Today's Adirondack Stakes favorite looks, well, like a layover. It’s not so much that her performance figure is far superior to the group, which it is, but her energy distribution was excellent. It appears that she’s been very well educated.

We’ll key-box her two rivals with more experience; 2-2 Calder shipper Salamera and an undefeated filly that’s Churchill based but has won at two other tracks, Tom Amoss’ well traveled Cayllano.

It’s much the same story in the Saratoga Special with one notable exception. Shanghai Bobby owns the superior figure but it’s Spurious Decision that intrigues us more.

His debut on this race was first rate, his figure puts him within a couple lengths of ‘Bobby’ but it’s the individual that impresses most.

We haven’t seen too many live 2-year-old races this season but this is a big, athletic animal with an imposing presence. He might not beat Bobby today, that’s why we’re taking an exacta box, but he might have the better future. We shall see.

We're going on record with Kauai Katie to win the Adirondack, no rice restrictions, and key-boxing exactas with Salamera and Cayllano. We're taking a Saratoga Special exacta box of 3-6 and a win bet on Spurious Precision at 5-2 or greater.
