SARATOGA PICK 3 (RACES 8-10)

RACE 8

A's - 5

B's - 1, 2, 8

C's - None

DISCREET FORCE, undefeated in two starts thus far, sports a nice work for this, her first start since June. She has positional speed and should be ideally spotted. Main foe is the legitimately tough KEEP BUSTIN; using her as a “B” along with GALIANA and MISS DA POINT.

RACE 9

A's - 3

B's - 2, 8, 9

C's - None

Using a couple of others defensively but PALACE DREAMS will be the one most of the tickets with go through as the only "A" play in the field. She was sharp in that allowance score last time on the lead but she has shown that she doesn’t need the lead to win.

RACE 10

A's - 2, 6

B's - 13

C's - 4, 8

BELLE OF THE WEST stretches out but she ran a decent race in her only route try to date, holding well late to finish a close 4th after stalking the early pace. MELODY LIN took a long time to graduate but she seems well spotted here as a closer in a race with ample pace.
