On Wednesday at Saratoga, three-year-old colts and geldings will take to the Inner Turf Course for the inaugural running of the $100,000 Better Talk Now Stakes. The one-mile race has attracted a field of seven sophomores.
The 8-5 favorite on the morning line is Storming Inti who comes out of the Chad Brown barn. The chestnut son of Stormy Atlantic was purchased for $100,000 as a yearling for Santa Rosa Racing Stables and has won four of his ten career starts. A two-time stakes winner, he will be reunited with Alan Garcia who was aboard for both of those victories. After a third-place finish in the Sir Cat Stakes, he will break from post six.
Pure Sensation stretching out to two turns
Second choice at 5-2 on the morning line is Pure Sensation, fresh off of a narrow victory in the Quick Call Stakes. Trained by Christophe Clement, the gray son of Zensational is a homebred for owner Patricia Generazio. Jose Lezcano, aboard for both career victories, will be back in the irons and the pair will break from the outside post. He is stretching out to a route after sprinting in all eight prior efforts.
Craftsman going for two in a row
Also in the field is Craftsman (IRE) who has been tabbed at 4-1 for trained Graham Motion. The Irish-bred son of Mastercraftsman (IRE) began his career in Ireland under the care of Aiden O’Brien and made his United States debut in December. He earned the first stateside win and the second stakes victory of his career last time out. Alex Cintron will be back in the irons and they will break from post five.
