Saratoga: Fast and firm


  Fast and firm to start the final four weeks of the Spa meet. Day #17 offers a cheapish-looking nine-race card that features exactly one non-claiming race for open company - a six-horse third-level allowance route on the main track that goes as race 8.

  The "feature" is the "Cab Calloway" division of the New York Stallion (race 5), where Lubash is the only two-time winner among 10 New York-bred 3-year-olds going 1 1/16 miles on the inner turf.
