Saturday's 9th race (3:59pm ET) from Saratoga is the Grade II Ballston Spa for fillies and mares traveling a mile and a sixteenth on the inner turf course.

#4 Strathnaver (6-1) finished a wide, troubled 6th of 10 (beaten 2.25 lengths) in the G1 Diana here July 19. Johnny V knows her now and she can contend in this spot with a repeat of her near-miss in the G1 Just a Game at Belmont June 7. Motion's patient mare needs clear sailing and should offer wagering value.

#7 Filimbi (2-1) was my top in the De La Rose here last time and she did not disappoint at 2.35-1. Mott's well-bred miss is on the upswing and might be ready to tackle graded company.

#5 Dayatthespa (5-2) finished 2nd as the beaten favorite in the aforementioned De La Rose, her first start in more than eight months for Chad Brown. She likes this turf course.   

The Plays:

$16 to win #4

$8 Exacta Box 4, 7 ($16)

$4 Exacta Box 4, 5 ($8)

given that rain do you reallt think this one will still be on the lawn? Contenders: 7 Filimbi 5 Dayatthespa 4 Strathnaver (GB) 2 Centre Court and LONG shot: 3 Abaco underneath off a singe Belmont performance so doubtful for the win
Correction: #7, 2, 4.
#5 scratched. #7, 2, 5 in that order. No profit potential....pass. Good luck!!!
