Races of the Week
Last week, Sailor's Cap finished third in the Virginia Derby, paying $2.20 to show. Lava Man finished sixth in the Eddie Read Handicap. The Godolphin entry of Music Note and Little Belle finished first and second in the Coaching Club American Oaks. J'espere upset Pyrite Marci in the Queen City Oaks. So far this year, a flat $2 win bet on my selections has yielded a net profit of $14.10 on total wagers of $108.
Today, the Daily Racing Form's races of the week are the Whitney Handicap and the Go For Wand Handicap at Saratoga.
In the Whitney, I'll bet AP Arrow. There's a lot of early speed in the Whitney field, and A.P. Arrow can come from off the pace. Equibase provides free past performances.
In the Go For Wand, I don't see how anyone can beat the Stronach Stables entry of Ginger Punch and Spring Waltz, but they'll probably go off at too short a price to be worth a a bet. The Form provides free past performances.
