I love to keep up with the fillies. They don't get nearly enough press. Averly Jane has a pretty impressive resume already, and not many people know of her. The Midshipman filly, out of a Richter Scale mare, is bred for speed, and she has certainly showed it so far for Wesley Ward. She is a multiple stakes winner already.
Another who is more obscure as she debuted at Colonial Downs, is Hidden Connection, by Connect, out of an Awesome Again mare. She is also very fast, but is more likely to stretch out successfully, in my opinion. She is trained by Brett Calhoun.
I have both Fillies on the list, Remember Wes Ward doesn't have many 2 yr olds
that will stretch out to be gr 1 types, If he gets one and hypes it don't discount it,
He is a very good Horseman and knows what he has.
Today 8/26 Saratoga Race 5, 2 yr old MSW one and one eighth mile dirt
8 entrants no firsters entered, Only one entered on the 2 yr old list #8 Keepcalmcarryon 5-2
2nd choice Pletcher/ JV , Morning line favorite Rattle N Roll 2-1, has about the same speed figures
Tom Amoss has #6 Dowagiac Chief 8-1, has 2 races best speed numbers in this field, not ITM
finished 4th in last 8.5 f Turf to winner Limited Liability. a shug runner on our list, 2nd Sweeping
Giant on our list, He might be considered for this race.
This starts the 2 Yr old Juv season, and maybe the derby trail.
LOve and Money racing at SAR today in riskaverse stakes.
I think there are 2 MTRs in that race, didn't have time to look at whole field
I think just Love and Money. She is a speedball. If she can learn to ration out her speed a little better, she could be dangerous. She is lightly raced, so there is room for improvement.
RAESFAN said...While the winner ran a great race, there were quite a few horses in the race that didn't get to do their best running.
Well Astronaut has secured a gate in the BC Turf G1 so I guess I'll be interested to see if anyone else from that race gets in that might do better running than they did in that race. But as usual, expecting some Euro entries in that one and who knows who will show up.
The race at Saratoga today was won by #8 Keepcalmcarryon the only one entered
we had on our list. 2nd place finisher Commander Compton I added to our
list ,he had a troubled trip including bumping out of the gate, Rattle N Roll and the other
one I mention Dowagiac Chief were taken out when Rattle N Roll bolted and finished last and next to last.
And certainly I meant to take nothing from the winner that ran huge. I was watching specifically for Say the Word, who never got to run, while he appeared to be loaded.
