SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. – Saturday’s Grade 1, $500,000 Fourstardave Handicap at Saratoga is a fascinating race featuring a filly, a New York-bred who has proven he can do more than sprint, an American who disappointed in Europe, and a European who has twice disappointed in America.

And that doesn’t include the improving Ballagh Rocks and World Approval, the only millionaire in the field for the one-mile turf race.

After his record-setting sprint, I think many were surprised to see Disco Partner carry that speed for a mile. If he can reproduce that, we may get to see a Presious Passion-style performance. :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

It's a really unusual and diverse field. I still don't know who I like. ;)
