2020-EAST-COAST Season Horse Racing Past Picks
August 02, 2020
SARATOGA Race #9 (THE BIRDSTONE STAKES)
Sunday 08/02 05:45 PM Eastern
Bet this race at Diamond SportsTop pick: #6 (MORETTI) (2-1) - One of two entered by Todd Pletcher, and the pair race uncoupled. He was an easy winner going 11 furlongs at Belmont in the Flat Out Stakes, and he followed that up with a 2nd place finish in the Suburban Stakes (G2) July 4. The horse to beat.
2nd pick: #2 (You're to Blame) (6-1) - The second of the Pletcher trained pair, he raced very wide finishing nine lengths in back of barn-mate 'Moretti' last out. Stalker fits with his best and should be saving all the ground in this spot. Price play completes a strong hand from the Hall of Famer.
3rd pick: #5 (American Tatoo) (4-1) - Calumet runner has good early speed and is training steadily for his first since March 28. Trainer Jack Sisterson won a pair here yesterday, and this 5yo will take them as far as he can on the lead. Not out of the question.
