“Off the Charts” Trip Notes and Horses to Watch


Belmont Park


Race #4 – #12 – Irish Filibuster – 7f turf – jockey Luis Saez in the irons for Mike Maker. They were bumped soundly leaving the starting gate and should be followed right back. This was his first effort since February at Fair Grounds, and Maker has a way to get his runners ready to move forward off for runners coming off the shelf.

Race #6 – #6 – Tombelaine – 7f turf – Javier Castellano for Chad Brown and this runner was making a first start since shipping in from Gulfstream. Pinched back at the start and was forced between foes down the backstretch. Add in he was 6 wide around the final turn closing stoutly and you have a runner ready to get his picture taken next out.

Race #7 – #4 – Easy Way Out – 6 1/2f dirt – This 1st time filly with Irad Ortiz in the saddle was knocked around multiple times leaving the gate and had to alter course to the six wide path. Once she found clear sailing, he effort was eye-catching. She will improve off this effort and be a handful next time to the races.


Race #2 – #2- Prudence – 1 mile turf= Corey Lanerie was in the drivers seat this day for the “Rusty” Arnold barn. She split runners gamely and showed great interest. The barn does very well with return runners during the brief meet. The big question is can he wheel her back in the next two weeks or will they turn to a winter campaign ? If she appears right back at Keeneland, bet early and often.

Race #6 – #4 – Leofric –  Chris Landeros had the call for trainer Neil Howard. Shipped in off a Churchill effort in September, and was knocked around a bit leaving the gate. Finished up with a good late kick and the big question is where will he race next ? Should we be looking for a quick return, or a campaign back at Churchill Downs ? Either way, this is a runner who needs a bet.
