Race 8: (1) Saratoga’s Best – Looks to have come into good form, draws the rail and has a big shot to do well. (6) Apple N Strawberry – Makes her second local start and has every reason to improve.
Race 9: (2) Native Moon – Shows doing well against Pennsylvania competition and should do well against buckeye foes too. (4) Coupon Lady – Looks to be facing a softer division than she has been facing and could get the job done tonight.
Race 10: (3) More To The Story – Makes her second local start and has every reason to improve. (4) I Love To Boggie – Drops in class and looks to be at a level where she should be victorious.
Race 11: (1) Sweetie Sue Cam – Was a winner in her most recent effort, draws the rail and has a big shot to win again. (2) Bare Legs – Faces tougher than she has been but still has a large chance to do well. (3) Fly To The Angels – Anything Morgan starts is worthy of strong consideration.
