SARATOGA Race #8 (THE DIANA HANDICAP (G1))
Sunday 08/23 05:20 PM Eastern
Bet this race at Diamond SportsTop pick: #3 (RUSHING FALL) (2-1) - A multiple G1 winner of just under $2.3M, she's one of two entered by Chad Brown. This 5yo mare has won both starts this year after coming off an eight-month layoff June 3. She finished 2nd in this stakes a year ago and is the horse to beat in this one.
2nd pick: #5 (Sister Charlie) (5-2) - The second of the pair from Chad Brown, this Irish import has no early speed but is two for two at this distance, and she was a winner of this stakes a year ago. A fast and/or contested pace would help her chances out.
3rd pick: #4 (Starship Jubilee) (9-2) - This veteran mare has gone 11-7-3-1 over the past two years and has gotten better with age. The 7yo has a flexible style, more early speed than 'Sister Charlie,' and is a win candidate in this small field.
