Holding the Line


Very competitive Troy Stakes for a non-graded event but for $250K, why not?

We're taking a 4YO gelding that is beginning to develop nicely now, likes the Spa turf and makes mini-turn-back to his optimal distance. And Johnny takes the re-ride.

So, we're taking Holding Gold (9-2) to win at 7-2 or greater and keying him first and second in trifectas with two fast favorites--Pure Sensation (9-5) and Green Mask (8-5)--and Long On Value (5-1), not himself at Ascot and was a winner at the trip here last year.

Going to Test the Waters at Saratoga


The Whitney isn't the only Grade 1 that Team Asmussen/Geroux are going after this afternoon.

The G1 Test is an extremely competitive event and while it's easy to make cases for no less that six horses, the one that intrigues most is Vertical Oak (8-1).

She may turn out to be the speed of the speed, she owns a win at Saratoga and her lifetime best effort came over a wet track, assumed to be the case later today.

Also, she is benefiting from a weight switch with her recent conqueror and will be in this one throughout.

Taking Vertical Oak to win at 6-1 or greater, and key-boxing exactas with Your Love (6-1) and American Gal (5-2).

Rain, Rain Stay Away


Hope the rain keeps up as today's G2 Hall of Fame for 3YO turf runners is a beauty and hopefully we get to see the best of Yoshida (7-2) today.

Mott trainee had very little chance after Oscar Performance got away with a half-mile in 49 2/5 over a firm course and had enough to sprint her final quarter in 23 in the G1 Belmont Derby. Under the circumstances, Yoshida remained one paced.

With that conditioning, the turn-back suits, and while there isn't a ton of pace signed on, it figures to be much livelier than the longer Belmont event.

Taking Yoshida to win at 5-2 or greater and an exacta box with Big Handsome (3-1)
