Paul Quigley's US Racing Preview
30 Jul 2014

There's another tip top evening of racing on Attheraces on Wednesday. It always is when The Saratoga meet is on. I have previewed eight races although I stayed clear of race one. It is a hurdle race which is not my forte when it comes to American racing. Many of you will know some of the horses and horseman from their time on this side of The Atlantic.

The race I am looking forward to is the stakes feature at 9.42pm. The Elite Racing owned Stars Above Me makes her US debut for Graham Motion. The former Roger Charlton trained filly doesn't look out of place against the home opposition. She may be a decent price too.

PAUL'S ANALYSIS FOR  Saratoga races 2 to 9 on
Wednesday 30 July 2014


Saratoga Race 2 (6.00pm)
Maiden Claiming $40,000 - New York bred fillies and mares - 3 year olds and upwards - 1 1/8 Miles - Dirt

Kelly's Prize (2) has slightly better form on turf but she looks a contender on her two starts on dirt. In her only route, she ran a distant third in a maiden special weight in May. Her comeback can be ignored as she blew the start and was never competitive. She runs in a maiden claimer for the first time today.

Kelly's Prize isn't the only maiden special weight dropper. There's a host of them in here. Miz Sweet (1) and On A Snowy Evening (3) may improve for the stretch out in distance. Confessa (4) shaped well on turf on her debut in April. So did Stephanie's Secret (7) last year. Her trainer couldn't be going any better. Similarly Truericepudding (9), who goes for an in form barn.

Brandini (5) was a well beaten second when dropped down to a maiden claimer in June. She has come close in maiden special weights before. She's a player in an open event along with Bella Fachi (6). Her first run routing and on dirt produced a close up second in an open maiden claimer at Belmont.

PAUL'S SELECTION
Kelly's Prize (2)

EXOTIC BETS
Combination Exacta (6 bets): Kelly's Prize (2), Confessa (4) and Brandini (5)

Saratoga Race 3 (6.31pm)
Allowance - New York bred fillies and mares - 3 year olds and upwards - 6 Furlongs - Dirt

Willet (6) made a highly encouraging 2014 return at the start of the month. She ran multiple stakes winner La Verdad close in a New York bred stake. A break of almost four weeks may prevent her from regressing off that big run. She figures to get a good trip off the speedy pair of Atlantic's Smile (3) and Here's Zealicious.

Galiana (4) was a good filly last year but she's upped her game this summer. She's won two stakes at Delaware in open company. Last time, she beat Winning Image who has won countless stakes. There is a possibility she saves her best for Delaware but she did win two races at Saratoga earlier in her career.

Risky Rachel (2) came back after 15 months away to win back to back stakes at Tampa. She's not sparkled in three runs since shipping north including when well behind Willet last time. She returns to a track she's excelled on in the past and that may bring her back to life.

PAUL'S SELECTION
Willet (6)

Saratoga Race 4 (7.02pm)
Claiming $25,000 - 3 year old fillies - 7 Furlongs - Dirt

Rock Me Mama (3) won first time off the claim in February. She's not been disgraced in a trio of much better events than this one. The drop from an allowance event to a $25,000 claimer is how top outfits play the game. As she has form at six furlongs and a mile, this in between distance should suit her fine.

Dash To The Flash (5) was claimed off a two length victory in a $20,000 claimer at Churchill in June. She may be a nice claim as her previous connections may have been taking an edge. Although running for a lesser trainer, she may hold her form and be very competitive here.

Da Wildcat Girl (4) followed a claiming victory over one time winners at Belmont with a solid third in a claimer at Delaware. She's at least an exacta possibility and maybe a contender at a price for the win. So too is Chase My Tail (2) although her trainer Rudy Rodriguez could be in better form. Last time over this distance at Belmont, she easily beat From Tiz Moment On (1) and Cajun Wedding (6). On the face it the latter's chance look bleak here. A recent claim by Mike Maker and running in headgear on may be enough for price players.

Saratoga Race 5 (7.34pm)
Maiden Special Weight - New York bred 2 year old fillies - 5 Furlongs - Dirt

Only one filly in the main field of eight has had a run so this maiden is tricky. Yourcreditisgood (3) is that gal. She debuted at Belmont at the start of the month and ran a distant third. She was wide and raced in contention until deep stretch. Her experience could be crucial and she may be a lot fitter second time out.

Jessica's Ride (7) seemed to have prepped very nicely at Fair Hill for a capable trainer with debutantes. The fact that she was sent to Saratoga to get a feel of the track may be a hint she's live at first asking. That may be the case with First Charmer (8). Her trainer Michael Dilger has made a decent start to his career since he left his role as an assistant to Todd Pletcher. He shows a big level stakes profit with newcomers.

Tony Dutrow has a pair entered. Oohlala (6) is a nicely bred newcomer. Maybe more interesting is second time starter Zo Zo (9). She looked green and wasn't persevered with late when behind Yourcreditisgood on debut. Second time at the races and blinkers on make her a contender if she draws into this race.

