Saratoga Stack 7.21.23
A good ride, just a bit unlucky
On Wednesday we benefitted from a bob that went our way to get on the board for the meet with our Two Minute Pick.
Thursday, the coin flip of horse racing and making one pick per day here went the other way.
Chasing the Crown got a really good ride from Manny Franco. Rather than fan out six or seven wide late, he tried to split horses mid-stretch. He got a little squeezed, pushed out, then in by horses, and lost just a smidge of momentum.
Meanwhile Whistper Not got a great ride himself from Tyler Gaffalione, had the clear sailing outside, and was able to out-finish our selection in the final strides.

It’s going to be a wet one at the Spa today. All the turf racing is off, save for the featured Lake George which as of this posting is still on the turf.
Saw Dave Portnoy’s horse Queen Picasso scratched in the feature. Hope we see her at some point this summer in Saratoga.
We’ll focus on Race 8 for our Two Minute Pick - Presented by NYRABets
Interested in how Blazing Sevens runs in the Curlin (Race 4).
Thought Headland made sense off the claim for Linda on the 2nd.
After that I found the card to be slim pickings. I’ll be looking for overlays on MTOs mostly. I’m already getting locked in on a fun Saturday card - and tomorrow is the Haskell!
Saturday marks the return of the MutStack Podcast. We’ll preview the Haskell, Saturday’s late Pick 3 at Saratoga, and talk about the closure of an important racetrack with Jessica Paquette of Parx Racing.
Good luck if you’re playing. Comments are open below so you can let me know who you like today and in tomorrow’s Haskell.
