5-1 Would Be Lovely


Today’s Grade 1 Alabama is an interesting renewal in which Curalina (7-5) and I’m A Chatterbox (5-2) have some unfinished business remaining from the recent Coaching Club American Oaks.

But we’re going in a different direction. Lovely Maria (5-1) was the division’s leader as a dual Grade 1 winner of the Ashland and Kentucky Oaks but stubbed her toe on a hot day in the Delaware Valley last out.

But that Grade 3 was an intended prep anyway and she comes into this fresh with a strong 10-furlong pedigree on the dam’s side. She can kick from close range and should get that setup here.

Taking Lovely Maria to win at 5-2 or greater, an exacta box with Curalina, and adding Include Betty (8-1) and Embellish the Lace (10-1) to the super-exotics mix.

Trying To Be Discreet


Today’s Schenectady is interesting in that it pits two impressive debut winners over the local course making their stakes debuts.

But it would be indiscreet to try to beat Chris Clement’s filly. Too Discreet is kin to turf royalty and she showed as much when by winning her debut handily despite a troubled start.

The win over the course, her speed, pole position and a sharp blowout give her the edge over Don’t Be So Salty (4-1) who, after getting clear in midstretch, closed with a rush to win under the same conditions for owner/trainer Adam Rice.

She Ain’t No Zippy Chippy


Highly competitive Union Avenue Stakes and unwilling to take 2-1 ML fave coming off January layup beneath 124 pounds.

Instead, taking sharp 3-year-old Tricky Zippy (6-1) who is improving rapidly and gets in with 114 meeting elders. Her style and post fit conditions nicely here, she makes first start for Jimmy Jerkens and Johnny given a return call.

Taking Tricky Zippy to win at 4-1 or greater and key-boxing exactas with Willet (2-1) and Sister Margaret (5-1).
