Asset Inflation Wins Doctor J Dub 5th at Saratoga

Asset Inflation took the lead from Polar Axis entering the final  half furlong and went on to  beat that rival by a length in Wednesday's seventh race at Saratoga Race Course.

Frisky Magician finished third, another three-quarters of a length back, in the 5 1/2 furlong turf allowance for 3-year-olds  and up.  The purse was $78,000.

Asset Inflation won in 1:02.37 on the course listed as firm. Irad Ortiz Jr. rode him for trainer/owner David Jacobson.

Doctor J Dub, who was shipped in from Gulfstream Park by trainer Jena Antonucci, finished sixth in the nine-horse field.

Doctor J Dub was scheduled to be ridden byTyler Gaffalione, the leading jockey in wins at the current Gulfstream Park summer meet.  But in a change announced early Wednesday afternoon, Florent Geroux was put on Doctor J Dub.

No immediate explanation was given.  But from a distance, we expect it may have been travel-related.  

Gulfstream  was dark on Wednesday.  He has a busy day scheduled there Thursday, with seven mounts on the ten-race card that has  a 1:15 p.m. first post.

On July 2, Gaffalione rode  Doctor J Dub to a  win in the $75,000 Bob Umphrey Turf Sprint at five  furlongs.
