Good day racing fans!! I found myself travelling to the Old Dutch country in search of a buyer this week for a couple old horses I retired, when I heard the call for this race to be covered, so I figured why not let my trip and my costs be covered by BTB and let’s get on the road again!!
TY FOR THE SPECIAL REQUEST JUBALRUTLEDGE
Saturday September 21, 2019
2:30:00 PM EST | Race ID : 2197457
Grade II / Group 2*CPU – Purse : $375,000
Restricted to 3 Year Olds
8.5 Furlongs | ~1700 Meters | One Mile and One Sixteenths
HARD SPUN X UNBRIDLED’S SONG X DANEHILL DANCER
This well bred Unbridled’s Song granddaughter is 3 for her last 3, and 4 for 5 since switching to dirt. She has the distance down, and a strong SP her last outing of 107 should put her close to the board here. She’s on a streak of 3, including a stakes race her last outing. Could be a good bet!
2. LETHAL AND FREE
LETHAL FORCE X SNITZEL X FANTASTIC LIGHT
Another 4/5 filly since changing over to the dirt, this filly has plenty of speed for 1 mile, and looks like she can handle another half furlong here. Her time in last outing suggests she can handle about a 1:41 or so, putting her in line with a tough crowd.
3. SEEKING HER CAUSE
GIANT’S CAUSEWAY X A.P. INDY SEEKING THE GOLD
Beatifully bred 3YO by Giant’s Causeway has a 5 win streak heading in to this race, including a G1, and a G3. She’s looking to add a G2 to her resume here, and she has a 108 SP high heading to post Saturday. Will be a tough contender!!
4. UNCLE NO NO
UNCLE LINO X NONNO’S BOY X MEADOW LAKE
This filly has struggled in her last 6 outings, and a brutal schedule hasn’t helped the cause. She hasn’t won at 8.5 F in her life, and don’t think she can handle the pace set here.
MEDAGLIA D’ORO X UNBRIDLED’S SONG X DISTORTED HUMOR
Well bred Filly is very lucrative looking heading in to this race with a 110 SP her last outing in a G3, running the same times as the G1ers. She should be very close to the board, and she’s going to give some odds here if you back this 1.
6. VOLCANIC GOLD
GIANT’S CAUSEWAY X SEEKING THE GOLD X ALYDAR
This GC filly Stumbled in her last outing trying the 10F, but still shows strong enough at 8.5 F to be a competitor here. her best 8.5 was in 1:41 and earned a 110 SP 2 starts ago. Another possible longshot with a chance at 12-1 payout is very generous here!
7. BIG DATA TEST
TAPIT X DISTORTED HUMOR X STORM CAT
This well bred filly excites me at 8F. at 9, it’s not there, but last outing shows a big 110 SP, and she was still forwardly running. Short odds make me look for better value in this 1.
NYQUIST X STORM CAT X ALYDAR
Well bred Storm Cat Granddaughter looks like she’s having trouble finding her niche as at 8F, she’s forwardly running, Her last outing at 8.5 shows an improvement to 104, but that’s still putting her behind a tough crowd here.
9. BARBARA BITES BACK
MEDAGLIA D’ORO X CAPOTE X FORTY NINER
This well bred Bluegrass Oaks winner will be a tough customer, she looks like she hs stumbled though in her previous 2. will be a good 1 to sit out on this 1, and see how she handles it. A 107 top SP in the Bluegrass Oaks would put her close however.
10. BIG RED CANDY SLEW
CANDY RIDE X SEATTLE SLEW X SECRETARIAT
This beautiful filly has some sweet breeding and is just starting to show some of what she can do with a 103 SP high in 7 races. she could improve hugely here and sweep the lot, and at 14-1, will find a spot on my Superfecta ticket here. Big Payout potential.
UNCLE MO X SCAT DADDY X SUNDAY SILENCE
This Uncle Mp filly is well bred, and showing it all at 8.5 F in her last outing reigning in a 112 SP, and lightly raced only 7 times previous, give this horse the nod as a top contender here despite the 11-1 MLO. Another 1 I will have on my tickets, where is the question.
12. GO DOWN IN FLAMES
BERNARDINI X SEEKING THE GOLD X DANZIG
This Sharply bred Bern Filly looks to tackle it’s 1st Stakes win here, and she isn’t that far off the pace to do it. Her time and SP over 8.5 shows 1:41 and 107, which put her in the mix, if she can run there, it’ll put her at least in the top half of the group.
13. APPROACHING EDEN
NEW APPROACH X MINESHAFT X KINGMAMBO
This filly is a refreshingly bred sharp filly that could surprise in here. A 109 SP in her last outing, along with a 1:41 time over 8.5 puts her amid some tough competition. This field is looking extremely tough to pick from here. if ya got an extra $5…
14. DANZING GIANT
GIANT’S CAUSEWAY X DANZIG X SEATTLE SLEW
This Danzig Granddaughter looks to make Grampa proud once again, already bringing in a G3 and a G2 in her last 2 races, and her times put her right in the mix. another contender this time out in this great field for Saturday.
This will be a great race to watch come Saturday, and I hope you hit something big on your tickets, cause it’s going to pay really well here, just because of the field being so closely knit, that it’s hard to pick even just a horse to beat all others. Good Luck to all the entrants come Saturday.
