Regal Ransom Heads Salty Optional Claimer

SaratogaLogo

Saratoga’s fourth race on Wednesday, a 1 1/8th-mile optional claimer on the main track for 3-year-olds and up, has attracted a competitive field of seven.

 

The 2-1 morning-line favorite is Regal Ransom, winner of the 2009 Group 2 U.A.E. Derby and Grade 2 Super Derby. The Godolphin Stable representative has raced once this year, finishing fourth in the Grade 2 Suburban Handicap at Belmont Park on July 3.

 

Cool Coal Man, the 5-2 second choice, returns to the Spa after winning the Albert the Great Stakes by 12 ¾ lengths and finishing seventh in the Grade 1 Woodward in 2009. Owned by Robert LaPenta, Cool Coal Man has won 10 of 27 career starts, including the Skip Away Stakes at Monmouth Park two starts back. Last time out he was second in the Majestic Light on August 1, also at Monmouth.

 

Timber Reserve, installed at 4-1, will compete for the first time since finishing third in the Grade 3 William Donald Schaefer at Pimlico on May 15, a race won by Blame, who earlier in Saratoga meeting took the Grade 1 Whitney Invitational Handicap.

 

Giant Moon will aim for his second victory of the 2010 Saratoga meet, having won the Evan Shipman against New York-breds on July 26. The Albert Fried colorbearer has won seven stakes in his career, including the 2009 Grade 3 Excelsior.

 

Completing the field from the rail out are Atoned and Bad Action, both graded stakes winners; and Discreet Treasure, a half-brother to Saturday’s Grade 1 King’s Bishop winner Discreetly Mine.
