Paulie's Picks, Saratoga, 8/7/10



Superfecta Chan and myself are making our annual pilgrimage to the legendary Saratoga Race Course tomorrow. Hooray!

The feature is the G1 Whitney Handicap, and Quality Road looks like a looming monster - trainer Todd Pletcher has turned him into robo-horse this year. Check him out in the video above crushing the Met Mile at Belmont on Memorial Day and booking an eye-popping Beyer speed figure of 112 in the process. I'll be using him as a single in the late Pick 4, and if I'm feeling good and happy, I'll build a Pick 6 around him as well. Yippee!
