Jerkens Favorite Looks Wicked Strong in Big A’s Excelsior


Sometimes it's not about the figures, sometimes it's all about class. The last nine times Wicked Strong (1-1) ran in a stakes, seven came at the Grade 1 level and two were G2s.

The move down into a G3, today's added distance, his second start off a layup in which he was beaten a length by one of the country's best milers and, finally, a return to the surface over which he became a burgeoning star, all augur well.

And for a 10 furlong race, there's seems to be enough speed signed on to insure at least a solid pace. We have no choice in this spot.

Taking Wicked Strong to win, no price restrictions, and key-boxing exactas with sharp Jacobson trainee Stormin Monarcho (15-1) and Cousin Stephen (8-1), third off a layoff for Chad Brown, a(profitable 33% scenario. Also, adding fast working Turco Bravo (10-1) and very live North Slope (5-1) to all super-exotics positions.

Rambling and Gambling


Today's featured 8th at the Big A is a preliminary allowances for fillies and mares 3YO & up going a mile on turf and an excellent spot for a recent Tony Dutrow claim to get a quick return on dividends.

After breaking her MWS maiden, Bill Mott dropped her in for 50K, won the pot but lost the filly in a strong finish performance that earned her an excellent Energy Rating. She's had three sharp works subsequently and Kendrick Carmouche ships in with the filly. Tactical speed and the pole seal this deal.

Taking Ramble (3-1) to win at 5-2 or greater, and boxing an exacta with Clement import, Graceful Grit (4-1).

Throwing Deep in Memories of Silver


It takes nerve to bet against Chad Brown in these overnight turf stakes. Ditto Christophe Clement when unveiling the newest Euro ship-in. But that's the plan.

Kawfee Fa Marfa (12-1) could be seriously underrated here. A sharp main track winner at a mile in her season's debut at Parx, she earned a competitive Pricci Energy Rating in her lone start sprinting on turf at 2.

She beat more than half her 12 rivals after breaking from a wide slip going 5-1/2 furlongs, losing by less than 5 lengths. She wants today's added distance.

Taking Kawfee Fa Marfa to win at 8-1 or greater and key-boxing her in exactas with Consumer Credit (3-5) and Colour Party (5-1).
