2013 Saratoga Race Course Giveaways – Schedule NBC 2013 Saratoga


Seven runner, 6 betting interests, will take the center state opening day at Saratoga and online sports betting site players will have options.

2013 Saratoga Race CourseThe $150,000 Grade 3 6-furlong dash for juvenile fillies has been won by some very nice stars over the years like the blur known as Marshua, Numbered Account, and Meadow Star and last year So Many Ways was coming off an 8-length debut win at Philly before coming from second to last in this race to win going away with a 79 Beyer Speed Figure.

What: Schuylerville Stakes
Who:  Pletcher entry of Elena Strikes and Yes Liz to win
Where: Saratoga
When: Friday, July 19

Only one runner in this field has stakes experience and that runner, Silver Valley, ran 4th beaten 13 lengths.

Silver Valley will be making her third start as she shocked a field of 7 in her debut at 16-1.

Jonesin for Jerry was bet like a good thing in her debut when offered for a $40,000 claiming tag but make amends for that flop as chalk by taking a Delaware Park MSW field wire-to-wire with a 75 Beyer. She will have to try to use her natural speed to flee the rail today and avoid getting shuffled.

Elena Strikes is one of two Todd Pletcher students in this race and this gal proved a prompt favorite in her debut at Monmouth Park.

She has been stabled at Saratoga since late May and she figures she should get a hot enough pace to be effective here.

Pedigree-wise, Elena has a right to have a stellar career as a half sister to double Grade 2 juvenile winner and over $700,000 earner Runway Model.

Brazen Persuasion was dead short in her debut but she tracked a very fast pace in her second start and she overcame a bumping incident to win graduate by nearly 5 lengths.

Bahnah got an ideal 3-home trip in her winning debut as she drew off to win by 6 lengths with a powerful 91 Beyer. She has trained fast for this engagement including a second best of 51 drill on July 12. Winner Bargain Blitz posted the best drill that day.

Yes Liz is the other half of the Pletcher entry. This $200,000 purchase also was favored in her debut and she sure didn’t disappoint as she won by nearly 4 lengths while the place horse was 10 clear of the show horse.

True Blue Nation will close out the field. This youngster was value in her debut as she took control at the sound of the bell winning by 5 and a quarter lengths at a juicy 17-1. The show horse in the debut was over 7 lengths clear of the next rival.

They say good things come in small packages and this race fits the bill.

We have unproven runners who as just trying to figure out where they belong on the track. In cases like this, players have to try to project which runner will improve and thrive on the competition.

Bahnah and Brazen Persuasion have the top Beyers in the field but these runners can improve hourly and when you get a chance to get action on a two for one play, take it.

The Pletcher entry of Elena Strikes and Yes Liz fits the bill.
Good luck.
