Saratoga- Free Horse Racing Picks on Friday July 31
Carl Nicholson previews the card at Saratoga on Friday.
SHE’S MY TYPE ran a blinder to finish 2nd last time out at Belmont Park over 6f and there is no reason to think she cannot be just as effective back at 5f today. ARTIE’S PRINCESS has yet to run a bad race in her career so far and does look and out and out speedball. She had no trouble in disposing of her rivals by a wide margin last time out and she looks a leading player for this. BREDENBURY got the better of SHE’S MY TYPE last time out, but I am not sure this drop to 5f will be in her favour this time. MISS J MCKAY was another to finish behind the latter named and its hard to see where the improvement could come to reverse that form. KARAK is a consistent type and will giver her running.
There is plenty to like about SHE’S MY TYPES chances back at 5f, but ATRIE’S PRINCESS looks a filly going places this season and she is my selection for this race.
VILLAINOUS is a reserve for this but if getting a run would be very tough to beat in this type of company.
LIDO KEY has run some good races that would give this daughter of Lemon Drop Kid leading claims in this race, but it is interesting that Irad Ortiz Jr opts to ride PRINCESS FAWZIA instead of LIDO KEY as that one ran its best race of the season under his handling 2 runs ago. PRINCESS FAWZIA is obviously unexposed and was just touched off at big odds last time out on just her second start for the Rice barn and she is my selection to make in 2 wins out of just 3 starts.
