Stakes Saturday in New York

We look in on "The Spa"  for a fantastic graded stakes race. Hard to believe it is closing weekend as the unofficial end of summer is here.

Saratoga Race 10 {Woodward~G1~1 1/8 mile~3 year-old Up~Graded Stakes}

A fine field of nine will go to the gate in this featured race. There is enough speed to keep an honest pace on the front end. There are four millionaires competing in this one. All expected to be in the thick of it. Speed numbers are very close for half the field with the others looking for improvement. This race should be one of the best on Stakes Saturday.

#3 Frosted (Rosario / McLaughlin) is the definitely the horse to beat. This will be his third race after spending some time in Dubai. He has raced sensationally carrying a two race winning streak into this race. He holds the highest last out speed number and one sound workout. He should run right off the leader ready to strike going into the stretch. He excels at this distance. Not much value for this heavily favored son of Tapit.
$1 WIN.

#6 Samraat (J. Ortiz / Violette) should give chase with the second highest last out speed number, a two race progression, and three stamina producing, peaking workouts. This millionaire son of Noble Causeway has the tactical speed to adjust to the pace and spring into the stretch. Like most in here, comes in fresh off thirty days rest.
$1 PLACE  /  $2 SHOW.

#1 Shaman Ghost (Castellano / Jerkens) should contend with a couple of very good last out speed numbers and two superb peaking workouts. He drops in off a longer route and gets Lasix for the first time. This son of Ghostzapper should be tracking the pace seeking a path through the jumble of horses as they enter the stretch.
$1 SHOW.

Another Wagering Interest

#9 Mubtaahij [IRE] (I Ortiz / McLaughlin) should contend with the third highest last out speed number at a longer distance and four hearty workouts. With a swift pace he could make the dash to the wire successful. A millionaire son of Dubawi [IRE], count on him to give a strong performance.

10 CENT Superfecta

#3 Frosted  /  #6 Samraat  /  #1 Shaman Ghost, #9 Mubtaahij [IRE]  /  ALL.
