Nick Shiambouros is back at Saratoga with two selections including the featured Grade 2 Saratoga Special...
"This is tougher, but this likeable colt has a good kick and is improving with racing"
Baseline to Drive home
Race 4 19:54 Saratoga - Baseline Drive
Baseline Drive should go close in this $75k maiden claimer on the turf.
This Point of Entry filly caught the eye on debut when finishing fourth in a Maiden Special Weight at Gulfstream Park in June. She missed the break, but made up a lot of ground in the closing stages and was not beaten all that far. The Chad Brown stable has been a little quiet recently, but has enormous firepower and the winners will come. I think she is open to a fair bit of improvement, and the drop in class makes her the horse to beat. Anything around 3.02/1 will do.
Cazadero for Asmussen
Race 9 22:46 Saratoga - Cazadero
Cazadero should make his presence felt in this fascinating Grade 2 on the main track.
This well related Stonestreet homebred is unbeaten in two starts at Churchill Downs. On his latest start in the Grade 3 Bashford Manor he disposed of a quality field in style. He took the lead in the straight, and powered home to win convincingly.
This is tougher, but this likeable colt has a good kick and is improving with racing. The Steve Asmussen stable is going great guns and the talented Ricardo Santana rides back for connections. He should be backed at around 4.03/1 on the exchange.
