Horse Racing picks for Saratoga race track on Friday, July 29: Maybe Later is worth waiting for

There is plenty of great horse racing across America on Friday, including at Saratoga race track. We have been in fine form with our picks for a long time and after both our 3-star picks won at Saratoga yesterday, we are up +287.86 units with our race selections to our recommended stakes dating back to August 5, 2021. Let’s keep it rolling!

Here are our best bets for today’s action at Saratoga.

4:18 pm ET Saratoga (Race 7) – Artorius 7/2 (2-star play)

Race 7 at Saratoga is the $135,000 Curlin Stakes over a mile and 1/8th on the dirt which features many unexposed colts and I like the chances of the Chad Brown-trained Artorius.

This Juddmonte-owned son of Arrogate finished well when he was 2nd over 6 furlongs in his debut at Keeneland in April before returning to score over a mile at Belmont Park last month. He is an exciting colt who will be suited by this step up in trip.

4:56 pm ET Saratoga (Race 8) – Xy Speed 8/1 (1-star play)

Michael Maker’s Xy Speed is a 9-time winner, 2 of which were in this allowance optional company, and this speedy gelding has every chance of gaining a 10th win in this $120,000 contest over an extended 5 furlongs on the turf.

He has finished off the board in his last 2 starts, but both of those were in stakes company, so if jockey Tyler Gaffalione can get into a prominent position from stall 2 he should go close.

5:32 pm ET Saratoga (Race 9) – On The Hill 9/2 (1-star play)

The penultimate race at Saratoga is an open-looking $70,000 starter allowance over 6 furlongs on the dirt in which a case can be made for many but the gelding in stall 5, On The Hill, could take this one.

He’s a winner over 6 furlongs and comes into this off  after a couple of 2nd-placed efforts in this grade. If he can improve from those, which isn’t out of the question as he’s lightly-raced, then he can have a big say.

6:08 pm ET Saratoga (Race 10) – Maybe Later 2/1 (2-star play)

A field of 16 fillies and mares is set to line up for the finale at Saratoga, which is another $70,000 starter allowance, but this time we are on the turf track over a distance of a mile and 1/16th and Maybe Later should be tough to beat.

This daughter of Not This Time has gone close in a higher grade than this, so if she runs close to her best then she should have a great chance.