Nonna Jo (2) has worked nicely for her debut and is worth keeping an eye on.

Saratoga Race 6 (8.06pm)
Claiming $25,000 - Fillies and Mares - 3 year olds and upwards - 6 Furlongs - Dirt

My Tee Time (3) was claimed at Tampa in April. She's looked a new horse in two races at Suffolk for her current trainer. The aggregate winning distance was 20 lengths. Last time out at the end of June, she broke the five and half furlong track record. Besides starting with the same letter Saratoga and Suffolk have little in common. Maybe the competition will be too much but she may be worth siding with.

Mama Zee (1) pressed the pace before fading in a Monmouth stake last month. She won two out of three before that including allowance events at Aqueduct and Pimlico. This is a serious drop in class for a filly who has been in for a claiming tag before.

The class dropping Kelwynne (8) has claims here. She's been on the edges in second level allowance events at Parx since she won in April. Her trainer has a great record when he runs a horse for sale for the first time. In addition, she is a stalker and may trip out well just off the speed.

In theory, Coast Of Sangria (1) has no more to do than when beating Rosie My Way (6) easily for this price recently. With the class droppers in here, there is a strong possibility that this may be a better event and she'll have to run a tad faster.

My Donna Jean (5) has been freshened up since running below form twice in June. She had meaningful form prior to that.

Saratoga Race 7 (8.38pm)
Starter Allowance - Fillies and Mares - 3 year olds and upwards - 1 Mile - Turf

It's not been a great start to the meet for trainer Rudy Rodriguez. The usual high percentage trainer is winless from 18 starters but has had many places. He has chances earlier on the card and if any of them win Ear D' Rhythm (4) will be a more confident selection. She was brought down in an allowance event on her comeback after running well in two starts prior to that. The drop in class allied with a decent likely race flow give her decent claims.

Sundae School (7) has been placed in four starts since a maiden victory in April. She came close in a similar event this month and had the improving Wine Burglar (8) back in fifth.

Lonely Teardrops (6) looked a different filly when dropped into a maiden claimer for the first time, winning by open lengths. She should be effective at this distance but may get more pace pressure here. The blinkers on Benny's Bullet (3) may be one such. She's bang in form and is tried over a furlong further.

Stretch out sprinter Casey Roo (2) may be part of the pace brigade.

Saratoga Race 8 (9.10pm)
Allowance (entry level) - Fillies and Mares - 3 year olds and upwards - 6 Furlongs - Dirt

La Madrina (6) won by six lengths on her career debut at Gulfstream in March. In her only start since, she ran third in a Belmont allowance event. Both those races were over seven furlongs but she does shape like a dye-in-the-wool stayer. The way this race sets up, she may be a late player as the speed begins to melt.

Queen To Be (10) ran second in a state bred stake at Penn National posting a big speed figure in the process. Her last is a throw out as she had to be steadied in an allowance event at Monmouth. She has claims here. So has her barn mate Love You Loads (11). She disappointed a few times since a promising debut in January. At Monmouth last month, she looked the real deal winning by seven lengths.

Eddy Gourmet (5) went to the early lead and widened to beat claimers at Delaware. If she can survive the pace war here, she's a contender. So too is Tiz May West (4). She looked a fine prospect on her debut but was a tad disappointing second time out.

Second time starter Hobe Wins (8) and second time in The US Dear Mama (7) are not without clams. So too is the comebacking Ocean Boulevard (2). She broke her maiden at Saratoga and wasn't disgraced in a pair of stakes races after that.

Saratoga Race 9 (9.42pm)
The Coronation Cup - A stake for 3 year old fillies - 5 ½ Furlongs - Turf

Stars Above Me (7) ran well in two of her three races in handicap company in England this term. She makes her US debut for Graham Motion. As she is eligible for an entry level allowance event, her presence in a stake may be a hint of confidence by her trainer. She runs with lasix for the first time. Provided she breaks with the field, jockey Irad Ortiz may get her settled behind fast fractions.

The selection receives weight from the remainder along with Scatcapade (5). She's been closing late in longer events. This race may pan out well for her if all the speed stays in and runs to type. Recoupe (6) is one of the pace brigade. She's won her last three turf starts and may be up to the class rise.

Ruslana (1), Hot Squeeze (4) and Burn Control (3) all seem front or near the front types. The latter is unbeaten in two career starts at Parx. This will be her turf debut. It will be for Fat Kat (8) and Isabelle (9) who both didn't show their form in a Grade 3 at Belmont in June. The former was spent after attending a fast pace. New York bred stakes winner Isabelle never got competitive after being slowly away.

The improving Elena Strikes (10) looked great when winning her second allowance event at Belmont last month. She has a turf pedigree so the switch in surface may improve her. The outside post is not an advantage.

Stars Above Me (7)
