SARATOGA Race #8 (THE NEW YORK STALLION SERIES)
Thursday 08/06 05:15 PM Eastern
Bet this race at Diamond SportsTop pick: #6 (JOLTING JOE) (2-1) - The field's only maiden, he ships from Ellis Park where he missed by a 'head' when facing eleven rivals at this distance July 25. It was his first start since Nov. 2 and the fourth straight time he was in the runner-up spot. He's facing fellow New York-breds for the first time and gets top billing here.
2nd pick: #5 (Dream Bigger) (7-2) - A multiple stakes winner on the dirt, he's gone 8-3-3-2 on it, and this speedy grey colt is racing on the grass for the first time. In shape, he's a very strong win candidate if he likes the surface switch.
3rd pick: #1 (Fresco) (3-1) - One of two fillies entered, she broke her maiden here at this distance in a $100K stakes facing her own sex July 23. From the barn of the leading trainer at this meet (Chris Clement), she's a threat despite facing males in this attempt.
