Mental Toughness and Preparedness


Today's Skidmore is a skullbuster. It's a 5-1/2 furlong sprint for juvenile turfers and there's one very interesting entrant in the group.

Mentality (3-1) was entered against her own kind Wednesday, was scratched, and is reentered here vs. males. Running fillies against colts is nothing new for trainer Wesley Ward.

The replay is worth checking. Taking pressure every step of the way, she refused to be passed in the lane despite several challenges. Santana rode her then, he re-rides here, and Ward once again is spotting the New York bred miss vs. open rivals.

Taking Mentality to win at 5-2 or greater and exacta key-boxes with Todd's uncoupled pair, Dial One (7-2) and EL Dulce (5-2).

IF ON DIRT: Taking Main Track Only mate Nuclear Option (4-1) to win,m no price restrictions

Gogettthemoneyannie


There's certainly no shortage of speed in today's Union Avenue Stakes for sprinting NYB fillies and mares.

The choice is Clipthecouponannie (6-1) whose best races have come when she's fresh, she's placed well with her peers and can sit right off the speed from her mid-post position until Johnny is ready. She has some warts, then so do most of these.

Taking Clipthecouponannie to win at 4-1 or greater and key-boxing exactas with highly consistent fave Quezon (9-5) and the sharp Court Dancer (5-1) from the live Servis shed.

Betting the XPress


There's no shortage of speed or talent in today's featured Bolton Landing for juvenile turf fillies sprinting 5-1/2 furlongs.

If you missed March X Press's (8-1) racing debut here two weeks ago, check the replay. Troubled at the start yet confidently handled thereafter, after tipping into the clear leaving headstretch, she showed a great turn of foot to break maiden.

She gives away experience but has the race over the course and the confidence of her trainer to enter her right back against some speedy competition.

Taking March X Press to win at 5-1 or greater and key-boxing multiples with Fairyland (5-1) , Mentality (7-2) and Madame X (10-1).
