Saturday's 11th race (5:10pm ET) from Saratoga Race Course is the Grade I King's
Bishop for 3-year-olds traveling seven furlongs on the main track.
#8 Declan's Warrior (5-1) was a flat 5th in
the G2 Amsterdam off a layoff but that was a prep for this and only serves to
inflate his price. He loves extended sprints (3 wins), fired a local bullet for
this Aug. 15, and Johnny V hops aboard.
Forty Tales (5-2) seeks a Graded sprint four-bagger for Pletcher. He’ll be
finishing once again under Rosario.
Central Banker (20-1) is a competent stalk and pounce sprinter on turf and
dirt for Stall. He gets tested for class and Albarado is clicking with this
#9 Overanalyze (12-1)
owns three Graded wins including the G2 Futurity at 6f. He turns back and could
finish full of run under Castellano.
Capo Bastone (15-1) was lapped on stablemate Forty Tales in the G3 Derby
Trial and is reportedly training well for this. He can spice up the exotics.
Pace should be hot with #1 Salutos Amogos, #5 Majestic Hussar, #7 Mentor Cane,
and #10 Let Em Shine mixing it up early.
$22 to win #8
$1 Trifecta 2-8-12/2-8-12/2-3-8-9-12 ($18)
