Saratoga Race 5:  Post: 3:21 ET

1-More Than Vows (4-1)

Debuting juvenile filly has looked quite good in the a.m. and should be plenty fit and ready for a major effort first crack out of the box.  Bred for turf (More Than Ready) and displaying strength and athleticism in her morning trials, the B. Lynch-trained filly looks like an extremely live item and hopefully will leave cleanly from the rail. She’s listed at 4-1 on the morning line and will offer good wagering value at or near that price in the win pool and in the various rolling exotics. 



Del Mar Race 8:  Post: 5:30 PT

3-You’re My Boy Kat (5/2)

In the frame in both of his career outings, maiden-claiming juvenile removes blinkers, switches to F. Prat, and is the logical 5/2 morning line favorite for trainer D. O’Neill.   A team gate drill sans the hood in company with stable mate River Tiber (entered in today’s seventh race) last week in :48 flat was decent enough so if the son of Tale of Ekati can continue his improving pattern he should be able to handle this field.
