Shipman Begins Final Spa Weekend


Speed is always dangerous, it is said, and no runner looks more dangerous than Saratoga Snacks (5-2) as he stretches his speed two turns here with little early competition, at least on paper.

The Tale of the Cat ridgling has regained his form since returning to the Sciacca barn and Johnny is sure to ration his speed before bracing for the challenge sure to come from Zivo (7-5), who might be making his season's debut but is exiting three straight Grade 1s in his state-bred return here for Chad Brown, fittingly reuniting with Jose Ortiz.

Taking Saratoga Snacks to win at 2-1 or greater and an exacta box with Zivo.

Taking Graham’s Girl in the PG


Today's feature is the P.G. Johnson for juvenile fillies going a mile and a sixteenth on turf and it brings together a couple of good-looking maiden-debut winners. Of those we prefer the Graham Motion ship-in, Finn's Girl (5-2).

A $600K yearling, she took a while to get into gear then showed a good turn of foot to reach contention and a strong finish to get it done with energy in reserve. She owns a two-sided distance pedigree, suitable for the stretch-out from 7-1/2 furlongs.

Taking Finn's Girl to win, no price restrictions, and key-boxing exactas with Harmonize (4-1) and Ava's Kitten (7-2).

We Like What We See Here


Today's With Anticipation, a Grade 2 for 2-year-old colts, drew only a handful of entrants and it appears to us that Site Read (2-1) is the reason for this. We suggest you find the replay over his winning debut over this course and decide for yourself. He was dominating.

The running time was very solid and on paper, despite the small field, there seems to be enough speed signed on. Apparently, trainer Bill Mott sold an interest in this colt to a few of his clients. He should be motivated enough to keep them, and us, happy here.

Taking Site Read to win, no price restrictions, and an exacta box with Monster Bea (5-2), who also changed hands following a winning turf and course debut.
