Crist: Hall of Fame Stakes Analysis


If you have a good grass 3-year-old this time of year, you can send him a mile and a quarter for $500k in the G1 Secretariat at Arlington Aug. 16 or for $200k at a mile and a sixteenth in today’s G2 Hall of Fame Stakes at Saratoga. The Arlington race usually draws a few European who excel at the distance and generally outclass the U.S. runners, one reason Bobby’s Kitten is the 7-5 favorite in today’s Hall of Fame instead of trying the longer and more difficult Secretariat.
