The Cornerstone of an Upset


Noble Cornerstone (4-1) has much going for his in today's John Morrissey for older state-bred sprinters. There's the fact he's batting .55 at the hybrid 6-1/2 furlong trip, he's making his second start off a very long layup, one that figures to move him forward and the spacing looks just right.

He's well posted outside, his style suits the conditions and potential race shape, and has upside potential given the maturation factor.

Taking Noble Cornerstone to win at 3-1 or greater and an exacta box with Palace (1-1), who is getting major class relief but lugs 124 in his prep for the G1 Forego.

Hoping the "best horse" is not the best on the day.

La Verdad the Honorable Thing to Do


Today's Spa feature is the G2 Honorable Miss for fillies and mares going 6 furlongs marking the local return of sprint champion Judy the Beauty (1-1). We think we can beat her, but don't expect to get rich doing so.

La Verdad (8-5) has a lot going for her: Linda Rice. a profitable 35% in graded events, has her in great form; 3-for-3 on the year. Her best distance is today's 6 furlongs (10-for-13) whereas Judy's is a tad longer. She gets three pounds from the champ, is quicker away from the barrier and she comes into Saratoga fresher than she did last year.

We're taking the speed of the speed, La Verdad, to win with no price restrictions, a boxed exacta with the favorite and using the sharp Street Story (5-1 to complete a virtually cold trifecta.
