There are plenty of great horse races across America on Friday, including at Saratoga Racecourse. We’ve been in great shape with our picks for a long time, making a profit of +279 units with our racing picks at our recommended stakes dating back to August 5, 2021.
Let’s keep rolling! Here are our best bets for today’s action in Saratoga.
5:03 p.m. Saratoga (Race 8) – Mischievous Dream 15/1 (1-Star Game)
Race 8 at Saratoga is the $200,000 Yaddo Handicap for the women’s division over a mile and a sixteenth on turf and I like the odds of the filly in stall four, Mischievous Dream, who won her maiden here and Has been running well lately. This daughter of Into Mischief is a winner of the stakes and if she reaches the level of her penultimate run by scoring at Belmont Park, she should be in the money.
5:39 p.m. Saratoga (Race 9) – Perfect Munnings 12/1 (1-star play)
A field of twelve is ready to go post for this hotly contested seven-stadium optional $100,000 allotment claim event on dirt in which the key point formed by Chad Brown is likely to be tough to beat, but he is value against him in the form of Perfect Munnings. The Todd Pletcher colt won a similar contest over course and distance last season and he should do well from his third-place finish at Belmont Park in June, which was his first start in eight months.
6:13 p.m. Saratoga (Race 10) – Somelikeithotbrown 7/2 (2-star game)
The penultimate competition in Saratoga features older horses with very good form in the book and a case can be made for a few in that area, but none more than two-time course winner Somelikeithotbrown who can put his best footing in the $200,000 West Point Stakes. He’s a multiple ranked winner who has more than enough ability to win this, so if jockey Jose Ortiz can get into a top position early, from a good draw in stall three, then all his rivals will have their work cut out to beat him. .
6:47 p.m. Saratoga (Race 11) – Your Mission 5/2 (2-Star Game)
Pletcher’s Your Mission is still a four-start maiden, but his two second-place efforts in prized Maiden Special Weights at Aqueduct and here in Saratoga are about the best form on offer here and he can earn his first start in the company. Maiden Claiming. This is a pretty weak contest and it will be somewhat disappointing if your mission doesn’t go through in the finale.
