We have been picking some nice hits at Saratoga these last few days. In the 4th race, we picked three first time starters in our top tier. That was the Trifecta, and paid $215.00. Not bad for a $12 box. It is unfortunate that there wasn’t a Superfecta in the race since our 4th pick ran 4th. Only at WinningPonies are we crazy enough to pick three first time starters on top. In the 5th race we locked on Savasana who paid $5.50 to win. If you used our 2nd tier behind (the next 4 horses), you would have cashed in on the $146.50 Trifecta (on a $24 bet). If you used an extra horse for 4th (the top horse of our 3rd tier – ranked 6th overall), you would have collected $707.50 for the $1 Superfecta. This easy winner also gave us the $2 Pick 3 for races 3-5 which paid a modest $50.50. In the 8th race, our top pick Karakorum Starlet won and paid $9.00. Our 2nd pick, Precise Lady finished 3rd. Scatkey ran 2nd and was at the bottom of our 2nd tier. If you took our top tier for 1st and the whole field (only 5 horses) for 2nd and 3rd, you would have collected $122 for a $1 Trifecta (which would have cost $36 to bet). Not a bad Trifecta at all for a 5 horse race.
