On Thursday at Saratoga, the New York breeding program will take center stage in the $100,000 Saratoga Dew Stakes. The mile and an eighth race is restricted to fillies and mares foaled in New York and has drawn a field of seven horses.

Tahoe Tigress has been installed as the 2-1 morning line favorite for trainer Jeremiah Englehart. The five-year-old mare will have Irad Ortiz, Jr. in the irons after the pair teamed up to win by two lengths against optional claiming competition in June at Belmont. The stakes-placed mare is looking for the first stakes win of her sixteen race career and has won seven times. She was fifth in the Saratoga Dew in 2013.

Michael Friedman entry trying to rebound 

Michael Friedman will send out Carameaway and Dreaming of Cara as an entry for owned Richard Greeley. The pair has been installed at 3-1 on the morning line and both are winless so far this year. Carameaway will have Rajiv Maragh aboard while her entrymate will carry Cornelio Velasquez. Both Carameaway and Dreaming of Cara were last in their most recent starts and will attempt to rebound.

Easy Living another rising star for Clement

Also in the field is Easy Living at morning line odds of 7-2 for Christophe Clement. Joel Rosario will be aboard the three-year-old daughter of Big Brown who cost $170,000 as a yearling for owner Cheyenne Stables LLC. She has won two of her four starts and was last seen winning against allowance company at Belmont Park. The Saratoga Dew Stakes will be her first attempt against stakes competition.
