Not really a ton of horses today. With a majority of the stakes races being held yesterday, and a decent amount of the competitive 2-year old races being held yesterday, on Saturday.
We had a decent day with a handful of winners and a few place and show finishers. We have two horses today, both from Belmont and both are American Pharoah 2-year olds with endless potential.
Race 2 – #4 Turned Aside – Linda Rice trains this American Pharoah 2-year old, who has missed breaking the maiden each of his 2 career races, will stretch out to 2-turns. That bump in distance will help this horse, that is bred for distance. Fully expect the maiden to be snapped today!
Race 8 – #6 Orsay – There are a lot of expectations coming from this 2-year old. She is highly bred out of American Pharoah, who is a triple crown winner, and Life at Ten, who is a multiple time Grade 1 Stakes Winner. Those two combined to create this $1.2 million dollar yearling with a TON of potential. The workouts match the hype, as she has posted bullet works in 2 of the last 3 works. She is trained by Chad Cox and ridden Irad Ortiz. Can’t see a single flaw with this one in her debut!
