Graded Doubleheader at the Spa

Two features at Saratoga this afternoon, both graded: the G1 Diana and G2 Jim Dandy.

It's doubtful the group will allow Tapitsfly another extremely soft pace and the bias here is not as strong. Winter Memories (9-5) is just a wonderful filly and rates the call. Taking Winter Memories to win the Diana, no price restrictions, and key boxing her first and second in exotics with Hungry Island (5-1) and Zagora (5-2).

Many of the eight horses in the Jim Dandy are on the come, such as Teeth of the Dog (5-1) and, finally, Liaison (7-2). But we're taking the returning Alpha (5-2), the accomplished pole sitter reunting with Ramon. No price restrictions on Alpha to win, but keying him first and second in exactas with his two main rivals here.

Running Totals: (1125) 345-218-169 Total Dollar Return: $2,373.20 [win selections only
