Raes, Your Trainer for your two year old New York bred Filly Ready A P needs some works
from the gate. Race 5 yesterday at Belmont gave the field a handicap lead and won by 8 lengths.
She has a Beautiful Pedigree IMO and is a G1 prospect. Race Her in Open Company, She got Her
State bred win. MTR baby
I saw it. She broke poorly and got steadied. She sure showed some speed to get back in the race, and never stopped. On the negative side, the race was slow. Nevertheless, you don't often see horses run like that first out. Clement is not known for first time starters either, although MTR progeny are usually precocious. I agree, she looks like grade one material. Can't wait to see how far she wants to go. with AP Indy as her damsire.
Message 4 has 5 entrants entered in the Sanford Stakes g3, 6 f, Saturday July 17
field of 12. at Saratoga for 2 yr olds. The ones from my list are projected to be
more than 6f sprinters, the distance of this non Lasix race. (precocious)
Race 9, For 2 yr olds. :
2 Candy Landing 7-2 Walsh E 85 6th bumped the winner at the start
5 Dance Code 12-1 J C Vazquez E 81 3rd Stumbled badly at start
7 Ottoman Empire-rf 10-1 Amoss E 87 4th
9 Headline Report 5-1 W Ward E 90 2nd
11 Seize The Night 20-1 D Stewart E 87
The Favorite is not on my list #1 Wit 8-5 Pletcher/ I Ortiz. E 91 WON by 8 E 100
Wit was Much The best by 8 lengths, Weird start, 4 horses stumbled.
Looking forward to seeing James Aloysius on Saturday, debuting in an 8.5f turf race. I hope Garghan has him ready. 200k purchase, out of a Lord of England(Top 3 year old in Germany in 2006) mare.
The tail female has multiple European Country nicks
no way to use the Dosage or CMP's , he has Speed on top and World Class
BMS line of Shirley Heights Stamina line and in 5 generations 7 lines of family 2d
and a few 5h family right there is a terrific Turf Pedigree.
He is one of many in recent years to have a world class 8 generation female foundation. IMO
JAMES ALOYSIUS C, 2019 DP = 4-0-6-0-0 (10) DI = 2.33 CD = 0.80
Checked the field for that race, there is Some good prospects and top Turf trainers.
8.5 f is a warmup for most in here.
I look forward to Saratoga every year, just for the juvy races. Many trainers wait until this meet to unveil the cream of the crop. Undoubtedly we'll see some BC Juvy runners show up over the next several weeks. As always, I follow the MTRs that are already working, hoping to see a couple in those races. I am usually not disappointed. More Than Real, Catholic Boy, Selflessly, and Stopshoppingmaria, all showed up at this meet before participating in a BC Juvy race.
