CONNEMARA: Trainer Todd Pletcher brought this 2yo colt in from Turfway Park along with some of his BC contenders, this guy was put in a first level allowance race and he came from last to first running them down with absolutely no pace in the race, run over to Wynn and make a Kentucky Derby future bet on this guy.
STOMP DANCE: Was last seen in September of ‘08 running at Fairplex, he really never got going as he broke slow and was checked on the turn, look for a big run at a big price next time out at Hollywood, long shot special.
LIFE IS SWEET: This was one of Ralph Siraco’s main plays in our BC seminar as she had been playing second fiddle to her stablemate Zenyatta, after watching her crush this group of girls in the Ladies’ Classic it was obvious why trainer Shirreffs ran Big Zen in the main event. She will now become the color barrier for the barn with Big Zen heading out to make little Zen’s.
ZENSATIOINAL: Really lost the BC sprint at the break when jockey Espinoza did not get him out of the gate, he then got him in trouble when boxed in down on the rail, it was just a forgivable trip on a pro ride course that was favoring closers, toss this race.
RED SUN: Was coming off a layoff and going to the grass, he got bet like the race had already been run and he ran to the money with a very easy win for trainer Carla Gaines who looks to have a real good grass sprinter, he will love the 6 furlong Hollywood course. $$$$$
ALIVE FOR SIX: Carla Gaines first time starter exits the same race as Red Sun, he was far back but put in a big late run, he will be very hard to deny next time out.
MAMA ROSA: Put in a big late run but was just a tad late when one of five heads on the wire in this 6½ furlong down hill sprint. Look for trainer Abrams to bring this girl back quick at Hollywood at a longer distance.
GOLDEN GATE FIELDS
FORM A POSSE: Was exiting our HTW list and won like a good thing by four lengths despite lacking room and checking off heels, once clear he just drew away and won for fun showing his likeness for the surface. This guy will most likely show up in a claim proof starter allowance race in the near future. $$$$$
JAMAICA BOUND: Was in from Emerald Downs looking for grass but his race was moved off the green and put on the main, he still ran a bang up second, look for him to return in a grass race and get a trip to the winner’s circle.
SEVEN TORRENTS: Was just another Emerald Downs shipper that ran big time and this guy paid $78.20, he will come back and run another big race and the price will be a good one once again.
