I Have No Disdain for Kiaran’s Horse, Honest!


Today's featured G3 Shuvee Handicap looks like the ideal spot for Antipathy (9-5) who was a game, come-again third to divisional leading Close Hatches in the G1 Ogden Phipps when last seen at Belmont.

Dropping two grades, stretching to 9 furlongs as a daughter of A.P. Indy, her controlling speed should allow her to dominate in this spot given a repeat effort, which, of course, is never a given.

Taking Antipathy to win, no price restrictions, and an exactas box with Spa and distance specialist, Flashy American, and adding Unlimited Budget (6-1) to the exotics mix.

Class Will Tell


It's unfortunate when the "best horse" is carrying a heavy package in a prep race but you can't honestly say you're comfortable trying to beat him: That's the case with Belmont winner Tonalist (8-5) in today's Grade 2 Jim Dandy, the quintessential Travers prep.

Even with Christophe Clement admitting that while his colt is very fit, he's left something in the tank for next time. But the problem is that he has all the versatility to handle any pace scenario, he can kick, owns the fastest energy figures, and he's proven at the highest level.

Taking Tonalist to win, no price restrictions, and an exacta box with price shot Legend (12-1) and the newly blinkered Wicked Strong (2-1.

Buona Sera Cugini


The first of two Travers preps this weekend is today's Curlin Stakes for 3YO going 9 furlongs. There's no shortage of graded stakes-tested runners here, including Derby runner-up Commanding Curve but we'll take any value offered on Cousin Stephen.

Chad Brown trainee was looking like a possible classics contender but instead, after a brief freshening, returned at Parx with an extremely game score after being severely tested in the lane. Now he stretches out to his most effective distance, showing good development. The spacing is right and the switch to Johnny certainly doesn't hurt.

Taking Cousin Stephen to win at 4-1 or greater, an exacta box with Commanding Curve, and adding Protonico, Life In Shambles and Charge Now to the super-exotics mix.
