    Good luck, East Coast. Played two so far:

    Race 1
    $20 win #7 Inside Info 6-1
    $2 exbx 4-7
    .50c tri 4,7/ALL/4,7
    $2 DD 4,7/3
    I thought this would be a big rebound meet for Weaver after last years dud, but it hasn’t materialized. He gears his whole barn for this meet all year long so hoping he’s saving the live ones for the second half. He has one entered in the Alabama, so maybe this weekend is “go time.”

    Race 8
    $20 win #3 Party in the Sand 20-1
    $2 exbx 3/ALL
    Martin usually excels here going first over the course, but he’s O fer in that scenario with both his winners coming second over. Based on his past history, I’m guessing he’s got a live one waiting in the weeds first over the course.

    Good luck to anyone playing and hope everyone is doing well!

      Gonna try Baker in race 2. Maybe his second time over the coursers are the way to go. Ran well last out but is dead on the board. Interesting situation that you see only at Saratoga usually, horse is “dropping” into a claimer, yet the purse is higher($75k) than the purse of the starter allowance($60k) last out. A little speed duel up front will help.

      $20 win #3 Shock Therapy 6-1
      $2 ex 3/ALL
      $2 DD 3/3,8

          Maker does well here in turf marathons. The longer the better. Hasn’t popped one yet this meet.

            Seas part for a Chad Brown fave. What a surprise.


            • #7
              Back for more torture in race 7

              $20 win #6 Harlan’s Harmony 8-1
              $2 ex 6/All
              $1 P3 6/3/ALL
              Terranova been suspicious inactive so far, so jumping in at this price, which is drifting up. Horse won a turf stake here as a two year old. Perhaps a horse for the course......

                        Any luck, EC? Betamerica isn’t carrying Del Mar so can’t watch.

                          Caught the $99 double 9-3 a couple of times to start the night, after that not much, some right horses winning but wrong hookups
