SARATOGA Race #6

Bet this race at Diamond SportsTop pick: #1 (SHESASUPERFREAK) (7-2) - She's been competitive in both starts since coming off just under a four-month layoff on July 31. This daughter of 'Shanghai Bobby' ran 3rd here at this level and distance last out, has the rail today, and this 4yo stalker gets a slight edge.
2nd pick: #6 (Kinky Socks) (4-1) - A lightly raced mare, she moves up in class and in with fellow New York-breds for this attempt. She's gone 4-2-2-0 since early March and was a winner here at this distance facing 'open' $16K claimers July 24. The 6yo is in career-best form and is a win candidate.
3rd pick: #5 (Bustin Scones) (3-1) - This filly raced evenly when finishing 4th here July 31. The 4yo was only a 'neck' behind 'Shesasuperfreak' that day and moves off the rail for this attempt. Competitive in three straight since a trainer change and a four-month layoff, this homebred is in the win mix.
4th pick: #3 (Single Verse) (8-1) - One of two 3yos entered, she has early speed and is racing third back off a seven-month layoff. She finished nine lengths behind 'Bustin Scones' at this level July 11 at Belmont, but she may narrow that margin considerably for the hot barn of Rob Atras.
