It has been an unusually slow start for at the meet for Chad Brown by the standards he created for himself the past couple of years. But you cannot keep a good trainer down for long, especially with all the options of horses to run for him. Credit Enhancement makes her career debit for Chad, who wins at 26% with two-year-old first time starters on turf. The horse has been in Saratoga since June prepping for her debut. Despite the outside post position, Irad Ortiz Jr. should give Credit Enhancement a good stalking trip and get up for the maiden victory.

One of the pleasant surprises at the meet is trainer Orlando Noda. He is 5 for 14 at the meet. Archumybaby ran third going shorter last out and now returns to level of her last victory when she made her first start for Noda. Both of those races were at six furlongs but now she returns to her favorite distance of seven furlongs. In her career she is 5-3-2-0 at the distance.
