Weekday racing at Saratoga resumes Wednesday July 30 with the $100,000 Coronation Cup Stakes serving as the feature in the penultimate race of a ten-race card.
The Coronation, a five and a half furlong turf sprint for three year-old fillies, draws a field of eleven including an also eligible. Recoupe is the lukewarm 7/2 morning line favorite for trainer Michael Trombetta after an allowance win at Penn National and three wins in her last four starts. Breaking from post six, Recoupe will be ridden by Rosie Napravnik.
Recoupe favored in competive field
Recoupe is sandwiched by a pair of 5/1 shots. To her outside is the Graham motion-trained Stars Above Me, a Great Britain import who will be making her first U.S. start following a third-place effort at Newmarket in her last outing. To the inside of Recoupe, is Scatcapade who is conditioned by turf ace Christope Clement and ridden by Joel Rosario. Scatcapade exits a fourth place finish against allowance foes in her last start.
Pletcher/Valazquez tough again
When Todd Pletcher and John Valazquez team up at the Spa, bettors rightfully take notice of the winning pair. Those connections team up in the Coronation with Elena Strikes, who will break from the outside post as the 4/1 second choice. Elena Strikes exits an allowance score in June at Belmont after a third-place finish in the Jersey Girl Stakes – a race that came back live after the runner-up, Size, came back to dazzle in the Grade III Iowa Oaks.
