 THE OBJECTIVE WAS TO TAKE DOWN the Late Pick 5 at Saratoga yesterday. Unfortunately, it did not come to pass. I gave you 24 horses to consider, after scratches, and had three winners, four places and five shows. That's a 50% "in the money" number. There were 15 "payable spots" to fill and I filled 12 of them for 80% 

Race 6 saw two my my pick scratch but I still had FLAVUS (6/5) as a winner. I also had TELL YOUR DADDY for place and VALUE PROPOSITION ran third, but for purse money only. Seems he lost a shoe before the race. 

Race 7 got WAR LIKE GODDESS home first for me (4/5) and I also had MY SISTER NAT for second and TEMPLE CITY TERROR show. 

Race 8 was the downfall. BELLA SOFIA (4-1) got the win and I excluded that one. I ran second with SOOPER SENSATIONAL and SEARCH RESULT.

Race 9 was another disappointment.  STATE OF REST lit up the board at 21-1 and I didn't have him. I managed a show out of the race with DU JOUR. I was pretty disappointed in BOISHOI BALLET. 

Race 10 got my pick KNICKS GO to the line first. I also had MAXFIELD for place and SILVER STATE to show. 

The Pick 5 paid $438.25 on the .50 cent variety. I thought that was low...but since I didn't hit it, it really doesn't matter.

We'll give it a go next Saturday
