Nellie Cashman Meets Full Crew in Valley View

Sycamore Racing’s Nellie Cashman, who had to decline an invitation to last Saturday’s Queen Elizabeth II Challenge Cup (G1) because of a slight fever, headlines a field of 12 three-year-old fillies and two also-eligibles entered Tuesday for Friday’s 23rd running of the $150,000 Pin Oak Valley View (G3) at 1 1/16 miles on the turf.

The Pin Oak Valley View will go as the ninth race on Friday’s 10-race program with a 5:21 p.m. (ET) post time.

Trained by Francis Abbott III, Nellie Cashman won the Virginia Oaks (G3) at Colonial Downs in July, and in her most recent start was disqualified from a victory in the Woodford Reserve Lake Placid (G2) at Saratoga for drifting out in the stretch.

Forest Boyce, who has ridden Nellie Cashman in her past two races, has the call Friday and will break from post position one.

Chief among the opposition to Nellie Cashman are the 1-2 finishers from this spring’s Appalachian (G3) here, Unbelievable Dream and Overheard.

Sure Thing Stables’ Unbelievable Dream, trained by Barclay Tagg, comes into the Pin Oak Valley View off a third-place finish in the Riskaverse at Saratoga. Rosie Napravnik has the mount Friday and will break from post position 12.

No filly has swept the Appalachian and Pin Oak Valley View.

Pin Oak Stable’s Overheard, trained by Malcolm Pierce, finished second in her past two races to Leigh Court, who set the pace in the QE II before finishing fourth. Eurico Da Silva, who has been aboard Overheard in her past four races, has the call Friday and will break from post position eight.

The field for the Pin Oak Valley View, from the rail out, is as follows: Nellie Cashman (Boyce, 122 pounds), She’s Popular(Corey Lanerie, 118), Summer of Fun (Joe Rocco Jr., 118), Stormin Elle (E.T. Baird, 118), Yuzuru (Angel Serpa, 118),Frivolous (Jon Court, 118), Every Way (James Graham, 118), Overheard (Da Silva, 118), Miss Lamour (Eddie Castro, 118),Sustained (Junior Alvarado, 118), I O Ireland (Shaun Bridgmohan, 118) and Unbelievable Dream (Napravnik, 122). Also-eligibles: Hedonemewrongsong (Kent Desormeaux, 118) and Sense to Compete (Alan Garcia, 118).  
 

 

 

 

What the Nation is saying about Nellie Cashman Meets Full Crew in Valley View ...

Rocco should take the bull by the horns with the favorite dropping out of the Garden City in what shapes up as another Euro jog. If not, how about you, E. T. Baird? Elle Storm has speed and goes from Slomkowski? {anyone know of this 21% trainer?} to Catalano. 1 work since transfer is a ?. If it comes off the turf like today’s Sycamore, poly could be a +.
Nellie Cashman, Sustained, and Every Way
