Double Grade 1 Fun

Since there are two Grade 1s on the final Saturday of the meet at Saratoga 2012, we'll make two selections and each will count separately in the running totals.

In the Forego, we think Emcee (9-2) will benefit greatly from a post position shift to near the outside of a small field, stretching to his preferred distance, and dynamics indicate he'll get an optimal trip stalking the speedy Pacific Ocean. That's the way we're drawing it up, anyway.

In the Woodward, a two horse affair between the favorites and we'll vote with our hearts for Mucho Macho Man (8-5), who certainly has done little wrong this seasopn while his Equiform figures keep improving in incremental fashion. But we must give To Honor And Serve a mulligan for his latest. Heat and humidity or not, that certainly wasn't him in the Suburban.

We're on record with MMM but will box the exacta and add Spa-loving Cease to the exotic mix.

Running Totals: (1156) 356-223-173 Total Dollar Return: $2,444.50 [win selections only]
