Track Saratoga
Race 8
Overview A strong edition of the G1 Forego, but also a race where it looks like several could regress, while one may be ready to move forward in a big way.
Pace For a 7F legitimate G1, it doesn’t look overly hot, as #3 Lexitonian will be going and there’s no one else confirmed to be on the lead, which puts #7 TAUPON (5-2) in the perfect spot from the perfect outside attack post.
Trends You better be close on this main track, and with all the G1s today you can surmise that’s even that much more important, as typically tracks likes to have the main track really souped up on a big day.
Number 7
Morning Line (5-2)
Best Bet Overview #7 YAUPON (5-2): Spa lover (2-for-2) got the perfect comeback from a Dubai layoff at Pim last time, so he should move forward in a big way, and this outside attack post is ideal for his pressing style.
