Xpressbet writer Jeff Siegel offers his top plays for Saturday.
Saratoga Race No. 3 (2:15 p.m. ET/11:15 p.m. PT)
#4 Robyn and Eli (5-2)
After finishing second in her first three starts, this sophomore filly should be ready to graduate in her first outing with Lasix. The Chad Brown-trained filly stretches out again, lands a comfortable draw that should produce an ideal pace-stalking trip, shows rising speed figures with each race and was a sharp in a recent four-furlong workout that indicates she’s spot on for another forward move. At 5-2 on the morning line, this New York-bred daughter of Laoban offers solid value in the Win pool and in the various rolling exotics.
Saratoga Race No. 9 (5:39 p.m. ET/2:39 p.m. PT)
#9 Fort Ticonderoga (2-1)
High-potential 3-year-old was very impressive breaking his maiden in his second career start (and first since last July) when graduating with complete authority in a fast, highly rated turf miler at Belmont Park last month. The son of War Front is raised into a first-level allowance middle distance event that should be well within his capabilities, so in a race that should set up nicely for his second flight, stalking style, the Shug McGaughey-trained colt seems fairly solid at 2-1 on the morning line.
