Let the 2 year olds Roll at Saratoga

Our horse racing weekend begins on an appealing Thursday.  We take a look at the youngsters on Turf at the "Spa".

Saratoga Race 10 {Anticipation~G2~1 1/16 mile~TURF~2 year old~Stakes}
A talented field of twelve wonderful youngsters will make the start in this graded Turf battle.  The race comes up well balanced with speedsters, pressers, trackers and closers.  It should be a very exciting race.

#6 Charming Kitten (Castellano / Pletcher) will making his second career start with the fourth highest (tie) last out speed number and two solid workouts.  This son of Kitten's Joy should track the pace and launch a strong effort in the stretch.
$1 WIN / $1 SHOW.

#4 Craving Carats (Rosario / Romans) should be forwardly placed sharing the fourth highest last out speed number, holding a three race progression, and putting in two robust workouts.  Any son of Street Sense usually puts in an excellent effort.
$1 PLACE / $1 SHOW.

#1 Almost An Angel (Desormeaux / Ward) has tranversed the TURF well  and appears ready to take another step forward with the highest last out speed number.  This filly should hold her own against the boys with four superb peaking workouts.  She should be forwardly placed seeking to strike.
$1 SHOW.

Another Wagering Interest

#11 Hightail (Maragh / Lukas) could surprise with the third highest (tie) last out speed number, a three race progression, and three speedy peaking workouts.  This son of mineshaft could dig down deep for a piece of the purse pie.
