SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. &ndash; The one thing trainer Neil Howard has learned about Lou Brissie is that the juvenile colt would benefit from running long. Without a dirt option, Howard hopes to learn that Lou Brissie likes the turf as well when he runs in Friday&rsquo;s Grade 3, $100,000 With Anticipation Stakes at Saratoga.\r\nThe With Anticipation, scheduled for 1 1/16 miles on the outer turf course, is the feature on a nine-race program that begins at 2:30 p.m.\r\nLou Brissie, a son of Limehouse, won his first two starts, including a maiden race on Keeneland&rsquo;s Polytrack and the Grade 3 Kentucky Juvenile over Churchill&rsquo;s dirt surface. After running a well-beaten second to the recently retired Kantharos in the Bashford Manor, Lou Brissie finished fourth in the Grade 2 Sanford here.\r\nHoward said he noticed in the sprint races that riders had to &ldquo;pick at&rdquo; Lou Brissie to stay in the race, which took away from his closing kick. That&rsquo;s why Howard believes the 1 1/16 miles will suit him.\r\n&ldquo;He doesn&rsquo;t have a lot of speed, he always kicks at the end, he&rsquo;s had a good finish sprinting,&rdquo; said Howard, who trains Lou Brissie for Dogwood Stable. &ldquo;So far, it&rsquo;s been indicated to me that [distance] should really suit him.&rdquo;\r\nLou Brissie worked on the turf and went four furlongs in a solid 48.40 seconds under jockey Ramon Dominguez, who will ride him in the race.\r\nAnother horse trying the turf &ndash; and distance &ndash; for the first time is Sensational Slam, who won two Canadian-bred sprints at Woodbine by narrow margins.\r\n&ldquo;He&rsquo;s a lazy colt, I think the stretch out in distance will help him settle in the early part of the race without having to nudge on him,&rdquo; trainer Todd Pletcher said.\r\nAir Support won a maiden race on turf at this distance pressing a strong early pace. Trainer Shug McGaughey said he hopes there is more speed for his horse to settle behind in the With Anticipation.\r\n&ldquo;He was a little green and he did lay up there to a pretty hot pace,&rdquo; McGaughey said &ldquo;If it&rsquo;s like that Friday, I&rsquo;d like for him to be back a little bit farther and kind of make a run at them. I think being green Javier [Castellano] was keeping him busy. He had a good work on the turf here on Monday.&rdquo;\r\nTyphoon Slew was a front-running maiden winner on turf at Ellis Park. Powahatan County won over this course before finishing a troubled fourth in the Continental Mile at Monmouth. Grigio, Manchurian High, Silver Medallion, Kid Curry, and Soldat complete the field.
