Opening weekend at Saratoga Race Course comes to a close with a 10-race card Sunday the features the Grade 3, $175,000 Quick Call Stakes presented by the Thoroughbred Retirement Foundation.

A field of 12 was entered for the 5 1/2-furlong turf sprint stakes features, including a pair of main track only runners that could come into play with a somewhat ominous forecast in play for the early-morning and afternoon hours Sunday. The rain and thunderstorm forecast could put Sunday’s three grass race in jeopardy.

The Saratoga Special handicappers factored in that forecast – or at least they should have – and take on the 10-race card. Here are the selections for Sunday, July 16, presented by Toga Party Racing. For more information, call 518-390-5486.
