Please double check all program numbers prior to wagering

Saratoga Race 2, 6 furlongs Starter $50,000 (1:33 ET)
Best Value Play: #1 Benny Is a Jet (12/1)
Most Likely Winner: #2 Stay Tuned (6/5)
Other Contenders: #3 Roman Revival (6/1), #7 Bird Prince (4/1)

Analysis: Stay Tuned looks to be the best in this field with two near scores at this level, and he comes back after a sharp work down in Jersey. Roman Revival scored at Belmont on the lead and now gets Johnny V. in the irons-can’t dismiss this son of a Derby winner. Bird Prince has the numbers, gets Castellano and is going second time after a layoff and being claimed for Jacobson. Benny Is a Jet is mainly a turf runner but he has made a decent showing on dirt. Always bet and always closing, and always dangerous.

Saratoga Race 8, One Mile Allowance 1X (4:55 ET)
Best Value Play: #8 Missy Bay (15/1)
Most Likely Winner: #4 Ack Naughty (7/5)
Other Contenders: #2 C d’Cat (4/1) #9 All Day Alice (6/1)

Analysis: Act Naughty finds a perfect place to run and appears to be the best after her past efforts. C d’Cat may have a weird name but she is a closing machine. If things set up right she could be at the wire first. All Day Alice made a respectable showing in her only run on the lawn. She has faced some tough foes in the past as she makes her first voyage in restricted state company. Missy Bay is the only multiple winner in the field and has fairly good turf breeding, plus Castellano gets in the saddle.
