Promising 2-year-olds competed at Saratoga

After recapping the fillies last week, this week we take a look at some of the most promising 2-year-old colts who competed at Saratoga during the recently-concluded 2011 meet. Keep an eye on these runners this fall and beyond.

This Darley homebred impressed in his Sept. 3 debut going seven furlongs for trainer Kiaran McLaughlin.
