SARATOGA Race #10 (THE H. ALLEN JERKENS STAKES (G1))
Saturday 08/01 06:20 PM Eastern
Bet this race at Diamond SportsTop pick: #8 (THREE TECHNIQUE) (8-1) - This talented colt has been on the sidelines since finishing 4th at Oaklawn on a sloppy track in the G2 Rebel stakes on March 14. Working very fast for his return, he's two for two at this distance, and this strong finisher should receive a favorable pace set-up.
2nd pick: #6 (No Parole) (2-1) - He's a perfect five for five when sprinting and was an easy gate-to-wire win of the G1 Woody Stephens Stakes at this distance June 20 at Belmont. Working fast, he's a very obvious win candidate.
3rd pick: #5 (Mischievious Alex) (6-1) - He tired after a poor break to finish 4th, 5.5 lengths behind 'No Parole' in the G1 Woody Stephens at Belmont June 20. Working fast, this talented colt is a win candidate with a trouble-free beginning.
4th pick: #10 (Captain Bombastic) (20-1) - This longshot is an uncoupled barn-mate of 'Three Technique' as both are trained by Jeremiah Englehart. The state-bred moves way up in class after winning a stakes at this distance for fellow New York foals June 14 at Belmont. The colt is capable of getting a share at a big price.
5th pick: #4 (Echo Town) (5-1) - One of three entered by Steve Asmussen, he finished 2nd to 'No Parole' in the Woody Stephens June 20 and was two in front of a troubled 'Mischievous Alex.' Working fast locally, he must be left in the mix.
