Saratoga Horses in Focus for Friday September 1st

Race 5:

Giantinthemoonlite (#7)

The Pace Projector is predicting that he will be on the lead in a situation favoring the front-runner.

Ran better than it appears in his two races over the winter at Aqueduct.

DRF Formulator Fact: Over the past five years, he is 7 for 32 (22 percent, $2.81 ROI) with horses coming off layoffs of greater than 180 days in NYRA dirt sprints.

15-1 on ML


Race 7:

Dr. Shane (#5)

Was compromised by a very slow pace last time (indicated by blue color-coding in the PPs).

There is much more speed in this race, so he should get a decent pace to close into.

May have really appreciated the cutback to 5 1/2 furlongs last time.

10-1 on ML


Race 8:

Tommy T (#4)

Was off a step slowly, and made a middle move into contention before having to alter course in the lane.

The winner came back out of his debut to improve his speed figure significantly next time out.

Has worked well over the Saratoga main track in recent weeks.

7-2 on ML


Race 10:

Ready for Rye (#2)

Hasn’t gotten many opportunities on turf, but has actually run very well in all of those starts.

Owns a win over this Saratoga turf course going today’s distance.

Figures to work out a perfect stalking trip along the rail.

6-1 on ML
