Race 2: The Honest Toun (#5)
- Closed well into a slow pace the held together in his debut while altering course late.
- Should appreciate the stretch-out to 7 furlongs given his disposition and physicality.
- Likely won’t have to improve much on the 93 TimeformUS Speed Figure he earned in his debut.

Race 6: Get Set (#4)
- Is bred to handle turf as a son of Enthusiastic Gal, an accomplished turf mare who runs in the 9th race today.
- Ran deceptively well in his debut when chasing a talented pair before racing greenly on the turn.
- DRF Formulator Fact: Over the past 5 years, Steve Klesaris is 7 for 25 (28%, $3.66 ROI) with second time starting maidens.

Race 7: Six Percent (#8)

Race 10: Take Charge Aubrey (#5)
- Arguably ran her best race going this distance at Saratoga last season.
- Has earned some of the best speed figures in this field, but may get overlooked due to the presence of so many debut winners.
- Reportedly worked well in her recent 5-furlong drill on July 13 and may be ready to go off the layoff.

Saratoga is tough,but not tough enough.
