It was a surprise to learn that there have been only 9 graded stakes carded at a flat mile on the turf at Saratoga over the past several years. That figure includes a pair of stakes already at this expanded 2019 meeting and a scan of the Betmix Angler handicapping database was able to quickly find a rapidly emerging Sharp Angle for this race type.
Regal Glory ($6.00) winner of the Lake George S. (G2) on July 19 and Casa Creed ($6.00) hero of last Friday's Hall of Fame S. (G2) both ranked first in Average of Last 3 E1 Pace. This factor has also pointed to 3 recent Fourstardave winners, including last year's champ Voodoo Song, who conquered a quartet of Grade 1 winners at nearly 7-1.
