Saratoga Selections By Frank Lyons: Saturday, August 19, 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 19 program at Saratoga has 10 races on the agenda including the $600,000 Alabama Stakes (G1) for three-year-old fillies at a mile and a quarter trip on the main track, and the $300,000 Lake Placid Stakes (G2T) for three-year-old fillies going nine-furlongs on the grass.

Frank had three winners on Friday’s 10-race program at The Spa and finished the day with a positive five percent return on investment (ROI*), or a flat-bet profit of nine cents for every two dollars wagered on his top selections on the card.

Frankie will be giving out his picks FREE of charge for the duration of Saratoga’s 2017 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.
