SHUG FILLY HAS BIG FUTURE

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.

    The old one-two, buckle my shoe, heh JP! It won’t be bombs away today for 1-Enola Gay, as my fellow railbirds will know that she will likely return to base unscathed, and the price will be short. In this politically-correct, insane world we live in, I’m hoping the censors don’t come and take me away for using the word “Gay” in my commentary; who would feed my cat? 4th Race is a quinella (why do they continue to only have quinellas in the 2nd and 4th. It is such a great tool for persons who play this game on a daily basis), and it looks to me that 2-Princesa Caroline is the only threat. Caveat Emptor. Whatever you do, be gay today (happy). And don’t be niggardly with your wagers (frugal or stingy); send it in.

  2. T, your number syncs-up with most, so no surprises there. But for me it was that turn of foot. Maybe the added distance will dull that kick but Shug gave her time since the debut and she certainly has enough pedigree. Don’t know if race will remain on given the weather or how she will handle a rain-softened course. We shall see…
