Saratoga Racing Notebook and Horses of Interest
Each week we follow the races and provide insight into selected races and notes on horses of interest. The weekly notebook is another addition to our reports to assist horsemen and those who wager on the races with additional insight and analysis. This week we analyze how invading horses from other tracks have performed at Saratoga thus far during the meet.
The Saratoga Summer Meet opened Friday, July 21, and we cover all the races Wednesday through Monday. We’ll be analyzing the races throughout the 40-day meet in the East Coast Handicapping Report (ECHR) looking to uncover key information with helpful hints on the horses to help you win more at the races.
*Nothing scientific about coming up with the following stats. It’s called hard work, no technology involved, just a pen and paper alongside the daily race charts. As a result, we’ve uncovered some interesting stuff, take a look:
NEGATIVE – *INVADERS FROM CHURCHILL ROUTING ON THE TURF – OFF THE BOARD so far at the Meet in 25 of 30 races (2 wins, 1 second, 2 third, 25 off the board).
NEGATIVE – *INVADERS FROM DELAWARE ROUTING ON THE TURF – OFF THE BOARD so far at the Meet in all 6 races.
NEGATIVE – *INVADERS FROM ELLIS ALL SURFACES – OFF THE BOARD so far at the Meet in 9 of 10 races.
POSITIVE – *INVADERS FROM MONMOUTH ROUTING ON THE TURF – IN THE MONEY in 5 of 8 races.
POSITIVE – *INVADERS FROM LAUREL IN ALL TURF STARTS – IN THE MONEY in 6 of 11 races including 3 winners.
Notes and results from the ECHR from Aug. 2 racing at Saratoga.
Race 2 – POSITIVE: #4 Sound the Horns – Motion, off the rest, off the win, fitting well classwise. Include. 1ST $13.00
Race 4 – POSITIVE: #4 Doinwhatshelikes – Getting healthy right now, also shortening up. Should be moving well down the lane late. 1ST $20.00
Race 7 – POSITIVE: #8 New York Song – Pretty tough to knock a horse doing nothing wrong at the moment. Yes Jose Ortiz leaves this one for the top pick, but only because it’s bigger picture at stake, riding more quality runners for Brown than Violette. 1ST $22.80
