Trying to get off the Duck

We all know Todd Pletcher has the Saratoga 2012 training title wrapped up with enough distance over runner up Chad Brown, but who is at the bottom of  the rankings.

Who has no wins with double digit starts at this meet? One Trainer trying to get shipping money and get off the Duck is William Badgett Jr.

Out of 25 starters he is sitting with a duck with no winners and only 2 seconds and 4 thirds for the meet.

If you  play your betting money figuring Badgett Jr. has to get a win before shipping day, you will have two shots today as he saddles NY Bred 8-1 shot U Whippersnapper in a 20K Maiden Claimer in Race 3 and His Own Beat a Kentucky Bred 3 year old going in a 65K Maiden Claimer at 15-1 in Race 4.

He has nobody running on Monday so today has to be the day for Badgett to get out of  Spa  Town with a win.

Already assured of a Duck at the meet is Barclay Tagg with 0 wins out of 24 Starters. He has no entries today or tomorrow.

Barclay swung for the fences yesterday with 4 entries and coming close with Sky Blazer 3rd in the Bernard Baruch and Jersey Town 3rd in the Forego Stakes.
