Mike’s Free Selections for Saturday Aug. 19:

Saratoga Race 2 Md Sp Wt (1:33 ET)

  • No.7 Blockade   5-1
  • No.6 Cullem Road   12-1
  • No.4 Congruity   3-1
  • No.3 Hyndford   7-2

Blockade makes his debut for the Shug barn that is 8% winners (with a +ROI) with first time starters. This colt has a nice pedigree, by War Front out of the turf stakes winner Hit It Rich ($521,810) who has dropped one foal to race a turf winner. Quick works on the morning tab and with Pletcher and Brown both having firsters in here we should catch a fair price.

Cullum Road debuts for the Weaver barn that is 12% winners (with a +ROI) with first timers. The $175,000 Ocala purchase is by Quality Road out of the stakes winner R Charlie’s Angel ($211,298) who has dropped four winners and three have won on turf. This barn is underrated with younger horses and he is going to be a generous price in this spot.

WIN: 7 to win at 7-2 or better.
EX: 6,7 / 3,4,6,7
TRI: 6,7 / 3,4,6,7 / 3,4,6,7,9
