Mr. Ed's Saratoga bankroll plays for Saturday 8/13

By Ed Sehon  ( handicapper) 


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 Saturday:

Races 1-2 (1:05 p.m. ET/10:05 a.m. PT)


Race 1: 2,7

Race 2: 1,3

(cost $16)

Race 6 (3:55 p.m. ET/12:55 p.m. PT)

I like #3 Neuro (5-2 morning line). What do handicapper Mr. Ed and trainer Bobby Ribaudo have in common? Both have recently gone from steak and champagne to chipped beef on toast with spring water. While Bobby’s had four of five Spa entries in the money, he’s only had one winner in 2022. Both he and Mr. Ed are long overdue for a meaningful score. I’ll take the trainer’s 5-year-old son of Freud to get the job done with Javier Castellano aboard. Wager: $20 to Win; $2 Exacta Box of 3,5,7 and $5 Daily Double of 3 with 9 in Race 7.

(cost $37)

Race 7 (4:29 p.m. ET/1:29 p.m. PT)

Mr. Ed likes the aforementioned #9 Black Rain (3-1 morning line). Powerful Todd Pletcher-Irad Ortiz Jr. combo looks to make fast worker a first-out winner — come rain or come shine. Wager: $20 to Win.

(cost $20)

Race 8 (5:03 p.m. ET/2:03 p.m. PT)

I like a four-horse Exacta Box of #1 Portfolio Company (2-1 morning line), #3 Overbore (15-1), #4 Capone (20-1) and #11 Daunt (6-1). Wager: $2 Exacta Box.

(cost $24)

Races 8-10 (5:03 p.m. ET/2:03 p.m. PT)

Mr. Ed likes a $1 Pick 3

Race 8: 1,3,4,11

Race 9: 1,3,4,7

Race 10: 1,3,4

(cost $48)
