Stakes Saturday at the Spa

A beautiful weekend for Stakes races.  We look in on one at the fabulous "Spa".

Saratoga Race 10 {Diana~G1~1 1/8 mile~inner TURF~3 year old Up~fillies/mares~Stakes}
A great group of exceptionally talented gals line up for this annual grade one.  There is sufficient speed to keep the pace hot.  These ladies speed numbers over the surface and at the distance closely resemble one another.  This race is a handicappers dream.

#2 Abaco (J. Ortiz / McGaughey) could be the one that shines with the fourth highest (4-way tie) last out speed number, a three race progression, and four sensational workouts. She is coming off a brief rest so should be fresh.  This daughter of Giant's Causeway should be tracking and closing speedily.
$1 WIN  /  $2 SHOW.

#8 Atterite [FR} (Castellano / C. Brown) should challenge upon her return to the races after a long layoff. She fits in well with these sporting the third highest speed number at the distance.  This daughter of Literato [FR] has put in four excellent workouts.  She should track the pace closely.
$1 PLACE  /  $1 SHOW.

#5 Strathnaver [GB] (J. Velazquez / Motion) will contend with the second highest last out speed number, a four race progression, and three robust workouts.  She close well into a contested pace.  This daughter of Oasis Dream [GB] is highly competitive at this distance.
$1 SHOW.

Another Wagering Interest

#10 Tannery [IRE] (Lezcano / Goldberg) will compete well sharing the fourth highest last out speed number a longer route, holding a two race progression, and two formidable workouts.  She is a daughter of Dylan Thomas [IRE] that will be closing swiftly.
