The Green Sheet has expanded its handicapping coverage this summer, as Frank Lyons–Breeder’s Cup winning trainer and former on-air personality with Television Games Network (TVG)–has signed on to give his selections for the 2017 meet at Saratoga Race Course in Saratoga Springs, NY, which kicked off its 40-day summer stand on Friday, July 21.
In addition to a multi-year stint as a host and racing analyst on TVG, Lyons saddled 1995 Breeder’s Cup Sprint (G1) winner Desert Stormer. He also bought and campaigned Santa Anita Derby (G1) winner Castledale. He’s currently a bloodstock agent and the host of a weekly radio show in Lexington, Kentucky.
The Saturday, July 22 program at Saratoga has 11 races on tap including the $150,000 Sanford Stakes (G3) for two-year-old colts going six-furlongs on the main track, and the $500,000 Diana (G1T) for fillies and mares three-years-old and upward going a mile and an eighth on the turf.
Frank will be giving out his picks FREE of charge for the duration of the Saratoga meet. Click HERE to see who he likes on Saturday’s card!
