Let’s Have a Thanksgiving Party


Of the two Big A Features, we'll take a look at the larger field with a chance to secure better value. Alas, we shall see.

Chad Brow is efforting to surround another turf stakes with his fillies, surrounding today's Winter Memories with an uncoupled triad.

Our interest is in Party Boat (7-2), an unlucky narrow loser of her Belmont finale but now returns to the Big A lawn, over which she's 1-for-1 and at a trip, where she's a worthy (4) 2-1-0 in her career.

Taking Party Boat to win at 3-1 or greater and key-boxing her in trifectas with Brown runners Thais (4-1), Taperge (5-1) and Rymska (3-1), and adding uncoupled Motion, Dancing Breeze (15-1), as a superfecta price shot.

Happy Thanksgiving one and all!

Focus on Today’s Big A Feature


Today's Big A feature is a first level allowances going 1-3/16 miles on the turf.

Shahroze (2-1), an impressive maiden breaker for Motion as first-time U.S. runner, is a deserving fave who also happens to be a first-Lasix runner here. And while Astounding (5-1), from the white hot Jason Servis, has the benefit of a recent win over the course, it is another we prefer.

Focus Group (7-2) had very little chance coming from last when pace-comprised in Belmont finale but finished strongly too late for third. Second time in the hands of Jose Ortiz and at a shorter trip, the race shape should favor his style here.

Taking Focus Group to win at 5-2 or greater and key-boxing exactas with his rivals here.

SURPRISE


There are only six horses in today's Stallion Series sprint for males going 7 furlongs where there appear to be more questions than answers; can make a case for almost anyone.

We'll let the weatherman, who is handicapping for rain, push us on to Sudden Surprise (5-1). But there are other reasons. He improved off the Cox claim, is 2-for-2 in Queens, 3-for-5 in the wet, and reunites with Luis Saez, the winning partner two back.

Taking Sudden Surprise to win at 3-1 or greater and an exacta box with LAY-2 returnee, Gold for the King (2-1), with Rosario on the re-ride.
