I will be back later with selections from Penn National
Yesterday, Brilliant Chase ran a solid 1:10 for 6F winning our choice and paying $11.40 and $4.00. In the 11th, Ashraq couldn’t handle the torrid pace and as Janis sang, “faded as my jeans.”
Today we are heading to Saratoga where the rail is dead and so is post position #8.
Race 6 is a $64K Allowance for girls that are 3yo+, NY bred, and NWx2
#7 Eloquent Speaker (4/5) is the deserving favorite in this race getting the best last, best overall speed and best overall class. She stumbled at the start in her last and ran up to take a two length lead and continued leading into the stretch until tiring in the final paces. She stays at the same class/company today and will look to take command early, set/control the pace and stay with it late. Can any of these ladies take her?
#2 Saratoga Beauty (8/1) is coming off a long layoff and has been working forwardly shooting a couple of bullets including her last 3F at :35.4. She broke her maiden against open company and was subsequently placed in the $250K Maiden Of The Mist stakes. Evidently something transpired shelving this daughter of Mucho Uno and now she makes her return. I look for her to press the pace and put pressure on the 7 before tailing off.
# 6 Kinky Sox (5/1) is coming off a win versus much weaker and steps up to a spot where she has never raced. Given her late kick, she has a chance at a slice.
#5 Bustin Scones (6/1) has second best overall speed and class as well as second best last. She is 7:1-2-0 at this distance and has had a dearth of chances against similar, yet has come up, at best, second. Exotics? Yes. Winner? No.
#1 Shesasuperfreak (6/1) has second best last race and has woken up after the four month layoff If Santana can get her off the rail and not allow the 7 to run away, he may have a shot in the stretch.
#4 Fight On Lucy (15/1) this filly may fool all of us today and score. She gets a manageable distance this race after going long her last three. She is certainly a front end runner and look for Reylu to gun it with her straight away.
My pick – never one to bet a heavy favorite, I am going to take a mild poke with Kinky Sox.
