100 (True) - Saturday Horse Racing Bets @ Multiple Sportsbook

Saratoga Race 3 (Post time: 2:18 p.m. ET)

#5 K. K. ICHIKAWA (+355) – 5.0* rating

K. K. ICHIKAWA makes his second career start, but his first with Lasix. He was a solid third on debut despite a five-wide trip against similar foes. This play is for turf only.

Saratoga Race 10 (Post time: 6:18 p.m. ET)

#8 THREE TECHNIQUE (+600) – 4.0* rating

THREE TECHNIQUE could improve off a freshening while cutting back in distance in the Grade I H. Allen Jerkens. A combination of wet tracks and longer races may have led to regression for THREE TECHNIQUE over the winter. He should get a fast track at Saratoga on Saturday and is a perfect 2-for-2 going seven panels. It’s also worth noting that he broke his maiden here.

Del Mar Race 5 (Post time: 7 p.m. ET)

#5 POLAR WIND (+580) – 4.0* rating

POLAR WIND could get overlooked in the betting with two former Triple Crown contenders in this race in NOLO CONTESTO and TIZAMAGICIAN, both of whom have demonstrated hanging tendencies. He ran a solid winning race on Opening Day here.

Saratoga Race 12 (Post time: 7:22 p.m. ET)

#7 DALIKA (+180) – 4.0* rating

DALIKA was installed as the 3-1 morning-line favorite in the Caress Stakes despite losing to #2 I’LLHANDALTHECASH in the License Fee Stakes down at Belmont last time out. However, the latter had the far easier trip that day. DALIKA has showed improved closing kick since cutting back to a sprint two starts ago – an easy allowance win at Churchill. She drilled a bullet going into this, a noticeable improvement over her typically pedestrian works. High-percentage connections in trainer Al Stall and jockey Joel Rosario will team up on DALIKA once more. This play is for turf only.

Del Mar Race 10 (Post time: 9:30 p.m. ET)

#9 COLLUSION ILLUSION (+190) – 6.0* rating

COLLUSION ILLUSION is a perfect 4-for-4 around one turn, including victories in the Grade II Best Pal over this course and the Grade III Laz Barrera at Santa Anita. He also shows a bullet work for this start and retains Flavien Prat – lots to like about this one in the Grade I Bing Crosby.

Del Mar Race 11 (Post time: 10 p.m. ET)

#9 ON MARS (+160) – 5.0* rating

*Added play, turf only*

What does ‘Star Rating’ mean?
Star Rating is the number of units the handicapper is risking on the bet. Therefore, if the Star Rating is 7.0, it is a 7-unit pick. On plus odds picks, the handicapper is risking their Star Rating unit amount. On negative odds picks, the handicapper is betting enough to win their Star Rating unit amount.
We are constantly evaluating online sportsbooks and line feeds to ensure accuracy with our Expert picks. We typically have between 5-10 legal and reputable sportsbooks for our handicappers to select lines from. They are required to select the current line from these featured books so authenticity can always be confirmed – no stale lines!
