SELECTIONS FOR 8/27/16 -- HANDICAPPING HEROES
The boys are taking on Travers Day at Saratoga and are tossing some bombs out there! They'll try to take down the PICK 4 starting in race 8.
SCOTT HARRIS: Lighting the fuse and trying to sink the canoe
RACE 8 -- Kings Bishop G1 7 furlongs
(13) DREFONG gets the nod here. Has won three in a row. Mike Smith and Bob Baffert. (2) FISH TRAPPE ROAD beat a few of these in the Dwyer at Belmont. Must respect. (12) TOM'S READY. This veteran closer will be flying. Will he run out of track? (3) SUMMER REVOLUTION. Two for two lifetime. Today is the test. Castellano on board for the first time
RACE 9 -- The Forego G1 7 Furlongs
(11) A.P. INDIAN looks the best. Has won last three. (1) CATALINA RED chased A.P. Indian home last time. Will probably do the same today. (3) LIMOUSINE LIBERAL has had "seconditis" last two times out. (12) MARKING was only a head behind A.P. Indian in the Belmont Sprint. Can he turn the tables today?
RACE 10 -- SWORD DANCER G1 1 1/2 MILES (TURF)
(6) FLINTSHIRE might be the best bet of the day. No price likely, though. (1) GRAND TITO has chased Flintshire home in the last two. Will probably so the same today. (2) MONEY MULTIPLIER another Chad Brown entry that has been first or second last four times out. (4) TWILIGHT ECLIPSE rounds out a field all chasing the top pick.
RACE 11 -- THE TRAVERS G1 1-1/4 MILES
(8) DESTIN keeps getting close. Castellano stays on board for Pletcher. (12) CREATOR has run against a few of these. Needs to return to Belmont Stakes form. (7) EXAGGERATOR took the Haskell. Can he capture the Canoe today? (4) GOVERNOR MALIBU closed well here in the Jim Dandy. Should like the extra distance.
