Saratoga 7th 

Opening day at the Spaaaa (miss Tom Durkin). This is a state bred allowance race on turf. Our view is that this race is very wide open and with that said, the top choice is No. 10 Sky Kitten. Although she raced wide and faded in her last, the folks at Thorograph gave her an excellent speed figure. This is also her third race off of a layoff. No. 1 Astoria Kitten will be on the fence which is an advantage on the inner turf. No. 4 Mint Maus is another long shot with a chance here. Her last two races have been quite better.
