Jeff Siegel's Best Bets: Manly picks
back to news
Xpressbet analyst Jeff Siegel offers Best Bets Thursday-Saturday. On Friday, Veteran ran out and Alice Marble was a scratch.
Saratoga - Race 6 - Post Time: 3:02 ET.
6-Mystical Man (8-1)
This debuting Mucho Macho Man colt lands Joel Rosario. Since arriving at Saratoga, he has worked well without being asked, typical of the Albert Stall, Jr., barn. A $155,000 purchase at the OBS March sale where he was impressive previewing in :21 2/5 over the all-weather surface, he is a leggy colt with plenty of scope and a long stride, and acts like he’ll very much enjoy turf and a distance of ground. He’s at 8-1 on the morning line and, at that price, offers a chance at a good gamble.
Del Mar – Race 10 – Post Time: 6:40 PT
4 – Superman Shaq (7/2)
Half-brother to Breeders’ Cup Distaff G1 winner Monomoy Girl, he doesn’t show any fancy workout times in his past performance chart, but make no mistake about it, this colt is a smoker. Breezed a quarter mile in 20 3/5 seconds at the OBS April Sale and then brought $550,000 at auction before being sent West to trainer Peter Miller. A powerful colt by Shackleford, he is fit, fast, and ready for this six furlong maiden special weight sprint for 2-year-olds. At 7/2 on the morning line, he presents considerable wagering value at that price if you can get it.
