Barish’s Free Pick for Saratoga


Race 5

An allowance-optional claiming race on turf. Top choice is No. 2 Opt. He ran so well his last race but painfully 7 paths wide. No. 1 Evaluator raced very well here last year. He hasn’t raced since but returns for hot trainer James Bond. He’s also been gelded. No. 5 Rinaldi, the other Bond horse had a good tune up for this race.

The Pick: Win/Place 2 Exacta Box 1-2-5 Trifecta Box 1-2-5-8
