Sanford Stakes preview for Thorofan

Once again, I have been called into service to handicap one of the weekend’s feature races for horse racing fan site Thorofan.com.

Currently, my record stands at a perfect two-for-two in picking the winner of my assigned race for Thorofan’s Handicapper’s Corner, including 19.90-to-one shot Exhi in the Lexington Stakes (I’m going to brag about that one for a long time). This time around, my mission was to break down Sunday’s Sanford Stakes at Saratoga Race Course.

The Sanford is one of the first graded stakes tests in the country for two-year-olds, so I did not have much to go by in terms of on-track performance. The only horse in the field I had any real prior knowledge on was Kentucky Juvenile winner Lou Brissie. In all honesty, when it comes to two-year-olds, I’m probably a more useful handicapper with Quarter Horses.

With that said, the Sanford should be an entertaining race and I look forward to seeing if I can keep my run of good fortune going on Sunday.
