Mike’s Free Selections for Wednesday August 31:


Saratoga Race 3 Md $40,000 (2:06 ET)

  • No.3 Stony Brook   3-1
  • No.4 Colonel Andy   8-1
  • No.10 Not So Quiet Man   9-2
  • No.8 Junger   7-2
Stony Brook acted up in the paddock and pre race including dumping the jock. He then was bumped when caught in between foes coming out of the gate and was not much of a threat in a fifth place finish at Monmouth Park against maiden special weight foes. The winner Cheyenne Bull came back to beat Alw-1 optional claimers at Monmouth Park on Aug. 21. He figures to move forward here on the switch to turf. He is by Smarty Jones out of a Gulch mare that has dropped two winners including one turf winner. Servis is 8 for his last 16 (with a +ROI) dropping runners form maiden special to maiden claiming.

Colonel Andy tracked the early pace, bore out eight wide on the far turn and checked in sixth last out in his first trip over the Spa turf. He was claimed out of the race by the Morley barn that is having a strong meeting, winning with 6 of 22 starters. The gelding is out of a D’Accord mare that has dropped five winners including a couple of turf winners, top earner multiple stakes winner Frannie Freud ($686,029).

WIN: #3 to win at 5-2 or better.
EX: 3,4 / 3,4,8,10
TRI: 3,4 / 3,4,8,10 / 1,3,4,8,10
