Saratoga Race 5 (3:21 pm ET)

#2 Luni Sima (8-1 ML)

Rare 1-1/8 miles dirt race at Saratoga for 2-year-olds filled with horses who didn't show any early speed in sprint races. This one has tactical speed and a great, inside post 2 draw that leading jockey Luis Saez will be sure to take advantage of. Win-place bet. Exacta box 2-4 and 2-8 with the expected favorites.



Saratoga Race 9 (5:39 PM ET)

#9 Amy C (6-1 ML)

Unique race restricted to horses who have not won a stakes race at a mile distance or longer in their lifetime. This filly won a stakes in France at 119 yards short of a mile and faced much tougher competition in her previous Saratoga try. Win-place bet.
