Analysis:
Linda Rice and Cornelio Velasquez sent out NOBLE ACTION's big sister, Noble Fire, to a juvenile debut win last fall at Belmont, and Rice is having a sharp meet at the Spa. The precocious Hook and Ladder is due to send out his first debut winner of 2008.
AMERICAN LAND is also by Hook and Ladder, and she cost $80,000 earlier in the year. She may offer some value in a competitive race.
BROCKLY ROB showed good speed in her debut, but that race was for a $50,000 price tag, and she may face more pressure in this tougher spot.
FIVE STAR CHOWDAIR was no match for an impressive runaway winner when second as a "Spa Baby" selection. She should be well-placed as they swing into the stretch. SOAVE raced evenly in her debut, and may work out an inside-out trip for an overdue barn. HELEN'S LADY had early trouble in her debut, and had virtually no chance to rally over an inside, speed-favoring track. She can move forward with that effort under her girth. LA CONCERTO goes out for the always-dangerous Steve Asmussen, but the workouts aren't very exciting. QUIET SKY is bred for speed on top, and Dutrow Jr. usually sends them ready first-out, but the inside post is a bit worrisome.

Selections:
1. Noble Action
2. American Land
3. Brockly Rob

The Play:
Noble Action to Win at 7-2 odds or greater

- trainer is 1-3 (33%, $2.80 ROI) over the past five years with second-time juveniles adding blinkers at Saratoga

Analysis:
LORD JUSTICE is the first foal out of Grade 1 winner Buy the Sport, and will make his debut for potent first-out connections. The workouts look strong, and he should give a nice account of himself in this spot.
BRAVE VICTORY ran a game second on Opening Day after chasing the pace while wide. He should show good speed, and Nick Zito's juveniles usually run well second-out.
ROYAL VINDICATION gave a professional effort in his career debut, and is another that should move forward with the first-out education under the belt.
KEEPING THE HONOR had no chance last time when missing the break over a speed-favoring track. The gray has tons of precocious influences in the female family.
SUCCESSFUL MISSION adds blinkers after a pop and stop debut. He should be a pace factor at the very least. GOLDEN JUNGLE's dam is a half-sister to Formal Gold so perhaps the Touch Gold colt will want a bit more ground. REGAL RANSOM goes out for red-hot connections, but the inside post can be an intimidating place for inexperienced babies. FOREST BELL may ultimately want more distance, and perhaps a switch to the grass course.

Selections:
1. Lord Justice
2. Brave Victory
3. Royal Vindication

The Play:
Lord Justice to Win at 7-2 odds or more.

Race 4
6 Furlongs
Vichy Stakes (NY-Breds)
2-year-old fillies
Purse $80,000

Analysis:
STUNNING ELECTRA looked good winning her maiden earlier this meet over sloppy going, and Steve Asmussen excels with young runners.
AKILINA is also a meet winner. She scored with the addition of Lasix for Christophe Clement, and figures close by when they hit the quarter pole.
HOOKIN THE GOODS dominated her rivals in gate-to-wire fashion at Belmont, and shows quick works for her return from a short layoff. She's fast, but may face more pace pressure here.
GOODDAY was purchased privately after a facile win over Del Mar's polytrack. She shows a bullet workout over the Saratoga main strip. CHARTREUX is an intriguing contender. She raced greenly in her debut, then was overmatched in the Grade 3 Schuylerville on Opening Day. She adds blinkers for Mike Hushion, and should get a good pace to attack late. THUNDER REIGNS may be in a bit steep. OUCHY NIGHT must hustle from the rail, and she may get caught up in an early duel.

Selections:
1. Stunning Electra
2. Akilina
3. Hookin the Goods

Analysis:
MARAM is bred both sides for turf, and shows some intriguing workouts for low-profile, high-percentage barn.
TOTAL JOY should improve with the stretchout in distance as well as the surface switch as a daughter of Giant's Causeway. She has plenty of blacktype on the bottom of her pedigree, and prior racing experience matters in these juvenile turf routes.
PUTTINGONTHEMIST should save ground from the rail, and it's nice to see Edgar Prado take the mount.
It looks like PALMETO PRINCESS has been picking up the pace in her recent workouts. Trainer David Donk's barn has been heating up over the last two weeks. MY VIOLIN raced evenly at Delaware, and needs a Beyer boost to contend. MISS SEDUCTION may be the better of the two Pletcher entrants, as the barn's go-to rider, John Velazquez, takes the call. JORDAN'S SONG's workouts fail to entice, but this barn gets its share of debut winners. LOVAMOR's sire is doing well with his first crop, but Johnny V. lands on the entrymate. OUTSTANDING HENNY trailed over speed-favoring track, and should appreciate plunging in class. OFFICER FLIRT was no match for runaway winner on dirt, and offers some value in the gimmicks. TIGRESS SEVEN must avoid wide trip from far outside post.

Analysis:
UNBRIDLE'S DREAM is out of the top turf mare Gaviola, and the son of Unbridled's Song shows a stamina-building turf drill for top barn. He draws a cozy inside post, and may be allowed to control the pace from the opening bell.
SOLIDIFY's sire, Alajwad, was a late-blooming turf runner that never got a chance to reach his full potential. Solidify should show better speed on the stretchout, and will be a huge price.
LIME RICKEY enjoyed a decent trip in first start around two turns when the beaten favorite here three weeks ago. Demand value.
PIONEEROF THE NILE has a nice pedigree, but a tough outside post. HYPE's sire does well with turf runners, and John Velazquez makes this his choice of the two Pletcher entrants. SEATTLE BREW's second dam was a classy mare, and the son of Pleasant Tap should improve off troubled debut. SWINGING BERNIE shows solid workouts, but the West Virginia-bred may need a race. ENDYMION worked swiftly prior to being bought back at auction. He's an exotics threat under the red-hot Alan Garcia. GENTLEMAN JETER can contend if this race is rained off the turf. LAST MARTINI ran into an exciting prospect in his debut, and may get a bit of class relief here. Don't discount BOUNISSIMO at huge odds as he gets the Lasix and blinkers makeover from shrewd barn. INTO MY SOUL is by a stout sire, and should appreciate the extra distance.
