Mike’s Free Selections for Thursday August 21:


Saratoga Race 3 Md Sp Wt (1:32 ET)

  • No.3 Blue Shark   9-5
  • No.1 Bryce Bryce Baby   8-1
  • No.7 Vagarious   2-1
  • No.2 Jacob’s Here   6-1
Blue Shark prompted the early pace toward the outside, grabbed the lead heading for home and weakened to finish third last out on turf trying to get nine furlongs on turf off a 9 1/2 month layoff. His lone go on dirt came two back last fall at Belmont Park where he checked in fourth  in a race in which the runner up and third place finisher came back to graduate next out. Pedigree wise this guy seems better suited for the main track. He is by Colonel John out of a stakes placed Pulpit mare. The barn is 4 for 12 (with a +ROI) moving runners from turf to dirt.
Bryce Bryce Baby stalked the early pace and finished evenly in a third place finish last out going six furlongs and now tries two turns for the first time while stepping up to the maiden special weight level. The Kimmel barn is 18% winners moving runners from sprint to route. The gelding has a decent enough pedigree to handle the extra ground, by Golden Missile out of a Belong to Me mare that has dropped three winners but no route winners He is stepping up in class but this not a very imposing group of state breds he runs into here.
Race Rating: $$$
WIN: #3 to win at 8-5 or better.
EX: 1,3 / 1,2,3,7
TRI: 1,3 / 1,2,3,7 / 1,2,3,6,7
