The Conscience of Thoroughbred Racing


When faced with a choice of Chad Brown trainees within the same race, it’s often wise to look at the less fancied first. We will follow our own counsel on this.

There are no named feature races on Wednesday’s Belmont card so a first level allowances on turf will have to do. The Brown we fancy is a cleverly named Nay Lady Nay (7-2).

If you have time to check out the replay of AUG 2 at Monmouth Park, do so, or you can take our word that despite breaking from post 9 of 9 and a short run into the first turn, Paco Lopez and the filly were in it from the start.

On her own, she swept to the lead easily on the far turn and drew off under only the mildest encouragement. There was no strong gallop-out then she never really had to overexert herself.

Taking Nay Lady Lady, coming from a fast race that produced four next-out winners from five starters, to win–2-1 is probably fair–and key-boxing exactas with course-loving Xanthique (9-2) and the returning impressive maiden breaker, *Sorrentina Lemon (6-1).

*This represents a change from original post from about one hour ago: Using the Brown favorite, Fierce Scarlett (4-5), only defensively as a super-exotics inclusion.
