Paul Quigley's US Racing Preview
23 Aug 2014

It's Grade 1 Travers Day on Saturday. The Midsummer Derby has attracted a trio of top drawer three year olds. One of them is Bob Baffert's Bayern. He went wire to wire in The Grade 1 Haskell at Monmouth last month. As he rode the speed bias, I made a mental note that I was going to oppose him with my betting bank in his next start. The problem is he's lone speed here. If the early results suggest speed is king, I'll be jumping aboard. As things stand, I prefer the principals from The Grade 2 Jim Dandy.

The Travers is not the only Grade 1 live on Attheraces Stateside on Saturday. Sprinting males and females get their chance in The King's Bishop and The Ballerina respectively. There is also a cracking Grade 2 on the turf. Add in three more stakes from Monmouth and Woodbine and it's another not to be missed night.

PAUL'S ANALYSIS FROM  Monmouth Park, Saratoga and Woodbine
Saturday 23 August 2014


Woodbine Race 4 (7.39pm)
The Flaming Page - A stake for fillies and mares - 3 year olds and upwards - 1 ½ Miles - Turf

Savvy Hester (4) looks the gal to beat off her head third in a Grade 2 here last month. That run was no fluke as she ran well in another graded stake in May. The question is this mile and a half distance. Maybe with such a small field, her stamina won't be put to the test.

Auld Alliance (5) has been shipped up north by trainer Graham Motion. She broke her maiden over this trip when trained by Sir Michael Stoute. Her US career started off with a victory in an allowance event at Belmont. She's been in a pair of tougher spots since and has the form to compete against the locals.

Cry War Eagle (3) beat Savvy Hester on Polytrack last back end. She shaped well at Churchill on her seasonal return. The distance is the unknown. Much less so for Players Club (6) who won an allowance even over 11 furlongs earlier this month.

Sky High Lady (1) was entitled to need her 2014 comeback and goes for the meet's top trainer.

Saratoga Race 9 (8.59pm)
The Ballston Spa (Grade 2) - Fillies and Mares - 3 year olds and upwards - 1 1/16 Miles - Turf

Dayatthespa (5) lost narrowly in pair of Grade 1's at the end of 2013. She reappeared after a long absence in a stake here. After setting the pace, she was ran down late by Filimbi (7). In her favour this time is no pace pressure and the likelihood of being a lot fitter. That loss was her first in four races at Saratoga. She is taken to make all here.

The former French trained Filimbi (7) looks to be improving rapidly. Even if Dayatthespa is a bit straighter, she may run passed her again. She won two races on soft going last autumn so if the turf course is rain-affected, she'll be suited by it.

Abaco (3) hasn't run a bad one in top company all year. She's been compromised by being parked off slow fractions this term including when fourth in The Grade 1 Diana here. That prospect may reoccur here unless Night Song (6) is drilled to duel with Dayatthespa.

Strathnaver (4) and Centre Court (2) are talented off-the-pacers. Both are well up to this class. Like Abaco, they may find that the speed doesn't stop if the pace is only even.

Saratoga Race 10 (9.33pm)
The Ketel One King's Bishop (Grade 1) - 3 year olds - 7 Furlongs - Dirt

Key to the outcome here is the pace scenario. The unbeaten Fast Anna (6) has looked super when battering lesser rivals in two starts at Gulfstream. If he can clear the other speed, he may be able to make the big step up in class.

Noble Moon (5) has shown speed in the past. So did C. Zee (1) last time. The Big Beast (7) did when making all in his last two starts. His wide margin allowance win was his best effort so far. At the very least, he is a pace partner to Fast Anna. More likely he is a contender too, probably sitting just off his speedy rival.

Wildcat Red (2) stalked Bayern on a speed favouring Monmouth track and faded to finish third. Prior to that, he'd shown plenty of ability. He was many people's dark horse for the Kentucky Derby after a fine run in Florida. The last time he ran over seven furlongs, he won a Gulfstream Grade 3 by open lengths. He looks a prime contender here.

When Wildcat Red won over this trip, he had C. Zee (1) well beaten. That colt filled the same position behind Coup De Grace (8) in a Grade 2 here last month. The winner will feature here if there is a speed duel up front.

Noble Cornerstone (4) is a talented New York bred on a hat-trick. His best effort came last time here over a similar trip.

Woodbine Race 8 (9.52pm)
The Ontario Colleen (Grade 3) - 3 year old fillies - 1 Mile - Turf

Ready To Act (1) makes her first start for top local trainer Mark Casse. He won a Grade 2 on Polytrack in April and before that was successful in a grass stake at Gulfstream. She lost nothing in defeat last time in The Penn National Oaks. With tactical speed, the inside post should suit her.

