Paul Quigley's US Racing Preview
17 Sep 2014

There's a fantastic card at Parx on Saturday. The Grade 2 Pennsylvania Derby sees the return of Kentucky Derby winner California Chrome. Before that, there's plenty of good racing and some fine betting opportunities. Hopefully the seven races I've previewed from Belmont for Wednesday will produce a few winners.

PAUL'S ANALYSIS FROM  Belmont Park races 1 to 7
Wednesday 17 September 2014


Belmont Park Race 1 (6.05pm)
Allowance Optional Claiming - Fillies and Mares - 3 year olds and upwards - 1 Mile - Turf

Kenzadargent (6) was a bit of a bridesmaid in France with seven seconds and only one career victory. In fairness, most of those near misses came in group races. She made her US debut in an entry level allowance event at Saratoga last month. Sent off a well backed favourite, she rallied to win going away by a length. This is a step up in class but her Saratoga effort is likely to be a springboard for better performances.

Like the selection, Rubindy (1) goes for trainer Chad Brown. She's shown fair form on dirt but there grounds for thinking she may improve on her grass debut. Her half brother is Beautician, a Grade 1 winner on turf.

Almost An Angel (2) won at Parx in early August. She wasn't discredited at this allowance level at Saratoga a fortnight later. If the barn mates don't improve, she's a player at a decent price. Her jockey might try to sit close up behind stretch out sprinter Wellingtons Appeal (5). She's been beaten two lengths or less in a pair of stakes lately. If she stays, she contends.

PAUL'S SELECTION
Kenzadargent (6)

Belmont Park Race 2 (6.36pm)
Maiden Claiming $20,000 - 3 year olds and upwards - 6 Furlongs - Dirt

Invasion Point (1) is bred to get much further but he's a free going sort who may be a better sprinter. He was cut back to seven furlongs a week ago and showed bright speed before fading. Trainer Mike Maker cuts him in distance, halves his claiming price and takes the blinkers off. The switch to dirt won't hurt as he shaped well on the surface at Saratoga in August. If Javier Castellano can get him settled on the lead, he may go wire to wire.

Artemus Paperboy (9) is a former barn mate of the selection. He was claimed by David Jacobson on his four year old debut in July. He tried a tougher maiden here 11 days ago and was never competitive. Second time back after a lay off and a drop in class may make him tough to beat.

Wishandaprayer (6) is a newcomer whose works have improved in the last month or so. He is worth a look along with Royalty Reigns (7). He ran evenly on his career debut on dirt. His only other start is a toss out as he had a troubled trip on the turf.

Belmont Park Race 3 (7.07pm)
Claiming $40,000 - Fillies and Mares - 3 year olds and upwards - non winners of 2 races lifetime - 6 Furlongs - Turf

The consistent Dattts Da Boss (3) is a big player on form. She was placed twice at this claiming level at Saratoga in August. Those races were over slightly shorter but she is just as good over this distance. The worry with her is she's 1 for 20 lifetime and that one came many runs ago. There's nothing to suggest she is ungenuine but horses like her often need a perfect storm of a trip to win (at a shortish price).

Saratoga Karaoke (4) is a similar type of filly although her maiden breaker did come in May. She finished behind Dattts Da Boss twice at Saratoga. The extra ground of this event is definitely in this stretch runner's favour.

Stage Name (2) has a lay off from June to defy but may be worth chancing. She's not been getting home over a mile and has the pace to be effective at six furlongs. The drop in class from starter allowance events suggests she's live on her return. Blinkers on may mean jockey Paco Lopez tries to gain a winning margin from the other favourites in the early stages.

The win shy Malibu Queen (10) has solid place claims. On form she's a contender for a win but has a habit of settling for less. Blisstering Strike (9) is one for one in turf sprints and may be the best chance of an upset.

Belmont Park Race 4 (7.38pm)
Maiden Special Weight - New York bred 2 year old fillies - 6 Furlongs - Turf

Best guess in a tough maiden to get a handle on is R Y Squadron (4). She debuts for Chad Brown with some nice work outs to her name. Her trainer has an excellent record on turf and with first time starters.

