Horse Racing Weekend Begins at the "Spa"

Going into the Labor Day Holiday we turn to the "Spa" for a good sprint to start off our Horse Racing Weekend.

Saratoga Race 3 {6 1/2 furlongs~3 year-old Up~fillies/mares~Claiming}

A decent field of six will enter the gate in this early on the card race. With the scratch of Evangeline's Hope it becomes a New York bred contest. There is plenty of speed which should make the pace a tad heated. Speed numbers are fairly comparable. It should be a terrific race.

#4 Saluda (J. Ortiz / Nevin) should take advantage of the speed by grinding through the stretch. She holds the highest speed number at this distance, the third highest last out speed number, a two race progression, and one strong workout. This lady has the best in the money record (64%) of the field. She should track and close nicely.
$1 WIN  /  $2 SHOW.

Other Wagering Interests

#5 Stolen Victory (Castellano / Contessa) should challenge with the second highest last speed number at a route, a two race progression, and one solid workout. She will be attempting this distance for the first time running close to the pace seeking to get first jump on the leaders.

#2 Cryptic Comet (L. Saez / Terranova) should contend with the highest last out speed number, a two race progression, and one hearty workout. She loves the Saratoga track and will use her tactical speed to position nicely for a possible win.

#6 Annie Walker (I. Ortiz / Jacobson) could be in the mix with a couple decent last out speed numbers at a higher level of competition. She does hold the second highest speed number at the distance and has put in two superb workouts. This gal should be forwardly placed ready to pounce.
