XpressBet editor-in-chief Jeremy Plonk offers his best bets for Thursday.
Saratoga Race No. 2 (1:39 p.m. ET/10:39 a.m. PT)
#1 Grumps Little Tots (7-2 ML)
Best late runner in a field loaded with early speed, look for strong-finishing jockey Joel Rosario to save all the ground early from the rail. Owns the only local Saratoga victory in the field. Win bet.
Saratoga Race No. 4 (2:49 p.m. ET/11:49 a.m. PT)
#5 V Mart (6-1 ML)
Maiden race restricted to those who sold for $50,000 or less and this $45,000 purchase pushes those limits. Working fast at Monmouth behind the scenes for debut and notable owner Victorias Ranch (former major league slugger Victor Martinez) has popped with some surprises in money spots in recent years. That they show up at Saratoga is significant. Win-Place bet.
