Clement Import Looks Stellar


Let's go up north to the Big A, which is what Christophe Clement did with recent import Stellar Path, entered in today's featured Plenty of Grace Stakes.

We have learned it is folly to bet against CC's runners making their first U.S. starts, and this 4YO races fresh, which proved her best game in Europe.

First time Lasix, she can handle any ground and gets an inside draw in a small field. It's her, and Luis Saez's, race to lose.

Taking Stellar Path to win, no price restrictions, and going for value in a cold exacta with Principessa Ava, who had difficult set-ups in both recent graded starts at Tampa Bay.


Number of Selections since 2008: 1725

Number of Win and Place Finishes: 520-331

Amount Wagered: $3,450 [to win only]

Total Dollar Return on Investment: $3,561.90

Profit to Date: $111.90

An Encounter of the Fleet Kind in Lexington


The first of two co-features at Keeneland today is a gate full of turf sprinting females going 5-1/2 furlongs with a number of fillies making their season's debuts. Two of them are among the first two favorites; the one we prefer, however, will offer value.

Fleet Encounter (8-1) makes her first start of the year off a series of sharp works at Hawthorne and hails from a barn, Mark Cristel's, whose shippers often outrun their odds. Her best quality, however, is her record at the trip, owning a (10) 6-3-0 slate. Further, she has a versatile style, allowing Corey Lanerie to play it off the break.

Taking Fleet Encounter to win at 5-1 or greater and key-boxing exactas with the very speedy Adventure Love (5-2) and uber sharp Sugar Sweet (4-1).

Rescheduled Keeneland Grade 3 Yields Same Opinion


In determining who gets the lion's share of today's Keeneland feature, redrawn post positions altered everything but the conclusion; proven improvement at 3 and recency over classier 2 year old form and inactivity.

It's still A Lot (5-2), who has developed in a big way in SoFla this winter for Bill Mott, over Luck of the Kitten (9-5), the game runner-up in the Breeders' Cup Juvenile Turf when last seen.

While the speedy 'Kitten' now has the benefit of the pole, the smaller field likely will be an aid to the tactical A Lot, giving Johnny V. lots of options from the outside, assuming a clean break.

Taking A Lot to win at 5-2 or greater, an exacta box with Luck of the Kitten, and adding underrated price shot Majestico (8-1) to the super-exotics mix.
