Fantastic Friday at Saratoga

For our Friday horse racing we take a look at a marvelous stakes race at beautiful Saratoga.

Saratoga Race 8 {Curlin~1 1/8 mile~3 year old~Stakes}
A great field of eight will go to the gate.  Some decent, but controlled speed will make this one very interesting.  Many more improving horses will make it exciting.

#3 Street Life (Lezcano / C. Brown) looks like much the best hoping to catch a lively pace.  He holds the second highest last out speed number off a longer route and has put in four superior workouts.  This son of Street Sense will be closing fast like his daddy use to.
$1 WIN / $2 SHOW.

#5 Easter Gift (Castellano / Zito) is a much improving colt with the highest last out speed number, a three race progression, and three robust workouts.  He has enough tactical speed to stay reasonably close and get first jump on the field.
$1 PLACE / $1 SHOW.

#7 Love To Run (Alvarado / Kimmel) is another nicely improving colt with the fourth highest last out speed number, a three race progression, and one stout workout.  He should be forwardly placed ready to run.
$1 SHOW.

Another Wagering Interest

#1 Politically Correct (Rosario / Ward) should be on the front end attempting to control the pace to his advantage.  He holds the second highest last out speed number, a two race progression, and two superb workouts.  This guy has the capabiltiy to win it.

10 CENT Superfecta
