Saratoga Race CourseI like some plays at The Spa on Wednesday, but the only thing is that they won’t light up the board alone. You are going to have to dig in, and find some value from the WinningPonies tier levels to make it a sweet pay day.

Saratoga – Wednesday

Race #1 – #1 Remark (9-5)

Ramon Dominguez in the irons for Kiaran McLaughlin, and they bat 20% together. 5/6 lifetime ITM, and been off since June 13th… Beaten favorite last out, and draws the red-hot rail. Stretching out from a mile to 1 1/16, and the race lacks a real pace. I see this 3-yr-old filly by Distorted Humor not looking back from the gate.

Race #3 – #4 Yawkey Way (6-5)

J.J. Castellano up for the white knuckle hot Chad Brown (37%). As a team, they win 36% together. Heavily bet last out, and goes from 5 1/2 to 6 panels. This runner must beat Watkins Glen if a picture is in the cards today. I would use them both in a nice exacta box. 2-yr-old filly by Grandslam, and the hot trainer make her look ultra attractive. This is the $70,000 Ann Clare Stakes, and she can better her record with a clean trip.

Race #8 – #1 Ibboyee (1-1)

John Velazquez up for Pletcher. Both are scorching the Spa, and the horse seems to enjoy the track, going 1/1 so far. I like the morning blast on August 19 to put things in order. Gets the golden rail, and the barn is a 27% winner off a victory.

Good luck, and enjoy your Wednesday!
