7 – MUNCHKIN MONEY (6/1) was pulled up in the Hettinger after tossing her head at the gate. Throw that race out. Beaten a neck in the $150 Yaddo in August at Saratoga and was second behind the top horse in the Mount Vernon in May and the Hettinger in 2018.
RACE 10 – 1 MILE – EMPIRE DISTAFF HANDICAP $250,000
1 – NEWLY MINTED (5/2) won the 201k Fleet Indian at Saratoga last time, his first at a distance. Made it clear distance is no problem by winning by 9. This Linda Rice trainee has won 4 of 5 starts since April, all by big margins.

6 – OUT OF ORBIT (8/1) tried a New York state-bred stakes for the first time in her last 12 starts and went gate to wire to win the $100k Saratoga Dew at 1 1/8 miles at Saratoga. Will have to have his running shoes on again today with the top horse breathing down his neck.0
