Saratoga Race 7
Saratoga Springs resembled the Amazon Rain Forest yesterday. Today’s conditions are a residual effect of that weather. This race was moved off the turf course and shortened in distance to seven furlongs. NYRA should name the race the “Bruce Levine Muddy Derby.” No. 9 Blame it on Mom is my top choice and one of trainer Levine’s entries. She ran well on an “off” track in June at Belmont. Looking for a forward placement by Rosario. Levine’s other runner is No. 14 Lady Macho was only going to run (entered for main track only) in these type of conditions. She’s never been worse than 4th and picks up leading jockey Jose Ortiz. Let’s round out the exacta with No. 10 Tatterazi. Second start for a filly that has real race experience. Don’t expect whopper prices from this selection. This is a card that has been greatly affected by the weather.
My Pick: Win 9 Exacta Box 9-10-14
