Horses to Watch for AGameofSkill.com visitors

Here are some runners you can keep watch to start building your Belmont Stakes bankroll.

Belmont

Don Camillo (5/8/16 – Race #7 – #3 – 1 1/16 on the inner turf) – Javier Castellano was aboard and he came out bumping like a pinball when they sprung the gate latch. Once settled, Castellano started making a solid move only to run completely out of gas. – Maybe a cleaner trip with a class drop may be just what the doctor ordered.

Irish Actor (5/18/16 – Race #4 – #8 – 6f turf) – Cornelio Velasquez in the irons for Linda Rice, and this daughter of Patriot Act was making her first start in 7 months. She was dead last and came weaving through traffic for a solid fourth place effort over the quick turf. Give her a little more ground or a cleaner trip and it could be just what the doctor ordered.

Promotional (5/18/16 – Race #8 – #5 – 1 1/4 turf)-  rider Junior Alvarado had the call for the “mad genius” Thom Proctor. She had the best of trips and came flying like a down hill train. Once she arrived at the 1/8th pole, she was forced to take up sharply taking away all momentum.

 

Churchill

Sugar Kate (5/21/16 – Race #5 – #7 – 1 1/16 on the main)- Channing Hill aboard for trainer Tim Glyshaw, and his mare was in tight and pinballed around at the start. Once she settled out and regained her momentum, she was forced to angle out and forced to steady once again. – Keep her in the clear and Team Glyshaw gets their picture taken.

Blast (5/6/16 – Race #2 – #2 – 6 1/2f) – Corey Lanerie in the irons for Eddie Keannelly and this ultra-tough runner was scooting right up the inside rail and was shut off. The rider did an excellent job keeping him rolling, but shut-off still the same. There was an objection into the race and this horse-for-the-course filly was a bridesmaid after the decision was made. Next up she’ll probably take a new path right to the winner’s circle.

Lewis Bay (5/6/16 – Race #11 – #3 – 1 1/8) – Irad Ortiz in town to ride for Chad Brown, and this gal looked like a sure fire winner staying on the rail waiting a glimpse of daylight. I would have doubled down on her if possible by looks alone, but when she had her seem. She just faded down the lane. I don’t know if she couldn’t match Cathryn Sophia, or it was just a bad day. Either way, she’ll get my bankroll play next out.

Harmonize (5/6/16 – Race#10 – #1 – 1 1/16 on the turf) – On the Kentucky Oaks undercard, Junior Alvarado was up for Bill Mott, and she stumbled badly at the start on this day. She made a nice four wide move to get minor awards, but the gate break took quite a bit of momentum away. – Look for a huge turf effort next time to the races.

 

Indiana Grand

Dynamite Stick (5/18/16 – Race #5 – #7 – 5f turf) –  Marcelino Pedroza  for Mike Lauer, and his mount tracked in the 2nd flight and had to take off heels at the top of the lane. He picked it up smartly and came rolling late to lose by a dirty nose at the wire.

 

Santa Anita

Misdeed (5/8/16 – Race #8 – #7 -1 1/16) – Santiago Gonzalez was aboard, and his runner saw every inch of the track on this day. – He was three deep from the start, five wide on the second turn, and three wide down the lane. – Take away the extra 1/4 mile, and you will see a different runner.
