#TeamNR Preview of the 2014 Whitney Handicap
2 – Prayer for Relief – 20/1
The surface at Saratoga may just be what Prayer for Relief has been searching for to close on. We like his 4th place finish in the Oaklawn Handicap closing in a fast pace 47, 1:11, 1:36. We expect the race to go at the same or a faster pace today. Must use in the exotics.
6 – Departing – 6/1
A very consistent colt who has won 6 of his last 10 races and only finished off the board once. He finished 3rd in his last race against G1 and has been knocking on the door for a victory in this class. He can do it today at a nice price.
5 – Palace Malice – 1/1
Palace Malice will be stretching back out to a 1 MILE 1/8 after winning at a MILE in his last two races. He fought back to hold off Goldencents last time out and showed that he’s a fighter. Can he fight to the end again today? Yes. The pace should setup perfect for him to sit back in 3rd or 4th and then make a up the stretch. One to beat.
