Sleepy Hollow or Bust


In today's centerpiece Empire Classic on New York-Bred Showcase Day, the logical favorite is, of course, Statebred of the Year 2010, Haynesfield. If you can win the Jockey Club Gold Cup, you should be able to handle statebred peers. But at no time this year has he resembled last year's 4-year-old, so we're laying, not playing, the 8-5 early line choice.

Now Inherit The Gold is very fast, and Johannesburg Smile has some gas, too. That's why we're opting for late running Icabad Crane (4-1), who repeats favorable turf to dirt pattern here and has great spacing returning for Graham Motion.

Taking Icabad Crane to win at no lower than early line odds and keying boxing him in multiples with his rivals listed here.

It takes a Village


In today’s allowance feature at Belmont that has drawn a half dozen, there are several faster horses and several others that have been tested and fared fairly well in tougher spots.

But lone speed is always dangerous and it appears Carrington Village is poised to play that role.

Making his fifth lifetime start, he’s done nothing wrong on the Equiform scale. Following an opening Compression Line came a New Pace Top, followed by a Reversal then another NPT.

Coming back in three weeks--not the usual tack from the Pletcher playbook--Johnny V should put this colt in the game from the start and control tempo.

Taking Carrington Village to win at 7-2 or greater and keying him in multiples with Won Fast Bullet and Keep Me Informed.
