SARATOGA Race #2
Sunday 08/30 01:45 PM Eastern
Bet this race at Diamond SportsTop pick: #2 (BLOOD MOON) (8-5) - This well-bred colt is taking a big drop in class for this attempt. He's finished 3rd here in two straight at this trip facing $50K starter-allowance foes and drops today to a $16,000 price tag. He's the horse to beat.
2nd pick: #6 (Fried Rice King) (7-2) - A lightly raced 3yo by 'Bernardini,' he was bred and is owned by celebrity chef Bobby Flay. He finished far back of 'Blood Moon' here July 17, but he had no chance after a very poor beginning. Training above average since, he's from the barn of Todd Pletcher and should factor in this spot.
3rd pick: #3 (Buona Fina) (3-1) - He broke his maiden here at this distance Aug. 2 racing for a $30K price tag. Improving and lightly raced, he's a threat right back in his first facing winners.
