SARATOGA Race #9

Bet this race at Diamond SportsTop pick: #3 (SHARP STARR) (7-2) - This lightly raced homebred stretches out around two-turns in her first facing winners. A Schwartz homebred by 'Munnings,' she was a sharp five-length maiden winner going a mile at Belmont July 2. Promising filly faces a tougher task, but I like her chances.
2nd pick: #7 (Eloquent Speaker) (3-1) - Another that's lightly raced and is facing winners for the first time. She was a winner going six furlongs at Belmont June 12 and was 7.5 lengths in front of a very wide 'Sharp Starr' that afternoon. $100,000 daughter of 'Flatter' is stretching out in distance, is working fast, and is dangerous today.
3rd pick: #6 (Princess Pinky) (6-1) - A $275,000 daughter of 'Ghostzapper,' she finished 3rd going a mile at Belmont June 25 in her first race in 13.5 months. One run type has ability and is capable of factoring with some improvement.
4th pick: #1 (Courageous Girl) (15-1) - Longshot tired to finish last of five in a $100K stakes for state-breds going seven furlongs at Belmont June 28. With nine starts, she doesn't have the same room for upside as either 'Sharp Starr' or 'Eloquent Speaker,' but she has the best post and may land a minor award at a big price.
