What the Nation is saying about the 2013 Saratoga Special (G2)...

Ignored at odds of 41-1, Danza made the most of his maiden opportunity around two-turns, and ran away with the $1 million Arkansas Derby by an impressive 4 3/4 lengths.Read More

  • DAVIDM9999 · I do hope Corfu stays sound while continuing to learn and develop. I saw him at SAR in his heavily backed debut. I thought he was beat when a Clement horse made a bold run at him. I bet Wired Bryan on top in the exacta and was again sure he was going to yield late. Corfu has some gameness. I love your race description especially the use of “flared nostril”. That described the closeness perfectly. · 329 days ago ·

  • Mike in SB · I think Twang has a good chance here. Claiborne is a class operation but it seems like they name their horses from a "Word of the Day" calendar. · 333 days ago ·

As much as I like Twang and Wired Bryan, them coming back so quick pushes me away. I'll use Twang for sure but I'm putting Lunarrwarfare as my top selection.
