Superfecta Sunday at Saratoga, Round 3

Another Superfecta Sunday sneaks upon us.  Today we look at a challenging Turf battle at the "Spa".

Saratoga Race 9 {Saranac~G3~1 1/8 mile~inner TURF~3 year old~Stakes}
A great match-up of ten significant runners.  There is plenty of speed in this one which should allow the favorite, Lucky Chappy [IRE], to have an enjoyable closing run.  This relatively evenly matched field should provide us with a decent challenge to putting together a winning 10 CENT Superfecta box ticket.  Let's give it a whirl.

#1 Lucky Chappy [IRE] (A. Garcia / Motion) should be the post time favorite with the highest last out speed number at a longer turf route, a two race progression and three workman like workouts.  He should have the proper pace set-up to launch his smashing kick.

#6 Quick Wit (Maragh / Romans) will give chase with the second highest (tie) last out speed number, a five race progression, and one efficient workout.  He will be tracking and closing the forwardly placed horde.  He is our Bronze horseshoe selection this week.
$2 SHOW.

#5 Excaper (Wilson / Black) should be in the mix with the third highest last out speed number, a two race progression, and three superb workouts.  This classy son of Exchange Rate should be able to press the pace and have first strike capabilities in the stretch.

#8 Set the Sail (Leparoux / B. Brown) could surprise sharing the second highest last out speed number, working a four race progression, and putting in three nimble, peaking workouts.  He could sit mid-pack ready to make his move in the final turn.

10 CENT Superfecta Box ($2.40)

#1 Lucky Chappy [IRE]  +  #6 Quick Wit  +  #5 Excaper  +  #8 Set the Sail.
