Right One Ready to Rumble in Jaipur

Right One will seek to defend his title in Friday's 29th running of the Grade 3, $150,000 Jaipur, a seven furlong turf race for 3-year-olds and up at Belmont Park.

 

With a strong third-place finish in the Grade 2 Commonwealth on April 14 at Keeneland, his first race in five months, Ghislaine Head’s Right One signaled he has lost none of his fire as a 6-year-old and is the 2-1 morning-line favorite for the Jaipur.

 

Right One, to be ridden by Julien Leparoux for trainer Christophe Clement, defeated Yield Bogey in the final jump last year and then finished third behind Turallure and Courageous Cat in the Grade 1 Woodbine Mile before tailing off the remainder of the year.

 

“He’s been training well; [The Commonwealth] was a good race to bring him back,” Clement said. “I think he had a nice prep race.”

 

Along with Yield Bogey, making his fourth start in the Jaipur, Right One will have to contend with Bergerac, an $80,000 claim at Gulfstream Park two races back by owner Paul Pompa and trainer Chad Brown.

 

Bergerac immediately paid dividends, finishing second in the Commonwealth, ahead of Right One.

 

“He comes in off a little layoff and not by design,” Brown said. “He missed an overnight race that got rained off the turf, so he missed his prep. He’s an older horse with plenty career starts under his belt, though, so at this age (5) he maintains his fitness.”

 

Bergerac, the 5-2 morning-line second choice, will be ridden by Javier Castellano from post position 7.

 

Also set for the Jaipur are Leave of Absence, Boots Ahead, Upgrade, Shintoh and Senor Dehere. Recent stakes winner Ponzi Scheme is entered Main Track Only.
