Xpressbet writer Jeff Siegel offers his top plays for Saturday.
Del Mar Race No. 3 (6 p.m. ET/3 p.m. PT)
#1 Emerald Lake (2-1)
Lightly raced with solid speed figures, a good recent breeze over the course and a cozy inside draw, this daughter of Bluegrass Cat has much in her favor and should make amends today after finishing second in a similar affair as the favorite over the local lawn last month. She switches to Umberto Rispoli and projects to settle into a second flight, stalking position and then have every chance to seal the deal from the quarter pole home. At 2-1 on the morning line, the Peter Miller-trained sophomore filly looks solid in the straight pool and in the various rolling exotics.
Saratoga Race No. 13 (6:52 p.m. ET/3:52 p.m. PT)
#1 Parnac (3-1)
French-bred filly was shuffled back at the start to trail, was fanned extremely wide when commencing her rally into the lane and kept to her task to wind up a willing fourth, beaten less than three lengths in her U.S. debut in July. Freshened and training very well in the interim for Christophe Clement, this 3-year-old won her first two career outings in Germany before being imported, and in this entry-level allowance grass miler from a good inside draw she is guaranteed an ideal, ground-saving trip. With Joel Rosario riding her back, she’s a Win play and rolling exotic single.
