Saratoga Race 4 // 2:49 pm ET

#9 Kemba (5-1 ML)

Trainer Ray Handal's horses have been primed early in the Saratoga meet the past 3 years (24%, $1.68 ROI for every $1 bet in July 2018-2020). Front-running speed historically is every effective on the Spa turf course and this horse won wire-to-wire on the local lawn last summer. Win bet. Exacta box 9-3 with late-running Evidence Based.

Saratoga Race 8 // 5:05 pm ET

#1 Kentucky Pharoah (10-1 ML)

Longshot look to horse who caught this eye at Gulfstream Park this winter, but has been inconsistent in developing. Might find this turf sprint distance best to utilize his raw ability. Expect favorites to lock up in an early speed duel, and perhaps set the table for him stalking just behind the first flight. Win bet. Exacta box 1-3 with Golden Pal.
