SARATOGA PICK 4 (RACES 3-6)

RACE 3

KEY's - 1, 3, 8

B's - 2

C's - 5, 6, 7

LITTLE ROCKET comes off a decent effort in the Prioress, where she was bumped at the start, but PRINCESS MARA merits a look on the switch back to the main track, and the Bruce Levine-trained entry of KEEP BUSTIN, a close 2nd in her latest, and the speedy SHE'S STONES SIS also should be included prominently.

RACE 4

A's - 5, 6

B's - 2

C's - None

TAKE DOWN TWO may be the main speed, which makes him very dangerous in this highly contentious sprint. SCHOOLYARD DREAMS has the early foot to stay close, which should be an edge if the pace is controlled.

RACE 5

KEY's - 4

B's - None

C's - 5, 7, 9

JESS NOT JESSE is a big key here as the only "A" in a race with no "B" contenders. He should win this if he's able to run to his figures. The "C" plays are insurance only, in case JESS NOT JESSE has trouble breaking from the rail, or encounters some other form of trouble.

RACE 6

KEY's - 4, 8

B's - 9, 10

C's - None

VICTORY ISLAND was a beaten favorite when last seen but she had a fair amount of trouble there. NUFFSAID NUFFSAID has shown improved speed of late but she's at her best when allowed to take back and make one run; expecting her to improve today.
