The 145th Saratoga meet kicks off Friday, July 18 in New York with ten races carded including the $100,000 Sir Cat Stakes which will be included in the late pick four and daily double.
The Sir Cat, run at a mile on the turf, features eight three year-olds who have never won a stakes race on the turf. Tourist, the 8/5 morning line favorite trained by Hall-of-Famer Bill Mott, comes into the race off back-to-back victories against maiden special weight and allowance foes while making his second start off a four month layoff.
Storming Inti looking to break through
Trainer Chad Brown is always dangerous on the turf and at Saratoga. His charge, Storming Inti (9/5 ML), is the class of the field after running second in the Grade II American Turf Stakes at Churchill and third in the Grade III Palm Beach Stakes at Gulfstream before finishing third again in the contentious Penn Mile Stakes at Penn National in his last start.
Ring Weekend available at a price
Cabo Cat (4/1 ML) has run in the exacta in each of his last three starts in minor stakes competition for trainer Mark Hennig. Tampa Bay Derby winner Ring Weekend is available at 10/1 on the morning line, and classes up nicely against this field. He must rebound after a distant fifth place finish in the Preakness and an off-the-board finish in the Grade III Pegasus Stakes at Monmouth in his last two starts for savvy turf trainer Graham Motion.
