More Free Picks
Race 2 - Starter Allowance $50,000 (Purse - $55,000)
Six fillies and mares 3-to-5-year-old fillies and mares will go five-and-one-half furlongs on the turf. #4 Grudge is stepping in class after getting caught, after leading by two lengths, down the stretch by two foes to finish third against $40,000 claimers. Despite not finishing well, the new York filly showed tremendous improvement over her first race of 2020 and the ESpeed of 89 is a career-high. #6 Jades Gelly makes her debut at Saratoga after finishing third in her last two meets at Belmont and Gulfstream. Jades Gelly, who is also making her first start at this distance, has reached the podium in four of six grass races. #7 Overheated showed an improved effort in his first start following a four-month layoff in a one and one-sixteenth mile event on the dirt. This will be Overheated’s first start on the turf in 2020.
Picks: I like an exacta box of #4, 6.
Race 7 - Allowance Optional Claiming $62,500 (Purse -$76,000)
Eight fillies and mares will go one and three-eighth miles on the turf. #3 Dyna Pass has been running extremely well since breaking her maiden eight starts back. The 4-year-old daughter of Lemon Drop Kid has cashed in 60% of her turf races and won her only race this year two starts back against $25,000 optional claimers. #7 Tass returns to Saratoga for the first time in a year. The 4-year-old Kentucky filly, coming off a fifth-place finish in the Robert G. Dick Memorial Stakes, has three wins and five top 3 finishes overall in seven starts on the grass. #8 Mighty Scarlet has reached the podium in three of her last four starts.
Picks: I like a win bet on the #3. I also like a trifecta box of #3, #8, #7.
Race 8 -New York Stallion Stakes (Purse -$100,000)
Six 3-year-old males and females will go one and one-sixteenth miles on the turf. This should be an excellent race. I like #4 Turbo Drive to win followed by #3 Zipalong with #3 Fresco and #6 Jolting Joe to be in contention to grab a piece of the action
Picks: I like a win bet on the #4. I also like a show bet on the #3.
