SARATOGA Race #3

Bet this race at Diamond SportsTop pick: #7 (AMERICAN MANDATE) (3-1) - This race has been taken 'off the turf' and switched to the main track labeled Muddy. This colt finished 2nd at this level and distance at Churchill Downs on a wet-fast surface June 28. He has the best main track form and he should be able to run down the leaders in the final 1/16th of a mile.
2nd pick: #2 (Montauk Daddy) (4-1) - One of two entered by Linda Rice, this speedy colt moves back to the dirt for only the second time. He finished 2nd that day debuting in late June of last year and is dangerous today as early speed always has an advantage on 'off' going.
3rd pick: #6 (Cryogenic) (5-2) - Old-timer is clearly better on the grass, but has won once on the dirt in the past and enters in sharp form on the turf. 5yo has a one run style and is capable of factoring in this small field.
