Opus A Faces Six in Saratoga Dew

Opus A looks to rebound from a fourth-place finish in the Fleet Indian on Monday as she takes on a field of six other New York-bred fillies and mares in the $100,000 Saratoga Dew at 1 1/8 miles.

 

Trained by Rick Violette, the 5-year-old daughter of Read the Footnotes had been no worse than third in five starts at a mile or more this year before cutting back to seven furlongs in the Fleet Indian, in which she was beaten nine lengths after dueling three wide for the early lead.

 

“Perhaps it was good to get a race over the track, but I don’t think I’ll be running her at seven furlongs anytime in the near future,” said Violette of Opus A, who drew the rail under high weight of 124 pounds. Alan Garcia will ride the 2-1 morning-line favorite.

 

Second choice at 5-2 on the morning line is Harbor Mist, who was 2-for-2 at the Spa last year and was most recently third in open company in the Summer Guest on August 17. Hall of Fame jockey Edgar Prado will ride the 3-year-old Rockport Harbor filly from post position 7.

 

The Saratoga Dew also drew Great Gracie Dane, seventh in the Irish Linnet on July 27; Go Unbridled, fifth in the Fleet Indian; Fiftyfour Forever, the Bouwerie runner-up who was second and third in two starts at the Spa this year; Ginger Snapit, and Alykela.
