Friday at Saratoga: Mike Dennis picks the late Pick 6, which has a huge Thursday carryover
Saratoga Pick 6 - August 13, 2021
A two day, pick 6 carryover will be the morning coffee talk around Saratoga on Friday. After a crazy Wednesday where winners paid $6.80 (Key Point), $24.80 (Dufresne), $79.00 (Take it Off), $10.20 (Letmeno), $36.40 (Itsakeyper) and $7.90 (Amano).
The main chatter online and on TV from Thursday's action was a speed bias. When multiple sources who are respected agree on such a thing I may buy in. On another note though in preparation for the pick 6 Friday take note winning horses which raced Thursday and what his or her TimeForm US Early number is. Simple stuff to consider, no reason to leave a high TFE # out tomorrow, especially if the number is top spot with the next coming much lower. = get lose, set manageable splits.
Thursday Props Goes to: Ricardo Santana Jr.
Mainly because I liked how the ride on Light in the Sky changed tactically. I understand the short field but the move to lead firing out won race the easily, when other entrants may have been expected to do so. It would have been more cool if my coin was on the $20 winner. Props for making the winning move Ricardo.
Pick 6 Table
If you are reading this bless your soul and tweet @blinkersoff420 on twitter. I will be happy to provide reasoning for horses making their way on my ticket. If you want to interact and tell me who you like then please do. This is for simplicity sake and to not drag on my writing like I love to do. Reach out though and maybe I need to add a horse you see an angle on.
Always check scratches. Track conditions.
