Saratoga Midsummer Derby 2016


147th edition of the Travers Stakes not only has the Saratoga Midsummer Derby but a strong card full of races for 2016.  Ah we made it to another weekend to potential racing profit here at APEX Horse Betting.  New York at the end of August has some of the best action and most consistent conditions in the sport.  Plenty of the best to rail, watch, wager, and win this Saturday.  Let us get down to the business of arming our bankrolls for action this 27th.

Saratoga Midsummer Derby 2016 : $1.25 Million Travers Stakes

A loaded field as you will see outside the three legs of the Triple Crown.  The whose who of horses lined up for your wagering interests.

  • Gun Runner third at Kentucky Derby
  • Exaggerator second in the same race.
  • Belmont’s first and seconds in Creator and Destin

At 3-1 even the favorite for this one has plenty of pop not only in win wagers but exactas and other exotics.  Exaggerator is the chosen horse as of press time of this article.  For a real long shot with actual hope of cashing, look at My Man Sam.  His second in the Grade 1 Blue Grass represents both real growth for this horse and momentum going in at odds that are highly inflated and give great value if you can afford to bet such a longshot.

Fillies and Mares Elite Field : $750K Grade One Personal Ensign

The other race on the card of great interest only has five horses.  Nine furlongs is the distance which gives all of them a chance of cashing.  Four of the entrants have a Grade 1 win while the other has a second to its credit.  Curalina crushed the field in her last start and has the oddsmakers attention at 9-5.  Paid Up Subscriber is what we will be investing in.  On a side note is that none of these five are considered frontrunners so from a strategy standpoint, who will take the lead and how she handles it will be fascinating to watch.

Great day of racing with the first post time on the 27th at 11:35 AM.  Americas Bookies’ Racebook is the ideal destination for ease of use to get these and other bets in on Saturday.  Venues large and small all over the world at AB.  Good fortune tomorrow and we will see you again here at APEX Horse Betting.
