SARATOGA Race #4

Bet this race at Diamond SportsTop pick: #8 (THREEPOINTNINENINE) (3-1) - A lightly raced gelding by 'Jimmy Creed,' he tired late after setting a quick and pressured pace to finish 4th of 12, missing by just under two lengths here at this level and distance July 30. It was only his second start, first since debuting Feb. 17, and first on the grass. He gets top billing.
2nd pick: #7 (Disciplanarian) (2-1) - The morning-line and probable favorite, he's finished 3rd in two straight at this level and was a long 'neck' ahead of 'Threepointninenine' last out. This grey gelding is racing third back following almost a 3.5-month layoff and is a strong win candidate.
3rd pick: #6 (Boom Boom Kaboom) (7-2) - He chased the pace and held well to finish right behind 'Threepointninenine' and 'Disciplanarian' last out. It was his first in a claimer, he has a better post, and this $100K purchase is in the win mix.
4th pick: #2 (Freudian Analyst) (6-1) - Veteran maiden is making start #32 in quest of his first win. He was in the mix with the top three selections last out and earned a career-best figure. It's would only take minimal improvement for him to factor.
