Mike Repole’s Overanalyze seeks his second stakes victory on Saturday in the Grade 2, $250,000 Remsen for 2-year-olds.

A 3 ¼-length winner of the Grade 2 Futurity in September at Belmont Park, Overanalyze comes into the Remsen off a third-place finish in the Grade 3 Iroquois at Churchill Downs. As the 9-5 favorite, the Dixie Union colt raced wide in sixth through the early going, fell back on the turn and then rallied to gain third, eight lengths behind Uncaptured. He will run as part of an entry with Repole’s Micromanage, who came off a five-length maiden victory to finish fifth in the Grade 1 Foxwoods Champagne.

“They’re two up-and-coming colts and it’s good to get 1 1/8 miles under their belt,” said Repole, whose colors also will be carried Saturday by Stay Thirsty in the Cigar Mile. “This is a big day for Repole Stable. Most people would split them up, but for me to have two colts in the Remsen and a filly [Unlimited Budget] in the Demoiselle and Stay Thirsty in the Cigar Mile, Saturday is my Breeders’ Cup.”

Trainer Todd Pletcher has named Ramon Dominguez, New York’s leading rider, aboard Overanalyze for the first time as he leaves from post position 7. Micromanage will be ridden by Hall of Famer John Velazquez from post position 3, with the entry listed at 4-1 on the morning line.

Completing a Pletcher-trained triumvirate for the Remsen is Twin Creeka Racing Stables’ Delhomme, who is tabbed as the 2-1 morning-line favorite from post position 4 with Javier Castellano in the irons.

Second as the favorite in his debut at Saratoga Race Course, Delhomme then posted a front-running maiden victory on October 13 at Belmont. The Dixie Union colt, who fetched $440,000 in March, covered a mile in 1:35.52 under a hand ride and earned a 94 Beyer Speed Figure in the process.

Featured on the resumes of Grade 1 winners To Honor and Serve, Nobiz Like Shobiz, Bluegrass Cat and Coronado’s Quest, as well as Kentucky Derby winners Thunder Gulch, Pleasant Colony, Go for Gin, Northern Dancer and Carry Back, the Remsen also attracted several impressive maiden winners including Normandy Invasion, who rallied to post a 9 ¼-length maiden win on November 2 at the Big A.

Jose Lezcano will ride the Chad Brown trainee, the second choice at 3-1 on the morning line, from post position 10.

Rounding out the Remsen field are Irsaal, Vegas No Show, Keep the Canoli, Indy’s Illusion, Stormy Len and Quinzieme Monarque. 

 

What the Nation is saying about Repole Entry Headline Remsen Stakes...

I like Micomanage and Normandy here - Overanalyze is a good horse (and though I like the DU lineage) I think Micomanage has more to offer.
Surprise surprise. lol
