A Play--and an Apology


First the apology. Yesterday I do believe was the first unintended missed deadline in 10 years; there's always a first time, I suppose.

Not making excuses, just a short explanation that we've been dealing with some health issues on the home front, and I guess my brain was on overload.

You saw that "headline" Sunday FRA;;that was intended as a place holder, a space that went unfilled.

Sorry, again, but no full blown analysis here. I did do the work however and there's value in today's Caress Stakes at 5-1/2 furlongs on turf.

Taking versatile Miss Ella (8-1) to win at 5-1 or greater and key-boxing exactas with Fair Point (9-2) and maturing Ruby Notion (8-1).

Will atch up with Running Totals on Wednesday. Thanks for your loyalty and patience...

Distance Will Prove the Difference in CCAO


In the Acorn at Belmont we thought Abel Tasman (8-5) might be vulnerable on the cutback to a one-turn mile and tried to beat her with Salty (5-2). As it turned out, both fillies ran great and Salty might have had to do more work, so we'll take her back today, right?

Not so fast my friends. The CCAO is nine furlongs, which is Abel Tasman's wheelhouse and she wouldn't be here unless she impressed her trainer in her final work. She did, and she's here, and she will be a very tough out.

Taking Abel Tasman to win, no price restrictions, and an exacta box with Salty.

With head and heart, it’s Lady Eli in the Diana


I was sorely tempted into trying to beat Lady Eli (4-5) in the Grade 1 Diana but I keep staring at her lifetime slate of (11) 8-3-0, the fact she likes the course and is 2-for-2 at this trip. She's spotting weight here and with enough wise guys against her here, early line odds are very possible.

We're taking her to win, no price restrictions, and key boxing exactas with Antonoe (3-1) and Quidira (12-1).
