PICK OF THE DAY- RACE 3 4 HORSE LOST TICKET
Race 9 - 3 Mrs Orb
Race 9 Longshot Forever Change
RACE 2 -2 fillies going against the boys in here with the
5 Lutescoot N boogie going 1st time out for the dynamic duo Asmussen/ Santana Jr.
8 Malibu Luna - another filly who is coming in here with a race under her belt finishing 4th last time out by only 2 lengths
3- Boss Bear- Comes in here for the maker/ Irad Ortiz Jr Duo with a nice solid work over this surface before today.
Race 3- Some of these horses fast each other last time out. With the 1- Olendon - 4 Lost Ticket, and 7 Turf War
4- Lost Ticket finished behind the 1 Olden and Turf War last time out over this surface going 5 in a half having to go very wide around the bend and not getting into his normal strides until late down the lane. I loved this horse 2 back when he won going 6 on the grass at belmont. 6f might be better suited for him but will take another shot with him on top today going 5 in a half with Johnny V back aboard for the second time and knowing when it's time to move with her now.with her being a closer and should be a hot early pass in here to set up perfect for her.
1- Olendon- Just missed last time out stalking a hot pace was sitting on a perfect trip to get the job done where she finished 2nd Irad stays aboard for the Chad Brown 4-year-old
7 Turf War- goes 2nd time out for the red hot Clemente barn/ Rosario Duo who back aboard today after ridding her back in the past winning 3 back at Belmont. Should be tough in here going 2nd time out for a new barn.
8 Originator- The Ian Wilkes barn has been having a great meet so far here with being 60 percent in the money with 10 horses running with 3 wins 3 seconds and 1 3rd. Cuts back to printing on the turf after winning going a mile at Churchill is 2 for 3 over this surface in the money with 1 win and 1 second. Should be a decent price here with Tyler Gaffilone aboard.
Kitten’s Covergirl- Cuts back to sprinting on the turf were she is 3 for 5 in the money so far going this distance and 10 for 18 in the money lifetime for a barn where his horses always show up on race day can be a sleeper here.
My Picks- 4-7-8-1
Linda Rice sends out two in here with the
1 Heirloom Kitten takes a big step up in class today and Stretchs out today to the ⅛ after showing some early speed last time out and winning going away by 8 lengths with next time out winner Bouna Fina.
6 Grit and Glory- won for claimers of 14k here going this distance on July 16th is taking a step up in class but if there is a got pass upfront can be closing on strong with being 2 for 2 over this surface with 1 win and 1 3rd and 2 for 2 going this distance with 1 win and 1 3rd.
2- Blood Line Finished 3rd by only 3 lengths last time out at this level and distance gunning for the lead with setting some fast fractions and getting hunted down coming down the stretch being on the rail. Luis Saez gets the call today. Very dangerous in here with The Gargan barn starting to get things going now at this meet.
4 First Rate should bounce back here today after running 4th behind the 2 Blood moon last time out
5 Naughty Prince- Can be very dangerous in here at a price for the Kantarmaci barn who does very well the 1st time off the claim. Were the barn claimed this horse on aug 5th for 16k going this distance for claimers of 16k. Coming in here undefeated in his life as well as going this distance and over this surface.
My Picks- 2-4-5-6
12 Dream Chasing- is going to be real tough to beat in here for the Red hot clement bar with finishing 2nd last time out at this level with some early speed and cutting back to 5 in a half which is perfect for her.
8 Big Red Girl- Gets back on the turf were she ran 3rd two races were she has some trouble throughout that race and still got up for 3rd.
11 Bonus Baby- Drops down 1st time for a tag today and tries the turf for the first time. should be a decent price in here
2- New York Supreme also drops in for a tag for the first time and tries the turf for the first time after showing two nice works leading into this race
7 Frenchie Frou Frou- Cuts back to sprinting on the turf after finishing 3rd at this level 2 back going 6 furlongs on the turf.
Race 6 - Favorite is beatable
5 Off Topic- Should be the heavy favorite in here for the recently Pletcher barn who just started getting red hot this meat with the leading rider of the meet Irad aboard.
3 Indy Union (LONG SHOT)-stretched back out to a mile and ⅛ were she finished 2nd last year going this distance over this surface in the slope. Alvarado get back aboard her today were I think she gets right back to where she left off last year coming in here 3rd time off the bench with some nice works over at Belmont coming into this race.
1 Risky Mandate coming in here with 2 bullet works in the am over this surface and she is 3 for 3 in the money over this surface so far finishing 3rd last time outgoing 7 she stretched out today and is 5 for 5 lifetime
Foxtail- shoots right back here aug 5th and getting the impressive win by 6 lengths for oc of 62k 1st time off the claim for the kantarmaci barn and before that ran July 30th where she was claimed for 25k getting he wins as well in. Comes in here red hot being 2 for 2over this surface. But I have my doubts about maybe bouncing here and not running too well with them running her back so quickly once again.
