SARATOGA Race #11

Bet this race at Diamond SportsTop pick: #8 (MOMMIE'S JEWEL) (5-1) - A homebred from the high-quality operation of Patricia Generazio, he finished a pace-setting 3rd here at this level and distance July 24. It was his second back following a 5.5-month layoff and first around two turns. Joel Rosario stays aboard, and I give this colt a slight edge.
2nd pick: #4 (Bricco) (3-1) - Competitive in all three starts, he finished a length in front of 'Mommie's Jewel' here at this level July 24. Trainer Jim Bond is having a great meet (25-7-3-4), and I could have easily made this homebred the top selection.
3rd pick: #6 (Michael's Bad Boy) (7-2) - This strong finisher has been sharp in both starts at this level after coming off a 6.5-month layoff June 6. Well backed in both, he completes what is a three-horse win mix.
4th pick: #1 (Perfect Banker) (15-1) - He's dropping into a claimer and is stretching out in distance both for the first time. The 3yo has a ground-saving post and may get a minor award at a big price.
