Saratoga Race 7:  Post: 4:29 ET

9-Cogburn (3-1)

Juvenile colt smoked a quarter mile in :20 3/5 at the OBS April sale and then brought $150,000 through the ring.  As fast as that breeze was, the son of Not This Time has looked even more impressive in his slower, easier moves, so when the dust settles this could turn out to be a very good colt for S. Asmussen.  Drawn comfortably outside, he appears quick enough to get over and establish the running or he could settle in the stalking position and then accelerate when called upon.  At 3-1 on the morning line we like him in the win pool and in the various rolling exotics.



Del Mar Race 6:  Post: 4:30 PT

7-Private Mission (9/5)

Picked up where she left off after returning from a seven month layoff to win a fast first-level allowance sprint at Santa Anita with a strong, career-top speed figure.  She tackles tougher today in the Torrey Pines S.-G3 for 3-year-old fillies while stretching out for the first time, but the daughter of Into Mischief has the pedigree to stay a mile and the versatility to stalk and pounce if the race flow dictates.  She’s drawn comfortably outside so F. Prat can pick his spot and play it by ear.
