3-10. Winners in the 5th [$22.60], 6th [$4.30], and 7th [$3.20]. Cold P3 in that R5-7 sequence [$153.50/$2]. And a homerun of a cold exacta in the 5th [$340.00]. In the 7th it was our top pick over third and second selections for the exacta [$18.80] and tri [$42.20].
15,837 attended and the forecasters were right on the money with their prediction of a cloudy morning giving way to a nice afternoon. Sunny and hot - but the humidity was way, way down from the opeing few days.
"Rivalry Day"... Come dressed in Yankees or BoSox attire and get $2 off admission.
Dahlgren Chapel... A winner last time seen in this condition.
Game Token...5-1 on the morning line but Beyers would seem to indicate he's more likely than that.
Jackson N Humboldt...Has yet to miss the exacta.
Heather's Feather...Pletcher. A win-early sire. Enough in a race where nothing pops off the page.
Tiara...Sire still unproven but trainer cna have them ready.
Singlet...Worked 22.2 before 2YO sale.
Heart of Destiny.
Bubble Gum...Solid on synthetics. Will be tough if she likes the dirt.
Sweet N Sour Nina...Competitive in small stakes in last two.
Arena Elvira...Moves into stakes company but fits with this bunch.
Always in My Heart.
Sisterhood...Full-sib Cozy's Kitten won his debut. This one had trouble last time - improvement not out of the question.
Coral Glade...More Pletcher with some win-early breeding.
Fontanne...Distorted Humor on top and the dam has produced at least two first-out winners.
Grace Alley...See if the mid-Atlantic shipper from Sheppard angle can work for us here.
St Lucy...Looks to have figured it out.
Vee...Drops in for a tag.
Cool Operator...Perhaps a class edge on these.
Hook and Lateral...Crafty connections.
Tom's Heritage...Suspect he's better than the debut effort showed.
Simmard...Legit graded stakes competitor should fit well here.
Kindergarten Kid...Might be interesting if he tries the same front-running tactics as last time.
Dark Cove...Back on turf after a G1 try at HOL.
Seattle Mission...`Capable on best - but we're not guaranteed to get it.
Alstom...Another that is kind of in-and-out, but capable.
Gamblin Fever...Should be rolling late.
Skorton...Experience does count and this one showed good speed going slightly longer last time.
Adriatic Spirit...Nice work on 7/29.
Adirondack Dancer...Linda Rice trainee also worked well in prep for this.
