Saratoga Race No. 2 (1:37 p.m. ET/10:37 a.m. PT)

#1 Candle (5-1 ML)

Rookie is granddaughter of English Oaks winner Casual Look and is training well for Hall of Famer Shug McGaughey. Lures Joel Rosario and the rail for first asking. Win bet. Exacta boxes 1-3 and 1-10 with the Chad Brown trainees.

Saratoga Race No. 5 (3:16 p.m. ET/12:16 p.m. PT)

#6 Capital Structure (5-2 ML)

Should be best-equipped on pedigree and past performances to handle this 1-3/8 miles journey on turf. Has run best races on firm turf, so extra consideration if things stay dry and hard. Win bet.
