Stuck inside and clear too late when just behind a couple of today’s rivals on August 5th.

Improved throughout 3yo campaign.

Saratoga Monday Highlight Horse: Distorted Beauty

BetStratAdforTFUSBlog

>>Saratoga / Race 7 / August 31st / 4:21 EDT

#3 Distorted Beauty went 3 for 5 on turf as a 3yo, and just missed winning the Pebbles stakes while earning a new career top TFUS Speed Figure of 108 at the end of the year.  Returned to the races as a 4yo, she has picked up where she left off.

She matched that 108 figure in her 2015 debut while making an impressive sweep around the field going shorter to win her first start back.  Stepped back up into stakes company for her second start, she got jammed up in traffic and then finished strongly too late in the $150k Intercontinental, which was dominated up close.  After racing wide and failing to impact Grade 3 company out of town, she returned to form last time over this turf course.  Once again finding herself inside and behind a moderate pace, Distorted Beauty had no choice but to stay in and try to work her way through traffic.  She did so gamely, and was knifing through between horses late while just coming up short at the end.  She once again earned a new career top figure for that effort (115).

This is no easy race that Distorted Beauty has landed in, but she is an improved, and improving, 4yo, and we think she can go with these horses.  She just needs a clean trip.

SARATOGA

Race 2:

Switches back to grass after trying too tough of a spot sprinting on dirt.

8/1 on ML.

Tough trip in first start here behind a front-running winner.

Wheels back quickly at level of the claim and gets back on turf.

DEL MAR 

Race 5:

Professor Berns, the 2 horse:

Pace Projector shows him coming from behind in race expected to have fast pace.

Visibility, the 3 horse:

His speed figures make him competitive in here.

May appreciate return to one turn.

Saratoga Sunday Highlight Horse: Making the case for an 8/1 shot in today’s 2nd race

BetStratAdforTFUSBlog

>>Saratoga / Race 2/ August 30th / 1:33 EDT

#5 Vitiate is one of the most lightly raced horses in today’s 2nd race, for $75k MCLs over a mile on turf.  He has made just one start on turf, two starts overall.  Based on his debut run on grass at Belmont Park, he is a horse who could come forward quickly for his underrated trainer.

In that debut, he finished behind #1 Fourth of July, the ML favorite for today’s race.  But based on the running of that race, the two-length gap between them can quickly be closed today.

That race was run at a slow pace (note Pace Figures/fractions color-coded blue), and while Fourth of July was getting a smart ride going right up to race on the pace, Vitiate was racing greenly and rating in last.  Vitiate was kept on hold all the way to the top of the stretch, and was then sent wide to take a run.  He continued to go greenly while racing on to the finish, and wound up finishing 4th, two lengths behind Fourth of July.

Fourth of July, who has run four times, earned a 91 TFUS Speed Figure for that effort, and he has since come back to post another 91 while finishing 4th vs. MSW company.  Vitiate earned a figure of 89.  He didn’t get the chance to build on that debut when making his next start in a tough dirt sprint up here.

Assuming Vitiate can improve upon that debut run back on turf today, he does not have a large gap to close, which makes him an interesting horse at anything like his ML odds of 8/1.

SARATOGA

Race 3:

#3 Tango Time

Missed the break and was stuck behind a slow pace in stateside debut.

Still finished gamely to earn field-best TFUS Speed Figure of 116.

That was her first start off of a long layoff.

5/1 on ML.

——————————-

Was crushed at the start before racing on deceptively well late last time.

15/1 on ML.

Has been at her best over shorter distances.

Nice prep off the layoff to gun down a talented sprinter with a clear advantage.

Good post on the outside.

5/1 on ML.

————————————-

Race 12:

#8 Coffee Clique

Finished gamely after Tepin, who was allowed to control the pace in the Distaff Turf Mile on Derby Day.

Got headstong over less-than-firm turf when disappointing in the Just A Game.

Back on track last time, and can get the right trip in this race, which is projected to be run at a fast early pace.

5/1 on ML.

DEL MAR

Race 4:

Tiz Love, the 8 horse:

Earned competitive speed figures in his first two starts.

Troubled trip in lone Del Mar start.

Trainer gets 99 rating with this sort of spacing between starts.

Moonie, the 10 horse:

Did not disgrace herself in turf route last time.
