Friday's 9th race (5:30PM ET) from Saratoga is the G2 Bernard Baruch Handicap for 3-year-olds and up traveling nine furlongs on the inner turf. #1 Baletti
(5-1) has a history of running well fresh for sharp low profile trainer Angel Penna Jr. The 6yo gelding rallied to win a Graded event at Belmont in May. He reportedly came unraveled in the heat at Monmouth last time so I will forgive that below par effort. If the late-runner gets enough pace help he can be along in time at a hint of a price. #5 Get Stormy
(9-5) won the G2 Fourstardave here last time. The win type is fast and deadly up to a mile and a sixteenth. This is his first attempt at nine furlongs and he will take them as far as he can. He shows a strong local five furlong turf bullet (Aug 18 - best of 33) for this. The Plays: $18 to win #1, $6 Exacta Box 1-5 ($12) - analysis by Jarrod Horak
