Saturday night, Saratoga Raceway is presenting the 7th annual Joe Gerrity Memorial Pace with a purse of $260,000. The Gerrity Memorial selects its field by picking the horses with the highest earnings this year from those who entered. They have assembled a nice field of pacers so let's take a look at the field.
Saratoga 7th Pace - $260,000; Joe Gerrity Memorial Pace
1 - Micheal's Power (Aldrich, 6-1) - Last race in high level conditioned pace at Meadowlands suggests he may be returning to form. Despite the rail position, this field may still be too good for him. Share at best.
2 - Dancin Yankee (Morrill, 5-2) - Winner of Franklin Consolation (had post 8 in elim). Finished 5th (DH) in marquee aged pace at Meadowlands. Has good post to succeed. Deserved favoritism.
3 - Scott Rocks (Bouchard, 8-1) - Shows a win over a half mile oval. Oakes (oops, Peterson) trainee will give it a shot. Suspect will come up short.
4 - P H Supercam (Bartlett, 4-1) - Winner last week at the Old Hilltop, May land share but don't see as a winner.
5 - Luck Be Withyou (Macdonald, 3-1) - Winner of Franklin and second place finish in Haughton. Is the hot horse who must be respected.
6 - Doctor Butch (Lachance, 12-1) - Toscano trainee returns to half mile oval which is his specialty. Expect improvement and worth a look at 12-1.
7 - All Bets Off (Kakaley 9-2) - Draws post seven but has been just a step away in most events. Can't ignore.
8 - Domethatagain (Dobson, 10-1) - Death post assignment suggests this one is a toss,
