The Saratoga meet draws to a close on Monday. The final day’s card features one last Grade I affair: the Hopeful Stakes.
The race will be a showdown between a pair of sharp graded stakes winners: Bashford Manor (GIII) winner Classic Empire heads east to match skills with Sanford Stakes (GIII) winner Bitumen. Will one of them win? Will one of the five others spring the upset?
Head over to Picks and Ponderings, read my preview of the Hopeful Stakes, and end your Saratoga meet on the right note!
