Featured Track/Race:   Saratoga – Race 7 
Race overview:  A predictably deep and competitive AOC for f/ms going 1 1/8 miles on the Mellon Turf. 
Pace:  It looks a bit muddled, especially since a lot of these may not want to run this far, so expect a tight group and a sprint off the far turn. 
Trends:  There’s really nothing to lean on with the turf, as it’s had plenty of give to it throughout the meet, though it has been pretty noticeable that the inside paths seem to be preferred.  
Best Play:  #1 IDEA GENRATION (4-1): Brown miss got the perfect tightener at Belmont, when she was a solid 2nd in her return, which was likely a race to get her to this one, so expect a big move forward today. 
Bet Types:    Aggressive WP bet and single in the late Pk5, and to kick off the Pk4 as well. 
POD/Meet Stats:  Sar POD: 17-3-4-1 ($1.54 /$4.24)
