Saratoga Race 2
  • Purse - $35,000

  • Distance - 1 mile

  • Track - Dirt/Fast

We get two horses here that really stick out and have a great shot to win as the #2 and #4 horse will look to battle it out late. Ampersand (#2) will most likely get out early from the start with Irad Ortiz Jr. on board. Since being reported as gelding, this horse has been able to show some early speed which can also be seen from its workouts. However, running this distance 6 times in its career, it has come up short every time by placing 2nd three times and 3rd twice. What we will focus on here is Manuel Franco on Once a Giant (#4) which will be reported as a first time gelding in this race. As we look at this horses workout since the gelding, we have seen very impressive signs of speed. With the type of speed this horse already possesses, this could be one of its better races coming up as it has ran this distance three times and won once which was on a good track. First time gelding with speed, getting a fast track? The #4 horse has some nice value here at current odds of 5/2.

Pick - WIN #4 (Once a Giant)
