Mr. Ed's Saratoga bankroll plays for Sunday 8/28

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 he wraps up Week 7 of 8:

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

Mr. Ed likes a $2 Daily Double

Race 1: 2,7,10

Race 2: 1,3,4

(cost $18)

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

Here’s my lone $0.50 Pick 4

Race 2: 1,3,4

Race 3: 1,3,4,6

Race 4: 2,5

Race 5: 1,4,9

(cost $36)

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

Mr. Ed likes #4 High Class (4-1 morning line). The Asmussen barn continues to send out expensive, talented youngsters — and that’s no lie. If this gal can stretch out the early-foot move she displayed in her debut, she’ll be tough here. Tyler Gaffalione retains mount. Wager: $10 to Win and Place.

(cost $20)

Races 7-9 (4:29 p.m. ET/1:29 p.m. PT)

I like the following $1 Pick 3:

Race 7: 1,2,3

Race 8: 1,4,7

Race 9: 1,2,5

(cost $27)

Race No. 10 (6:13 p.m. ET/3:13 p.m. PT)

To conclude the Sunday card, Mr. Ed likes a bombs-away, four-way $1 Exacta and Trifecta Boxes of #2 Rocket’s Red Glare (7-2 morning line) for Linda Rice-Irad Ortiz Jr. squad; #5 Be There (12-1) for the Nick Zito barn, which is poised to explode; #8 Lupo’s Legacy (12-1) for Gen. Jeremiah Englehart; and #9 Upper Level (8-1) for Lt. Jimmy Jerkens and Pvt. Tyler Gaffalione. Let the bombing begin.

(cost $36)
