Saratoga: Fast and firm


  Mother Nature has cooperated with a third consecutive gorgeous Saturday, with no humidity and temperatures topping out in the mid-70s. Although it's supposed to become increasingly cloudy later on, rain isn't supposed to arrive until tonight.

  The 11-race card is highlighted by the Alabama Stakes, a battle between divisional leaders Devil May Care and Blind Luck that is the most important race of the meet in terms of championship implications.

  The Alabama is race 10, post time scheduled for 5:48 p.m. Eastern. It is the third leg of a $500k guaranteed pick-4 that begins with race 8 at 4:42 p.m.
