The weekend arrives and another 10-race card at Saratoga Race Course for The Saratoga Special’s handicapping team to dig into.

Spotty results so far here in Week 2 with the slow-starting newcomer Jessica Paquette clicking and finding her groove (5 winners Wednesday, 4 winners Thursday) along with “Garlic” Rob Whitlock. They’re still chasing fast-starting Tom Law, who got a little cold Thursday but still leads the way with 22 winners.

Graded stakes action returns and a solid field for the Grade 3 Lake George for 3-year-old fillies on the grass. Chad Brown, off to a 2-for-21 start with seven seconds through six days, sends out the quartet of Fluffy Socks, Amy C, Technical Analysis and Minaum in search of his fifth win in the 1-mile stakes. He won it with Selflessly in 2020, Regal Glory in 2019, Ancient Secret in 2016 and Mrs McDougal in 2015.

Here are the handicappers’ picks for Friday, July 23. Good luck.
