As we move to the first Saturday in the meet, the first grade 1 of the season is upon us and we get to see the great filly Lady Eli. Up against her stablemate Antonoe, local trainer Chad brown seems to have this grade 1 locked up for the second year in a row. Let try and make some money around it!

Every day throughout the meet, our horse racing insider Brian "The Closer" Mariano will give you his picks to help you win at the windows. The picks will be in order of preference and will include an early Pick 5 ticket, late pick 4 ticket and a best bet on the card! Follow him on twitter @Mariano_closer for his up to the minute selections and updates from Saratoga!
