Mike’s Free Selections for Friday August 1:


Saratoga Race 3 Md Sp Wt (2:02 ET)

  • No.7 Twenty in One   7-2
  • No.4 Samantha Nicole   5-2
  • No.6 Cali Star   2-1
  • No.1 Luna Time   10-1
Twenty in One gets the call against a solid looking field of maidens here. The filly is coming off a good effort last out where she made a late run to finish in the runner up spot going long at Churchill Downs. The winner Senior Prom came back to beat Alw-1 foes in her next outing while the third place finisher Rumba broke her maiden in her next start at Churchill Downs on June 13. Our top pick also ran into a repeater two back when third behind Stellaris, one of three to exit that race to win next out. The Arnold trainee has enough pedigree to handle nine furlongs, by Invasor out of a Deputy Minister mare that has dropped five winners.
Samantha Nicole was bet down to the chalk in her debut but hit the gate at the break and was no match for Handmade,a well meant Neil Howard runner that has come back to beat Alw-1 foes. This filly was a $70,000 Keeneland purchase and she is out of the stakes winner Lotta Kim ($146,485) who has dropped one other foal to race, multiple Grade 1 winner Rachel Alexandra ($3.5 million). McLaughlin takes over form Asmussen and has won with four of his last nine newcomers to the barn and has solid numbers with runners coming back off the bench.
Race Rating: $$$
WIN: #7 to win at 3-1 or better.
EX: 4,7 / 1,4,6,7
TRI: 4,7 / 1,4,6,7 / 1,3,4,6,7
