Saratoga Results 7-25-20

An O.K. day yesterday in my Saratoga prognostications. I fell short of the intended objective -- hitting the late Pick 4 -- but had a few winners and exactas. 

I had all 16 horses that I had in my picks from yesterday go to post. Out of them, I had three winners, three seconds and a third. That's a 44% "in the money" percentage. We captured seven of the 12 possible "payout" spots in the four race sequence...good for a 58% percentage. A little lower than it the past weeks. 

The 9th Race really stymied me. None of my four picks hit the board and the winner (Turbo Drive) paid $36.60 to win. 

I started out the Pick 4 well, with my top pick Prioritize hitting the wire first and my second choice Money Moves finishing second. That exacta paid $26.60 and if you tossed my fifth pick in...Locally Owned -- you got rewarded with a $113 trifecta. 

Race 10 -- The Vanderbilt Handicap -- was just a four house race and my top picks finished one, two, three and fourth. Volatile handled the others easily and paid $2.60 to win. The exacta returned $8.90

In Race 11, I had the exacta of Timeless Journey ($8.00) to win, and Micromillion. That combo paid $30.60. 

The Pick 4 returned $893.  It would have been nice to have, but we can't win them all, I guess. 

I'll give it a go again next Saturday. Wither Saratoga or maybe Ellis Park, I'll look at the respective cards and make the call then.
