Jeremy Plonk's Horse Racing picks for Thursday 7/14

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

Saratoga Race 7 (4:29 p.m. ET/1:29 p.m. PT)

#4 Anglitude (8-1 ML)

Perfect on a fast track, this is the play if things stay dry. Trainer Brad Cox has a fantastic 28% win rate in Saratoga dirt races the past two summers. With the 1-mile chute returning to Saratoga, look for horseplayers to overbet the inside posts early in the meet, thus giving a slight overlay price here. Win-Place bet. Daily Double 4-11 to next pick.

Saratoga Race 8 (5:05 p.m. ET/2:05 p.m. PT)

#11 Wonka (9-2 ML)

Versatile in terms of running style, that should pay dividends from an outside post position draw. She has sustained her momentum throughout each of her three races and should be ideally prepped for the longer, 1 1/8 miles test than most of her rivals. The jockey-trainer combo of Jose Ortiz and Bill Mott is 5-for-12 (42 percent) at Saratoga the past two summers. Win bet. Daily Double 11-9 to top pick Summer Promise in the Race 9 featured Schuylerville Stakes.

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.
