SARATOGA Race #10

Bet this race at Diamond SportsTop pick: #6 (DEEPLY ANALYTICAL) (3-1) - This $270,000 purchase tired sprinting on the grass here facing much tougher when debuting a year ago. On the sidelines since, she has a new trainer, Jorge Abreu, and he drops her way down in class, switches her to the dirt, and is adding blinkers. She's spotted to win if ready, and Abreu is having a great meet (13-5-3-0, 38%).
2nd pick: #10 (Love Me Tomorrow) (5-1) - The main speed, she switches back to the dirt after a close up 3rd place finish sprinting on the local grass July 31. This 3yo draws a nice outside post at this 6.5-furlong trip and is a strong win candidate.
3rd pick: #8 (Gringotts) (6-1) - A homebred filly by 'Central Banker,' she has a very tough break and trip when beaten almost seven lengths here at this level going seven furlongs July 22. She's worked fast since, and I like that Joel Rosario stays aboard. A solid price play.
4th pick: #9 (Mia Bea Star) (8-1) - She tired facing tougher going longer here on the grass July 22. Down in class today while sprinting on the dirt, she draws well, and Jose Ortiz has the mount for the first time.
