Thanks for the reminder about the FS2 coverage. It doesn't carry the whole card like TVG (today's programming is from 1-3:30 Pacific, 1-4 tomorrow & 1-3:30 again on Sunday), but their broadcast is in high-def.
I wonder if the Saratoga Live coverage will have other cameras available to show the races? TVG just gets the single pan view (from the grandstand, I presume) and, when the field goes into the far turn, you can hardly see anything of the horses. For such a prestigious meet, the camera coverage is paltry. :oops:
And there seems to be more stuff constructed within the infield this year, often blocking that pan view. :roll:

R6: Southern Phantom makes his debut, and may take money given his distinctive appearance. However, trainer Eric Guillot is 0 for 14 the past 5 years w/maidens debuting at NYRA tracks.

R2: Todd Pletcher stretches out second-time starter Seanow in this two-turn maiden race. Over the past year, he's got very strong numbers with similar stock bet to odds of 10-1 or lower.

R4: Danny Gargan and Kendrick Carmouche team up with Windjammer in this wide-open turf route. Over the past 90 days, this combination's done very well with turf horses bet to 10-1 or lower. Of 10 such starters, four have won, and nine have hit the board.
I've found it easier to tear up tickets at 8/1 instead of 8/5.

Seanow was pretty impressive winning.

Nitrous (Tapit-Speeinthruthecity-City Zip) looked really sharp breaking his maiden in the 6th today. He went very fast early on and still pulled away at the end.
