SARATOGA PICK 3 (RACES 4-6)

Race 4

Key's - Mahna

B's - Laguna Girl

C's - Royalty, Conzig

MAHNA ran very well last time despite significant trouble, and figures very tough in this spot if running back to her last dirt race.  LAGUNA GIRL is running out of chances, but clearly can win and will be the main backup.

Race 5

Key's - Sweet Potato, Fanfare

B's - Aireofdistinction

C's - Cool Flame

Thought this was a good spot for SWEET POTATO, and FANFARE is an interesting price turning back to what figures to be a better distance.  For backups, likely fav AIREOFDISTINCTION is logical as the one to beat, and COOL FLAME may run better here after taking a lot of money in her debut.

Race 6

Key's - Souper Speedy

B's - Saturday's Charm

C's - None

Thought SOUPER SPEEDY ran well after surprisingly winding up in a pace duel in the Grade 3 Marvin here opening weekend, and he lands in a race here where he’s just supposed to win. SATURDAY'S CHARM needs some pace up front, but is the only one I would use against the favorite.
