SARATOGA Race #8

Bet this race at Diamond SportsTop pick: #3 (CONTROL GROUP) (8-5) - This hard-hitting veteran is seeking his 14th career victory and 3rd in a row at this meet. That pair has come at this nine-furlong trip, with his latest Aug. 5 at this level, his first off an Orlando claim. Trainer is 9 for 21 (43%) at this meet and I give this 6yo a slight edge.
2nd pick: #5 (Our Last Buck) (2-1) - A lightly raced 6yo, he's been sharp in four straight and is in career-best form. He missed by a 'neck' at this level going a mile at Belmont July 10, and is stretching out around two-turns for the first time. A win candidate.
3rd pick: #1 (Freaky Styley) (9-2) - Well-bred 4yo has gone 5-2-3-0 to date and enters seeking his 3rd win in a row. On the sidelines since Feb 29, this one run type is training steadily, has the rail, and is from another barn (Jorge Abreu), that's having a great meet 21-6-3-2 (29%).
