Ballerina Furlong Friday

Thank goodness it's Friday.  We take a look at a tremendous grade one at the "Spa".

Saratoga Race 9 {Ballerina Stakes~G1~7 furlongs~3 year old Up~fillies/mares~Stakes}
A high caliber group of eleven gals will go to the gate in this annual affair.  There is plenty of speed coupled with forwardly placed types to make the pace sizzle.  Most in this one have had a little bit of a freshening hoping to put in a top effort.  It should be a spectacular sprint.

#5 Book Review (Bejarano / Baffert) should take advantage of the pace set up to close down this field.  She holds the highest last out speed number, a five race progression, and five furious workouts.  This gal should fire well as the favorite.
$1 WIN / $1 SHOW.

#1 Dance to Bristol (X. Perez / Figgins) will challenge with the third highest last out speed number and one strong bullet workout.  She holds the highest speed number at the distance and is 95% in the money in seventeen starts.  This gal is a pure presser and will surely benefit from a speedy pace.
$1 SHOW.

#8 Judy the Beauty (Rosario / Ward) should also contend with a couple of good last out speed number and four superior workouts that include two bullets.  This precious gal enjoys sharing the third highest speed number at this distance.  She has tactical speed to see how the pace develops.
$1 SHOW.

Other Wagering Interests

#6 Starship Truffles (Saez / Wolfson) should be in the hunt with the third highest last out speed number, a three race progression, and three athletic works.  She should stay close tracking the pace.

#10 Fantasy of Flight (C. Velasquez / Nevin) could be in the hunt with a couple of decent last out speed numbers.  She comes to this race exiting a route and has put in three stellar workouts.  She has terrific tactical speed to use to her advantage.
