TimeformUS Saratoga Horses in Focus for Friday, Aug. 18, 2017


Race 2:
Special Jo (#1)

The Pace Projector is predicting he will be on the lead in a situation favoring the front-runner.
Goes first off the claim for Robertino Diodoro, who gets a 93 Trainer Rating in these situations.
Has handled a wet track in the past.
5-2 on ML

Race 5:
Missbigtimes (#2)

Broke slowly and raced extremely wide in her debut.
Finished behind Pure Silver, who returned to win two stakes, including the Grade 2 Adirondack.
Her dam was a stakes-placed sprinter, so she’s bred to be quicker than she showed first time out.
5-2 on ML

Race 6:
Painter’s Rags (#11)

Showed a strong late kick when winning his debut over a wet track last December.
Was against a slow pace in his second start behind graded stakes-placed Battalion Runner.
Should appreciate the stretch-out to nine furlongs on the dirt.
6-1 on ML
