Mr. Ed's Saratoga bankroll plays for Sunday 7/17

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. So, for this summer's meet at the Spa, Mr. Ed is saving his bankroll for the higher-quality cards (and horses) on the weekend and is posting his plays for readers on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays throughout the meet. Here are his plays for Sunday to close opening weekend:

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