Heaven Can’t Wait


Today's Spa feature is the Smart N' Fancy Stakes for fillies and mares sprinting 5-1/2 furlongs on turf and it's a beauty, typically contentious given the conditions. We'll take an value offered on Stars Above Me (6-1).

Motion filly was impressive taking her U.S. debut, altering course and bursting through a narrow opening on the fence showing excellent turn of foot inside the final sixteenth. We're banking on a similar performance vs. some formidable opposition here.

Betting Stars Above Me to win at 3-1 or greater, key-boxing exactas with To My Valentine (4-1) and Free As A Bird (5-2), adding Madame Giry (5-1), Quay (8-1) and Goldstryke Glory (12-1) to the super-exotics mix.

Number of Selections since 2007: 1599

Number of Win-Place-Show Finishers: 485-309-246

Amount Wagered: $3,198 [to win only]

Total Dollar Return on Investment: $3,278.00

Profit to Date: $80.00

Well Named Empire Dreams to Take the Albany


No introductions for today's Albany Stakes. Empire Dreams (3-1) appears the most likely to get all 9 furlongs faster than the rest--except for Captain Serious (9-5), who is faster and more accomplished but suspect at the trip.

Taking Empire Dreams to win at 5-2 or greater, boxing the exacta, and adding Effinex (20-1) to the exotics mix off the barn change to Jimmy Jerkens.

Number of Selections since 2007: 1598

Number of Win-Place-Show Finishers: 485-309-246

Amount Wagered: $3,196 [to win only]

Total Dollar Return on Investment: $3,278.00

Profit to Date: $82.00
