Making Beautiful Music in New Orleans

The Claiming Crown series has taken a hit in recent years but someof the races still remain interesting. Such as the big featureat Fair Grounds today, the Claiming Crown Jewel.

Michael Maker has this race surrounded and Harmonizer (3-1) has done his best racing at today's trip and over this strip; he fits race shape nicely and is well drawn inside. He had sharp breeze for this, exits a key race (two next-out winners) and is 3-for-5 over this ground.

Taking Harmonizer to win at 5-2 or greater and boxing him in the exacta with his uncoupled mate, Almutasib (8-5).

She’ll Run Good, That’s a Promise

Today’s Aqueduct feature is a secondary allowances for fillies and mares sprinting six furlongs. The fastest filly by definition, Promise Me A Cat (5-2), one that has been tested in stakes company and is from a barn that’s an otherworldly 34% with returnees of 90 days or longer is going to be a very tough out.

Add to that the fact the filly seems to fit the race dynamics perfectly with a projected clear run at the early leaders from her outside slip, she’s working well and David Cohen, who does a lot of winning for David Jacobson, takes the call here.

Compelled to take Promise Me A Cat, no price restrictions, and keying her first and second in multiple exotics with Honest Gold (8-1), Flying Train (6-1) and Taconic Victory (5-1).
