Mr. Ed's Saratoga bankroll plays for Saturday 7/30

By Ed Sehon  ( handicapper) 


Editor's note: last summer, Ed Sehon (aka Mr. Ed) called this column "Saratoga on (about) $100 a Day," but sometimes had trouble finding plays on the mid-week cards, which put a drain on the bankroll. This summer, Mr. Ed is posting his plays for readers on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. Here are his plays for Saturday:

Race 3 (2:10 p.m. ET/11:10 a.m. PT)

Mr. Ed likes #8 Endowed (3-1 morning line). Christophe Clement stretches gelded son of Tonalist out to 1 1/8-mile following sharp Place effort vs. similar at Belmont earlier this month. Irad Ortiz Jr. knows guy. Wager: $5 Win and Place.

(cost $10)

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

Mr. Ed likes #3 Hot Rod Rumble (6-1 morning line). Away since April, Steve Asmussen hires slow-starting Tyler Gaffalione in comebacker for 3-year gelding. It’s time for this trainer-jockey combo to step up to the plate. Wager: $5 Win and Place.

(cost $10)

Race 6 (3:44 p.m. ET/12:44 p.m. PT)

Mr. Ed likes #6 Wicked Groove (6-1 morning line). Sharp Rob Atras ships ultra-consistent (14-5-2-3) filly up to Spa, after losing speed duel in Parx stakes. Good news: In-a-groove Flavien Prat accepts mount. Wager: $5 Win and Place, $2 Exacta Box 1,3,5,6.

(cost $34)

Races 8-11 (4:50 p.m. ET/1:50 p.m. PT)

Mr. Ed likes $1 Pick 4

Race 8: 4

Race 9: ALL

Race 10: 3,10,12

Race 11: 3,7,9,11

(cost $60)

Race No. 9 (5:37 p.m. ET/2:37 p.m. PT)

Mr. Ed likes #5 Zandon (2-1 morning line). No need to get off the horse I rode in on. My Kentucky Derby pick, where he finished a game third, Brown and Prat now shift their focus to the Travers and the Breeders’ Cup Classic. Let’s go Zandon! Wager: $10 to Win.

(cost $10)

Race 10 (6:13 p.m. ET/3:13 p.m. PT)

Mr. Ed likes #12 Capensis (2-1 morning line). Late-bloomer might just be best sophomore in powerhouse Todd Pletcher barn. Repeat of maiden voyage by $2 million son of Tapit could well propel him into big stakes picture this Fall. Jose Ortiz retains mount for smooth ride from outermost post. Wager: $5 Win and Place.

(cost $10)
