Saturday’s Special picks – June 13

- -

Three tracks on the slate for The Saratoga Special’s handicappers again for this week, 30 more puzzles from Belmont Park, Churchill Downs and Santa Anita Park.

The Grade 1 Ogden Phipps at Belmont Park and Grade 3 Louisville Handicap from Churchill Downs take the stage but there are plenty of other money-making opportunities out there for horseplayers willing to dig deep.

John Shapazian continued to do just that last week and takes a three-win lead into the second Saturday in June. John leads our quartet with a record of 67-for-204, or 32.8 percent.

Tom Law kept up the chase last week but came one win short of Shapazian and continues to hold second with a record of 64-for-204 (31.4 percent).

Charles Bedard (59-for-204, 28.9 percent) and Rob Whitlock (50-for-204, 24.5 percent) round out the quartet and are capable of picking winners at a price. Watch the board with those two.

Here are the picks for Saturday, June 13. Good luck.
