SARATOGA Race #4 (NEW YORK STALLION SERIES)
Thursday 07/23 02:30 PM Eastern
Bet this race at Diamond SportsTop pick: #1 (FRESCO) (8-5) - The field's only maiden, she missed by a 'nose' going seven furlongs on the Belmont turf June 25. Competitive in her first pair facing 'open' company at Gulfstream, she has a ground-saving post, Irad Ortiz, Jr. aboard, and this homebred meets a weak group. She gets top billing.
2nd pick: #3 (Officer Hutchy) (10-1) - This filly tired here in a grass sprint this past Sunday and is brought back quickly by Linda Rice. Homebred went 4-2-2-0 before a four-month layoff and hasn't been as sharp in her return pair. Stalker is a threat at a square price with her 'A' game.
3rd pick: #6 (Nicky Scissors) (7-2) - On the sidelines since Feb. 23, she returns making her grass debut. and off a private trainer change to Brad Cox, 32 of 135 (24%) with new arrivals since Jan/ 1 of 2019.
