Setting a Benchmark


Today's Belmont feature, the Chelsea Flower for juvenile turf fillies, offers a group that next year may be the equal of the Juvenile Turf Fillies that will run next weekend.

In the meantime, as competitive as this is, still must give the nod to Mr. Brown who has two in here and we're shading Beat the Benchmark (3-1), even if her stablemate is faster on figures.

This filly was tested in WO's G1 Summer Stakes and acquitted herself well, showing toughness and heart despite her inexperience and troubled start and close quarters in the drive. Today, this miss has better spacing into this and an inside draw.

Taking Beat the Benchmark to win at 2-1 or greater and key-boxing exactas with stablemate Create the Dream (7-2), talented Clement filly Noble Ready (6-1) and adding price shot Sensitive (12-1) to the super-exotics mix.


Number of Selections since 2007: 2168

Number of Win and Place Finishes: 657-421

Amount Wagered: $4,336.00 [$2 to win only]

Total Dollar Return on Investment: $4,438.50

Profit to Date: $102.50

We’re Flattered


Today's Belmont feature, the G3 Bold Ruler is at 7 furlongs, which is significant.

That, and the fact Ami's Flatter (5-1) was so wide in the G2 Phoenix at six furlongs as to lose all chance, yet he finished third to one of the strongest Breeders' Cup Sprint contenders, A.P. Indian.

Dropping into a Grade 3 and switching to winning partner Johnny Velazquez are positive developments. So is the outside draw and that Ami's Flatter's next defeat at today's trip will be his first in four career starts. We'll take the specialist.

Taking Ami's Flatter to win at 7-2 or greater, an exacta box with classy three-year-old Economic Model (3-1), and adding Threefiveindia (6-1) and Dannie's Deceiver (20-1) to the super-exotics mix.

Number of Selections since 2007: 2167

Number of Win and Place Finishes: 657-421

Paceless Keeneland Feature: Intriguing Choices


Note that Keeneland's perennial leading owner Ken Ramsey has two entered in today's feature, trained by different trainers, but with Julien Leparoux named on both.

If I were Julien, I'd choose Wayward Kitten. She's drawn well inside, has been trained with purpose for this, has good spacing into this, and with her tactical speed should be in good position throughout in what appears to be a paceless event on paper.

Taking Wayward Kitten to win, no price restrictions, and key-boxing exactas with Crescent Drive and Motivational.


Number of Selections since 2007: 2166

Number of Win and Place Finishes: 657-421

Amount Wagered: $4,332.00 [$2 to win only]
