SARATOGA PICK 4 (RACES 2-5)

RACE 2

A's - 1

B's - 2, 4

C's - None

Taking a bit of a stand with BOND VIGILANTE, who has speed and the rail for the red-hot Chad Brown. MARRIEDTOTHEMUSIC is the one to catch and could easily be considered an "A" by some, though he could also regress off that last Beyer.

RACE 3

A's - 3, 6, 7

B's - 4, 8, 9

C's - 1

Spreading a bit in this wide-open race but I will take a bit of a shot against ML favorite MONONOKE, who will be on defensive tickets only. There's some other speed in here, which could mean he gets softened up and that could set up a closer, such as longshot GINGEE or SCIENZIATO.

RACE 4

A's - 3

B's - 7, 8

C's - 1, 4

Looking to get FLYING BIRD home at a big price in this leg, as he's been working very well on the main track and should appreciate this return to dirt. Using others on lesser tickets but he's a key for me on the day.

RACE 5

A's - 1, 2

B's - 5, 7

WEST HILLS GIANT will be most tickets given that Beyer he earned in the statebred stakes win on the turf two back but I'm giving equal weight to OLD PAL OF MINE, who ships in from Louisiana Downs with competitive figures.
