race 1:

:6: D'princess won in May in her second after a layoff, dropping in class and bet down: the same parameters than today. Gets good pace set up here. :2: Time for Angie had a wide trip in a race run too fast for her linking, could rebound to her best after slower fractions.

NP & 3rd

This 34.60 winner smells pharmacology... or speed bias.

race 3:

Was Unrrepented win (1st race) a miracle or some golden rail?

:2: MY MAN AL was bet, showed 22.00 speed over an anti-speed track in Belmont (DRForm info), now drops and get lasix for the first time: Has improved in the morning 49.2 B > 48.1 B. Five pound claimer a big plus.

race 7:

After two bad runs :9: DEPECHE CHAT comes up to competitive Saratoga (?). First partant of Jorge Navarro at the meeting. With his A game he would win.

I wanted the 9 as well.

Wacky day. The 1a was also supposed to be better than the 1...

Lots of underlays and tosses winning today(and lately), but Irad Ortiz continues to put on a show.

I have Sweet Whiskey as a bet-against later... we'll see if that jinx continues

I probably should have thrown $20 win on that underlayed :1::1a: , because I had $8 in doubles to the :1:entry :9: from the :2: in the previous race...

oh well, I guess I lucked out in the end with the 'other' entrymate anyway...

Race8
key horses:
:7: Irish Nuggets - Irad is in rare form, threat to wire at a price.

:4: Sweet Whiskey - my notes= "bet against next"

:3: Wavell Avenue - Threat for Chad Brown may make a big move.

:6: Katies Garden - Love the match of Alvarado/Shirreffs on this well-meant layoff horse.

R9 I think I'm done betting for the day and :1: :6: seem to dominate this race on paper.

I'm interested in 2 things. Can Irad get more from the :6: in order to beat the :1:?

and can longshot :5: contend here? We are starting to get into Jonathan Sheppard territory and he should go off at a decent price.

The Spaniard
08-26-2015, 06:22 PM
Both are improvers but I think the :1: is best.

I'm going with :4: HOLLIDAY STAR, that comes here from the same route than last year, when he was an unlucky 2nd. His stamina over this trip is confirmed, while Nš1, out of an Argentin 5f turf specialist is no so clear.

2nd

race 10:

:11: Pointe Class: Arch x Marlin (fine turf ped.) unexposed on the green and tactical speed very dangerous in these Md Claimers on turf.
:10: Lightning Rosie: paddock pick.
:4: Break Away: efective at this class level.
:8: Belpiana: Leparoux, top turf jockey, is wakening up.
