New York, Christophe Clemont, Manny Franco discussed on The Horse Racing Radio Network Podcast
Let's do fuski island. I went to the favorite senbei. I think even if the others improve they're going to have to really improve to beat them. That doesn't mean he can't get beat. But I like the fact that he showed that he doesn't have to have the lead to still when he had been going to the lead the first three starts of his career last time out. He stalked the pace and one of those New York breeders futurity races up at finger lakes went by and powered away to a very impressive win. I think he's getting better and better for Christophe clemont and Manny Franco who's been aboard for all of his starts once again will be aboard Sunday in the notebook send bay for me, daufuskie island for bob in the $100,000 notebook race three on the Sunday card at aqueduct. We're going to jump forward all the way to the 9th race on the Sunday card at aqueduct and their co featured event is the $100,000 key sense. These are New York bread, two year old Phillies going 6 furlongs on the main track. We've got a field of 8 here, and another race where it's really tough to figure out who you're going to want to take a stand with. Because you've got some runners here that are coming off gigantic wins, like Cupid's heart, like classy edition. Then you have number 7 making my move who was so impressive in her debut and really didn't run poorly trying the turf in the grade three matron last time out. Some other up and comers were Jan bob. On the 6 class edition, who, I think, the morning Einstein to 5, and I think she'll go off much shorter than that. I think she's the kind of New York bread that will probably be looking for open company when she had a magic she's going to Gulfstream park. She's one really easily and she's shown a lot of ability and are two stars, including last time in her stakes debut on the mud at Belmont, and to me she's just a really, really talented two year old Philly from the pleasure bar, and I expect her to have a big say and what happens next year with the three year old Phillies at Gulfstream. See, now you think she's going to go to Gulfstream. I think the purses are so good for the New York breads, and let's face it, the competition in the wintertime in New York is not quite what it is in the winter time at Gulfstream park. I would not be surprised if she stays in New York all year. Todd Fletcher, you know, the bulk of his runners are going to be in South Florida. He always keeps a string in New York. He'll shuttle some back and forth. So I would not be surprised if for now they stick with that money against New York breads and keep her there. I have nothing bad to say. I wouldn't be surprised either if you're correct, but I just think she might be pretty high up the pecking order in the pletcher barn, and I do expect the 8 sees a wild joker the daughter of practical joke is not a great first season to run a better race. I think she'll hit the board of the big price. Okay, so bob likes the favorite number 6 classy addition thinks number H use a wild joker is an interesting one to at least be underneath in that spot. I had a tough time deciding between number 5 qubits, number 6 classy edition number 7, making my move. Very slight push to the 7, making my move, she was great in her career debut in one of those tough maiden special weight events up at Saratoga and she just dumped truck the field that day. Winning by a dozen links they liked her enough that they tried her in the grade three matron sprinting on the turf in her next start, and she tried to, you know, she not only tried to surface she had never tried. She tried tougher competition than what she had seen before. And she wasn't able to get the lead in that race. And she still ran pretty well. She ran forth only beaten the length and a half Philly was just in front of her mystic eyes, came back in one in her next start. I happen to think that making my move will be better on the dirt than she was on the turf, now facing winners for the second time getting back to what I think will be her preferred surface. I'm going to put her on top. Plus, I think she'll be in front of Cupid's heart and classy edition. They will have to pass her at some point if they want to get the win. So I'm going to take number 7 making my move on top. If I'm playing horizontally, I'm using all three. Cupid's heart classy edition, making my move, making my move, though on top for me, a number 6 classy edition on top for buy race number 9 Sunday at aqueduct the $100,000 key cents for the New York bred two year old Phillies, sprinting 6 furlongs. We're going to take our final break. When we come back, we'll continue to look at the Sunday action. Go north of the border to woodbine and out to the West Coast at del mar, you're listening to the weekend stakes preview presented by nyra betts on the horse racing radio network..
