Jeff Siegel's Horse Racing Picks for Saturday 8/27

By Jeff Siegel  (Xpressbet) 

Xpressbet writer Jeff Siegel offers his top plays for Saturday.

Del Mar Race No. 3 (6 p.m. ET/3 p.m. PT)

#1 Emerald Lake (2-1)

Lightly raced with solid speed figures, a good recent breeze over the course and a cozy inside draw, this daughter of Bluegrass Cat has much in her favor and should make amends today after finishing second in a similar affair as the favorite over the local lawn last month. She switches to Umberto Rispoli and projects to settle into a second flight, stalking position and then have every chance to seal the deal from the quarter pole home. At 2-1 on the morning line, the Peter Miller-trained sophomore filly looks solid in the straight pool and in the various rolling exotics.

Saratoga Race No. 13 (6:52 p.m. ET/3:52 p.m. PT)

#1 Parnac (3-1)

French-bred filly was shuffled back at the start to trail, was fanned extremely wide when commencing her rally into the lane and kept to her task to wind up a willing fourth, beaten less than three lengths in her U.S. debut in July. Freshened and training very well in the interim for Christophe Clement, this 3-year-old won her first two career outings in Germany before being imported, and in this entry-level allowance grass miler from a good inside draw she is guaranteed an ideal, ground-saving trip. With Joel Rosario riding her back, she’s a Win play and rolling exotic single.

A Numbers Game: Be careful betting baseball games right now, if they don’t involve teams still trying to make the playoffs. Teams that have clinched or teams that are completely out of it will be approaching games far differently. View more tips.
