Saratoga Vulnerable Favorites, Live Longshots, and Spot Plays: July 29



3:41 SAR 6th

COUNTKNICKERBOCKER (#10, 9/2 )is a twice beaten fav in 2013, but he endured tough trips both times and can make amends here, perhaps at a slightly better price.- Mike Beer


1:00 SAR 1ST

CHARDSEY (#1, 12-1): Although he has won just once from 20 starts, that victory was delivered on a yielding inner turf course at Saratoga “off the page” in 2011, and there was a chance for some rain toward the end of the weekend. Recent form is okay, as he ran a new top Beyer Figure two starts ago.-Dave Litfin

2:04 SAR 3rd

LIQUID LUNCH (#8, 12-1): ex-Pletcher assistant has started out well on his own and gets one here from his old boss’s client; returns off 10 month layoff but lone turf race last year was pretty quick.- Chuck Kuehhas
