Confident Pletcher Sets Sights on Harlans Holiday


Don't know about you but we think Todd Pletcher is most dangerous when he places his runners with confidence, winning more than his share of graded stakes with horses eligible for secondary allowance conditions. He's doing just that in today's Harlans Holiday at Gulfstream Park.

Liam's Map (7-2) simply exploded on the scene this fall in New York with two visually impressive daylight scores [see replays], earning ascending and excellent Energy Ratings. His recent bullet work was the fastest of the week at Palm Bay Downs,

Yes, he's making his two-turn debut against graded runners, but the dynamics of this trip at GP will flatter his style.

Taking Liam's Map to win at 2-1 or greater, and key boxing exactas with the classy Pants On Fire (2-1) and the much improved Valid (3-1).

Number of Selections since 2007: 1658

Number of Win and Place Finishes: 498-323

Amount Wagered: $3,316 [to win only]

Total Dollar Return on Investment: $3,451.00

Profit to Date: $135.00

Picking a Daisy


We'll need some help from the goddess of the AE's, but if Daisy a Day gets in, we're there.

Actually, trainer Ralph Nicks has a filly in the body of the race, the speedy Catching Fireflies breaking from the pole. But that's just it: There's plenty of lick in this 5F turfer and if her mate can get in, expect her to use her late kick to best advantage given today's dynamic.

Nicks is profitable with all his turf runners and in making her third start off a layup, 'Daisy' is turning back to her winning distance, also one in which she earned an excellent Energy Rating. The price should be more than adequate.

Taking Daisy a Daisy to win at 6-1 or greater and key-boxing exactas with turf-sprint specialist Thisdanseistaken, and Raro, nicely drawn in mid-pack with Paco and the versatility to work out a trip here.

Number of Selections since 2007: 1655

Number of Win and Place Finishes: 498-323

Amount Wagered: $3,310 [to win only]

Shhh!


It appears that Gustavo Delgado stepped in and claimed Quiet Kitten at just the right moment--the day she would break her maiden at the $25K level by 5.

In fact, she never has taken a backward step on our Energy Ratings in her four lifetime grass runs, and she has improved markedly with added distance.

Bringing her back for $35,000 is the proper spot; loses Zayas but picks up Johnny.
