It’s In the Stars


"I'll see your Bellamy Road and raise you three Uncle Mo's." At least that's what Todd Pletcher appears to be saying to Steve Asmussen beofre today's G3 Ruthless Stakes at Aqueduct.

One of the Todd fillies, Clipthecouponannie (5-2) has the benefit of a race over the track, beat 11 rivals geared down by almost five lengths at 5-1/2 furlongs vs. state-breds and is getting a six-pound spot.

But Constellation (4-5) has much more experience, owns better spacing, has run faster on the Thoro-Graph and Pricci Energy scales, futs the shape better and is better posted. And Asmussen runners are firing everywhere.

Taking Constellation to win at early line odds or better.

King of the Friday Feature


What happens when two very impressive maiden winners collide in their second lifetime starts? You take the Pletcher runner. But seriously...

Actually, there's not much to separate Zulu (6-5) from Cardio Cowboy (7-2), except maybe a Pennsylvania bred vs. a Kentucky bred and a homebred vs. a $900,000 two year old purchase.

Then there's the faster figures, on anyone's scale, an outside post and a race over the track. The only possible drawback is that Zulu might have run a debut too fast to duplicate; then again he has more rest into this. Sometimes, you just have to give in:

Taking Zulu to win, no price restrictions, would reverse these two in exactas and consider including fast-working price shots Niigon's Edge (20-1) and Decisionsdecisions (15-1) in the super-exotics mix.
