The historic Jockey Club Gold will be run at Saratoga for the second on Saturday and has drawn a very solid field of 8 older graded stakes winners.
We turned to the Betmix Angler online handicapping database for clues and found that the Win % handicapping factor has shown good returns in the 10-furlong dirt Grade 1s at Saratoga. This factor has pointed to 37% winners of this race type and 55% in the money finishers, including Happy Saver, the runner up in the first upstate Gold Cup last year.
