Sar Turf Inner Vs Outer

Havent played Saratoga in years but am looking at tomorrow. The 1st and 5th are on inner turf and 7th regular turf course. Is there a bias difference as far as speed favoring etc between the two courses?

Thanks in advance

turf courses

First off, get yourself a copy of the Saratoga Handicapper by Bill Mazur, and or a copy of the DRF Saratoga Preview. There will be all sorts of info about it there. BUT, note that Saratoga is a track with tighter turns , with inner more so, hence large horses may be disadvantaged by it ,but like the round turns of Belmont. Also pay attention to post positions and the length of the race, with the run to the first turn a concern. That said, pay attention to trainers as well . Do your homework, it can be a tough meet if not prepared. Gotta go , good luck !

inner turf

Generally speaking the inner turf is a bit more speed favoring than the outer turf and outside posts are at a disadvantage, especially if they can't leave fast. It's difficult to rally wide from off the pace and win over the inner turf.
