SARATOGA Race #9 (THE QUICK CALL STAKES (G3))
Friday 07/24 05:45 PM Eastern
Bet this race at Diamond SportsTop pick: #2 (JACK AND NOAH) (2-1) - Very fast from the gate, he was a gate-to-wire winner going six furlongs at Belmont in the $80,000 Sir Cat Stakes June 19. It was his second back off just under a four-month break, and he had missed by a 'head' in his return at Churchill May 17. Grey colt gets a slight edge.
2nd pick: #8 (Turned Aside) (5-2) - A homebred by 'American Pharoah,' he finished 2nd, a length behind 'Jack and Noah' at Belmont June 19. It was a solid effort off almost a seven-month layoff, and he's a win candidate today.
3rd pick: #4 (Old Chestnut) (5-1) - No speed type was two lengths behind 'Jack and Noah' and one back of 'Turned Aside' June 19 at Belmont. From the same barn (Mark Casse) as 'Jack and Noah,' he'll need some pace help for any chance at pulling an upset.
