Horse Racing picks for Saratoga race track on Thursday, August 4: If you're gonna crown Alpine Queen, then crown her

Santa Anita Horse Racing on Dirt

There is plenty of great horse racing across America on Thursday, including at Saratoga race track. We have been in fine form with our picks for a long time and we are up +283.36 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.

2:15 pm Saratoga (Race 3) – Played Hard 2/1 (2-star play)

Demonstrated ability at a higher level when finishing on the board in two stakes races late last year including when runner-up in the Grade 3 Comely Stakes over a mile-and-one-eighth at Saratoga. Successful first up this campaign at Churchill Downs and failed by a length to make all in a mile-and-one-sixteenth at the same venue at the end of June. Looks up to registering a victory with Tyler Gaffalione in the saddle for the first time since last October.

2:49 pm Saratoga (Race 4) – Alpine Queen 5/2 (2-star play)

Recorded a win at this level when scoring over a mile at Aqueduct in December last year and has since recorded a number of on the board finishes including when four-and-three-quarter-lengths third over seven furlongs on a muddy Belmont Park track. Joined current trainer Antonio Arriaga following that effort and with the booking of Irad Ortiz taking the eye the filly looks up to delivering a victory here having recorded a solid 50.55 four furlong work here on July 28.

5:05 pm Saratoga (Race 8) – Art Collector 7/5 (2-star play)

Rattled off a hat-trick of stakes wins when taking the Grade 1 Woodward Stakes over a mile-and-one-eighth at Belmont Park at the start of October. Disappointed when only sixth in the Grade 1 Breeders’ Cup Classic at Del Mar subsequently prior to a heavy defeat in the Grade 1 Saudi Cup over a mile-and-one-eighth in Saudi Arabia. Having shown good form in his works recently Bill Mott’s charge is taken to make a winning start to his five-year-old campaign.
