Dynamic Strike on Hot Streak at Laurel Park

Dynamic Strike goes for four wins in a row, including two stakes, in Saturday’s $150,000 Private Terms Stakes at Laurel Park.

 

The 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 Saturday.

 

“I 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.”

 

Battier (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.

 

Bill 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.

 

Seventeenohsix (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.

 

Mike 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.

 

Seconds 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.

 

Lunar 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.  

 

Completing the field are Yougotthatgoinforu (20-1), Arrive (20-1) and Tru Greek (20-1).
