Saratoga’s 9th race today (8/4) is the 10th running of the $300,000 Gr. I Prioress.  This contest will feature three year old fillies running six furlongs (6f) on the dirt track.

This is a very interesting race as four out of the seven are coming from the same race; Gr. III Victory Ride.  The morning line favorite Agave Kiss (8-5) will get an outer post this time and looking to avenge her first career loss.  The Lion Heart filly will be facing a lot of speed again and this race will show what kind of a horse she really is.  Was her last race just a fluke? Or is she really not that good?  If Agave Kiss can rate then she will do just fine but if she sprints to the lead again I do not see her holding on for the win.  Unless the others just let her run an uncontested 22 - 23 second opening quarter, but I do not suspect that will be the case. 

#5 – Judy The Beauty (6-1) will be making her second start over the Saratoga dirt with her first being last year around this time.  In five career starts the Ghostzapper filly has ran twice over synthetic and twice over the turf; she has finished no worse than second in any of those races.  Pretty impressive feat considering this horse has never run over the same track twice and has even traveled across the pond to France.   The Wesley Ward trainee should be sitting just behind the pace and making her move late in the race.  Jockey Joel Rosario will be making his second start on the chestnut filly and looking to improve on his second place finish back on June 14th

Taking off from the two hole is Livi Makenzie (20-1).  The Ron Moquett horse will be getting a drop in distance here and this could be just what she needs.  The chestnut filly from Macho Uno has only finished out of the money twice in her career and has never finished worse than fourth.  She will be contending the pace from the get go and looking to wire the field.  The pace will be tough but she is used to running further distances so she should have plenty left in the tank. Consider for exotics.

#4 – Tu Endie Wei (6-1) will be another try over the dirt for trainer Reade Baker.  Last time out she finished a distant third but did have a troubled start to the race.  With Julien Leparoux riding better at Saratoga then he was at Belmont an improvement is not out of the question for this Johar filly.

 

Plays: $7 win, $10 place, $13 show on the 5.  $2 exacta key 5, 2/4. 
Nice job! Thought the 5 had it there but the 1 had just a little bit left. Wish I included him in there. Pretty much broke even on that one as well.

before scratches is close amongst 6 Agave,4 Tu Endie Wei, and 3 Jamaican Smoke but wait till the tote is available scratches are in and the track condition is known. The FOUR was a monster in Toronto last season but has yet to live up to that reputation elsewher.
