Frac Daddy Returns on Short Rest in Saranac

Magic City Thoroughbred Partners' Frac Daddy, who scored in his first try over the grass on August 24, returns on short rest to contest the 106th running of the Grade 3, $150,000 Saranac for 3-year-olds going 1 1/8 miles on the Mellon Turf course.


Frac Daddy, 7-2 on the morning line for the Saranac, placed second this spring in the Grade 1 Arkansas Derby before finishing 16th in the Kentucky Derby and 14th in the Belmont Stakes. Freshened by trainer Ken McPeek, Frac Daddy returned on the Saratoga inner turf course and won a 1 1/16-mile race in 1:41.64.


In the Saranac, Frac Daddy will face Notacatbutallama, 5-2 on the morning line, who is on a three-race win streak for trainer Todd Pletcher, including an off-the-turf score last out in the Grade 3 Hall of Fame. Notacatbutallama is coupled with Main Track Only entrant Micromanage for Repole Stable.


Joha, 8-1, winner of the Grade 1 Breeders' Futurity last fall at Keeneland, enters off two close-up second-place finishes, including a half-length defeat to Notacatbutallama in the Solar Splendor Stakes on July 13 at Belmont Park.


Five Iron, 4-1, a winner of back-to-back stakes races at Woodbine, ships in for trainer Brian Lynch.


Tattenham, 5-1; Favor Factor, 5-1; and Front, 15-1, complete the field.


Battier and Saint Vigeur join Micromanage as Main Track Only entrants.
