Hell of a day of racing yesterday at Saratoga and the superstars answered the bell. However, that meant for a chalky day and the Ductor needs to feed Skip. Can’t pay the bills with 2/5’s, more opportunities today. Let’s Ride.
Saratoga Race 1: 6 Furlongs. Clm 12500
#6 First Homestead (6/1) – This gelding is in razor sharp form and draws nicely to the outside. His figures fit with this group and the Ductor sees #1 Moonachie (4/5) as very beatable.
Race 2: 5½ Furlongs. (Turf) MC 50000
#10 Everesting (7/2) – He ran a very good 2nd at this level last time dueling from the rail. He has the early speed to clear this field and will be tough to catch without any early pressure.
Race 9: 1 Mile. (Inner Turf) Better Talk Now Stakes
*Gullet Shot of the Day #3 Wolfie’s Dynaghost (8/1) – This colt has shown talent in his young career, winning on debut and off the bench for a barn that rarely does so. In his first try on turf last time, he had no chance pressing a quick pace going longer. Facing a much weaker group and shortening in distance today, he’s bred to be better on the lawn and the Ductor sees him running a more representative effort today. He can surprise this group at a nice number.
