Race 2: Minsky Moment (#1)

  • Got way too far behind a moderate pace going a mile last time.
  • Should appreciate this slight stretch-out to 1 1/8 miles.
  • Has arguably run his best races on turf despite not winning on this surface.

3-1 on ML


Race 4: Game Boy Benny (#1)

  • The Pace Projector is predicting that he’s fast enough to make the lead here.
  • Has some sneaky pedigree to handle the turf on the dam’s side.
  • Would be formidable here if he’s able to transfer his series of triple-digit TimeformUS Speed Figures to turf.

5-1 on ML


Race 7: Saratoga Beauty (#8)

  • Was bet down to 9-5 favoritism in her debut when she was clearly well-meant.
  • Broke slowly and received a very uncomfortable trip thereafter in her unveiling.
  • Should show a lot more speed this time, as Paco Lopez comes back in to ride.

9-2 on ML


Race 9: English Breeze (#7)

  • The Pace Projector is predicting that she will get a fast pace to close into.
  • Did well to produce such an effective closing kick after getting rank in the early stages last time.
  • The 89 TimeformUS Speed Figure that she earned in that New York-bred race stacks up well against these open company foes.

5-1 on ML

    Nothing so far but don’t sneeze at English Breeze.
