The Brian Lynch-trained Classic Causeway is the 3-1 morning-line favorite in the Sam F. Davis Stakes odds. The Saffie Joseph Jr.-trained Make It Big is the 9-2 second choice Sam F. Davis Stakes field, while the Dale Romans-trained Howling Time is the 5-1 third choice. Post time for the $250,000 Sam F. Davis is 4:54 p.m. ET.
Before you make any Sam F. Davis Stakes 2022 picks or bets, you NEED to see the latest picks from racing insider and Beyer Speed Figure maker Bob Weir.
A Saratoga Springs-based racing insider and Beyer Speed Figure maker, Weir has constructed his wagers in his analysis below. A two-time qualifier for the prestigious National Horseplayers Championship in Las Vegas, Weir has produced multiple five-figure days at the track over the years, including a $60,000 Pick 6 at Del Mar in 2014. Last year, he was on fire. He hit the exacta in the Sam F. Davis Stakes, Tampa Bay Derby and Peter Pan Stakes, the trifecta in the Risen Star Stakes, Blue Grass Stakes and Pennsylvania Derby and the superfecta in the Belmont Stakes, with the Tampa Bay score returning $1,414. Those were just some of his scores in 2021.
Now, Weir has handicapped the Sam F. Davis Stakes 2022 field, made his picks and constructed his bets.
One surprise: Weir is high on Kitten Mischief, even though he is a 12-1 long shot. "He has a lot to prove, but I suspect he will appreciate the two turns," Weir tells SportsLine. Weir will be using Kitten Mischief in his trifecta wagers.
Weir's top pick is a horse who is coming off "two pretty good efforts." He also is high on another double-digit long shot who "should have every opportunity to run late." Weir is including these horses in his 2022 Sam F. Davis Stakes bets, and so should you. You ABSOLUTELY need to see his picks before locking in any of your own.
