There is plenty of great horse racing action to look forward to across America on Monday, including at Saratoga race track. We are in fine form with our picks; we have hit 47 winners in our last 103 races, profiting 66.7 units during this hot stretch. Let’s keep it rolling! Here are 3 runners whom we think look to be a class above the opposition in their respective races. It’s time to dive in and take a look at some potentially lucrative plays.

3:54 pm Saratoga (Race 7) – Don’t Wait Up 5/2

A $200,000 purchase at the two-year-old sales at Ocala in the spring the selection made a highly promising start to his career when finishing a nose second to a fellow newcomer in a six furlong maiden special weight at this track last month. Gets the same course and distance here and is taken to get off the mark at the second time of asking having delivered a 48.12 four furlong breeze on the dirt training track here recently.

4:29 pm Saratoga (Race 8) – Consumer Spending 5/2

Out of a dual winner he raced from off the pace when finishing runner-up, beaten one-and-a-half-lengths in a maiden special weight over a mile-and-one-sixteenth on the turf course here just under a month ago. Finished strongly on that occasion and given he is likely to have improved for that experience the son of More Than Ready can take a step forward to break his maiden having drawn post position two with Manny Franco booked to ride for trainer Chad Brown.

5:38 pm Saratoga (Race 10) – Wit 7/5

An expensive $575,000 purchase at the yearling sales last September the selection made the perfect start to his career when winning by six lengths in a maiden special weight over five-and-one-half-furlongs at Belmont Park in early June. Maintained his unbeaten record upped to six furlongs in the Grade 3 Sanford Stakes here the following month having drawn eight clear of his rivals that day he can complete a hat-trick with the step up in trip looking likely to suit.
