Repole Is Full of Intent
Well, this winter Mike Repole got in the claiming business. Todd Pletcher trainers some-Calibrachoa most successful of those, clearly-but Bruce Levine trains a few and one of them heads today’s featured 8th at Belmont, a secondary allowance/optional claimer for NYBs.
Following a $16K claim on January 16, Full Of Intent (5-2) has won two straight at a flat mile--off the raise to $25K then again in a preliminary state-bred allowance. In the first, he delivered a New Pace Top but in the second distributed his energy more efficiently and won again. Another forward move is expected with Castellano on the re-ride.
Taking Full Of Intent to win at 2-1 or greater, and key boxing him in multiples with two-time mile winner Newbie (3-1), Honey Mou (8-1), for a barn that’s a profitable 31% effective second time off the claim, and Princess Mara (5-1), in here off a New Pace Top.
