Saratoga Horses in Focus for Sunday, July 22nd

Race 5: Point to Remember (#8)

Have been waiting for this horse to stretch out given his pedigree, as a son of Point of Entry out of a stakes-winning router.

The Pace Projector is predicting that he’s fast enough to make the lead here, which may be an advantage.

DRF Formulator Fact: Over the past five years, Jimmy Jerkens is 10 for 39 (26 percent, $2.27) with horses stretching out for the first time on dirt.

7-2 on ML

Race 6: Wet Your Whistle (#4)

Is bred to handle this trip, since Stroll is an 18% turf sprint sire and his half-siblings were best on turf and synthetic.

Was very game to win his dirt debut despite getting steadied on the far turn.

Mike Trombetta knows how to win with shippers at this meet.

6-1 on ML

Race 8: Stainless (#2)

Ran very well in her turf debut when finishing second to Rushing Fall in the Jessamine.

Can excuse her only other turf race, as she may not have cared for a very soft turf course at Gulfstream that was playing much slower than “good.”

DRF Formulator Fact: Over the past five years, Todd Pletcher is 8 for 31 (26 percent, $3.46 ROI) with 3-year-olds off layoffs of 180 days or more in turf routes.

6-1 on ML​

    0 for 2 but that means we’re due.I’ll expect”Lion in Wait”to do just that & maybe “Jaunt” to flaunt some speed with “Stainless”no less.Exacta & Tri boxes ….
