No Kantharos?  Phew!

Believe it or not, there are times when you can go from a Grade 3 to a Grade 2 and perhaps get some class relief while stepping up.

That’s because Lou Brissie (3-1) faced the two best juveniles seen on this side of the Mississippi thus far: Boys At Tosconova and Kantharos. Lou defeated “Boys” in the Kentucky Juvenile, but was no match for Kantharos in the Bashford Manor.

Lou Brissie is meeting some potentially very good colts here, but he has three races worth of experience, already has raced six furlongs, and has been stakes

Taking Lou Brissie to win at 2-1 or greater and key boxing him in exactas with Bail Out the Cat (2-1), an impressive maiden winner on sealed mud at Belmont, and Chipshot (7-2), a smart maiden winner at Monmouth, his third different surface in as many starts.

Grade 1 Filly for a Grade 1 Race

Today’s feature at Saratoga Race Course is the transplanted Coaching Club American Oaks, run at a new distance of nine furlongs. Call it an Alabama prep. Either way, favorite Devil May Care (6-5) will be hell to pay.

Stretching out to her best distance, around a preferred second turn, and coming off a new pace top, she rates to run a lifetime best figure here. Her competition is strong but she’s proven Grade 1 classy and, after all, trainer Todd “wants his title back.”

Taking Devil May Care to win, no price restrictions, and making an exacta box with fresh, Black-Eyed Susan winner, Acting Happy (5-1).
