SARATOGA Race #2

Bet this race at Diamond SportsTop pick: #2 (KEOTA) (8-5) - She rallied to miss by a 1/2-length at this level going six furlongs at Belmont July 3. It was her first race in three months and first off a private trainer change to Chad Brown. I give her a slim edge.
2nd pick: #6 (Jades Kelly) (2-1) - Lightly raced and speedy, this 3yo was only a 1/2-length behind 'Keota' at Belmont at this level July 3. Working fast since, she shortens up a 1/2-furlong, and is a strong win candidate.
3rd pick: #4 (Grudge) (9-2) - Fast from the gate, she was involved every step when she missed by just under a length here at this distance facing $40K claimers at the 2l condition. By far a career-best, she rounds out the three-horse mix.
