SARATOGA Race #5

Bet this race at Diamond SportsTop pick: #4 (CLASSIC LADY) (2-1) - Consistent mare missed by a 'nose' at Belmont in a similar stakes going a mile July 2. It was her first race since Nov. 11, and the horse that defeated her is the hard-hitting 'Fifty-Five.' A 5yo daughter of 'Jimmy Creed,' she's 3-0-2-1 on the Saratoga turf and gets a slim edge today.
2nd pick: #1 (War Canoe) (9-5) - This veteran mare finished 3rd July 2 at Belmont in her first race since Nov. 15. She was a bit over a length behind 'Classic Lady' in her return in what was her first for trainer Chad Brown. 7yo has the rail, Irad Ortiz, Jr. stays aboard, and this consistent runner is a win candidate.
3rd pick: #7 (Vortex Road) (5-1) - The main speed, she's finished 2nd in three straight and is 22-6-7-1 overall on the grass. 6yo has proven capable against this type in the past, and she's tough to get by if able to get an early lead. In the mix.
