Xpressbet analyst Jeff Siegel offers Best Bets Thursday-Saturday. On Friday, Clear Vision scratched and Raymundos Secret won ($3.60).

Saratoga Race 2 - Post Time: 1:44 ET

5 - Polinesia (5/2)

Debuting American Pharoah colt has been highly impressive in two recent turf drills over the Saratoga training track, so it’s not surprising that he begins his career on the lawn. An $800,000 yearling purchase at Saratoga last year, the Chad Brown trained colt appears to have plenty of natural speed so it wouldn’t be surprising to see him on the lead from the get-go. From a barn that clicks at 21% with debut runners, he’ll offer plenty of wagering value at or near his morning line of 5/2 if you can get it.

Del Mar Race 4 – Post Time: 3:40 PT

3 – Negotiator (8-1)

He’s stepping way up in class after beating a bottom-rung maiden claiming field over this track and distance last month but was visually quite pleasing in doing so while giving strong indication that the Gary Mandella-trained gelding has found a home on dirt. Today he’ll face a field with plenty of early speed that should set things up nicely for his late kick, so while he’ll obviously need to step forward the son of Awesome Again represents an intriguing long shot gamble at or near his morning line of 8-1.
