What’s down is up, what’s up is down. Such is the story of 2020 and it continues with the Saratoga Race Course meeting and The Saratoga Special.

We pushed back production of Issue 7 of The Special by a day due to power and internet outages at the home office in Fair Hill, Md. caused by remnants of Tropical Storm Isaias, so we’ve moved the picks for Wednesday online. We’ll be back with a loaded edition Thursday, presented as always by Eclipse Thoroughbred Partners, with full coverage of everything that’s happened since our last issue and also look ahead to the rest of the week.

Wednesday’s card features one less race than originally carded with the opening steeplechase handicap pushed back until later in the meet because of the weather. That leaves a card of nine races, including the featured $85,000 Summer Colony for fillies and mares that haven’t won a sweepstakes in 2020.

The 9-furlong Summer Colony goes as the fourth race on the card with a post time of 2:29 p.m. Post time for the opener Wednesday will be 1:21 p.m.

Here are the handicappers’ selections for Wednesday, Aug. 5. Be safe, stay dry and good luck.
