Here we go again! Unfortunately, we are looking at more rain affecting some of the best racing in the world. Rain has been in the forecast for August 7th and 8th for the past week. Rain totals have fluctuated slightly as thunderstorms are being forecast for tomorrow afternoon/evening.
The chart above shows the comparison of the latest models and the big spread between them due to uncertainty in thunderstorms coming through the area. Here is what we know:
Here is the Uncertainty:
Synopsis: With the potential for thunderstorms looking increasingly likely in Saratoga starting around 2-3pm could greatly impact the last half of the racing card Wednesday, August 7th. There are only 2 turf races in the late half of the race card, Race 6 (Mahony Stakes) and Race 10 ($40k MCL). These races could potentially run into a lot of scratches if Yielding/Off. The card on Thursday is likely to have scratches due to the expected rain Wedesnday/Thursday. As always check out @g1handicapping on twitter for live weather updates!
