Paul Quigley's US Racing Preview
29 Aug 2015

It's been a tough few years for The New York Racing Association. Not only is it 10 years since The Breeders' Cup was last hosted in New York but it's not coming to at least 2018. In addition in recent times, full houses at Belmont Park have seen a succession of Triple Crown failures at the final hurdle. That all changed in June when American Pharoah broke the 37 year jinx. Not only did the people of The Empire State get to see history but the great horse is running in Saratoga's Midsummer Derby, The Travers Stakes. It is a great coup for the track and N.Y.R.A. To their relief, his presence hasn't frightened anybody away with a field of 10 entered.

American Pharoah will be awfully tough to beat at likely odds of one to plenty. The good news for Attheraces viewers is there are an additional five other Grade 1's and a Grade 2 to watch and wager on. As well as looking for any track bias in the earlier races, there is another major handicapping angle worth considering. It involves trainer Todd Pletcher who has numerous runners on the card. Up to Friday morning he was on a 23 race winless streak at the meet. His last winner at Saratoga was on 19 August. For a top outfit, that is a major drought. Now that could all change on Friday or in the early races on Saturday. If it does, upgrade his horses. If there are more doughnuts next to his name, taking a short price on the trainer's horses is ill advised.

PAUL'S ANALYSIS FROM  Saratoga races 6 to 12
Saturday 29 August 2015


Saratoga Race 6 (7.35pm)
The Personal Ensign (Grade 1) - Fillies and Mares - 3 year olds and upwards - 1 1/8 Miles - Dirt

Stopchargingmaria (4) added to her impressive Saratoga record when winning a Grade 3 here at the start of the month. She beat market rival Untapable (6) by a length with Tiz Windy (3) two and a half lengths further back. Stopchargingmaria has tactical speed and excels over nine furlongs. She won two Grade 1's locally last summer.

In a near perfect 2014, Untapable (6) won four Grade 1's including The Kentucky Oaks and Breeders' Cup Distaff. She's not been quite as good this term. The positives for her are this will be her second start back and she's 3lbs better off with the filly that beat her last time. In addition, this race sets up better as she seems best when taken off the pace.

Sheer Drama (2) comes off a victory in The Grade 1 Delaware Handicap. She had America (1) almost six lengths back in third. She's much improved. So too is Got Lucky (5) who has been mopping stakes at Monmouth.

Untapable (6)

Saratoga Race 7 (8.10pm)
The Ballerina (Grade 1) - Fillies and Mares - 3 years old and upwards - 7 Furlongs - Dirt

La Verdad (2) showed last time that she can show her top class form at Saratoga when winning a Grade 2 at the start of the meet. That was the win machine's first victory here. She did it in her usual all the way manner, beating Street Story (8) by four lengths. Although she has won over a one turn mile in the past, she may be better at distances short of seven furlongs in this sort of company. She did fade badly in this event last year although it could be argued she's in much better form now. Her chances may depend on if Jose Ortiz can get her clear early on from the gals drawn either side of her.

Merry Meadow (3) has speed but did stalk the pace when winning a Grade 2 at Gulfstream with Kiss To Remember (5) back in third. Her stamina may be in question at this level going another furlong. That's not the case with Dame Dorothy (6) who excels at the trip. She's unbeaten in seven starts over extended trips over one turn, four coming at seven furlongs. She beat Breeders' Cup Filly and Mare sprint champion Judy the Beauty in a Grade 1 at Churchill in May. Last time out, she had a pretty simple task and have weight and a beating Street Story (8). She is prime contender here.

Unbridled Forever (7) has spent most of her career in top company, routing. She tried seven furlongs for her 2015 comeback earlier this month and closed to win an ungraded stake. That's now two from two at this specialist distance. It may be that these top class fillies don't come back to her but she may be worth chancing. On class this multiple Grade 1 placed filly is not far off the best of these.

Room For Me (4) has come a long way since being claimed for only $12,500 in February. She won a stake by almost six lengths at Monmouth four weeks ago. She ran poorly behind Dame Dorothy prior to that but did get very close to La Verdad in May.

Saratoga Race 8 (8.47pm)
The NYRA.com King's Bishop (Grade 1) - 3 year olds - 7 Furlongs - Dirt

The streaking Holy Boss (7) is hard to knock. His Grade 2 Amsterdam win here was his fourth in a row and a career best effort. It came on his comeback a couple of months freshening and is likely to be a springboard for this Grade 1. The extra half mile of this event shouldn't be a problem. He has speed but can stalk if the likes of Runhappy (11) and Limousine Liberal (6) are sent hard for the lead.

March (10) had won back to back graded stakes before running poorly behind Holy Boss here. His trainer is now leading the standings at this meet. You don't do that by running horses where they can't win. There is every chance he rebounds at a priced here, especially if he gets some speed to chase down. His Grade 2 Woody Stephens victory (over this trip) was franked when the fourth Classy Class (8) came back to win next time.

Competitive Edge (3) set the pace before seeing American Pharoah run away from him in the nine furlong Grade 1 Haskell. It was a big improvement on a poor run behind March at Belmont in June. He was unbeaten in four career starts going into that Grade 2. That included a Grade 1 victory as juvenile over course and distance almost a year ago.

Mr. Z (5) has been pot-hunting to great effect this summer. A victory in the $500,000 Ohio Derby was followed by a runner up try in The Indiana version. He's interesting cutting back in distance.

The improving Grand Bili (2) comes off a Grade 3 victory at Gulfstream. Trainer Kiaran McLaughlin thinks that much of Watershed (4), he's running in a Grade 1 after winning by open lengths in a maiden on debut.

