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 Friday, July 28 program at Saratoga has 10 races on tap including the restricted $100,000 Curlin Stakes–for three-year-olds that have not won a graded stakes race over a mile in 2017–to be contested at a mile and eighth on the main track.
Frank will be giving out his picks FREE of charge for the duration of Saratoga’s 2017 summer stand. Click HERE to see who he likes on Friday’s card!
