No More Excuses for Unbridled Forever


Today's G1 feature is the Coaching CLub American Oaks for 3YO fillies and it's a two-horse affair on paper. Stopchargingmaria (8-5) finished boldly to win the paceless Black-Eyed Susan and was freshened awaiting this, returning to the track of her maiden victory at 2.

But we're prefer Unbridled Forever (9-5) who returns to her desired two turns after losing contact early in the G1 Acorn and rallying wide and strongly for third. Prior to that, she faced Untapable twice; enough said there.

Taking Unbridled Forever to win, no price restrictions, an exacta box with the favorite, and adding Miss Besilu (6-1) and Taketheodds (8-1) to the super-exotics mix.

Stay by me, Stephanie


Today's featured 10th race is G1 Diana Stakes for older fillies and mares going nine furlongs on the turf, and it's a tough, wide open scramble.

We're going to opt for value and take one half of the uncoupled Chad Brown entry, Stephanie’s Kitten (6-1).

She figures to benefit greatly from the one mile Just A Game in which she lost contact with the field in the early going then came rolling but much too late.

'Stephanie' has run her lifetime best on Spa turf at today's trip and with a return to the distance, a somewhat contested pace in front and a switch to Frankie Dettori all augur well.

Taking Stephanie's Kitten to win at 4-1 or greater and key boxing her first and second with Discreet Marq (5-1) and Somali Lemonade (12-1).

Chalk Alert


Not an exciting first stakes of Saratoga 146, the Grade 2 Schuylerville which has attracted a field of five juvenile fillies.

How is one to stop Fashion Alert? You might be able to; I can't.

Not only is this Pletcher-Velazquez team production the fastest on paper, by a wide margin, but her dominating win was scored in Belmont's Astoria Stakes. Not a bad way to start a career.

She has early speed, good position outside in this small field and Johnny can play if off the break any way he chooses.

Taking Fashion Alert to win, no price restrictions, and a cold triple completed by Tulira's Star and Take Charge Brandi (6-1).

Number of Selections since 2007: 1567

Number of Win-Place-Show Finishers: 477-302-242

Amount Wagered: $3,134 [to win only]

Total Dollar Return on Investment: $3,221.50
