Starting at 1:05 p.m. ET, we have 10 races at Saratoga on Opening Day of the summer meet. Using numberFire’s projections as a guide, here are some of the best bets to make at FanDuel Racing.

As always, check the program for scratches and changes, and monitor the weather and track conditions.

(I will reference Equibase's Speed Figure in selected races, which tells you how fast a horse has been running in each of its races -- adjusted for track, distances, and conditions).

Race 7 is the Wilton Stakes for 3-year-old fillies going 1-mile. The numberFire data projects Goddess of Fire (3/1) to outduel the favorite Tarabi (5/2) and Favor (7/2) for the win.

Goddess of Fire was runner-up twice in Graded stakes this year before missing badly in the Kentucky Oaks.

Tarabi looks like the most consistent runner and she's faced better with a third place finish in the Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies behind Echo Zulu, and also runner up to that same horse in the Grade 1 Spinaway last fall over this track. Tarabi is 4-for-4 in-the-money.

Gina Romantica (8/1) is one to include according to Top Race Reports with Flavien Prat riding for Chad Brown.

2. Myriskyaffair and Wonka, Race 8

FanDuel Racing Odds: 7/2 and 9/2

Race 8 is an Allowance race for 3-year-old fillies at 1 1/8 miles on the Inner Turf. The numberFire algorithm projects Myriskyaffair (7/2) ahead of
Wonka (9/2).

Myriskyaffair drops from a Grade 2 race after finishing runner-up with a 95 speed figure behind the heavy favorite.

Wonka drops from a Grade 3 race and has run well in all three starts this year with improved speed figures.

Race 9 is the Schuylerville Stakes (G3) for 2-year-old fillies sprinting 6 furlongs. The numberFire data projects Me and My Shadow (7/2) to win over Summer Promise (3/1) and Adora (6/1).

Summer Promise is coming off of an easy wire-to-wire debut win with an 85 speed figure. She's come back with a strong 4 furlong bullet work, best of 97 runners. Summer Promise will be running up front adding another furlong.

Just Cindy (5/2) is a daughter of Triple Crown winner Justify and ridden by Irad Ortiz, Jr. She is a big filly who was super impressive winning on debut, per ECHR and Top Race Reports.

Me and My Shadow was sharp in winning her debut and moves from synthetic to dirt. She's trained by Mark Casse, along with Janis Joplin (12/1).
