Not an exciting first stakes of Saratoga 146, the Grade 2 Schuylerville which has attracted a field of five juvenile fillies.
How is one to stop Fashion Alert? You might be able to; I can't.
Not only is this Pletcher-Velazquez team production the fastest on paper, by a wide margin, but her dominating win was scored in Belmont's Astoria Stakes. Not a bad way to start a career.
She has early speed, good position outside in this small field and Johnny can play if off the break any way he chooses.
Taking Fashion Alert to win, no price restrictions, and a cold triple completed by Tulira's Star and Take Charge Brandi (6-1).
