Saratoga Horses in Focus for Wednesday, August 22nd

Race 3: Stroll Daddy (#10)
Ran on gamely in his debut despite appearing to struggle with the surface.
Is bred to handle turf as a son of solid grass influence Stroll and a half-brother to a 2-time turf sprint winner.
Joe Sharp is one of the best trainers of turf sprinters in the country (100 TimeformUS Trainer Rating).
4-1 on ML

Race 7: In Denile (#9)
Is bred to be a runner as a half-sister to Grade 1 winner Artemis Agrotera.
Was a bit green in her debut where she slow into stride and had to navigate some traffic.
Was ridden without any urgency last time, as the margin of defeat makes the performance appear worse than it was.
6-1 on ML

Race 9: Focus Group (#4)
Is one of the few horses in this field that appears to still be improving, whereas others have seen better days.
Has run his best races around 3 turns, and should appreciate every bit of this 1 5/8 miles trip.
Any residual moisture in the turf course will help him.
6-1 on ML​
