US Horse Racing Tips: Best bets from Saratoga on Saturday

Gufo Saratoga
Today's best bet Gufo runs at Saratoga

Nick Shiambouros had another winner yesterday when his best bet Feel Glorious won at 7.88 BSP at Saratoga. Nick returns to the Spa with two selections from Alabama day...

"This was his fourth win in a row, and has a lot more improvement left in him"

Back Gufo Race 8 at 6.05/1 in the 22:07 at Saratoga

Gufo to upset stablemate

Race 8 22:07 Saratoga - Gufo

I am going to take a chance with Gufo in this fascinating Stakes race on the turf.

This talented colt won the Grade 3 Kent at Delaware Park last month. He swept to the lead deep inside the final furlong, and was back on the bridle at the finish. He only won by half a length, but was value for much more. This was his fourth win in a row, and has a lot more improvement left in him. The main danger and short priced favourite is stablemate Decorated Invader who is on a three race win streak. Trainer Christophe Clement has avoided racing them against each other, but there is $500k on the line so had no choice here. I have backed Gufo at his current price of 6.05/1 on the exchange.

Swiss to crush rivals

Race 9 22:43 Saratoga - Swiss Skydiver

Swiss Skydiver should prove difficult to beat in this historic Grade 1 on the main track.

This smart filly took on the boys in the Blue Grass Stakes at Keenland and finished an excellent second to Art Collector. She held every chance in the straight, but the winner proved the stronger near the finish. This was a brave decision by trainer Ken McPeek, but ultimately came up short.

Now that she is back with her own sex, should prove a tough nut to crack. The gifted Tyler Gaffalione has the riding assignment, and should have her forwardly placed throughout. Anything around her Morning Line of 2.01/1 will do.
