Featured Track/Race:   Saratoga – Race 1 
Race overview:  A seemingly modest NYB MSW for 2yofs routing 1 1/16 miles on the inner turf. 
Pace:  It figures to be honest, as there are several first-time starters entered, along with more than a few stretch out sprinters. 
Trends:  There’s nothing to lean on with the turf, as it’s had plenty of give to it throughout the meet, though the inner is usually kinder to speed types, with the tighter turns.  
Best Play:  #6 ONCE AN EAGLE (turf only): Homebred was loaded entering the far turn of her debut but never got a seam, a chance to run, or out of 3rd gear, so it’s a total tossout, though it’s also quite evident she has a world of talent too. 
Bet Types:    Aggressive WP bet and single to kick off the early Pk5 as well. 
POD/Meet Stats:  Sar Meet Overall: 191-43-40-32 ($1.68/$5.07) 

Sar POD: 17-3-4-1 ($1.54 /$4.24)
