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, September 2 program at Saratoga Race Course has 12 races on tap including four graded stakes races– the $750,000 Woodward Stakes Presented by NYRA Bets, the $350,000 Spinaway Stakes (G1), the $300,000 Saranac Stakes (G3T), and the $200,000 Glens Falls Stakes (G3T). The star-laden program also has a $73,120 carryover in the $2 Pick 6.
Frank touted a pair of winners on Friday’s program at The Spa including the first-time starter C Z Rocket, who won yesterday’s eighth race and paid $14.60. He 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!