Daring Kathy (9) went wire to wire to win two Gulfstream stakes before trying a Grade 2 at Saratoga. She set a slow tempo there and was outfinished but not beaten far. Maybe running in restraint didn't suit her that much. She may be sent hard here.

Unspurned (6) went wire to wire in a Polytrack stake in July. At the winning line, she was over two lengths clear of Hot And Spicy. Both fillies may be up to this level. So too may lightly raced improver Holy Empress (3).

Speed Seeker (5) is a really interesting back at Woodbine. She won on her debut before trying the same Saratoga Grade 2 as Daring Kathy. Considering her inexperience, she didn't run that badly finishing just behind that talented filly. Reunited with jockey Luis Contreras, she's a price chance.

The former California based Sushi Empire (4) has tried graded stakes in her last two starts. She has an upset chance under Pablo Morales.

Saratoga Race 11 (10.08pm)
The Ballerina (Grade 1) - Fillies and Mares - 3 year olds and upwards - 7 Furlongs - Dirt

Artemis Agrotera (1) may offer a bit of value here. She won The Grade 1 Frizette last October. That victory has been flattered by the second and third winning Grade 1's at this meeting. She faced a simple task here last month but came back to form winning by 10 lengths over this distance.

Dual Grade 1 winner Better Lucky (2) made a rare reappearance on the dirt in July. She won a deep stake for the money on offer only narrowly. If the track is playing fair, maybe she can give this field a dozen lengths start and a beating. Only half a length behind her that day was the comebacking My Miss Aurelia (4). She stalked a quick pace and kept on well considering that was her fist run since March 2013. Second time back could mean progression or regression. On balance, she rates a long look.

La Verdad (6) was on a five timer when fifth in a Grade 2 here. She's a dangerous frontrunner at her best. If she out sprints Voodoo Tales (7) and Geeky Gorgeous (9) early on, she may go wire to wire.

Willet (5) doesn't have the high profile connections of the leading contenders. She is a state bred at the top of her game right now. Last time she faced a simple task but prior to that, she'd ran La Verdad close in a stake at Belmont.

Saratoga Race 12 (10.45pm)
The Travers (Grade 1) - 3 year olds - 1 ¼ Miles - Dirt

Bayern (2) rode the bias when making all in The Grade 1 Haskell Invitational. The problem with those who want to be against him is he looks lone speed here. If the track is slick, he may be tough to catch.

In the hope that it is at least a fair playing field, a couple of others have at least as good a credentials. Wicked Strong (7) and Tonalist (8) ran 1-2 in the traditional Grade 2 prep for this, The Jim Dandy. The winner had won The Grade 1 Wood Memorial before a couple of tough luck efforts in The Kentucky Derby and The Belmont. Tonalist was progressive going into The Belmont. His Grade 2 Peter Pan success prior proved he wasn't just a plodder. He may have not been fully wound up in The Jim Dandy and may be reverse the form. With tactical speed, he may sit closer than his old rival and get first run on him.

A few others in here also come out of The Jim Dandy. The admirable Kid Cruz (8) was beaten six lengths. He's not really up to Grade 1 standard. Neither is the fourth, Kentucky Derby runner up Commanding Curve (1). The fifth Ulanbator (9) looks to have slim prospects.

V. E. Day (4) may be a late bloomer. He started his career on turf but he's 2 for 2 on dirt. Last time out in a small stake here, he beat Charge Now (3) by a head. Viva Majorca (5) was just behind in fourth.

The most interesting horse of the bigger prices is Grade 1 turf stake winner Mr Speaker (10). He has the class and the pedigree to handle dirt. He's worked nicely on the surface and has an upset chance.

Monmouth Park Race 11 (10.59pm)
The Violet (Grade 3) - Fillies and Mares - 3 year olds and upwards - 1 1/8 Miles - Turf

Horse for course Starstruck (3) beat Irish Mission (13) in a Grade 3 here on Haskell Day. A big weight pull for the runner up in theory gives her the edge this time. In favour of the winner is a cozy draw near the fence whilst her rival starts from the car park.

Overheard (10) is another penalized gal. She won a Grade 2 at her local track of Woodbine in July. Connections must like this spot very much as there's plenty of good prize money to be had at her home base. She's shipped south and won before. Last October, she beat Nellie Cashman (11) by a length in a Keeneland Grade 3. That filly ran her best race of the year at Parx in July and could be peaking at the right time. She is also engaged in a Grade 2 at Saratoga.

Triple Arch (9) won an allowance event on the dirt here before disappointing in a Grade 2. In June, she ran second in a Grade 3 on turf. Just behind her that day was Rusty Slipper (8). That lightly raced filly has been freshened up since and is worth a look.
