THURSDAY RECAP: Bombs away as 10 races produced seven double-digit winners, two of which were ridden by back-bencher Dylan Davis in Races Nos. 1 & 9 … In addition to Davis, fellow rider Jose Ortiz and leading trainers Michael Maker and Chad Brown each had two scores … The day’s No. 3 feature race, the Saratoga Dew, was captured by #1 Dancing Kiki ($16), winning by 4 1/2 lengths in a wire-to-wire romp. … Mr. Ed cashed a $58 Exacta ticket in Race No. 2 … The $0.50 Late Pick 5 paid $161,871 … The average Win ticket returned $23.30 … Now, for today’s VSiN exclusive Friday-the-13th (are you feeling lucky?) selections from Mr. Ed …



EXACTA EXTRA (Race No. 2, 1:41 p.m. ET/10:41 a.m. PT)

Leading trainer Michael Maker picks up services of Irad Ortiz Jr. for Midwest shipper #1 Stanford (8-1 morning line); adds blinkers, draws innermost post. Probable chalk #2 Price Talk (2-1), closer drops in for Jorge Abreu. Has win over track. Look for him late. Top jock Luis Saez rides #5 Summer to Remember (5-2) for Todd Pletcher. Rested, ready. Wager: $5 Exacta Box of 1,2 & 5. ($30)


BEST BET (Race No. 4, 2:49 p.m. ET/11:49 a.m. PT)

Under-appreciated Jorge Abreu, trainer of expensive colt #1 Supply and Demand (4-1), is my go-to conditioner today. Lots to like: Big class drop, draws inside, going from turf to dirt, shortens up and attracts meet’s second leading rider, Jose Ortiz. Wager: $20 to Win, $10 to Place on 1. ($30)


DAILY DOUBLE (Race No. 4, 2:49 p.m. ET/11:49 a.m. PT)

Parlay #1 Supply and Demand in first leg with #4 Bubble Rock (8-1) in second leg. Wager: $4 on Daily Double of 1 & 4. ($4)


PRICE PLAY (Race No. 5, 3:21 p.m. ET/12:21 p.m. PT)

Trainer of the year Brad Cox debuts #4 Bubble Rock (8-1 morning line), after several speedy works, in classic $100,000 Spa maidens test. Hungry Irad Ortiz Jr. leaps aboard More Than Ready filly for turf sprint. She’s ready to burst Mr. Ed’s losing bubble. Wager: $10 to Win & Place on 4. ($20)


LATE PICK 4 (Races Nos. 7-10, 4:29 p.m. ET/1:29 p.m. PT)

Race 7: 6,9,11

Race 8: 3,6,9

Race 9: 4,5

Race 10: 1,3,4,9 ($36)




SATURDAY AT THE SPA: In addition to reporting on the feature Test Stakes for 2-year-olds and the Fourstardave Handicap, Mr. Ed will offer personal insights from his before-dawn visit to the backstretch and the Oklahoma Training Track.
