AGOS Horses to Watch & Trip Notes – 10/4/18

AGOS Visitor get complimentary Horses to Watch and Trip Notes.

BELMONT PARK

KEPT TRUE (Race 9 @BEL 10/4/18) – First time starter by Yes It’s True was full of run and just waiting for run when she took over in mid-stretch and scored an easier-than-it-looks victory.  She’s out of a stakes placed mare and is bred to be a nice sprinter.

STRIVE FOR A CURE (Race 5 @BEL 9/19/18) – This was quite the put over by top MidAtlantic trainer Dale Capuano, who brought this 2yo son of Goldencents up from Laurel to upset a pretty good maiden field at odds of 10-1.  Ridden by bug boy Weston Hamilton, he made a long sustained run on the inside to catch the favorite in mid stretch and then outduel that one to the wire.

SUNNY RIDGE  (race 8 @BEL, 9/22/18) – Holy Bull gelding made a wide sweeping run against the early speed bias and finished a game 2nd to the logical, gate to wire winner. Jason Servis runner is very honest.

SARATOGA

OPRY (Race 9 @SAR 8/29/18) – This winner of the featured With Anticipation Stakes unleashed an eye-catching late run to get up and draw off at the wire. Son of Declaration Of War, who is by War Front, just missed in debut which was taken off the turf. That race was won by Cairo Cat.  2nd stakes winner out of that maiden affair on Aug. 11th.
