Kings Bishop and Travers Stakes, Saturday, August 23

Two great races, among my favorites of the year and certainly my favorites at Saratoga:

Race 10 Kings Bishop

8 J Be K - set track record as two year old here, working well, numbers say will prefer 7f
7 Golden Spikes - shipper from Calder, class, good chance to grab part, %E good for 7f
1 Kodiak Kowboy - done nothing wrong, Jones knows how to train, good works, likes Spa, may prefer 6f

Exbx: 1-7-8 Exbx: 7-8 Ex: 8-7

Race 11 Travers

8 Harlem Rocker - best final time, looks like improving for Pletcher, but inexperienced, only raced against small fields
9 Mambo in Seattle - another improving, good %E, excellent race here, one to beat
5 Macho Again - great race here, good fight, traffic last, but closing time at limit, may not want longer
11 Pyro - big closer, looked to hang last, needs to stay close, not convinced that he wants 10f
6 Cool Coal Man - Zito, raced w Big Brown last, could get piece

Exbx: 5-8-9 Exbx: 8-9 Tri: 8-9/5-6-8-9-11/5-6-8-9-11

Good luck and have fun!
