SARATOGA Race #5

Bet this race at Diamond SportsTop pick: #2 (SANDRA'S MINE) (6-1) - One of several 4yos entered, she tired late at this level June 25 at Belmont in her first race since Nov. 11. Stalker probably needed that race and has run well here in the past facing tougher. She gets a slight edge.
2nd pick: #5 (Love Me Tomorrow) (9-2) - The main speed, she moves back to the grass and is shortening up a furlong. 3yo finished a pace-setting 2nd at this level on the Belmont turf June 25 and is a threat today on the front end.
3rd pick: #8 (Devil's Rendevous) (10-1) - Longshot had a wide trip when missing by two lengths at this level June 18 at Belmont. It was her first start in 10 months and was a positive effort. In the mix.
4th pick: #4 (Silent Empress) (7-2) - A debuting daughter of 'First Samurai,' she's from the barn of leading trainer Chris Clement, 11 of 32 (34%) at this meet. Working steadily, Clement has won at a 27% rate with first-time-starters over the past 19 months.
5th pick: #10 (Menzamenz) (10-1) - She missed by a 'nose' at this level June 18 at Belmont, but it was against a weak group, and she earned a low figure. 3yo can factor, but she needs to step it up today.
