Sunday’s Saratoga picks – July 18

- -

Where does the time go? Week 1 of the Saratoga Race Course meeting amazingly comes to a close with a 10-race card on tap for Sunday headlined by the $120,000 Coronation Cup for 3-year-old fillies on the grass.

The 5 1/2-furlong stakes goes as the ninth on the card with post time of 5:39. A field of 10 entered, including last-out winners Goin’ Good for trainer Brad Cox and Honey Pants for Christophe Clement, Grade 3 winner Bye Bye and stakes winner Illegal Smile for Wesley Ward.

The day kicks off with the opener – a 5 ½-furlong state-bred maiden for 2-year-olds, as always at 1:05 p.m.

The Saratoga Special’s handicappers bring Week 1 to a close with the selections after decent start to the 40-day meet. Tom Law leads the way with 12 winners after a hot start – nine wins from the first 20 races.
