You Expected Something Else?

Today’s Spa feature is the G1 Personal Ensign. Like a horse called Rachel Alexandra. I expect her to bring the fight to Life At Ten and not be dictated, too.

Taking the reigning Horse of the Year to win, no price restrictions, and a one-way exacta with Todd’s filly.

Running Totals: (717) 235-147-97 Total Dollar Return: $1,617.10 [win selections only]

Smooth Sailing for Stormy

The temptation was pretty strong to go against Get Stormy (9-5) in today’s G2 Bernard Baruch. After all, the Fourstardave winner was being asked to do something he’s never done before, run nine furlongs, as the favorite. And the competition is much too smart to let him get away soft.

But who’s going to be the sacrificial speed? The only one who qualifies on paper, National Kid, a front running winner at Monmouth last out, doesn’t class up in graded company. Get Stormy, who’s 3-for-4 on this course, is also a multiple graded winner and is holding form via a recent 5-furlong work around the dogs in :59 3/5. Add Javier Castellano to the mix and he is very difficult to beat here.

Taking Get Stormy at 7-5 or greater and boxing him in the exacta with Whatsthescript (5-1), a troubled fourth behind the choice in the Fourstardave.
