September 3 recap from Saratoga

There were two stakes races on the books yesterday, the Saratoga Dew for older fillies and mares foaled in the state of New York and the grade three With Anticipation for two year old colts and geldings. The With Anticipation has served as a stepping stone to the Breeders Cup Juvenile Turf since its inception back in 2007.

Wicked Diva took early command and never relenquished the lead, at two or three points in the stretch run it looked like she was going to get passed though. The horses that finished behind her, Bankers Buy and Don't Forget Gil had every opportunity to win and they did not capitalize on it.

Maidens seem to do well in the With Anticipation, Soldat made his turf debut a successful one. He won by three lengths over the 2/1 favorite Powhatan County who made a belated run with an 1/8 of a mile left to get up for second. Sensational Slam was never a factor after stalking the early pace and going backwards as soon as the real running started.
