Tomorrow’s turf feature at Belmont Park, the Chelsey Flower at one mile on the Widener Course is a battle between two fillies who broke their maidens impressively on debut.
Princesa Caroline (2-1) is a worthy favorite given that she chased the pace losing ground throughout winning it with a strong turn of foot at headstretch. She reached even terms with the leader at midstretch then drew off late with good extension.
We’re going with impressive 6-1/2 furlong sprint winner at Kentucky Downs, Enola Gay (4-1), ridden confidently, patiently, allowed to settle leaving headstretch then showed a devastating turn of foot when turned loose. Pedigree, connections, added ground and good spacing are reasons to expect minor upset.
Taking Enola Gay to win at 3-1 or greater, an exacta box with Princesa, and adding impressive, newly blinkered, state-bred maiden winner Astoria Kitten (12-1) and import Bredenbury (12-1), making U.S. debut with first Lasix and Rosario.
YESTERDAY: Prince Lucky, poorly ridden, chased the pace while wide throughout, not the road to glory over Big Sandy. But it would not have mattered. Maximum Security, pressured throughout, drew off late in an awesome display of class.
