. Many of these fillies coming off impressive victories but let's key in on a couple in this race.
Todd Pletcher sends out 2 in this race and believes the (#5) March X Press could be ready to pick up the pieces with the pace that could be quick early. Taking a look back at her last start where she hit the gate and was left 3 lengths behind the rest of the field and still came back to win; the pace could set up perfect for her again.
We're going to try and make some money with (#5) March X Press on top with $5 exacta key boxes including (#1) Fairyland, (#2) Mentality and (#3) Sly Beauty and $10 win and place on (#5) March X Press. Good luck on this Wednesday 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 the best bet on the card!
