HorseCenter: Del Mar, Saratoga stakes previews, picks

Today on HorseCenter, your co-hosts Brian Zipse and Matt Shifman preview and offer their picks for a trio of high-profiles races this weekend with the Jim Dandy (G2) and Alfred G. Vanderbilt (G1) at Saratoga and the Bing Crosby (G1) from Del Mar.

Essential Quality makes his first start in the Jim Dandy after winning the Belmont Stakes (G1) as he prepares from the Travers (G1) on August 28.

The male sprinters are featured on both coasts with C Z Rocket as the morning line favorite in the Bing Crosby at Del Mar as is Mischevious Alex in the Vanderbilt at Saratoga.

Good luck Saturday with the sprinters and, as always, thanks for watching the show.
