SARATOGA Race #9 (THE ALYDAR STAKES)
Sunday 08/09 05:50 PM Eastern
Bet this race at Diamond SportsTop pick: #1 (ENDORSED) (2-1) - This talented 4yo has been freshened up since an even effort in the G1 Met Mile at Belmont July 4. Speed/stalker is working steadily, has positive experience at the Spa, and he has the best post in this two-turn contest.
2nd pick: #3 (Spinoff) (9-2) - A homebred by 'Hard Spun,' this 4yo from the Pletcher barn has stalking ability, fits on figures, and the best effort of his career came when he won here at this distance exactly one year ago. A win candidate.
3rd pick: #4 (It's All Relevant) (6-1) - This veteran knows how to win, he's 12 of 23 on the dirt and is seeking his fourth in a row. He's with Rudy Rodriguez for the second time, and this hard-hitting 7yo is very dangerous at a square price despite moving up in class.
