Racing gets underway at Saratoga this weekend, and I take a look at the pair of graded stakes on their Saturday card.
For fans of the latest and greatest juveniles, the Sanford Stakes (GIII) has everything: an eleven-horse field that ranges from maiden winners to stakes winners, and a newer shooter who looks primed for his breakthrough performance. The Diana (GI), on the other hand, drew a compact field of seven turf route fillies and mares. Stephanie’s Kitten could well find her stride again, but there is upset potential here, too…especially since the other likely favourite, Tepin, might not be a nine-furlong filly.
Head on over to Picks and Ponderings, and take a dive into the Diana and the Sanford. Let me know in the comments there where you think I’m on point, or if there is anyone in these races who you like better!
