SARATOGA Race #2

Bet this race at Diamond SportsTop pick: #2 (MILLS) (5-1) - This old-timer finished 3rd here at this level facing a bit tougher at this distance July 19. 10yo is racing third back off a three-month break, draws a better post today, and drops a bit. He gets a slim edge.
2nd pick: #7 (Walkoff) (5-2) - This logical win candidate enters off a pair of solid efforts at Belmont after returning from a four-month layoff. Speed/stalker runs first off a Mike Maker claim, and he has leading rider Irad Ortiz, Jr. aboard.
3rd pick: #5 (Curlin Grey) (2-1) - The morning-line favorite, this no speed type ships from Churchill Downs and drops in class for his first ever on the NYRA circuit. He fits with his best, and a fast and/or contested pace would help his chances.
4th pick: #4 (Shadow Rider) (15-1) - He finished far behind 'Mills' last out but had no chance after rushing up following a troubled break. The once classier type has won at this trip in the past and is capable of getting a share at a big price.
