Saratoga Selections By Frank Lyons: Saturday, August 12, 2017

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, New York.

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, August 12 program at Saratoga has 11 races on the agenda featuring a pair of graded stakes–the $200,000 Adirondack Stakes (G2) for two-year-old fillies going six and a half-furlongs on the main track and the $500,000 Fourstardave Handicap (G1T) for three-year-olds and up at a flat mile trip on the turf.

Saturday’s card at Saratoga also has a $56,462 Pick 6 carryover up for grabs.

Frankie had a great day at The Spa on Friday, giving out five winners on the 10-race card and finishing the day with a positive 40 percent return on investment (ROI*), or a flat-bet profit of 79 cents for each $2 wagered on his top selections.

Frank will be giving out his picks FREE of charge for the duration of Saratoga’s 2017 summer meet. Click HERE to see who he likes on Saturday!

*Return on investment is calculated by placing a hypothetical $2 win wager on all top selections and dividing the net profit by the total amount wagered.
