Jeremy Plonk's Horse Racing picks for Sunday 7/17

Xpressbet editor-in-chief Jeremy Plonk offers his top plays for Sunday.

Saratoga Race No. 1 (1:05 p.m. ET/10:05 a.m. PT)

#9 Pete N Billy (10-1 ML)

Todd Pletcher's runners are off to a slower than usual start at Saratoga and he's got the likely favorite in the opening race. That could produce upset odds worth pursuing elsewhere. Giving the nod to debut runner Pete N Billy off solid workouts for a Bill Mott barn that's had three top-2 finishes from his first 5 runners at the meet. Like that he lures aggressive jockey Luis Saez here. Win-Place bet.

Saratoga Race No. 4 (2:49 p.m. ET/11:49 a.m. PT)

#3 Indimaaj (8-1 ML)

Trainer Robertino Diodoro's horses have excelled in Saratoga's rare, 2-turn races at 1 1/8 miles on dirt over the past few years. They are 17-4-4-1 since 2019 with a strong $1.80 ROI for every $1 bet. Indimaaj should show early speed and make the rail with little pace inside of him. Win-Place bet.

The Greg Peterson Experience: Doing research during the week and timing the market for FCS football games accordingly can pay off big time. FCS games typically do not receive a betting line until the day of the game, so hitting openers on game lead to tremendous closing line value and large edges.  View more tips.
