Don't forget to check out the Challenge page where we started the month with a mythical $1200 bankroll and attempt to increase that amount as the Saratoga season continues.


Bloodbath! 1-10. Winner in R4 [3.80]. Also, R4 ... ACB "D" scr x 16.60 t 34.20, and that's it.

License plate number players - or telephone numbers, or birthdates -- perhaps a select few of those made out on a day of longshots, many inexplicable. It was rough if your method of picking winners was to actually handicap.

Ooph! If there weren't only five more days I might be compelled to swear off betting for a few days - but with the meet-end around the corner, we'll forge ahead.

14,773 attended. Sunny, hot and humid.


Miguel Grau...Liked him last time and he ran OK. Another chance.
North Star Boy...Seems in good form and off that form is a likely contender.
Strret Fight...Perhaps the one to catch.
Perfect Union.

Hunt's Road...Interesting on the stretchout and the fact that other alternatives lack much to get excited about.
Battle of Evermore...Was facing stakes company when last seen on dirt.
Do a Legger...Will PRX form hold?

Annie Walker...Class drop for Jacobson.
Stolen Victory...Off the latest.
She's Marvy... Needs to rebound to a better effort with the drop down off the claim.

FOURTH RACE - $100K PG Johnson
Ava's Kitten...Sib Real Solution won first three in Italy. Went on to win [via DQ] the 2013 Arlington Million. Other sibs not as much though.
Finn's Girl...Expensive yearling purchase was a solid first-out winner - albeit at Delaware Park.
Thrilled...Good looking debut win.
Seaside Schiller.

She's Gifted...Hmm... will she show that speed on the comeback? Might be tough if able to to do so with the added maturity.
Mohawk Lily... Also has speed. Turf-to-dirt. Cuts back.
Dacoma...Tries turf but dangerous off the claim for Jacobson.
Lil Renegade.
She's All Even.

Spicy Blonde...Full sib Monn Town was 8,1,1,1 to start career (and had some trouble in the debut).
Ian Smith...Ran second in debut and winner came back to run third in a stake.
Strike Midnight...Worked 10.0 before and dam produced some precocious sibs.

Moon Over Cuzco...Further class drop and might be potent with that move and the speed shown earlier in the career.
Day Six...On the numbers.
Matusak...Tries turf but with some back class.
Lead Singer.
Inventor's Gate.
Finn's Quest.

Clearly Now...Not at the top of his game but one time graded stakes quality runner might be better than these.
Pulling Gs...Nice win here on 7/24.
Green Gratto...Slight cut back might prove productive.
Stormin Monarcho.
Meadowview entry.

Harlan's Honor...Flattered by Lady Shipman's two wins here.
Bella Kateri...Looks like the one to beat.
All Mine Tonight...Probably fits with these.

Weather Girl...Drops in for a tag off numbers that fit well here.
Ten Penny Princess...Just missed when dropped to this level.
Maggies Dance...First time to try state-breds.
Little Mary Ellen.
Saratoga by Design.

If we are interested in both halves of an entry -- in event of a scratch -- it is noted that way [in other words, both halves are named]. If only one-half of the entry is named, then we prefer that half and will move to our next pick listed [rather than the other half of the entry] in event of a scratch.
