Superfecta Sunday at Saratoga, Round Two

Another Superfecta Sunday swims in.  Today we take a look at a very competitive TURF allowance race at that elegant Summer place, Saratoga.

Saratoga Race 8 {1 1/16 mile~inner TURF~3 year old Up~fillies/mares~Allowance}
An evenly talented group of ten ladies are expected to make the start in this Turf feature.  There is a limited amount of speedsters in this one, but a fine group of those that like to settle mid-pack.  A soundly competitive group will enhance the difficulty of plotting our 10 CENT Superfecta box.  It should be a fun one.

#6 Heart of Destiny (Prado / Baker) may have a slight edge with the highest last out speed number, a two race progression, and four powerful, peaking workouts.  This gal has a win over the Saratoga course and should put in a nice tracking run.

#1 Glamour N Glory (Dominguez / Fawkes) will challenge with the third highest last out speed number, a two race progression, and two modest workouts.  She should close well with an honest pace ahead of her.

#3 Bourbonstreetgirl (Napravnik / Contessa) should surprise with the third highest speed number at the distance, a couple of decent last out speed numbers, a three race progression, and two quality, peaking workouts.  She is our bronze horseshoe selection.
$2 SHOW.

#8 And Why Not (Rosario / Matz) surely will be in the hunt with the fourth highest last out speed number, a four race progression, and two efficient workouts.  She is another that could close swiftly.

10 CENT Superfecta Box ($2.40)

#6 Heart of Destiny  +  #1 Glamour N Glory  +  #3 Bourbonstreetgirl  +  #8 And Why Not.
