Editor's note: last summer, Ed Sehon (aka Mr. Ed) called this column "Saratoga on (about) $100 a Day." This year, he's just doing the weekend cards (Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays) but still approaching each day with around $100 in plays as if he was just trying to beat the races on a given day. Here are his plays for Friday as we start the 6th weekend of the meet:

”A losing day at Saratoga beats a good day anywhere else.”

Races 2-4 (1:39 p.m. ET/10:39 a.m. PT)

Mr. Ed is betting a $5 Pick 3

Race 2: 1,7

Race 3: 6

Race 4: 1,4

(cost $20)

Race 3 (2:15 p.m. ET/11:15 a.m. PT)

My BEST BET is #6 Bourbon Calling (3-1 morning line). Six-year-old gelded son of Dialed In gets major-league rider upgrade to meet’s leading jockey Irad Ortiz Jr. Stretch out suits dead closer’s running style. He should also benefit from outer-most post as he answers last call for alcohol at the finish line. Wager: $20 to Win.

(cost $20)

Race 5 (3:21 p.m. ET/12:21 p.m. PT)

Mr. Ed likes a $4 Exacta Box with late-running #5 Perfect Silent Cat (2-1 morning line) over and under #1 Nicholas James (9-2), #6 Top of the Mint (4-1) and #8 Got the Gold (8-1).

(cost $24)

Races 7-10 (4:29 p.m. ET/1:29 p.m. PT)

I like the following $0.50 Pick 4

Race 7: 1,4,5,10

Race 8: 1,3,4,5,7

Race 9: 6,8

Race 10: 3,5,8

(cost $60)

Race 9 (5:39 p.m. ET/2:39 p.m. PT)

Mr. Ed likes a $4 Exacta Box of out-of-towner #8 Judge Judith (9-2 morning line) paired with a trio of logical contenders: #3 Hatari (7/2), #5 Rosemary Potatoes (6-1) and #6 Diva Ready (3-1).

(cost $24)

SUNDAY'S WAGERS: $156

SUNDAY'S CASHED: $177

SUNDAY'S PROFIT: $21

15-DAY TOTAL WAGERS: $1,605

15-DAY CASHED: $919

MEET-TO-DATE LOSS: -$686

FRIDAY'S WAGERS: $148
