Jeff Siegel's Horse Racing Picks for Friday 8/12

By Jeff Siegel  (Xpressbet) 

Xpressbet writer Jeff Siegel offers his top plays for Friday.

Saratoga Race No. 7 (4:29 p.m. ET/1:29 p.m. PT)

#3 Gal in a Rush (4-1)

Returning to the entry-level allowance ranks after finishing a willing second in the Alywow Stake sprinting at Woodbine last month, this talented sophomore finally gets a chance around two turns for the first time in her career and should make the most of the opportunity. From a nice inside draw and back with the barn’s “go-to” rider Joel Rosario, she should have every chance to settle in the second flight and then produce a winning late kick. Her morning line of 4-1 seems quite fair.

Del Mar Race No. 1 (7 p.m. ET/4 p.m. PT)

#6 Warren’s Paradice (5-2)

Didn’t receive any action (23-1) in her debut when sprinting on dirt from the rail but actually showed some late spark when closing with interest to be fourth against similar maiden special weight state-bred competition. But what was even more significant was the strong gallop out by the daughter of Clubhouse Ride, who seems quite likely to improve with the stretch out in trip and the switch to grass. She is listed as the second choice at 5-2 on the morning line and should be a reasonable gamble at or near that price.
