Saratoga Horses in Focus for Sunday August 20th

Race 4: Chubby Star (#3)

Has been steadily rounding into form over his past three starts.

Got briefly shuffled back before he was tentatively ridden late against a tougher field last time.

Chris Englehart gets a 98 Trainer Rating with claimers dropping in price.

9-2 on ML


Race 5: Layla Noor (#3)

Stayed on well in her debut despite looking somewhat uncomfortable over the sloppy track.

Is bred to handle added ground since her dam won going as far as 12 furlongs on the turf.

DRF Formulator Fact: Over the past five years, Arnaud Delacour is 6 for 20 (30%, 2.60 ROI) with horses going from sprints to routes on the turf in their second starts.

5-1 on ML


Race 8: Romantic Music (#1)

Possesses tactical speed and is drawn inside, which is a big advantage in these one-mile races on the inner course.

Her poor effort on turf two back was not as bad as it seems given her poor trip that day.

Would be tough to beat if she gets back to her turf efforts from Tampa Bay Downs in the spring.

8-1 on ML
