Saratoga Picks

Two 2nds Friday to continue the theme of the meet. This is fun. We are having fun. There is rain in the forecast today too! Yippee! On the turf for now at Saratoga, but pay close attention. They could rip them off the turf at any moment. Skip.

Race 8: 6½ Furlongs. G2 Herb Moelis Memorial Saratoga Special Stakes

#4 Haul (3/1) – In a difficult 2-year-old race, the Conductor will lean heavily on this colt. He impressed in his debut, finishing strongly after pressing a quick pace. The added distance should be his friend today, and Mr. Ductor is heavily against #6 Rhyme Schemes (4/5). Rhyme Scheme’s last speed figure is inflated, since he ran over a speed biased track.

Race 9: 1 Mile. (Inner Turf) G1 Fourstardave

#6 Casa Creed (7/5) – This Ol’ Boy hasn’t lost a step and might be better than ever. He had bad trip last time in the Kelso and still won easy. He was uncovered most of the backstretch and sustained a 4-wide uncovered move the entire turn. Casa Creed will get his picture taken in the Fourstardave again today.

#7 Ice Chocolat (8/1) –  This gelding ran a solid 4th behind Casa Creed last time after a terrible start. He rallied with energy down the stretch and should improve off that effort. That was his first start going two turns in a long time too. He’ll be a square price and the Conductor will be screaming for a 6-7 exacta in the feature.

Race 11: 1 1/16 Mile. (Inner Turf) F.S.Alw 95000n1x

*Gullet Shot of the Day #1 Spinning Colors (8/1) – The Conductor likes this fillies progression since she’s moved to the turf and stretched out in distance. She had a good trip last time breaking her maiden, but ran a strong late pace figure and extended on the gallop out. She’ll get a nice ground saving trip today and has upside trying two turns for the first time. She can upset this weak allowance field.
