Mr. Ed's Saratoga bankroll plays for Sunday 8/14

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 Sunday as we wrap up the 5th weekend of the meet:

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


Race 1: 1,4

Race 2: 1,5,6,9

(cost $16)

Races 2-5 (1:39 p.m. ET/10:39 a.m. PT)

Mr. Ed likes $0.50 Pick 4

Race 2: 1,5,6,9

Race 3: 1,4,5

Race 4: 2,7,8

Race 5: 3,5,7

(cost $54)

Race No. 6 (3:55 p.m. ET/12:55 p.m. PT)

I like a trio: #6 Twin Mischief (5-1 morning line), #8 Chocolate Gelato (3-1) and #10 Firing Bullets (4-1). Wager $4 Exacta Box.

(cost $24)

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

Mr. Ed likes #6 Out of Sight (4-1 morning line). Ultra consistent son of Not This Time gets the riding services of leading jockey Irad Ortiz Jr., replacing his brother Jose, who is sitting race out. Popular conditioner David Donk having an excellent meet. Extra ground on turf only helps running style. Wager $10 to Win and $2 Exacta Box of 6 with 3,4,8.

(cost $22)

The Lombardi Line: The Chiefs have FOUR rookie DBs with Trent McDuffie, Joshua Williams, Jaylen Watson, and Bryan Cook. If the Chiefs D focuses on pass rush and leaves the DBs to play man-to-man, the Eagles' pass catchers have the advantage. View more tips.
