Winning Ponies is hitting on cylinders, and the players are having a great summer. It is never too late to get on board, as there is plenty of red-hot action to play. Winning Ponies has their sites set on Saratoga, and the testimonials speak of incredible winners! Here is a little glimpse of the E-Z Win Forms for Saturday, and be sure to examine every tier level to maximize your value potential.



The weather forecast calls for 75 degrees, and a 10% chance of precipitation.


Race #1 – Alw $82,000 – 7f – 1:00 p.m. ET

#5 – Intermix (8-1) = John Velasquez and Bill Mott team up, and they have been winning at a 30% clip at the Spa. This gelding sports the “Turf to Dirt and Should Improve” icons. His Last Race Rating is a 57+, and that means a better than usual performance is on the way. His Composite Rating is a 57 as well, as this three-year-old is 3/6 ITM lifetime. Mott knows how to spot his runners, and Mr. Velasquez owns the most wins in the 150-year history of Saratoga.


Race #4 – Mdn Sp Wt – 1 1/16 on the turf – 2:31 p.m. ET

#3 – Weave (8-1) = Alan Garcia gets the nod for trainer Graham Motion. In the last year, they are winning 21% together and they are 1/1 with a win at the Spa. Motion is a patience personified, and brings his runners only when ready. The barn wins 42% with turf runners, and is a crisp 52% ITM when they go a route of ground on the green. It is all about the numbers for this first time starter as he owns the best Turf Class Rating of 18.4. Add in that he carries the “Monster Workout, First Time Starter, and Three-Year-Old” icons to alert his potential ability to score on this day. Garcia wins on the turf at a 16% rate, and Motion is 45% ITM with his first timers.


Race #9 – The $100,000 Auntie Mame Stakes – 1/16 on the turf – 5:12 p.m. ET

#8 – Summer of Fun (7-2) = Joe Rocco Jr. gets the ride for the George Weaver barn. This filly sports the “Monster Workout, and Layoff of 45 Days” icons. She was a beaten favorite last out in the $100,000 Hilltop Stakes at Pimlico, and the barn looks to get some payback for that nose loss right at the wire. Her Last Race Rating is a 73+, and her Composite Rating is  solid 61. Her Turf Rating is an eye-popping 26.9, and this makes her hard to overlook. After breaking her maiden she was facing graded company. The drop down looked to fit her well, and the numbers signal a big effort is on the way.
