Fleet Fleet First to Finish First in Big A feature
Shifting the scene to the Big A where the preliminary allowances feature for state-breds 3 & up going a flat mile looks loaded with possibility that you will be rewarded wherever you land. I left five of these New Yorkers open but ultimately must settle on Fleet First.
In a race where the contestants have had many chances in this condition, Fleet First will try to parlay his smart maiden win into two straight in only his third lifetime start.
After getting a run in his debut, the money showed when blinkers were added and the George Weaver gelded 3YO responded with a 3-1/2 length going-away score. Coming back to work sharply since, he owns enough tactical speed and kick to get this done with today's favorable race dynamics.
Taking Fleet First (8-1) to win with no price restrictions, and key-boxing him first and second with Frost Jordan (8-1) for barn that's a profitable 38% after adding blinkers, Wise Guide (20-1), a willing third over surface and distance and returns for barn 25% profitable first off the claim, and Chrisandlorisposse (3-1), returning to the main track for live Jimmy Jerkens shed.
