Jeremy Plonk's Horse Racing picks for Thursday 8/4

By Jeremy Plonk  (Xpressbet Editor-in-chief) 

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

Saratoga Race No. 7 (4:29 p.m. ET/1:29 p.m. PT)

#3 Spicy Marg (7-2 ML)

Very fast filly catches a turf sprint field with surprisingly little early pace pressure. Perfectly drawn in post 3 to pop and hug the inside throughout with no early burners to her inside. Catch her if you can. Win bet.

Saratoga Race No. 9 (5:39 p.m. ET/2:39 p.m. PT)

#1 Emiraaty (6-1 ML)

Saratoga turf specialist has run his best races over this course for top grass connections of Chad Brown and Flavien Prat. Troubled trip last time in first start of 2022 and should be primed for the return to the Spa. Win bet.
