World class horse racing takes place at Saratoga Race Course in Saratoga Springs, N.Y., and on Saturday the late Pick 4 begins with the Test Stakes at 5:07 p.m. ET and ends with Race 12. Before you make any picks, you NEED to know how racing insider and accomplished horseplayer Bob Weir has handicapped the four-race sequence.
A Saratoga Springs-based racing insider and Beyer Speed Figure maker, Weir is a two-time qualifier for the prestigious National Horseplayers Championship in Las Vegas. He 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.
This year, he has been red-hot in the Triple Crown prep races, hitting the superfecta in the Blue Grass Stakes, the trifecta in the Louisiana Derby and exactas in the Fountain of Youth Stakes and Tampa Bay Derby. He also has hit the 19-1 winner of the Man o' War Stakes, the trifecta in the Pegasus World Cup, the superfecta in the Met Mile and multiple Pick 4s, including May 14's at Belmont for $1,851. Anyone who has followed him is way up.
Now he has handicapped the late Pick 4 at Saratoga for Saturday, made his picks and constructed his tickets.
We can tell you that Weir is high on Matareya, the 2-5 morning-line favorite in the Test, the first leg of the Pick 4. "The rail draw is the only concern, but she has tactical speed to gain position out of this draw," Weir tells SportsLine. Matareya is Weir's top pick in the Test and a single A horse on his Pick 4 tickets.
In addition, Weir is high on a double-digit long shot on Saturday. Weir says this horse has been "definitely working well in the mornings" and could spice up the Pick 4. Weir is including this long shot on his tickets, and so should you. You NEED to see Weir's analysis before making any Pick 4 selections.
