Belmont

9/30/17

Race #3 – Mdn Sp Wt – 1 1/16

#4 – Road to Meath = Jose Ortiz in the saddle for Chad Brown. Three wide into the turn and 4 wide into the stretch. This was his 2nd start lifetime and was cutting back in distance from 6 1/2f – 1 1/16. Maybe a little less distance may be just what the doctor ordered.

Race #7 – G1 Vosburgh – 6f

#6 – Celtic Chaos = 3rd off the layoff and moving up in class for Kiaran McLaughlin. Tons of early speed and he was 3-4 wide closing into to be 4th. Maybe dropping back to New York company may help as this race offered up positive signs.

Race #8 – G3 Pilgrim – 1 1/16 on the turf

#5 – Voting Control = Son of Kitten’s Joy from the Chad Brown barn looking for two-in-a-row. Javier Castellano snatched up his mount and was squeezed back shortly after the start. After the early shenanigans, he rallied up to be 2nd money.

 

Santa Anita

9/30/17

Race #8 – G1 Front Runner – 1 1/16

#8 – Solomini = Son of Curlin for the Bob Baffert barn looking for two-in-a-row. He was 4 wide into the turn and was wide throughout and caught a very tough Bolt d’ Oro winning by 7 3/4. He should rebound nicely and give us more to look forward to watching.

Race #9 – G1 Rodeo Drive – 1 1/4 on the turf

#3 – Responsibleforlove = She is 2/3 ITM at Santa Anita and was coming off a 45-day rest. She saved ground and stalked and was forced to tap on the brakes multiple times. After this eventful trip, she managed to finish a solid 3rd.