Hot Like Hepburn (9) debuts for another top turf trainer in Linda Rice. Her record with newcomers is nowhere near as good as Brown's and her filly's work outs are not as strong. She is really nicely bred although more for dirt than grass.

Stolen Victory (1) has worked forwardly for her career debut. She may come out running judging by her three furlong drills. Maybe her jockey can make full use of her rail draw.

Light Years Away (8) has a nice pedigree but debuts without lasix.

PAUL'S SELECTION
R Y Squadron (4)

EXOTIC BETS
Reversed Exacta (2 bets): Stolen Victory (1) and R Y Squadron (4)

Belmont Park Race 5 (8.09pm)
Claiming $20,000 - 3 year olds and upwards - 1 1/16 Miles - Dirt

Chairman Now (8) has been a revelation this summer. He's rattled up a four timer with the last two victories coming at Saratoga. In the latest, he won by nose from Bedouin Now (1). He may be better than his speed figures suggest, only doing enough to win. The cut back in distance, particularly going from two to one turn could be his downfall.

M J Plus (2) was compromised by being parked behind soft fractions in an allowance event here. He's dropped back into the claiming ranks and makes a quick turnaround. His trainer David Jacobson has made a terrific start to this meet. He gets the vote here.

North Ocean (4) is a tough read. The back classer was claimed off a speed and fade effort at Saratoga in late July. Jason Service now brings him back off a lay off and offers him for sale at a 50% discount. It is a worry but it could simply be claiming poker. A fine record at Belmont is in his favour.

North Ocean is likely to be an early factor with another Belmont specialist Love To Run (6). If either horse was to scratch, the other would be lone speed. Food for thought.

PAUL'S SELECTION
M J Plus (2)

Reversed Exacta (2 bets): M J Plus (2) and North Ocean (4)

Belmont Park Race 6 (8.41pm)
Starter Allowance - 3 year olds and upwards - 1 1/16 Miles - Turf

March Reward (5) ran evenly when dropped to a high end claimer at the end of last month. He was claimed out of that event by trainer Mike Maker. He runs him in a protected spot first time with him which seems a positive. The addition of blinkers and decent back races to his name make him the tepid pick.

Broadway Zen (7) had a tough trip in an allowance event at Saratoga in August. He's better judged on a good effort at the same level at Churchill and a third in a stake at Indiana. He has speed and his jockey may be able to get to the front and be gear him down. That said, the selection and Defining Product (6) could be ridden hard early on.

Pep The Champ (9) followed up a maiden success with a close up third at this level in early August. He's really improved since he ran in blinkers in his last two starts. Smokey Brown (2) who finished behind him last time had an awful trip. He now races with lasix for the first time. He's a chance along with last time maiden breaker Boss Man (8) and recent claim Forever Thing (3)

Killer Crossover (1A) is in form. Barn mate Stableford (1A) has fine back races.

March Reward (5)

Belmont Park Race 7 (9.13pm)
Allowance (entry level) - Fillies and Mares - New York bred three year olds and upwards - 6 Furlongs - Dirt

My Girl Madison (8) looks the gal to catch here. She showed her usual early speed when running a close second on her return at Monmouth last month. The drop from open to state bred company may make her hard to reel in.

Blithely (7) and Very Accomplished (1A) ran second and third respectively in a similar event over seven furlongs at Saratoga. The former was coming off over a year's lay off and didn't quite seem to see out the final furlong. She can stalk and may be worth siding with in the expectation of second time improvement.

The Lost Tigress (1) and Daddy's Lil Saint (5) also filled the places in a similar event at Saratoga. That race was run in the mud. Both fillies had showed improved form there and interestingly, both had good off track pedigrees. They contend if that run wasn't a fluke.

Ms. Sylvia A. (6) was on a hat-trick when tackling a stake in May. This is her first start since then. Verismilitude (4) broke her maiden on turf second time out. She shaped well on debut, on dirt.
