RACE 10 G3 GALLORETTE STAKES F & M 3 & UP 1-1/16 MILES TURF
1-MONSTER SLEEPING (15-1) has worthy turf slate (10) 4-3-2 but winless in two starts at the trip, makes course debut and owns slow figures. Of six sibs to win, she’s the lone grass winner.
2-PEACE PRIZE (30-1) raced greenly in U.S. debut but rallied gamely for place and was claimed into barn that doe OK with new acquisitions given a limited sample. Rider Kali 2-for-9 for this barn but this is entirely different animal for this 4YO.
3-TIGER RIDE (7-2) has won half of her six turf starts, including two at this trip, has competitive Pricci Energy Ratings with this group and makes third start off the layup for Motion, profitable with graded stakes runners, and barn regular Prado in the boot.
4-CAMILLIE CLAUDEL (20-1) of dams two offspring to win, none have come on turf. Best guess for recent secondary allowances winner is that she’s looking for race to shift to wet main track.
5-OL’ FASHION GAL (6-1) looks like bargain purchase for $60K is a nicely developing 4YO winner of Grade 3s in both Canada and U.S. Stable rider Leparoux aloft but this class jump looks formidable here. Interesting prospect.
6-NISHARONA (12-1) is 5YO daughter of mare that has produced four turf victors from as many winners to race including her. Returns with bounce-rebound pattern, she handles any type of ground but this is ambitious win spot for turf barn yet to win a graded stakes.
7-FLYING TIPAT (15-1) boasts ordinary 2-for-15 turf slate at lower levels and has run to run a competitive figure. Romans’ charges know for surprises and is reaching for home boy Lanerie here.
8-JOSDESAIMEAUX (4-1) is a lightly raced 4YO with gaps in her running lines but has repeatedly brought her ‘A’ game recently. Owns competitive recent PERs and is second off a layoff for Casse/Lezcano team that’s enjoying profitable 2016.
9-MISS MONEY (9-2) is a nicely developing 4YO that was highly competitive in overnight stakes at Fair Grounds this winter. Returns fresh with steady works for Flint barn, whose horses often outrun their odds. Note switch to Castellano.
10-GINGER N RYE (12-1)placed gamely in a Laurel overnighter when making slowly run 4YO debut. Figures to benefit for crafty turf connections (limited sample) and owns promising turf slate (4) 2-2-0 with a win at this trip.
11-VIELSALM (30-1) the closest she’s come to this level of competition is a narrow defeat vs. Maryland-breds last year as 5YO. Beaten 3-1/2 lengths in tough-trip sprint return from layup Apr. 24 but draw does her no favors.
12-HEATH (6-1) makes second start off the layup for Mott (21%) in which she handled 11 rivals off the bench and has been very competitive in overnight turf stakes. Owns versatile style beneath versatile Geroux with worthy 3-for-8 turf slate, including two wins at the trip.

RACE 7: Grade 2 RUFFIAN STAKES F & M 4 & UP 1 MILE
finished one-paced after saving ground in 4YO debut, the G3 Distaff four weeks ago. Benefits, is 2-for-3 at Belmont but draws unenviable pole slot and is 0-for-2 at distance. Very classy but with mixed signals.
2-Include Betty (5-1)
won the G1 Mother Goose over this ground at 3 and is 2-for-2 at the trip. Hard-tryer should benefit from season’s debut Mar. 5 but speed figures lacking here.
3-Spelling Again (12-1)
circling back to excellent Pricci Energy Rating under exact dynamics at CD three back. Cox 27% profitable going sprint to route after improving in Cox barn. Excellent value at early line odds.
4-Calamity Kate (8-1)
earned career best figure winning Delaware Oaks last year and broke maiden at this trip, on this course at 3. Won off similar layoff last year and picks up Johnny. Fair early line quote.
5-Welcome Aboard (30-1)
is 6-for-17 vs. weaker on turf and 2-for-9 on dirt. Reed 22% with his shippers but this is extremely ambitious.
owns fastest PER, handles any footing and is (7) 4-3-0 lifetime including (3) 2-1-0 slate at Belmont and is 2-for-2 at trip. Well posted and dynamics suited with regular partner, aggressive Jose Ortiz. Deserving favorite; strongest on Thoro-Graph scale
