Jeremy Plonk's Horse Racing picks for Thursday 8/11

By Jeremy Plonk  (Xpressbet Editor-in-chief) 

XpressBet editor-in-chief Jeremy Plonk offers his best bets for Thursday.

Saratoga Race No. 10 (6:13 p.m. ET/3:13 p.m. PT)

#1 Twist Just Right (6-1)

The Jorge Abreu barn is known to go off in spurts at Saratoga and is on a strong run now with 3 winners in 4 starts since the start of August. All 3 winners were in the maiden class ranks like this one, who ran her best career race in her only local appearance here last summer. Win bet.

Del Mar No. Race 4 (6:33 p.m. ET/3:33 p.m. PT)

#3 Carson's Legacy (8-1 ML)

Trainer George Papaprodromou has been red-hot since taking over for suspended trainer Richard Baltas. He popped 4 winners from 13 starts last week at Del Mar, including a stakes victory and an $85 upset. This one's workouts since 2 modest Santa Anita tries indicate a potential perk-up like many in the barn of late. Win-Place bet.