2 Its A Gamble- Been watching this horse train while training over at Belmont before going to Saratoga can break nicely out of the gate and can come in here with a bang first time out! Should be a decent price in the Kelly Breen Barn with Rosario getting the call today!
7 Daggerboard- first time out for the Brax Cox barn with the barns go-to rider Castellano aboard today.
8- I’m Blaming You- Comes in here the first time for the Doug Oneil bar who has been working very well and out of his handful of horses that are stationed in new york they all have been running pretty well.
2- Think White Duke- Has Been knocking at the door in his last 3 outings
If any scratched the 1 Eagle Orb- out of Orb go 1st time out for the rudy barn with Irad Ortiz aboard.
The 3 Mandate and the 6- Brave are here faced each other on july 5th With Brad getting the win right in front of Mandate.
6- Bray - had to go 4-5 wide around the turn closed strong and made it look easy. 1st time off the claim for the rudy barn being 4 for 4 lifetimes with 2 wins 1 second and 1 3rd and 3 for 3. Irad Ortiz gets the call today for the first time
3- Mandate- Think this 3-year-old is going to take another big step forward today and just found himself for the red hot Pletcher Barn two back was in the 10th spot did not show that extra wire coming down the stretch when facing bray 2 back. The last outing over this surface with Jose Ortiz aboard for the first time showed that nice clocking kick to get the win. Jose Stays aboard and will be battling it out down the stretch with Bray. Being 1 for 1 over this surface and 2 for 4 going this distance with 1 win and 1 second.
2 Turn of Events- Race can set up possible perfect for this 3-year-old who got the win last time out over this surface going this distance for claimers of 40. With having som early speed and there not being a lot of speed in here today, Get Luis Saez back aboard today who finished second on him last time aboard should set him up in the right spot here today to try and make a nice upset.
8 The Sinner Is You- Can also possibly makes a big upset with showing some possible early speed in past races. Were he might try and gun for the lead and take it wire to wire if the 2 doesn’t come out clean if they get into a speed duel will set up perfect for the 3- mandate and 6 Bray. 2 back going this distance over the Polly at woodbine got the win for oc 40k.
5 Battalion- Should also be in the right in the thick of things today for the mott barn who has been rolling in some nice longshot on the board so far this meet. Johny v on him today for the second time after finishing 2nd last time on him over this surface finishing right behind a horse who has been on a nice winning steak winning factor. Johnny v will probably try and place him today a little more forwardly placed so he’s not trying to come from way out to close.
My Picks- 3-2-6-8-5
There is a good amount of speed in this 6 horse featured stake race of the day today with the Union Ave Handicap going 7 furlongs on the Dirt.
With the 1- Ratsjkowski/ 5 Carrera Cat / and 6 NewlyMinted might go for it as well being to the outside.
If there is a hot early pass and they get into a speed duel on the front end with the favorite the 1 Ratsjkowski being in the speed duel I think this race will set up perfect for the
2 Mrs ORB- who comes in here 2nd time off the bench(layoff) for the well trained Micheal Miceli barn who just missed the win last time out Closing like a bat out of hell getting up to finish a beck behind the 1 Ratajowski out. Were Ratajowski was able to sit on the lead easily and set the early fractions with not a lot of pressure.
2 Forever Changed( Long Shot)- I think I will bounce back and run a nice race today 2nd time off the layoff. Where she is 1 for 2 over this track and 1 for 1 going this distance and has always been right in the thick of things.if there is a lot of speed on the front end he can stalk this field well in here and be closing down the lane strong!
3- Ratsjkowski very quick comes in here 2nd time out for the motion barn after getting the win last time out cuts back to 7 furlongs today and if he does not get pressured on the front end today should win this race.
5 Carrera Cat Interested to see what he does here for the sharp Trainer John Morrison, does he gun for the lead and dual out for the lead with the 1 in here or does he try and sit back right off the pace. 3 for 3 in the money over this surface with 1 win 3 seconds and is 4 for 4 in the money going this distance with 2 wins 1 second
4 Collegevile Girl shipps in here from Parx today like horses that ship in, If there is an early speed duel could set up nicely for her to finish in the thick of things but don’t think she will win!
MY PICKS- 3- 2-1-4-5
7 Cholate Cookies- Going to be real tough to beat in here
8 Long Shot- Shipps in from Keeland
4- Two Cent Toosie - Has been right in the thick of things his last could at-bats with some early speed and cuts back to 1 mile today were I think she will be best suited today
