SARATOGA Race #3
Friday 07/24 02:20 PM Eastern
Bet this race at Diamond SportsTop pick: #6 (VOTING AGREEMENT) (3-1) - She raced both wide and evenly when finishing 3rd at this level going six furlongs at Belmont June 5. It was her first since winning her debut here at this trip on August 9, and trainer Chad Brown has her making back-to-back starts for the first time. I give this daughter of 'More Than Ready' a slight edge.
2nd pick: #2 (Peaceful) (2-1) - Competitive in all five attempts, each has come sprinting on the turf. The 4yo finished a pace-setting 2nd at this level June 28 at Belmont in her first start since Oct. 12. Filly has a flexible style and is a win candidate.
3rd pick: #1 (Stop War) (5-1) - Trainer Chris Clement comes off a great meet at Belmont and has won with nine of 20 starters (45%) over the first six days of this meet. This homebred by 'War Front' tired to finish 4th after setting the pace June 28 at Belmont in her first since a maiden going a mile at Tampa Bay Downs March 7. Filly has the rail, a flexible style, and Irad Ortiz, Jr., who won six races here yesterday stays aboard.
4th pick: #3 (Sparkling Sky) (3-1) - A $650,000 daughter of 'More Than Ready,' she makes her first start since Nov. 3 and first off a private trainer change to Horatio DePaz. Working steadily, she's a strong finisher and may factor if ready.
