Sword Dancer, Stay Thirsty, million dollar babies

4:01 PM: Chad Brown continued his onslaught with first time starters at this meet, picking up his 6th win of the meet with a debuting runner.

The Pick 4 is still one race away but it’s worth noting that #11 STAY THIRSTY appears as if he’ll be a heavy favorite in the first leg.  The daily double from the favorite in Race 7, #8 CHAIRMAN NOW, is paying a $10 bill as of this moment.

My pick is #9 BAATESH, who will be making his 2nd start on the turf after a credible debut sprinting at Belmont.  Good luck!

3:25 PM: It’s the 4th Saturday at Saratoga and we’re right in the midst of the 11 race program.  A couple of deep and competitive MSW races for 2YOs are coming up and the 7th is for older maidens going a mile on the inner turf.

The Sword Dancer is the featured event on this program and one scratch leaves us with a field of nine.  My top pick is #6 BEARPATH, who had a tough trip in the Man O’ War and looks to offer value in this wide-open field.

I’ll be back to check in throughout the day with various thoughts. As for the upcoming 6th race, #5 DYNAMIC HOLIDAY is my pick as he’s a half to Cat Park, a colt who won his turf debut for this outfit last fall at Keeneland.  #3 MY SPARKY is a firster worth a look as there’s some turf in the damside of his pedigree and the barn he hails from has scored with a debuting runner at each of the last two meets.  Good luck!
