Workout analysis: July 16 workout matches barn's 2yo Storm Breeze (80 Beyer top).

Analysis:

PAGE SIX OBSESSED debuts for barn that has sent out some live runners at this meet, and she is by a very good first-out sire. Her female family is full of classy performers, and she should show speed under high-percentage rider Dominguez. BEDSIDE STORY has some potent maiden angles in her corner as she'll add Lasix for the first time while dropping out of the maiden special ranks. Her Beyers have improved with each start, and she should be closer to the pace in this spot. MAGGIE THE MIGHTY may want a bit more ground, but the barn has done well with firsters here over the last few years. DISTINCTIVE GOLD swithes to low-profile barn that has had success with juveniles at the meet. She had trouble when well-bet last time.

The Bet: Page Six Obsessed to Win and Place (5-2 odds or more)

Analysis:

Mark Hennig hasn't gotten off to a fast start at the Saratoga meet, but his LAURENTIDE ICE looks like an intriguing play. Sire Intidab was a quick little sprinter, and the dam has already thrown a juvenile debut winner. Laurentide Ice whistled out of the gate here on July 31, and should be ready for action. HUMOROUS VENTURE and CAUGHT RED HANDED are babies with precocious pedigrees, but both are stuck on the also-eligible list. COOL PARADIGM attracts John Velazquez, and it's good to see the 5 furlong workouts on her tab. PEPITAS DE ORO debuts for an underrated barn, but must deal with the inside post. NAVY MISS shows some decent moves, and may offer some value. WYNSOME WESLEY shows bullet works for barn that excels with babies.

The Bet: Laurentide Ice to Win and Place (3-1 odds or more)
