If She Doesn’t Get Stuck in Fort Lee…
Both division of the New York Stallion series for the colts and for the fillies are both skull-busting exercises. Therefore we're throwing deep in the second division that has attracted a large field of fillies featuring every style imaginable.
But now matter how it's viewed, the pace figures to be strong and the winning done by a late runner. Of those, it' the New Jersey-based Old Harbor (12-1) that's appears most interesting.
Her figures quickly improved when switched to turf, first showing speed when blinkers were added going a mile then finishing gamely late while racing between fillies in the stretch turning back to 6 furlongs.
The mini-stretch to 7F and the removal of blinkers suggests this is the spot her trainer has been pointing for at this meet. Her outside post suits, she has enough speed to maintain contact with the speed and her recent blowout at her Monmouth base was 3rd fastest of 93 peers at the trip that week at the Shore track.
She'll need some racing luck but then so will all of them.
Taking Old Harbor to win at 10-1 or greater and key-boxing her in exactas with Selenite (8-1) and Traipse in Utopia (20-1)
