FRIDAY, AUGUST 25

Eye for Style was scratched on Thursday, so we had no action.

On to Friday, as the countdown to the Travers continues?

RACE 4

Sky High Flyer is my top selection in the published analysis, but my second choice, Oberon's Girl, figures very close, much closer than their respective morning-line prices of 8-5 and 9-2.

Sky High Flyer has run three good races since coming to the U.S., the latest a close fourth to multiple stakes winner My Typhoon, who runs in Saturday's Ballston Spa Handicap. But Oberon's Girl has run the three best races of her life since coming back from a two-month freshening in early spring, and also ran into a stakes winner last time when fourth behind Shared Dreams, who returned to win the Waya here recently.

Oberon's Girl had a tough setup against Shared Dreams when three wide on both turns off a slow pace, and she will pack a powerful closing punch shortening up from 10 furlongs to a mile.

The bet: $40 to win on Oberon's Girl. Also, let's take a $10 exacta saver using her underneath Sky High Flyer.

Total wagers previous day: $0

Total wagers for meet: $1,122
Total return for meet: $818.30
Total win/loss for meet: minus $303.70
