Saratoga Race 6:  Post: 3:55 ET

2-Power Agenda (9/5)

Forecast: We’ve really been looking forward to the debut of this talented son of Nyquist and expect the T. Pletcher-trained colt to graduate at first asking, assuming he breaks well from the gate, something he’s done quite well in his morning preparations.  An August 8th half mile gate breeze in :47 2/5 while much best of the team could not have been more impressive, and with a good foundation of drills prior to that he’s certain to be plenty fit and ready for a major effort first crack out of the box. 



Del Mar Race 4:  Post: 3:30 PT

4-She’s Our Charm (5/2)

Veteran mare has been sparingly raced this year (just two starts) and hasn’t been out since early May, but the R. McAnally-trained daughter of Candy Ride shows a sharp, steady, and healthy recent series of workouts to have her ready for a major effort over a turf course she’s always liked.  Most effective on the lead but capable of stalking and pouncing if the pace flow dictates, she has a significant edge in the speed figure department and should have no excuses as a win play and rolling exotic single.
