Saratoga Race 5

Hoping the storm arrives after this race is run. My selection is No. 11 Bellamy Knows. This lightly raced filly broke her maiden on Independence Day at Belmont. The speed figure was adequate enough and she is now trained by Rob Atras, who’s stats are impressive. When paired with jockey Manuel Franco, they win 29 percent of their races. No. 12 Decorated Ace will be the likely favorite and for good reason. She has a first and second here at this meet, and Tampa based trainer Mike Dini loves bringing horses to The Spa.

My Pick: Win/Place 11 Exacta Box 11-12
