Don’t Forget About Dyani

Today’s feature is a turf marathon featuring some long winded fillies attempting 12 furlongs in the Signature Stallions Waya Stakes. There is no question that Tom Proctor’s Snow Top Mountain (5-2) is the fastest on the Equiform scale but she appears vulnerable at the distance.

We’re opting for Dyani (5-1), which, while slower, has earned her best figures going long and more significantly broke her maiden on this turf course. She ships in off a very sharp score at Ellis Park and picks up the patient Julien Leparoux adept at making the last run a winning one.

Taking Dyani to win at 4-1 or greater and key boxing her in multiples with the favorite, Chris Clement’s marathon specialist Tarrip (3-1) and Gold D’oro (8-1), training purposefully for Bill Mott and might shake loose easily here.

Winner From On High

Today's featured Gleamng Stakes overnighter has attracted a couple of real nice three year old colts with lots of upside.

One of those is Eternal Ruler (8-1). Trainer Bobby Ribaudo has a good record at Saratoga with limited starters each year, making his opportunities count. After a promising U.S. debut, this filly was really compromised by an exceedingloy slow pace while stretching out--a very tough chore. The pace figures to be more lively here with the slight cutback in distance and the filly returns six weeks fresh ith the suddenly hot riding Rajiv Maragh.

Taking Eternal Ruler to win at 5-1 or greater and boxing him in the exacta with Seal Cove (5-2), coming off a Turf Decline Line for the hot McGaughey outfit, and Canaveral, making U.S. debut with sharp blowout for Team Donk-Johnny..

IF ON DIRT: Preachintothedevil (2-1)

Staying Out of the Trappe

Today's featured Alfred G Vanderbilt appears to be a coming out party for Trappe Shot (7-5) nationally. A win would make him one of the choices for the Breeders' Cup Sprint and it would be difficult to try to upset a horse that never has lost a race at the six furlong distance. Factor in that the speedy race shape and his outside draw plays to his strength.

Taking Trappe Shot to win, no price restrictions, and boxing him in the exacta with Apriority (3-1).
