Jeff Siegel’s Best Bets: Fillies at Saratoga


Xpressbet analyst Jeff Siegel offers Best Bets Thursday-Saturday.

Saratoga – Race 5:  Post 3:30 ET.
6-Guardian Moon (2-1)

Well-regarded daughter of Declaration of War makes her debut for a barn that excels with debut runners (28%, massive flat-bet profit) and looks extremely live with Joel Rosario taking the call following a series of sharp drills that should have her primed and ready. Certainly bred for grass and with a bullet three furlong blowout (:35 2/5, fastest of 15) just five days ago, the Jorge Abreu-trained filly seems likely to come out firing. At 2-1 on the morning line, she’s worth a play in the win pool and in the rolling exotics.


Saratoga – Race 8: Post 5:14 ET.
1-Fresco (5/2)

Promising sophomore filly won a similar stakes race last month over the local lawn in just her second career start and should be tough right back despite this time tackling the boys. The Christophe Clement-trained daughter of Freud has a good inside draw, is solid on numbers, retains Irad Ortiz, Jr., and is blessed with an electric turn of foot. At 5/2 on the morning line, she offers good value as a win play and rolling exotic single.
