Saratoga Race 8

An optional claiming race that in our opinion, has beatable favorite(s). Top choice is No. 1 Ruler of the Nile. This horse has “paired up” two nice sheet figures including a win here on July 13th.  He had an excuse in his last race as he was bumped at the break and shuffled to the back.  No question he likes his photograph taken as he’s won three of his last four races. No. 3 American Power did a Chic (Freak Out) his last race at Parx. It was a huge performance and hopefully he’s recovered from that effort. No. 5 Mr. Dougie Fresh has competed with much better company than this.  He’s the “other” Jason Servis horse.

My Pick:   Win/Place 1  Exacta Box 1-3-5  Trifecta Box 1-3-4-5
