Thursday Horse Racing at the Spa

Another glorious horse racing weekend begins.  Today we take a look at a very nice sprint at beautiful Saratoga.

Saratoga Race 9 {6 1/2 furlongs~3 year olds Up~fillies/mares~Starter Optional Claiming}
Eleven sweet sprinting fillies will line up for this one.  Notice that no mares were up to the challenge.  It is any horses race in this competition.  A little speed mixed with the forwardly placed and sprinkled with trackers make this race a challenging one.

#10 Smokin' Alice (C. Velasquez / Rodriguez) might have a slight edge with the third highest last out speed number, a three race progression, and two solid workouts.  She could stay close to the pace and wheel it in the stretch.
$1 WIN / $1 SHOW.

#7 Bid a Moon (Napravnik / Schosberg) should challenge with the second highest speed number at the distance,  a couple of decent last out speed numbers, and four superb workouts.  She should press the attack and swing into the stretch run.
$1 PLACE / $1 SHOW.

#1 Sly Warrior (Castellano / Maker) could be the speed of the speed with the highest speed number at the distance which resulted in a victory as well as made the fourth highest speed number among this group.  She is holding a two race progression and has put in two modest workouts.  She has the potential wire this field.
$1 SHOW.

Another Wagering Interest

#4 Caviar N Champagne (Ortiz / Englehart) will challenge with the highest last out speed number, a five race progression, and one steady workout.  She can be expected to track the pace and move swiftly in the turn.  There is no doubt, she too could pull off the victory.

10 CENT Superfecta

#10 Smokin' Alice / #7 Bid A Moon / #1 Sly Warrior / #4 Caviar N Champagne.
