Speed Kills


There's no speed like lone speed and Questing (3-1) is that filly, going for the same connections that won last year's renewal, Godolphin Racing.

Her last performance figure was off that charts and towers over the field. In fact, she is a virtually certainty to regress but the race dynamics should compensate. No one will take her on early, believing she lacks the class, and that should enable her to get it done in wire fashion.

Taking Questing to win at no lower than 5-2, and an exacta box with In Lingerie, a member of the Pletcher-trained uncoupled entry; explosive forward move expected.

Yes, It’s Two, Two Tips in One


If Jackson Bend (7-5) doesn't pick up where he left off in Saratoga last year, I'm at a loss as to which horse will win the first of 35 graded stakes, the G3 James Marvin. Dominant performance figures, tactical speed an outside draw at 7 furlongs and a killer workline makes him a tough out. Taking Jackson Bend to win, no price restrictions, and will try to get Pacific Ocean (5-1) and Golddigger's Boy in the number.

The G3 Schuylverville is more open than it appears. Four of the seven fillies have an excellent chance. We're opting for the very quick, fast working Sweet Shirley Mae (7-2), a potential trip sitter from the pole with Ramon. The price should be fair; 3-1 or greater. The competition, in preferred order, is Baby J (5-2), Can't Explain (5-1) and Fully Living (4-1).

Tomorrow Is Only a Day Away


Thursday, July 19, 2012

Apologies, working on a blog piece and the first two days of racing from Saratoga. The Feature Race Analysis returns tomorrow with two...two picks in one. It's a double feature; remember them?

Seriously,it's the G3 James Marvin and G3 Schuylerville for Friday. Besides, has anyone seen today's card from Del Mar?

And they would like to compare it wth Saratoga?

Today's feature, there, incidentally, is a 5-furlong turf sprint with a field of 5. We've got plenty of those kind in upstate New York--with much bigger fields.
