The Sword Dancer Invitational (G1) at Saratoga: Our good fortune continued again this weekend, as three of our four Bankroll Plays did the business—and the one race that we lost, we suggested a $320.50 trifecta. Throw in three nice exactas, and it was a pretty great weekend. Hey, when it rains, it pours—so let’s hope it keeps on raining! The weekend got off to a good start in this terrific 1-1/2 mile turf race when our top choice and Bankroll Play, POINT OF ENTRY (7/5), dominated eight other foes while winning by a widening 4-lengths. He paid $4.80/$2.90/$2.30, and our $25 win/place Bankroll Play returned $96.25—but we also suggested a $10 exacta with a few other runners, including second-place finisher AL KHALI (7/1). The $2 exacta paid $29.80, returning $149.00 for our suggested wager. Philip H. Iselin (G3) at Monmouth Park: It’s not often a race runs exactly to form, but such was the case in this year’s running of this 1-1/8 mile main-track event. We had it as a two-horse race, and that’s how it turned out (by a head!) when our top choice and Bankroll Play, SAN PABLO (9/10), keyed an $8.60 exacta with our second choice, TOBY’S CORNER (8/5), who was all out to earn the place. Our suggested $50 exacta returned $215.00. The winner paid $3.80/$2.40/$2.10, and our $25 win/place Bankroll Play returned $77.50. The Alabama (G1) at Saratoga: The bad news is that our top choice and Bankroll Play, GRACE HALL (10/11), ran horribly, finishing a distant fifth. The good news is that our Long Shot Value Play, VIA VILLAGGIO (12/1), who we keyed in third-place in our suggested trifecta, ran third. The race was won by our third choice, QUESTING (GB) (2/1), and our second choice, IN LINGERIE (6/1), ran second. Even though we lost our Bankroll Play, our suggested trifecta using our top-three choices over ALL over VIA VILLAGGIO returned a very nice $320.50 (for $2). The Del Mar Oaks (G1) at Del Mar Thoroughbred Club: This race was a tale of two horses—an even-money favorite and the longest shot on the board at 43/1. Fortunately, we pegged the winner, LADY OF SHAMROCK (evens), as our top choice and Bankroll Play, while we tabbed second-place finisher, STORMY LUCY (43/1), as our Long Shot Value Play. Our suggested $5 exacta of those two returned $285.50, while our $25 win/place Bankroll Play on LADY OF SHAMROCK—who paid $4.00/$3.00/$2.40—returned $87.50. It was a good end to a great week.
