Saratoga Horses in Focus for Wednesday July 26th

Race 7

Man of Wiregrass (#6)

Put in a decent effort against a salty group of open claimers last time, going a distance that is a little short for him.

He is one of the few horses with speed in a race where two of his major rivals are plodding late runners.

DRF Formulator Fact: Over the past five years, Mike Maker is 12 for 46 (26 percent, $3.19 ROI) in turf races at 10 furlongs or farther on the NYRA circuit.

6-1 on ML

Race 8

Heldatgunpoint (#4)

Did well to survive a fast pace last time in his first start against winners.

Trainer Dave Cannizzo gets an 86 Trainer Rating with runners going from stakes to allowance company.

He is a half-brother to accomplished turf sprinter Acquired Cat, so shouldn’t mind this turn-back to 5 1/2 furlongs.

12-1 on ML

    I don’t believe Man of Wiregrass is coming out of an open claiming race, but a race restricted to non-winners of 3 lifetime.
