SARATOGA - RACE 3: Post 2:20 ET.
6-Sursum Corda (9/5)
Improving 3-year-old filly is bred to enjoy a marathon distance. In her first attempt at this trip, the daughter of Constitution (from a Sadler’s Wells mare) should leave her previous form behind. In the frame in her last two outings and overdue for a maiden score, she shows middle-distance speed figures that continue to gradually rise,. With another forward move, the Kentucky shipper will be hard to beat. Joel Rosario, who doesn’t often ride for the Ian Wilkes barn, takes the call—another positive sign.
DEL MAR - RACE 9 – Post Time: 6:07 PT
4 – El Tigre Terrible (2-1)
Been victimized by poor racing luck that has significantly compromised his form. But at this seven-furlong trip, the Peter Miller-trained gelding should enjoy clear sailing from off the pace and get back to the winner’s circle. Most effective when held up early and allowed to blast home, the son of Smiling Tiger shortens in trip, returns to dirt, retains Flavien Prat and has proven winning form over the quirky Del Mar strip. At 2-1 on the morning line, he’s a strong win play and rolling exotic single.
