Saratoga August 5, 2022

Race 6: Maiden Special Weight

#1A Point Proven and #1 Crupi both debut for Pletcher and look ready to run. Pletcher usually unleashes his best horses on the weekends at Saratoga. #2 Disarm should improve in his second start for a trainer who is red hot right now at Saratoga. Asmussen knows how to win with two-year-olds as well.

Race 7: Glens Falls Stakes (G2)

#6 War Like Goddess is a total monster. Last year, she came to Saratoga and dominated this race before taking home the Flower Bowl Stakes (G1) to end the meet. This year, she returned to the races with an easy win at Keeneland, which should have her sharp for this race. #2 Virginia Joy has some solid wins this year and was competitive against a top-notch field in her last start.

Race 8: Allowance

#8 Saint Tapit debuted like a monster for Pletcher and the runner-up broke his maiden last weekend. This could be the next big star out of the Pletcher barn. #6 Hometown moves to the Atras barn for this race, which usually leads to an improved effort.

Race 9: Test Stakes (G1)

#1 Matareya is back looking for her fifth straight victory and her second straight in a Grade 1. She made short work of her competition in each of her prior 4 wins while most of the time never being asked to do much running. #6 Hot Peppers looked solid winning the Victory Ride Stakes (G3) at Belmont Park last time out and should be the one who’s most prepared for the new challenge today.
