Summer has officially found its stride. After all, racing action returns to Saratoga this weekend.
Picks and Ponderings turns it attention this week to the pair of graded stakes on Saturday at the Spa. In the Grade 1 Diana Stakes, a select field of six — including proven star Lady Eli and rising stars Antonoe and Dickinson — will tussle for the honour of becoming the first top-level winner of the Saratoga meet. One race before that, eight juveniles will clash in the Sanford Stakes. All entrants have a win to their name — Direct Dial and Admiral Jimmy have stakes experience, but whoever wins the Sanford will tally the first added-money victory of their career.
Head over to Picks and Ponderings, read my preview of Saturday’s pair of graded stakes races at Saratoga, and let me know your thoughts in the comments!
