Keep an Open Mind on Garnet Street
Today's featured Open Mind overnight stakes has drawn only five entrants but this is one competitive heat. The most interesting of the quintet is the 5YO mare Garnet Street (6-1).
Chances are high that value is a possibility as the filly is taking a fairly significant rise. However, the positives seem to outweigh the possible negatives.
Garnet Street, a three-time winner and a second in seven starts on this surface exits a recent key race that already has produced a pair of winners in three subsequent starters. Razor sharp, the distance suits, she owns tactical speed in a relatively pace-less event and trainer Pat Reynolds is a lofty 36% effective at this stand. Her blowout for this was second fastest of 79 in peer group for the week at Belmont Park.
Taking Garnet Street to win at 3-1 or greater and key-boxing her in multiples with classy Street Secret (2-1), well spotted in her dirt debut, and Mischief Maker (3-1) which should appreciate the added distance and outside draw.
