Saratoga – Race 2. Post 1:44 ET.
2-Prairie Wings (2-1)
Lightly-raced filly missed by a neck in a mini-marathon over this course last month, so a shortening in trip shouldn’t be an issue in this maiden special weight grass affair for older fillies and mares. The daughter of Tapit, runner-up in all four career starts while earning OK numbers, could find herself as the controlling speed in this six-runner affair and given that type of trip should be hard to overhaul. She’s the second choice on the morning line at 2-1 and represents wagering value at that price.
Saratoga - RACE 6: Post 4:06 ET.
4-Glass Ceiling (7/2)
Shows up in a seller for the first time since an easy maiden $40,000 claiming win last fall and the drop in class combined with the switch to Luis Saez makes this Danny Gargan-trained daughter of Constitution the top pick and one to beat. This will be her first start on grass, but there’s no reason she won’t handle it. At 7/2 on the morning line, she’s a win play and rolling exotic single.
