Outside Post for Blame in Foster

Multiple Grade 2 winner BLAME (Arch) will bring a three-race winning streak into the $600,000 Stephen Foster H. (G1), including an excellent victory in the Clark H. (G2) at Churchill Downs last fall, and rates as the horse to beat in Saturday's 1 1/8-mile event. However, the Al Stall Jr. runner didn't receive any favors in the post position draw, receiving the far outside in a strong 11-horse field that includes New Orleans H. (G2) winner BATTLE PLAN (Empire Maker), multiple Grade 1 victor GENERAL QUARTERS (Sky Mesa), Alysheba S. (G3) hero ARSON SQUAD (Brahms), Oaklawn H. (G2) conqueror DUKE OF MISCHIEF (Graeme Hall) and defending champion MACHO AGAIN (Macho Uno). Read More

Should he win the Stephen Foster Handicap at Churchill Downs today? I think that Blame would then have to be the only other older colt that would potentially be considered at the level that Quality Road is at right now racing over conventional dirt. Quality Road's achievements are more impressive because he has more than one Grade 1 victory to his credit. Blame, while having won 5 of 6 races over conventional dirt, and his only loss being a 2nd to Regal Ransom in the Super Derby, has yet to land a Grade 1 Stakes. He has three Grade 2 win's. One Grade 3 win. Plus, he also has one allowance win and a win in the Curlin Stakes, which is a listed stakes. But I don't think there's any question that Blame is colt that's more than ready to face Grade 1 competition. The Stephen Foster Handicap should be a very good gauge as to how this colt will handle the step up in competition. Should he win the Stephen Foster today? I'd love the prospect of Blame going to Saratoga as well this summer and potentially facing Quality Road in either the Whitney Handicap or the Woodward Stakes. Which are the two races that Todd Pletcher has stated Quality Road will race in at Saratoga this summer.
