it's nice to see these Saratoga stake races featured on NBC sports channel,a really nice field lines up for this years Whitney,as a racing fan you can't ask for much more than this,(the 1 hour show is from 5:00 to 6:00 EST) heres my take.
#5.RON THE GREEK(6-1)-2nd to Fort Larned in this last year,i just have to go with my favorite trainer Bill Mott in a big SPA stakes race at a fair price.rain in the forecast is a plus.
#3.FORT LARNARD(7-5)-given 6 weeks off after impressive win in last,defending champ will be a short price but may be the best dirt horse in the country,hard to pick against him.
#6.ALPHA(10-1)-hasn't hit the board since winning(dead heat) the Travers here last year,but loves this track and picks up top jock Joel Rosario.wake up call today?
#1.SUCCESSFUL DAN(12-1)-lightly raced 7 year old has a high win % ,can run on or off the pace and has been working bullets here,lots to like at 12-1.
$2.00 Trifecta keys 3,5 with 1,6 with 3,5 ($8.00) and 3,5 with 3,5 with 1,6 ($8.00) $16.00 total play
as a horse racing fan this race is what it's all about,i can't wait to see what happens.
