Experience Matters

Today's main attraction at Saratoga is the Grade 2 Sanford for juvenile colts. The fillies had their chance opening day, today it's the boys' turn.

There were two very impressive maiden breakers at Belmont; All In Blue (2-1) from the same Pletcher barn that swept all three Saturday stakes. He made a strong mid-move on the turn and drew off without urging. The other was Wired Bryan (5-1), who handled a severe challenge on the turn, was resurgent, before drawing off in deep stretch.

But it's Debt Ceiling (5-2) that is preferred for his three-race experience, his ability to handle any track in any state, dry or wet. He also has experience at today's distance.

Taking Derby Ceiling to win at 2-1 or greater and key-boxing him in exactas with his rivals here.
