Key Bets and Races for Saturday, August 27 – Including the All-Stakes Pick 4
King's Bishop Stakes - Race #8 at Saratoga – Approximate Post Time 3:35 PM ET
We kicked off last week's Key Races blog with a $26 winner and although not likely offering that kind of value Summer Revolution offers a lot of reward for the risk on win bets, and to start the pick 4, opening at 6/1. Most impressive winning both starts to date, both at this 7 furlong trip, Summer Revolution earned a 112 Equibase Figure here at Saratoga three weeks ago, the 2nd best last race figure in the field and BETTER THAN what Fish Trappe Road (110) earned winning the Dwyer, Mind You Biscuits (100) earned winning the Amsterdam, Tom's Ready (110) earned winning the Woody Stephens or Rated R Superstar (109) earned winning the Carry Back. Considering he's only run twice, Summer Revolution has more improving to do and picks up the services of North American leading jockey Javier Castellano to boot. Fish Trappe Road is working exceptionally well and has run three "A" races in a row, two at this trip, so must be respected. Economic Model (2nd to Fish Trappe Road in the Dwyer) and Noholdingback Bear (8 for 9 first or second in his career) have a high probability to be part of the exacta and trifecta.
Bet Summer Revolution to win at odds of2 to 1 or more. Consider a second, smaller win bet on Fish Trappe Road (who opens at 8 to 1) at odds of 3 to 1 or more.
