It’s Awesome Baby
New York breds take center stage as the featured race on the flat today is the Evan Shipman at 9 furlongs. It's a field of 8 with a nice blend of speed, mid-range types and late runners.
And did I mention a distance specialist who likes the course?
That would be Awesome Vision (4-1), who's compiled a worthy (4) 2-1-0 slate at this trip and is (2) 1-1-0 at the Spa. Add the fact that trainer Albertrani is 22% profitable in LAY-3 scenarios and the veteran comes up to his preferred distance perfectly off graduating distances and you have a reasonable formula for pari-mutuel success.
Taking Awesome Again to win, no price restrictions, and keying him first and second in multiples with the razor sharp Big Business (9-5), and Escapefromreality (3-1), who had his prep, like the Spa and should be ready to roll here..
