Jeff Siegel's Best Bets for Saturday (7-10)

Ellis Park Race 6 – Post time: 3:10 CT

3-Wora (8-1) 

Here’s a grass grab bag for first-level allowance older horses that offers a possibility of a price chance. Wora returns to turf, has run well on the lawn in the past, and tackles an easier group after failing to land a blow in a tougher spot on dirt at Churchill Downs on Derby day.  Freshened for more than two months and working well in the interim, the son of Upstart has back numbers that make him dangerous at this level and projects to settle in the second flight and then have him chance to tag the speed from the quarter pole home.  He’s listed at 8-1 on the morning line and we suspect he’s better than that.

Woodbine Race 7 – Post time: 4:21 ET

3-Our Flash Drive (7/2) 

Had a couple of outings last summer at Saratoga without much success but returned a much better filly in her sophomore debut three weeks ago when dismantling a maiden field with ease in her first outing over the local all-weather surface. In victory, the daughter of Ghostzapper gave every indication that she’ll be even better around two turns, so despite this aggressive raise in class to Grade-3 company we anticipate the M. Casse-trained filly will be up to the task. A bullet recent workout (46 4/5 seconds, fastest of 44) in another plus, so at 7/2 on the morning line she’s a solid win bet and rolling exotic single.
