2022 2-year-olds/2023 3-year-olds   Handicapping

Started 7/2/21 by smartyslew; 216207 views.



Chad just had two run at Tampa Bay on the turf. Both firsters. The even money favorite,  Napoleonic  War, a War Front colt, out of a Street Cry mare, managed a dead heat win after a slow start, and the 3rd place finisher Unexpected Outcome, an MTR colt, out of a Galileo mare, was wide throughout. Those two will probably stay on the turf, while Credit Event should get a shot on the dirt.

Smile Happy is a P/N with a Dam loaded with Non Phalaris Sires and Mares within 5 generations
IMO this is a Brilliant Mating by the Breeder  Run Happy (speed)/ Pleasant Tap 1x 2nd Bc classic to Api  10f
2nd Bc Sprint 6f, won 2 g1 @ 10f, 3rd in the derby to Unbridled, ITM 17 graded races, 1st or 2nd in 13 graded races
6f - 10f.
on the Dam Side in the 5th generation there are 16 lines of Sires and Mares 12 of them are non Phalaris types
this makes Smile Happy special in todays window of time. 9 N/P Chefs on the dam side within 5 generations
some more than once, Major elite Stamina to go with Sire Run Happys speed.
Smile happy is set up to be a elite runner or a Chef De Race or both. 10 lines 1x thru to La Troienne doesn't hurt
within 5 generations, 4 positions of stamina N/P chefs on the dam side and 1 stam chef P/N Nijinsky CS on the sire side.
I don't know what this says about carrying 126 pounds on the first Saturday in May. He was foaled in February.
Animal Kingdom in 2011 was the last P/N to win the derby. Smarty Jones 2004 P/N, War Emblem 2002 P/N
Giacamo 2005 The only N/P type to win the derby in the 21st Century.

Check out this Turfers MSW win at one mile by 14 lengths on dirt E 82), he's a monster

on turf, Can probably beat most of these on dirt, 8-1 right now on the futures

is he going on the TC trail is the Question, I suggest using in the Exactas instead

for the win if you play the futures, He has a  E 107 on turf. I really like him on turf.

Ready A. P. is back training. She had an impressive debut, then went straight to a stakes race against the boys and ran second to graded stakes placed, Run Curtis Run). She just worked a slow 3f on the 23rd at Payson Park.

James Aloysius is also back in training. Both of these horses are exciting three year old prospects, that showed significant talent as juvies.