Saratoga Race 9 (9.25pm)
The Priority One Jets Forego (Grade 1) - 3 year olds and upwards - 7 Furlongs - Dirt

This may be as simple as multiple Grade 1 winner Private Zone (7) going down to the start and coming back again. The Breeders' Cup Sprint third has looked just as good in four starts this year. He set swift fractions when third in The Grade 1 Met Mile. When shortened up to today's trip in a Grade 3, he wired a decent field easily. The six year old looks lone speed here. He's worked super at Monmouth before shipping here. This will be his first start at Saratoga. The was he breezed four furlongs in sub 46 seconds here last Saturday suggests that won't be an issue.

Tamarkuz (6) was just over a length behind Private Zone in The Met Mile. Admittedly, the speedster was being used on the front end but The Shadwell owned colt did some running too. He made a big middle move into a hot pace. It was no surprise his run petered out and he faded late on. It was his first run since rattling up a four timer at The Dubai Carnival. He looks at least an exacta chance here.

It was at this meeting last summer that The Big Beast (5) started to shine. He won twice including The Grade 1 King's Bishop. He had to miss the rest of the year and has been slow to find his best form. That was until a six furlong Grade 1 here four weeks ago where he lost a head bob. If that run brings him on, he's a player here now stepping up in distance.

Race Day (1) was in super form earlier in the year. He returned in a Grade 3 at Monmouth and ran like a drain. He's shortened up to seven furlongs which may not be a problem as he has fine one turn mile form. He's worked well and is a rebound candidate.

Salutos Amigos (10) was behind The Big Beast here last time. He's a bit better than that although may be a length or two shy of being top class.

Saratoga Race 10 (10.04pm)
The Sword Dancer (Grade 1) - 3 year olds and upwards - 1 ½ Miles - Turf

Flintshire (2) has freshened up since running dual Arc winner Treve close at Saint Cloud in June. That was his fourth placing in top company in Europe and Dubai in 2015. After running second in The Arc last year, he filled the same position in The Breeders' Cup Turf. Six weeks later, he finally got his head in front in a Group 1 in Hong Kong. It may be harsh to call him hard to win with as he took on some the best around in the last 18 months.

Top US form comes from Red Rifle (1), War Dancer (8) and Imagining (1). They ran 1-2-3 in that order in a Grade 2 prep for this event earlier this month. The winner is much improved of late but the placed horses aren't without hope too. The runner up may get a soft lead and Imagining lost by a head in this event last year.

Twilight Eclipse (5) won a Grade 1 at Belmont in May by a neck from War Dancer (8). He was not too far behind Flintshire (2) at The Breeders' Cup last November.

The other pair of note are German and former German trained. Guardini (7) is a Group 2 winner at home. Messi (6) has won both his starts Stateside and now steps up in class. He is trained now by Graham Motion who handled former Euro Main Sequence so well in this division last year.

Saratoga Race 11 (10.46pm)
The Travers (Grade 1) - 3 year olds - 1 ¼ Miles - Dirt

Triple Crown winner American Pharoah (2) returned from a two month break to beat an overmatched field in The Grade 1 Haskell at Monmouth. He beat Keen Ice (2) by over two lengths with Upstart (1) a further three lengths back. That was the closest the runner up has got in three tries against American Pharoah. Upstart may have more upside as he'd looked promising until being eased in The Kentucky Derby.

What makes American Pharoah hard to get away from is not only is he the best horse in this field by some margin but he has a pace advantage too. If Victor Espinosa wants to put him on the lead, he can do. That's the problem for the chances of the obvious second tier contenders behind him.

Texas Red (4) lost to American Pharoah at Del Mar as a juvenile and then benefitted from his absence through injury at The Breeders' Cup. He himself had a setback and has run two smashing races since he returned in July. In the latter, he beat Belmont stakes runner up Frosted (6) by half a length in The Grade 2 Jim Dandy here. The runner up was having his first start since the third leg of The Triple Crown and reportedly lost a shoe. He may improve a little but needs the odds on favourite to run a few lengths below form to win. He's my idea of without the favourite wager or best upset candidate with a saver forecast.

PAUL'S SELECTION
Frosted (6)

Straight Exacta (1 bet): American Pharoah (2) over Frosted (6)

Saratoga Race 12 (11.20pm)
The Ketel One Ballston Spa (Grade 2) - Fillies and Mares - 3 year olds and upwards - 1 1/16 Miles - Turf

Tepin (1) suddenly came good at the age if four. She rattled up a hat-trick including a Grade 1 at Belmont in June. After some freshening, she returned in The Grade 1 Diana here and lost by a head. She had Kitten's Queen (7) a neck back in third and My Miss Sophia (3) two lengths back in fourth. The slight cut back in distance isn't an issue and she draws well to get a stalking trip.

As well as Kitten's Queen, trainer Chad Brown has entered Danza Cavallo (2) and Dacita (4). The former ran well in a Grade 1 at Santa Anita in May but pulled too hard in a 12 furlong Grade 3 on her return. Barn mate Dacita makes her Stateside debut here. The last time she raced in December she beat the boys in a Grade 1 in Chile. She's worked nicely and may be more than a match for the local gals. That could also be the case with The Hugo Palmer trained New Providence (9). The York Group 3 winner in July has never run further than seven furlongs. It will be interesting to see how Junior Alvarado rides her. The European way would be to hold her up but she has been ridden near the pace in some of her races.

Coffee Clique (8) comes off a Grade 3 win at Parx. She was beaten in back to back stakes by Tepin prior to that.

PAUL'S SELECTION
Tepin (1)
