Dynamic Strike goes for four wins in a row, including two stakes, in Saturday’s $150,000 Private Terms Stakes at Laurel Park.
promising son of Smart Strike is trained by Dickie Small and has known
no other rider than Forrest Boyce in his four lifetime starts. Last time
out, in the one mile Miracle Wood Stakes on February 9, Dynamic Strike
(5-2) was allowed to settle seven lengths off the pace before sweeping
up to post a driving, one length victory. In his two previous victories,
the colt won while racing close to the lead. He gets to go around two
turns this time and gets an added furlong to launch his attack on
was really pleased about the last win because he did it a little
differently,” Boyce said. “He is tough. He makes you work for
everything. He still has a lot of growing up to do but each time he
seems to learn more and more. I don’t think we have gotten to the bottom
of him, which is promising.”
(4-1) has won three races in a row for trainer Pablo Andrade, all at
Parx Racing. His tactical speed will play to his advantage on Saturday
as he makes his first stakes attempt. Angel Castillo retains the mount.
Mott trains Mr Palmer (5-1), a maiden winner at Aqueduct last time out.
He posted an 86 Beyer speed figure in that test, the highest among the
ten who are entered in the Private Terms. Junior Alvarado will accompany
the Pulpit colt from New York.
(5-1) has won two-of-seven starts, including a score against allowance
runners at Parx in his most recent outing. However, the Dance With
Ravens colt has finished off the board in three stakes attempts.
Kendrick Carmouche has the riding assignment for trainer John Servis.
Trombetta will saddle Where’s Dominic (6-1), who finished a length
behind Dynamic Strike in the Miracle Wood. Julian Pimentel will be
aboard the Midnight Lute colt, who defeated the favorite in mid-October.
in both the Tri State Futurity and Maryland Juvenile Championship are
the best black type performances by Hanky Doodle (10-1), a Gary Capuano
trainee. Trevor McCarthy rode him for the first time on February 27 and
helped the son of Cherokee’s Boy surge to victory over optional
claimers. McCarthy retains the mount.
Rock (10-1) has finished in the money in 10-of-11 lifetime starts,
including four third place finishes in stakes company. Sheldon Russell
will be aboard on this son of Cherokee’s Boy, who is trained by Gary
Capuano’s brother, Dale.
