Race 1: Somekindofmagician (#6)

  • Should appreciate the turnback in distance given that he was very effective sprinting earlier in his career.
  • Figures to receive some pace to close into with multiple speeds signed on.
  • Has steadily been rounding back into form for Mike Trombetta, who sends live runners to Saratoga.

9-2 on ML


Race 7: Macho Blue (#9)

  • Gets some needed class relief after trying tougher foes last time.
  • Was never put to a full-out drive when basically eased home in that most recent start.
  • Figures to be fitter and show more speed in his second start off the layoff.

8-1 on ML


Race 8: Hit a Provisional (#10)

  • Ran very well off the layoff last time, contesting an honest pace before battling on gamely.
  • The 102 TimeformUS Speed Figure she earned last time makes her very competitive against this field.
  • Should appreciate the slight turnback to a mile.

9-2 on ML
