Penn Derby rematch between Nyquist, Exaggerator might not mean much long term

Following Arrogate's record-shattering win in Saturday's Travers (G1), Vance Hanson wonders whether an upcoming fifth showdown between Nyquist and Exaggerator this year in the Pennsylvania Derby (G2) will mean much by the end of the year.

Juvenile turf performers will be in the spotlight as Saratoga kicks off its final week of racing. Wednesday's feature is the $200,000 With Anticipation (G2), while fillies will compete in Thursday's $100,000 P.G. Johnson.

Scott Shapiro reports from Del Mar on the jockey and trainers races that should come down to the wire.

Arrogate personifies a late bloomer

James Scully revisited Arrogate's record-setting victory in Saturday's Travers Stakes (G1) to discuss how the sophomore epitomizes the idea of a late bloomer.

Arrogate, making his stakes debut, demolished Saratoga's decades-old track record for 1 1/4 miles by taking the Travers (G1) by 13 1/2 lengths in a time of 1:59.36. The Bob Baffert trainee easily eclipsed the previous standard of 2:00 set by General Assembly way back in the 1979 Travers.

Baffert also visited the winner's circle following the King's Bishop (G1) after Defrong cruised to a wire-to-wire score in the seven-furlong dash.

Turf star Flintshire enjoyed another facile win at the Spa, taking the Sword Dancer Invitational (G1) and remaining undefeated on the year.

Cavorting showed two-turns was no trouble when taking a deep renewal of the Personal Ensign (G1) for older fillies and mares.

Saratoga's major sprints for older horses and fillies and mares were swept this meet when Alfred G. Vanderbilt (G1) hero A. P. Indian won as a prompt favorite in the $700,000 Forego (G1), while Honorable Miss H. (G2) heroine Haveyougoneaway rallied to post the upset in the $500,000 Ballerina (G1) on Saturday.

One race after the Travers, Lady Eli's return in the Ballston Spa (G2) was spoiled when 27-1 long shot Strike Charmer caught the popular filly on the wire.

Ron Flatter compared Flintshire and Tamarkuz following their efforts on Travers Day.

Ed DeRosa took a look at the three-year-old division following Arrogate's Travers win.

Features

Dear Readers,

There have been significant changes to the Handicapper's Edge and Bloodstock Journal newsletters. These changes are meant to produce more analytical content for our readers as well as handicappers who use the information in the newsletters.

Nearly everything has been migrated over to the TwinSpires.com Blog section on TwinSpires.com, including Dick Powell's Handicapping Insights and John Mucciolo's Notebooks. These features are still available, and for free like everything in the newsletters, but are just located in a different place now.

If you have any questions or comments on the new format, please feel free to contact us. Thank you for following the Edge and Journal.
