Saratoga Horses in Focus for Friday August 11th

Race 3:

Kristofferson (#3)

Was chasing a pace that collapsed in his turf debut last time.

Should prove to be a turf horse since his dam is a half-sister to three Group 1 winners on grass.

Miguel Vera gets a 97 Trainer Rating with horses making their second start for his barn after a trainer switch.

6-1 on ML


Race 7:

Mr. Massena (#2)

Possesses the tactical speed to be placed close to the pace in a race that lacks confirmed front-runners.

Was off very slowly in his last turf start, which was detrimental in a race where few horses were able to make late runs.

Makes his first start as a gelding.

9-2 on ML


Race 8:

Loose On the Town (#1)

Ran better than it seems last time after stumbling badly at the start and getting rated behind a slow pace.

Has really improved as a 5-year-old and may be able to transfer his improved turf form to dirt.

Has run well over this track in the past.

12-1 on ML
