Furlong Friday at the "Spa"

Thank goodness it is Furlong Friday.

Saratoga Race 2 {6 1/2 furlong~3 year-old Up~Maiden Claiming}

An intriguing group of nine will go to the dirt in this Maiden Claiming race. There may be only one with some giddy-up in this field with the others tracking his lead. Speed numbers appear to be fairly close. This race could be a Superfecta players dream as any one of these has the potential to finish in the money.

#7 Magical Connection (Bridgmohan / Stall) looks to be improving. He holds the fourth highest (3-way tie) last out speed number, a two race progression, and one sound workout. This lad should be tracking the pace closely ready to strike in the stretch.
$1 WIN  /  $2 SHOW.

#8 Powerofone (I Rodriguez / Sheppard) is the most interesting runner in the field. After an initial career of eighteen races over the hurdles, he now hits the flats as a maiden. His last race was a hurdle race of over two miles and now breaks into a sprint. He has put in three superb workouts in preparation. His connections must have seen something to change his career course.
$1 SHOW.

Other Wagering Interests

#2 Exposed (Carmouche / Lawrence) is moving in the proper direction with the second highest last out speed number, a three race progression, and one excellent workout. He is another that will be tracking the pace while stretching out an additional 110 yards.

#5 Noble Hustle (Franco / A. Dutrow) should be the favorite with the highest last out speed number at a route, a five race progression, and three hearty workouts. He also holds the highest speed number at the distance. This lad should show speed, but has a versatile running style to stay close to whatever pace develops.

10 CENT Superfecta

#7 Magical Connection  /  #8 Powerofone  /  #2 Exposed  /  #5 Noble Hustle.
