By the Shores of Lake Saratoga…
Today's feature is the fifth race, the always entertaining Yaddo Stakes for New York-Bred fillies on the grass. However, this year's edition comes down to a two-filly battle between Gitchee Goomie (7-5) and Hessonite (8-5). As the early prices suggest, there's not much between them.
Hessonite has the recent winning reace over the course but Gitchee Goomie really loves it here and comes intoo this 45 days fresh; we'll err on the side of the fresh filly
Taking Gitchee Goomie to win, no price restrictions, and exacta box with Hessonite, and adding troubled-trip Dreaming Of Cara (20-1) to the exotic mix.
