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 Sunday, July 23 program at Saratoga has 11 races on tap including the $300,000 Coaching Club American Oaks (G1) for sophomore fillies going a mile and an eighth on the main track.
Frank had a great opening day at the Spa, giving out three winners and posting a positive 56 percent return on investment with his top selections cumulatively. He will be giving out his picks FREE of charge for the duration of the Saratoga meet. Click HERE to see who he likes on Sunday’s card!
