If the late President Reagan were a handicapper, he would have this to say to NYRA racing secretary P.J. Campo: Well, there you go again!

Yes, another turf sprint feature, but this time at 7 furlongs. At least were stretching out, anyway.

Todays eighth in New York is for fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up, for non-winners of one other than maiden or claiming.

We really cant see anything interesting beyond two fillies in the field of 10 that includes an entry: Emmy Carly (2-1) and Lorelei Legend (8-1).

Emmy Carly figures to be higher odds at post time, given her return from a long layoff. Shes the fastest filly in the group on performance figures and likely has upside potential here given her added maturity at 4. That figure came on Belmont turf, she returns for Bill Mott currently in the midst of a Hall of Fame season and excellent off a lengthy respite. Interesting that he reaches out for Channing Hill, who doesnt ride for this barn normally, and returns off a series of steady works.

Meanwhile, Lorelei Legend will appreciate the return to 7 furlongs, distance of her only--and fastest--victory. Making her second start off a freshening, she turns back for Bobby Frankel, a profitable angle for this Hall of Famer, taps Johnny Velazquez, a 30 percent team when hooking up, and comes from a Saratoga route that might turn out to be a key race with one winner from two subsequent starters. Not as fast as some of her rivals here, that could change since she appears to be a late developing three-year-old.

Taking Emmy Carly to win at 2-1 or greater and an exacta box with Lorelei Legend.
