Today’s tenth race (8/23) at Saratoga is the 30th running of the Gr. I
$500,000 King’s Bishop. This race
will consist of three year olds running seven furlongs over the dirt course.
Post Time – 4:33pm ET
#8 – Coup de Grace
(2-1): Morning line favorite of the bunch and most tested as the chestnut
colt by Tapit has a Grade II and III to his name. The Larry Jones trainee should have a nice
trip from the outside post and should have a pretty hot pace to contend
with. Rosie Napravnik will be in the
saddle once again.
#2 – Wildcat Red
(4-1): The son of D’Wildcat has been nothing but consistent has he comes
into this race only missing the board once in ten tries. Should be forwardly placed with Luis Saez
aboard and the cut back in distance could be just what he is looking for.
#5 – Noble Moon
(20-1): With only four starts under his belt the son of Malibu Moon has
improved every time out of the gate.
Should be interesting to see what Irad Ortiz Jr. does out of the gate
but the cut back in distance should also fit this one nicely.
#3 – Myositis Dan
(12-1): Trained by Tom Proctor the late running son of Istan has a career
record of 9-3-2-2. Has not won over the
dirt yet so the surface could be a problem but the colt does have some closing
power. Jose Lezcano will ride.
$40 to Win #8
Total = $40
