Saratoga: Pletcher & Velazquez again


  Todd Pletcher and John Velazquez teamed up for yet another winner when second-time starter Ginger Snapit (5th, 3.30) posted a popular front-running win over maiden sprinters.

  It was the 35th win at the meet for Pletcher, equaling the record total he established in 2003 and again in 2004. He needed 39 days to do it, however, as opposed to 36 days in 2003-04.

  Velazquez widened his lead to 56-52 over Javier Castellano.

  Speaking of Velazquez, when was the last time you saw him on a 30-1 morning-line horse? His first call in race 8, Glory in Motion, didn't make it in from the also-eligibles, and his second call, the David Donk-trained Clearly Perfect, is 30-1.
