SARATOGA Race #2

Bet this race at Diamond SportsTop pick: #1 (DAWN) (2-1) - He's racing second back off a layoff, is switching from grass to dirt, and drops to a new low. Nicely spotted by Danny Gargan, the colt is working well locally and gets top billing.
2nd pick: #10 (Brunate) (5-1) - He rallied to finish 2nd at this level going 6.5 furlongs at Belmont and draws a nice post today out of the seven-furlong chute. Clearly improving, he's dangerous today.
3rd pick: #11 (Imperio D) (8-1) - One of two entered by Rudy Rodriguez, he rallied late to finish 3rd, five lengths behind 'Brunate' last out. He has a better post today and is capable of factoring at a square price.
4th pick: #7 (Fridaybeers) (6-1) - Lightly raced 3yo tired last out when going longer on the grass while facing tougher June 28. The second from the Rodriguez barn, he has early speed and is making back-to-back starts for the first time. In the mix.
