Horse Racing Weekend begins at Saratoga

We jump into the Horse Racing Weekend with a fine stakes race at the "Spa".

Saratoga Race 9 {Evan Shipman Stakes~1 1/8 mile~3 year old Up~NY~Stakes}
A great group of eight will go to the gate.  There is enough speed in this one to keep things rolling quickly.  The speed numbers look fairly close.  It should be a superb race.

#8 Big Business (C. Velasquez / Jacobson) looks to stretch out with the highest last out speed number, a three race progression, and three sharpening workouts. He should use his tactical speed to secure a winning run.
$2 SHOW.

#1 Fox Rules (Rodriguez / Ferraro) comes off three wins in a row with the second highest (3-way tie) last out speed number and one efficient workout.  This guy could be forwardly placed ready to pounce in the stretch.
$2 SHOW.

Other Wagering Interests

#4 Sailmate (Alvarado / Kimmel) should challenge with the third highest last out speed number and two athletic workouts. He should be closing swiftly into a speedy pace.  This lad also shares the second highest speed number at the distance.

#6 Escapefromreality (Castellano / Schettino) should contend sharing the second highest last out speed number, a four race progression, and two robust workouts.  He should be forwardly placed positioned well.

10 CENT Superfecta

#8 Big Business  /  #1 Fox Rules  /  #4 Sailmate  /  #6 Escapefromreality.
