International Star Could Prove Well Named
The final stakes on the final day of the 2014 Belmont spring-summer meet is the Rockville Center for state-bred 2-year-olds featuring an exciting prospect named International Star (7-5).
His debut was ultra impressive, drawing off to win by a short pole in very fast time with something in reserve. The bad news is that was grass and this is dirt. However, it gave him experience overall and at the 6 furlong trip.
While trainer Mike Michael is noted for his turf runner-success for the Ramseys, the owner is known to be aggressive when he thinks he has the goods and just might here. And Maker is 22% successful going turf to dirt.
Taking International Star to win, no price restrictions, and key-boxing the exacta with fast working and experienced Bustin It and preciously bred first-timer Elusive New Yorker.
