SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. - Atigun, beaten favorite in the Grade 2 Colonial Turf Cup, and Sky Blazer, runner-up in a recent allowance race, top a seven-horse field entered in the $100,000 Idle Rich Stakes at 1 3/16 miles.

Atigun, trained by Ken McPeek, had "a horrible trip," McPeek said, when he was beaten six lengths in the Colonial Turf Cup. He gets a rider switch from Julien Leparoux to Junior Alvarado.

Sky Blazer, winless in nine starts, wheels back in 10 days after finishing second to Slumber in an allowance race at this same distance.
