Not So Tiny Dancer


Today's Saratoga feature is the Grade 2 Lake George, a very competitive turf stakes for 3YO fillies at a mile and a sixteenth. The only conceivable issue is the weather, with late thunderstorms in the forecast as this is written.

When last seen at Belmont Park, Daring Dancer (3-1) was completely flat, never an issue at any point. But her races before at today's trip indicated she's a likely graded stakes winner to come; this looks like the right spot.

The speedy race shape suits her style, she has shown quality and courage to overcome trouble previously, and the slightly shorter trip should only strengthen her late kick.

Taking Daring Dancer to win at 5-2 or greater {on turf only]. and key-boxing exactas with stakes winning A Little Bit Sassy (5-2) and undefeated-on-turf Daring Kathy (6-1) and adding impressive maiden breaker Speed Seeker (8-1) to the super-exotics mix.

Number of Win-Place-Show Finishers: 478-305-242

Amount Wagered: $3,142 [to win only]

No More Excuses for Unbridled Forever


Today's G1 feature is the Coaching CLub American Oaks for 3YO fillies and it's a two-horse affair on paper. Stopchargingmaria (8-5) finished boldly to win the paceless Black-Eyed Susan and was freshened awaiting this, returning to the track of her maiden victory at 2.

But we're prefer Unbridled Forever (9-5) who returns to her desired two turns after losing contact early in the G1 Acorn and rallying wide and strongly for third. Prior to that, she faced Untapable twice; enough said there.

Taking Unbridled Forever to win, no price restrictions, an exacta box with the favorite, and adding Miss Besilu (6-1) and Taketheodds (8-1) to the super-exotics mix.

Number of Selections since 2007: 1568
