Saratoga Liberty

We open our horse racing weekend with a fine Saratoga race for 3 year old fillies.

Saratoga Race 9 {Statue of Liberty~1 mile~inner TURF~3 year old~fillies~Stakes}
A talented field of ten will line up for this grass feature.  Most of the field appears to be fowardly placed types.  It should be a very good Turf battle.

#1 Why Take a Chance (Castellano / McPeek) looks to have a slight edge with the highest last out speed number, a four race progression, and three robust, peaking workouts.  She does have the tactical speed to get the job done.
$1 WIN / $1 SHOW.

#6 Manero (Lezcano / Serpe) will challenge with a decent couple of last out speed numbers, a two race progression, and three athletic workouts.  She should be with the forward group ready to make a move in the turn.
$1 PLACE / $1 SHOW.

#10 I Bet Toni Knows (Alvarado / Reed) is another that will challenge with the second highest last ouspeed number, a two race progression, and two hearty workouts.  This gal is one of the few that will track and close.
$1 SHOW.

Another Wagering Interest

#4 My Jopia (Dominguez / Schettino) can be expected to be in the mix with the third highest last out speed number off a Turf sprint, a two race progression, and two diligent workouts.  She will join the forwardly placed group fighting hard for position.

10 CENT Superfecta

#1 Why Take a Chance / #6 Manero / #10 I Bet Toni Knows / #4 My Jopia.

Last Superfecta Sunday's (8/5) Results
Saratoga R10.  Alfred G. Vanderbilt--G1.  We completely missed the 10 CENT Superfecta box as not one of our selections made it into the top four.  Superfecta went 5-3-2-8.
Our Bronze Horseshoe selection, Rothko, finished 5th.
Bankroll takes a hit and falls to $7.90.
