Saratoga Superfecta Sunday

Superfecta Sunday, already. Once again our horse racing weekend seems to have gone faster than a group of speedsters going twenty-one and change through the first quarter. Today we take a look at a terrific Turf race at the "Spa".

Saratoga Race 9 {1 1/8 mile~inner TURF~3 year-old Up~Allowance}

A diligent group of eight will head to the green in this competitive Turf feature. There is more than enough speed signed on to keep a rolling pace. Speed figs are very close making this one quite the skirmish. Our task is to interlace a winning 10 CENT Superfecta box ticket.

#3 Team Colors (Castellano / Jerkens) may be the beneficiary of a hot pace as he closes in the stretch. He holds the second highest last out speed number at a longer Turf route, a two race progression, and three strong peaking workouts. This lad should improve in his second North American start. He is our Bronze Horseshoe selection.
$2 SHOW.

#6 Elmutahid (J. Ortiz / McLaughlin) should challenge with his tactical speed. He holds the highest (tie) last out speed number at a longer Turf route, a three race progression, and two hearty workouts. He moves up in class for this race.

#7 Macagone (Lezcano / Nihei) should contend with the highest speed number at the distance, the third highest (3-way tie) speed number at a longer route, and one superb workout. This guy should contend for leadership on the front end.

#4 Cuppa Joe (I. Ortiz / Esler) will enjoin the battle with second highest last out speed number, a two race progression, and one solid workout. He should be forwardly placed ready to hustle into the stretch. This guy will be stretching out for this race.
