Circle Marks the Spot in the Waya


Remember when we talked about how difficult the Diana, for fillies and mares on turf, was? Well, today's Waya at 1-1/2 miles is a killer of a puzzle.

We're going to settle on Inimitable Romanee (9-2) from the white hot Graham Motion shed. State-bred filly is getting some class relief dropping out of a Grade 2, stretches to her best distance, the spacing is good and she's never been off the board in four Spa starts. Her figures are consistently competitive, too.

Taking Inimitable Romanee to win at 4-1 or greater and an exacta box with the very sharp English Class (6-1).

Number of Selections since 2007: 1579

Number of Win-Place-Show Finishers: 481-306-242

Amount Wagered: $3,160 [to win only]

With Malice Aforethought


As everyone knows, today's big race is the Grade 1 Whitney Handicap. None of the horses need any introductions at this point.

To me, Palace Malice (1-1) has too many weapons to get beat; the only negative is carrying co-highweight of 123 pounds.

We're taking Palace Malice to win, no price restrictions, and exacta box with the peaking Departing (6-1), and adding price shot Itsmyluckyday (12-1) to the super-exotics mix.

Number of Selections since 2007: 1578

Number of Win-Place-Show Finishers: 481-306-242

Amount Wagered: $3,158 [to win only]

The Best Things in Saratoga Are Free


Today's feature at 5-1/2 furlongs on the turf is a beauty, the Caress Stakes for sprinting fillies and mares. On paper, the three highweights are the ones to beat and, of those, it's Free As a Bird who catches the eye most.

Yes, Madame Giry (7-2) does have those three course wins and Jewel of the Cat won the Coronation Cup (8-1) here last year under today's conditions but Free As a Bird has really come to hand at 5. She has brilliant speed if necessary, big kick when she wants, has a (3) 2-1-0 slate beneath Rosario, and inside draw and a string of bullet works for her Spa return. In short, all the weapons.

Taking Free As a Bird (5-2) to win, at early line odds or greater, and key-boxing her first and second in exactas with her rivals here.

Number of Selections since 2007: 1577

Number of Win-Place-Show Finishers: 480-306-242

Amount Wagered: $3,156 [to win only]

Total Dollar Return on Investment: $3,245.10

Profit to Date: $89.10
