Saratoga Horses in Focus for Monday, August 20th

Race 3: Big Muddy (#2)

Was totally outrun early in his debut, but found his best stride late, sprinting through the lane before galloping out strongly.

Is bred to handle longer distances, as a son of Medaglia d’Oro out of a stamina-laden female family.

DRF Formulator Fact: Over the past five years, Todd Pletcher is 11 for 20 (55 percent, $5.64 ROI) in 9-furlong dirt maiden races at Saratoga.

5-2 on ML

Race 5: Ranger in Paradise (#2)

Ran well within the context of his last race, as he made a wide late run into a race dominated on the front end.

Should receive some pace to close into here with speeds Too Fast to Pass, Rectify, and Missle Bomb in the mix.

Gets a positive trainer change to Bruce Levine, who does good work off the claim in dirt sprints.

6-1 on ML

Race 8: Papa Shot (#4)

Realm, who beat him two back, returned to upset the Alydar Stakes against tougher company.

Was badly compromised by a speed-favoring racetrack last time out.

It’s a positive sign that Linda Rice steps him up into stakes company off that pair of efforts

12-1 on ML​

Saratoga Horses in Focus for Friday, August 17th

Race 2: Land Mine (#5)

Ran well in her return from the layoff last time despite being disadvantage by a speed-favoring track that helped the winner.

Projects to sit a great trip stalking the two speeds, who figure to hook up at some point.

Is one of the few fillies in this field that wants every bit of the 1 1/8 miles distance.

3-1 on ML

Race 6: Southern Gal (#7)

Showed promise in both of her turf starts last year, and has a right to be better with added maturity.

Should appreciate the return to sprinting since her best half-sibling was turf sprinter First Charmer.

DRF Formulator Fact: Over the past five years, Mark Casse is 16 for 70 (23 percent, $2.51 ROI) off layoffs of 180 days or more in turf sprints (5 to 7 furlongs).

6-1 on ML

Race 9: Chase Greatness (#11)

Ran his best dirt race over a sloppy, sealed track, which is sometimes indicative of turf ability.

Is bred to handle grass as a son of More Than Ready and a half-brother to turf stakes-placed Chubby Star.

It’s a good sign to see a live rider like Jose Ortiz keep the mount for these connections.

12-1 on ML​

Saratoga Horses in Focus for Thursday, August 16th

Race 3: Bonita Bianca (#4)

Has shown improved speed since coming into Jason Servis’s barn, which should serve her well here.

Was on a dead rail during the early part of her race at Delaware last time before rallying late.

May be catching her stablemate Picco Uno at the right time, since that one has trouble putting top efforts back-to-back.

3-1 on ML

Race 8: Cool Beans (#9)

May find herself in a position to control this race on the front end with little other speed signed on.

Has run very well in all of her turf starts while facing some tough rivals including Significant Form, Toinette, and La Signare.

Her fast recent workout over the Oklahoma course suggests that she’s doing well heading into this race.

9-2 on ML​

Saratoga Horses in Focus for Monday, August 13th

Race 1: Fixed Point (#3)

His two turf sprint efforts at Gulfstream make him very competitive with this field.
The top two finishers out of his last race have returned to run significantly faster speed figures in subsequent starts.
Gets a massive trainer upgrade to Phil Serpe.
8-1 on ML

Race 2: Anna Rae (#7)

Got caught up in a taxing pace duel last time, and understandably tired.
Should appreciate the slight turnback in distance.
DRF Formulator Fact: Over the past five years, Robertino Diodoro is 10 for 28 (36 percent, $2.46 ROI) first off the claim with horses entered for tags of $25,000 or less in dirt sprints at NYRA.
3-1 on ML

Race 8: She’s Delightful (#3)

Was extremely wide around the turn last time, yet still ran on well to only miss third by a length.
Appears to be cycling back into top form, now as she makes her third start off the layoff.
Gets a rider upgrade to Javier Castellano.
6-1 on ML​

Saratoga Horses in Focus for Sunday, August 12th

Race 3: Yourdreamsormine (#1)
May have been racing on a bad rail at Monmouth last time when facing slightly tougher company.
Figures to sit a good trip stalking the likely speeds, Big Guy Ian and Too Fast to Pass.
DRF Formulator Fact: Over the past five years, Jorge Navarro is 5 for 13 at NYRA tracks, despite struggling in prior seasons.
3-1 on ML

Race 7: Excellent Sunset (#8)
Got a massive bump in her TimeformUS Speed Figure last time (107) for overcoming an extremely slow pace to win.
The horse she beat last time returned to win impressively next time out with an improved speed figure.
DRF Formulator Fact: Over the past five years, Brendan Walsh is 5 for 22 (23 percent, $2.89 ROI) with last-out maiden winners on the turf.
8-1 on ML

Race 9: Mom’s On Strike (#5)
Ran one of her best career races going this distance two back in the Bewitch.
Was always out of position while racing wide around the track in the New York last time out.
Has handled turf courses with some give to them, which bodes well for her chances after the rain we got this week.
3-1 on ML

Saratoga Horses in Focus for Saturday, August 11th

Race 7: A Great Time (#1)
Has put forth turf sprint efforts that would make her competitive with this group.
Got the wrong trip last time as her rider unwisely decided to rate her off the pace, and she got shuffled back on the turn.
Gets a positive rider switch to Ricardo Santana, Jr., who has been riding very well at this meet.
12-1 on ML

Race 9: Breaking the Rules (#5)
Ran deceptively well last time, as he was allowed to get shuffled back in the early going and had to alter course while re-rallying inside.
Has shown great tenacity in his races and probably has yet to reach his full potential.
The Pace Projector is predicting a situation favoring horses on or near the lead and he has the tactical speed to sit right off the leader.
7-2 on ML

Race 10: Blacktype (#2)
Got a needed confidence builder when beating optional claiming company last time out.
His form this year is better than it appears at first glance, as he got the wrong trip two back in the Fort Marcy.
Draws an ideal inside post position for a horse that likes to be covered up in his races.
8-1 on ML​
