Sounds of the City 3-1 Caress Choice

Fillies and mares will sprint 5 ½ furlongs on the turf when they compete in a wide-open edition of the $100,000 Sportech Caress on Friday at Saratoga Race Course.

 

The tepid favorite on the morning-line is Sounds of the City (3-1), who will attempt to give owner Richard Santulli and owner Alan Goldberg, who took the Grade 1 Diana on Saturday, another stakes win at the Spa. Sounds of the City seeks a breakthrough win, having placed in three stakes, including a third-place finish in the Klassy Briefcase on July 14 at Monmouth Park in her most recent start.

 

Jose Lezcano will ride Sounds of the City from post position 2.

 

Vincent Tew's Spun Cap, the 7-2 second choice, ships in from the Thoroughbred Center in Kentucky and looks to rebound off a seventh-place finish in The Very One Stakes on May 17 at Pimlico. She was second in the Giant's Causeway in April at Keeneland in her prior start to The Very One.

 

Silverette, trained by Dale Romans for Paul Pompa, Jr., will try turf for the first time in the Sportech Caress. She enters the race off sharp efforts at Monmouth Park: a victory in the Red Cross in May and a second in the Blue Sparkler on June 22.

 

"It's her first time sprinting on the turf," Romans said. "She's doing good. She's got a lot of turf pedigree, and she should run well."

 

Robby Albarado has the assignment aboard Silverette, who was installed at 4-1 on the morning line and drew post 8.

 

The field also includes Madame Giry, Lion Down by Me, Double the Energy, Rosa Salvaje, and Queen Chatanika. Holiday Soiree and Well Kept were entered for the main track only.
