Saratoga Picks

Goose egg Wednesday brought the train to a screeching halt. They took two races off the turf at Saratoga again today, while four remain on. With rain in the forecast Friday, we need to bring in some coal quick. While scouring the form and tape, the Conductor can only come up with one measly play today. If you only have one bullet, you best not miss. Skip.

Race 3: 1 1/16 Mile. (Turf) S.OC 45000n2x

*Gullet Shot of the Day #5 Fatima’s Blessing (8/1) – This gelding ran well including a victory despite poor turf trips at Belmont and Aqueduct this spring. He returned off a short break vs open company at Monmouth last time and was far back behind a slow pace. He ran another strong late pace figure that day and looks primed to run his best at Saratoga in his 2nd start back in the Michael Dini barn. This race should have a quick early pace, which will benefit Fatima’s Blessing as well.
