In support of our troops, for the remainder of the meet, we will donate 2X our column winnings to the Wounded Warrior Project ( https://www.woundedwarriorproject.org/ ). They're a wonderful organization which lend aid to those who have bravely fought for our country. It may come out to just $250-$270, but every bit counts. Feel free to root along, or join in whole or part.
Saturday's $23.40 winner added $46.80 more to the above, bringing the total to ( at least ) $174.60 thus far.
Just a reminder that for today's Saratoga full card selections & analysis, merely go back one page.
I'd like to leave this bit of info here for y'all. When we're using the DRF Formulator platform while writing our columns, if we say "Sprints", for the most part we mean any one turn race, and when we say "Routes", we mean any TWO turn race. ( For example, we consider a 1 1/8th mile race at Belmont an elongated sprint, and a 6 1/2 furlong race at a Charles Town a route. ) We feel this way, because in our eyes, it's the number of turns that necessitate more energy than being relaxed on a straightaway. Sometimes the sample size for our study can be too large to manually break down, so there may be a few from one category in another, but usually the end result is pretty much the same. Additionally, when it comes to layoffs, we consider more than 50 days in a dirt to dirt scenario a layoff, more than 58 days in D to T or T to D a layoff, and more than 67 days in a turf to turf deal a L/O.

3.Dance to the Music
#8 BICAMERAL ( "Having two branches of chambers", by 'Constitution', ya get it?" ) is a maiden facing winners, but sometimes that doesn't matter as much as you think it might think it would in a freshman stakes such as this. April foal lost by less than five to the race co-favorite in their lone encounter, but gets a two pound break in the weights today, and goes from an "inside-ish" post to the outside, and quite often, the babies react positively when being able to relax a bit while observing things inside of them. There are times we're shocked Mario's still getting big time mounts, but we'll use here at 12-1. #7 GRACE ADLER ( a character in 'Will and Grace', owned by "Willow Grace" Farm, ya get it ? ) got up in time at odds on when debuting at the end of July, and retains the best jock in the country. #4 DANCE TO THE MUSIC ( how about some 'Sly and the Family Stone, right here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kHaDc82w6OM ) went coast to coast like butter and toast at first asking, and we dig Cedillo on two turn speed runners.
